I have donned many a get-up for Halloween:
Britney Spears at the Superbowl
Pam Anderson in the pink furry hat
Madonna, ConeBra Era
You get the picture. Give me a chance to slut it up and play blonde bombshell for a day, and I’ll take it. (Though nothing as absurd and gratuitous as, say, a Sexy Eskimo - what?!)
But I’m considering a different avenue this year and dressing as…an airbrushed celeb!!
Honestly, this costume is sheer genius. It’s smart, snarky, makes a statement and doesn’t require you to walk around half-naked (unlike every Halloween costume I’ve worn since being a blue Crayon in fifth grade). Get a bunch of friends and have one go as your publicist, another as your Sugar Free Red Bull and a third as your Blackberry and your team is a shoo-in to win free shots at any bar you go to.
Some other fun diet/fitness-inspired Halloween costume ideas:
The Swine Flu
“That guy” at the gym (ya know, the one who wears a shredded tank, ripped jean cut-off shorts, construction boots and eats a Snickers between sets)
A piece of sushi
Yoga instructor (Great excuse to go shopping at Lucy!)
A slinky barista (serving non-fat, sugar-free lattes, of course!)
Sooo…what crazy costume might I find you in this year?
