It’s that time of year again. Halloween is coming. Whether you plan on trick-or-treating or attending Currier’s Heaven and Hell, you probably need to start looking for a costume soon. If you’re tired of being a nurse, and you don’t want to join the mob of Lady Gagas, then we have a few suggestions for you.

Cigar Guy

Many of you have probably seen the now-famous picture of Tiger Woods hitting a golf ball directly into the lens of a nearby cameraman. However, the best part about this picture might not be the golf ball. Standing in the crowd on the right-hand side of the photo is a man known on the Internet as “Cigar Guy.” Halloween costume, anyone?


Okay, it sounds weird, but what Harvard student hasn’t dreamt of dressing as a “membrane-enclosed organelle found in most eukaryotic cells?” But seriously, Jack Black did it, and the profits from the costumes go to help kids with mitochondrial disorders. Plus, maybe you’ll get the attention of your cute TF.

Adam Wheeler

Okay, so maybe nobody from outside of Harvard will get it, but dressing up as Adam Wheeler is an option. Wear a white t-shirt, hand out fake resumes, and make sure that your eyes are as wide as you can possibly make them.

Tiger Woods

If you don’t like Cigar Guy, dress up as Tiger Woods. Just wear a polo shirt, khakis, and a cap, and walk around with five or six blonde women. If you can’t find real women, barbies make good substitutes.

The House from Disney Pixar’s UP

Who didn’t love this movie? Though you could always dress up as Buzz or Woody from this year’s Toy Story 3, this costume, made to look like The House from UP is a much more creative option. Just put together a cardboard house and tie on some helium-filled balloons, and you’ll be ready to go.

If none of these costumes does it for you, you can always go with Snooki, Justin Bieber, a character from Mad Men, or the classic “nudist on strike” (just dress normally).
