Sarah Harman is like the Giving Tree in her generosity, only instead of shelter and companionship she dispenses good Halloween costumes. She wrote about Halloween costumes in this week’s Voice, and she’s back to share more:
Norovirus Health Inspector.
Wear rubber kitchen gloves, lab goggles, and cover your entire body in a trash bag. Cough on all the candy while handing out tiny bottles of Purell.
Humbert Humbert and Lolita.
He wears a prison jump-suit, she rocks heart-shaped glasses a la Dominique Swain and sucks a lollipop.
The HPV vaccine
Dressing up like a giant injection needle will provide ample opportunities to use corny pick up lines( “just let me put the tip in”). Bonus group costume: have someone dress as Mayor Fenty and shove you in to school children.
Kim Jong Il
Wear head-to-toe khaki and walk on your knees. Carry around a copy of the State Department’s Terrorist Sponsor list. Jump up and down excitedly. Laugh condescendingly at anyone who doesn’t “get it.”
