For Your Consideration

Ladies: Halloween is almost upon us. Have you picked out your costume yet? If you answered “Yes” and are going as Slave Leia, you can stop reading this blog right now. If you answered “No” or are not dressing up as Slave Leia this year, perhaps you should consider (or reconsider) making golden metal bikini a part – but preferably the whole – of your costume.

With Halloween so close though, there’s a chance you may not be able to find the requisit attire. In that case, allow me to suggest a few alternative costumes.

Jennifer Beals from Flash Dance

Need I say more?

Sigourney Weaver from Alien

The hardest part about this costume is finding a big effing gun to carry around all night. But with a little diligence, you should be able to find something serviceable at a costume shop. Once you’ve found that, all you’ll need is a white tanktop and panties. Voila! You’ve now got an Ellen Ripley costume.

Kelly McGillis from Top Gun

I’ll be honest, I can’t even remember the name of character Kelly McGillis played in Top Gun, but she was hot, and that’s all that really matters. For this costume to work, my first suggestion is be blonde. Next, convince your date to dress up as Maverick. That shouldn’t too hard; Maverick is awesome! You now should have all the elements you’ll need to pull off this costume.

If you want to get really fancy, bring a boombox to the party and have “Danger Zone” by Kenny Loggins on a loop. Who cares if it annoys the other party-goers?! You’ll be rocking one of the collest couples costume ever!
