Quick List: The Five Easiest (Laziest) Halloween Costumes

Halloween is just about a week away, and for those of you who haven’t ordered or started building something yet, it’s getting down to the wire. My assortment of fake weaponry is ready to go for my Nathan Drake get up, and my girlfriend’s mystery costume(s) from Yandy have just arrived.

But never fear, shitty planners among you. I’m here to save the day with five quick Halloween costume ideas. None of these involve a shirt that says “Go Ceilings!” or any other such terrible puns. Just the easiest movie/TV based costumes you can create in a matter of minutes.

1. Three Hole Punch Jim – Jim demonstrates this easy costume above, which is classic Office from like five years ago when it was my favorite show on TV. You need black paper, scissors and tape. The end.

2. Maverick – Jeans, white T-shirt, aviators and a nice jawline

3. The Dude – Bathrobe, White Russian, maybe a gun. Preferably a few extra pounds and inches of hair.

4. Blues Brother – Suit, sunglasses. Say your hat blew off in the wind. Or walk around with a silver metal pen and you’re from Men in Black

5. Gustavo Fring – Suit, spectacles, the correct skin color. Super bonus points for buying some zombie make-up and going as season finale Gus.

  1. The cooler breaking bad costume would be Hector Salamanca. All you need is a wheelchair with a bell attached.
    My personal choice, if I wasn’t a crochety old man that hated Halloween, would be to wear a gas mask and just keep saying “Are you my mummy?” If you heed the advice of basically everyone in yesterday’s debate of the day and watched Doctor Who you would understand that costume Paul.
    Or you could be like abed and make yourself a felt goatee and be your evil self.

  2. I actually did “evil self” about six years ago. It’s remarkably easy. I haven’t seen the last two weeks of Community, so I didn’t realize Abed had done it too!

    Although, I have to mention that The Dude isn’t really down with firearms, man. All you need is the robe, Caucasian, sunglasses, and maybe a CCR tape. Or a rug/bowling ball/bag of dirty underwear, if you feel like lugging one around. Walter can carry the gun.

  3. I would have to say that Jim’s costume in Season 2 when he was “Dave” would be much easier than all of these, including three-hole punch Jim. Just slap a nametag on your shirt with Dave written on it and you are going as “Dave” – would take less time than cutting three circles and taping them.

  4. “Blues Brother – Suit, sunglasses…Or walk around with a silver metal pen and you’re from Men in Black”

    A tire gauge served me well one year when I went as Agent K.

  5. I’m going as Travis Bickle from Taxi Driver. Vietnam era soldier jacket, blue jeans, collared white dress shirt, aviator sunglasses. I’m not going all the way and shaving my head, though 🙁 Probably no one will get it but at least I’ll look semi normal otherwise. If I had a beret, I’d change the pants to cargos and go as Bill from Left 4 Dead.

  6. Wednesday Adams ensured that I would always be covered for Halloween for the rest of my life:

    “I’m a homicidal maniac – they look just like everyone else.”
