Halloween 2015 Costumes Only People from Jersey Will Appreciate
Halloween will be here before you know it, and a lot of people are already starting to think about who – or what – they should dress up as this year.
We thought of a few that anyone in Jersey can appreciate!
Mary Lee the Shark
Back in May, all eyes were on the water, looking for our new favorite Great White, Mary Lee! Grab yourself a shark costume and a name tag, and make some waves at a local Halloween party!
Whether you go as table-flipping Teresa, jailbird Teresa, or somewhere in between, the possibilities are endless when you channel the Real Housewives of NJ! Must-haves: big hair, leopard print, plenty of eyeliner, and gold jewelry or... a prison uniform.
Chris Christie (or his Ego)
Especially with his presidential run underway, Chris Christie continues to make headlines, so why not spend Halloween portraying Jersey's most famous politician? Must-haves: a generally round shape, white button-down shirt with tie, suit jacket, and dark pants belted at the waist. Don't forget the obligatory American flag pin. You could go a step further and carry around a faux-door frame to go as his ego... (Because it can't fit through the door. Get it?)
The key to this one is the creativity. Do you go with the super dark fake tan, neon tank top, and sunglasses inside? Maybe channel the seagull feeders by toting along a stuffed bird? You could always spend your whole night walking half as slow as the people behind you and not allowing anyone get around you. No matter what you wear, you'll need to be as loud and obnoxious as possible, and leave a trail of garbage everywhere you go. (P.S. Save the angry comments. I didn't use the term, and it's not my fault if it popped into your head!)
For better or worse, Asbury Park is hipster central at the Jersey Shore! This costume is more about the better-than-thou brand of hipster, and is entirely too fun, mostly because those types won't get it at all. Must-haves: skinny jeans, plaid, Tillie tattoo, vinyl albums by the greatest bands ever that no one else has ever heard of, and a raging superiority complex. Beard optional.
Bonus: Donald Trump's Hair
It has little to do with Jersey, but it's funny nonetheless, and I'm hoping to see lots of traveling toupees this Halloween!
