Halloween in the Bluegrass

Rather it's risque or risk free, for a party with friends or a party of one, a Halloween costume is a big deal. If you're anything like me, you've been trying to figure out what to wear for Halloween since last November 1st. Here are some safe bets from local Bluegrass heroes when it comes to costumes to help you out at the last minute:

Political figures: It is always easy to find fun in the nearest politician. Rather you're going with a Bush mask, Obama outfit, or simply your favorite dictator, the world is full of egos more cartoonish than Disneyland.

Celebrities: You're probably going to a party 'in character' but what character will you be? Well the answer is as close as your remote control. Flip on your favorite movie or TV show and use one of your favorite personalities!
Pop Culture/Historical Figures: Rather you are a history buff or current events king, use the people in your life or events that have taken place in the world gather inspiration.
Couples Costumes: Going to the party with someone, well you're likely to want everyone to know you are together. Never fear, use the same ideas but pull from couples!

Life Size: If you have a job or hobby that is fun and can be made fun of, use it! Exaggerate your props and spicy up the outfit and voila!

Generic Costume: Ok, so you haven't spun any custom creative genius from the other items, Your Superman is as close as your nearest costume shop. You'll be sure to find many generic outfits to save the day.



  1. Kudos to you, sir. One of your best to date. I especially liked Matt Jones and Tony Woods.

  2. Lol, my personal favorite was Jurich. He fit into Chavez outfit way too well and easy. Matt Jones' costume was a close second though :)

  3. Jurich looks right at home in that Socialist garb.
