Halloween is just around the cobwebbed corner—do you know what you're going to be? If not, use the process of elimination to help with your decision-making. Check out this article at Gawker.com to see the seven Halloween costumes you must avoid at all costs. What's that you say? You already bought a Michael Jackson wig and vampire face paint? Return it—stat!
I shouldn't have to tell you this, but Sarah Palin is so last year. I don't care if you look like her identical twin sister and have Tina Fey's SNL skit committed to memory—DO NOT GO THERE. No one wants to see it.
When I wrote this post, I was clueless as to what I was going to be for Halloween; however, I have finally reached a decision. I'm not going to tell you what it is, obviously, but I will say that I'm taking a more creative route. (At least I think I am—watch hundreds of New Yorkers have the exact same idea!) I just found out last night that the party I'm going to will be a more fashion-y crowd. I'm not sure if my homemade costume will fit in with this group, but then again, I'm not wearing it to blend in. I'm out to make a statement, baby!
So tell me: What are you going to be for Halloween? What are some of the most cliche ideas you've heard of so far?
