When picking your Halloween costume there is a lot to consider.
First, how much time and money do you want to allocate to it? How political do you want be? Will fellow party guests understand who you are if you show up in aviators and offer everyone Kool Aid? How into Halloween are you really? Is this a night for creativity and heated debate, or just an excuse to get wasted and stuff your face with candy corn?
Well, if you fall into that last camp don’t worry, PD has the costume for you.
Show up to your friend’s bash already three sheets to the wind, as Miloš Zeman the current President of the Czech Republic, whom not only shows up to State functions trashed, but who also is plastered (and not in the good Winston Churchill way) the rest of the time.
What you’ll need: Zeman, having only recently turned 70, requires only a suit and a few liver spots.
What you should do: Play up the role of old man drunkard, by passing out mid-conversation with others. Pound back as much vodka, Becherovka, Fernet, and Slivovitz as your capillaries can stand, then drink a little more. As the party carries on, grab forty winks underneath the punchbowl.
Pair this costume up with: Give your best friend a bow tie and cigar and have him go as Karel Schwarzenberg, Zeman’s political foe and the Prince of Schwarzenberg. He’s also a member of the Order of the Golden Fleece, so if that doesn’t say politician, what else does?
