    Got roped into a costume party and would rather not go in some ridiculous animal or monster suit. Barring the usual vampire garb, what are some ideas for a good yet still stylish costume?

    I thought of going as [​IMG] with a sign saying "I am the 1%", but decided against it just in case I get lynched.

    Ideas?

    I am going as Col. Saunders. Part of a Group Costume: Col. Saunders, Ronald McDonald, Jack in the Box, Burger King, Wendy

    Other Ideas that you probably already have a costume for

    Get a Fake Axe and go as American Psycho
    Most interesting man in the world from Dos Equis
    Nucky Thompson from Boardwalk Empire
    Steven Corbert

    With that ensemble I assume you've seen this. If not, consider it research and enjoy.

    Patrick Bateman.

    Or something similar to Patrick Bateman's costume as a mass murderer (I think he just did a suit with body parts draped over himself, locks of hair for a pocket square, etc.).

    I'm going as Anderson Cooper. You can just wear a suit and get some cheap washable hairspray to turn your hair white.

    MacGruber. That's who I'm going to be. I just need to pick up an AmJack flannel, a blonde mullet wig, and I'm good to go.

    Mayhem, Nice...Did you carry the 2.5lb pink dumbbells around? I imagine it makes it harder to carry around a drink.

    I only had one. It was surprisingly hard to find pink dumbbells. I lost it like halfway through the night though and for a few hours I just looked like an effeminate, beat up homeless man.

    Given some of the stuff that gets posted here, it's hard to believe that any SF members need ideas on how to dress in costume.

    Fair enough, i'm sure he can just show up as sartorially inclined gentlemen, that's definitely something you don't see everyday :happy:
