You know how it is—every Halloween, when you show up to a party and it seems like a dozen people are all wearing the same very topical costume. One year it's Borat, the next it's Sarah Palin, or the rednecks from Honey Boo Boo. Don't be that guy (or girl). You're better than that. Halloween is a time to have fun, experiment, and do something creative. Don't half-ass it by going for the easy idea, buying a costume in a bag, or leaving it to the last minute so you have to get inventive with what's already in your closet.
