I made this collage with shitty pixelized photos… who am i. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

I’m kind of a costume queen/snob as my fellow Chaminade alumni know (I rocked my outfits for Spirit weeks and Halloween), so I thought I should share some ideas that come to mind for clever, easy and mostly free costumes (I can’t say they are all appropriate, sorry mom).

I came up with them all by myself except for Tinderella and Pink Floyd (s/o Pinterest). I feel like the Sugar Daddy one has probably been done before, but except for the two stated above, I thought of these all on my own-enjoy!

Barney Sanders

Unknown-10 images-11

  1. Dress up in a green t-shirt and purple pants or leggings (or reverse)
  2. If you are swaggy as hell dress up in an actual Barney outfit
  3. Get a stick or something and tape a piece of paper on to it that says something like, “Sanders 2016” or print out his campaign logo and put it on the paper
    1. Take it a step further
    2. Steal your grandpa’s glasses and get a grey/white wig and cut off the front half (or just wear a bald cap and take random white fluff and glue it on to the back of the cap)


-wear a name-tag that says Barney Sanders

-make another stick with a paper on it (or just this one) that says something funny like, “I love you, you love me, let’s all build a socialist economy”
