Don’t worry, we’ve got the ultimate creepy getup for your next Halloween party.
Grab your 80’s denim and get ready to socialize-er-basically-uh-takeover the bash as America’s Auntie Maxine.
What you’ll need: a pair of thick-frame glasses, bold lip, dark eyeliner, and a dusting of last week’s eyeshadow. As we said before, you can go the more relaxed route of the weekend edition Auntie Maxine, protesting with her hipster crew outside the Starbucks, by donning loads of denim on denim and pale pink, but if you find you can’t even wear a Canadian tuxedo in jest, try instead for Congresswoman Maxine Waters. Just add an I’m With Her pantsuit (opt for better tailoring though) to the thick-frames and eyeliner and you’re good to go.
What you should do: ask questions of the other guests, but before they can answer jump in with outbursts of, “Reclaiming my time!” Then repeat the question, and so on and so forth.
Pair this costume up with: a nicely haberdashed Frederica Wilson, or millennial sycophant wearing a tee with your face on it, one that will hang on your every word and fetch you drink after drink, while hashtaging the event for your public Instagram.
