Happy Halloween, PDers! If anyone knows how to legislate happy, it’s Venezuela’s own Nicolas Maduro, whom just earlier this week established a government ministry of Supreme Social Happiness. So in the off chance that you didn’t take a liking to any of our other creepy costume ideas, why not go for the Maduro?
We have a feeling you’ll be the life of the party.
What you’ll need: a windbreaker is paramount to this costume. Bonus points can be allotted for a windbreaker set in Venezuelan reds, blues, and yellows.
You’ll also need a parrot, either real (in which case you should take the time to teach it a few key phrases like, “Polly loves communism.”) or just a plush parrot to represent Maduro’s Chief Council Head— the reincarnated Hugo Chavez.
What you should do: From the moment you walk in the door, begin putting curses on those you do not like. During a lull in the festivities, be sure to clean out your host’s toilet paper stash. How dare they hoard it in a time of crisis?!
Pair this costume up with: well, if you didn’t opt for the parrot accessory, your companion could go as the parrot. Parrot costumes are relatively easy to throw together at the last minute, and if you have it on hand, you can always throw a comrade beret on to seal the look.
