Celebs & Other Ideas for Great Halloween Costumes

We’ve had about 32,000 emails and counting asking us to give our halloween costume advice.  Here’s a few costume ideas for you.

Justin Timberlake circa N'Sync. Remember when JT was a total D-bag? Throw on some coloured shades, lighten your locks and and set your perm to overdrive. Go ahead and bring sexy waaay back.
Carlton Banks. I don't need to explain this one. Throw a geeky sweater around your neck grow a douchey moustache and your set. If you are short and african american this works best. If not you might not get the same effect. We here at design chicks do not suggest painting black face. It does not go over well in social situations.
Russell Brand
Russell Brand. Same deal, pretty easy stuff. Scruff up your hair or get a wig, don't shave, squeeze into some skinny jeans and act like a total british douchebag all night. Bonus** This is also a great couples costume, get your gal to throw on a blue or pink or purple or yellow wig and Katie Perry's your biaatch.
Holiday Armadillo. I'm not sure were you can find an armadillo costume...but if you can let me know, because I'm pretty sure this is what I'm going to go as next year. Brilliant.
Dumb & Dumber Get a bright coloured suit and matching hat and Bob is your uncle.
Carrot Top This costume is easy if you are a buff guy. Strap on a disgusting orange clown wig, a beater and spray tan the bejesus out of yourself. Top it off by putting a little eyeliner over your eyebrows and pesto! You've got yourself a douchey vegetable.
Mike Tyson. If you are bald this is easy. If you're black even better. I think the tattoo on your face is really all you need. Great costume for babies.
Lady Gaga a la kermit. Ever wonder what you should do with all the leftover muppetry you have lying around from your childhood? Well, I've got the answer. Staple gun it to yourself and go as Lady Gaga for halloween.
Troy Polamalu. Epic curly hair and a Pittsburg Steelers Jersey enough said. Carry around a Head & Shoulders bottle for the night for bonus points.
Ellen Degeneres. Clearly more funny if a guy goes as Ellen. Grab a pant suit - sport a short blond bob and do as many table dances as you can throughout the night.
Kenneth Parcell from 30 Rock. Wear a suit, a funny tie, make an NBC clip and badge and you're good to go. This costume would be amazing for any guy (or lesbian) with an extreme overbite.
I didn't know I was pregnant. We saved the best for last. Sport a mumu over a fat suit and strategically place a babies head peaking out the bottom. What the heck is that doing there? Wha? I didn't know I was preggers!


  1. hot damn! what a great post!
    I had zero costume ideas, now I have 12!
    Im thinking of being the last one, considering its already happened to me! I think my friends will really get a kick out of it, they’d be all “lucy, not again!”. And I’d be all “I know right! how am I supposed to know when Im pregs! its so confusing!”
    thanks design chicks!!!!

  2. For even more bonus Polamalu points have a friend dress up as fellow Steelers DE Brett Keisel and rock an epic curly beard – also equipped with a bottle of Head & Shoulders of course. BOOM!

  3. Great ideas!
    Im an avid lesbian and I plan on being ellen for halloween. Maybe it will help me to pick up a few lesbian numbers. yeehaw!
