Jersey Shore Snooki – Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi is the most recognizable and most likable star of the MTV reality show, the Jersey Shore. A show that people watch when they have too much time on their hands or when they want to feel good about themselves. Kidding. Seriously though, hopefully no one’s kids are watching this show. Regardless, Snooki makes for a good cheap Halloween costume. All you need is some big hair, an over-the-top outfit, lot’s of spray on tan, and you are ready to go.
Twilight Vampires – This one is probably getting old. What are they on, like movie #15? Anyway, it’s a great cheap costume idea though. And you no longer have to dork out like I did back in the 80s. All I had was Count Von Count from Sesame Street as a model. Now we have emo-faced teens with good hair sporting the look in a bunch of books and movies. Grab your wife’s powder and eye liner and go to town. I dare you.
Justin Bieber – Teen pop sensation, Justin Bieber, is begging to be mocked with that perfectly combed-forward hair and bubble gum pop song collection. If you don’t have the long hair for it, find a cheap or used wig to use. I’m begging someone to show up as middle-aged, has-been Bieber.
Despicable Me Minions – This one might be a bit hard to pull off doing it yourself. But the basic idea is simple: overalls (with the little G” symbol), goggles, and gloves.
Yo Gabba Gabba Characters – Another one for the kids (or kids at heart). Have you seen these Yo Gabba Gabba characters? One weird show, but the kids love it. These costumes look pretty hard to pull off, but someone actually made their own Muno costume. Looks pretty good.
