Political Couples Halloween Costumes

It’s been an exhaustingly political year. You can’t go a day without a new trending topic or viral video or Facebook essays from your high school classmates somehow relating to politics. And it’s annoying. But now that we’re nearing the middle of October, there’s a silver lining to the politicization of everything. These rapid fire news cycles means the well of costume ideas never runs dry. So without further ado, here are some political couples Halloween costumes that you can try with your lover, bestie or side piece.

Mike pence + Bunny

For Mike Pence, you’ll need a white wig and a blazer. For the bunny, you’ll need bunny ears and maybe a cotton ball to tape to your butt. For extra points, you can turn it into a Playboy Bunny.

Ted Cruz + Porn Star

Almost an exact month ago, porn gate occurred, and no matter where you stood ideologically, it was much needed comic relief. If you really want to go the extra mile with it, get a Ted Cruz mask or draw zodiac signs on your face. If not, a dark suit and maybe some cowboy boots should do the trick. The porn star should have a blonde wig, a red unbuttoned blouse and a blue skirt. And voila.

Pocahontas + Bernie 

For Pocahontas you’ll need a short blonde wig, a blazer, some kind of Native looking headpiece, and a fringe skirt. For Bernie you can try a Che shirt with a blazer and bald cap.

Kathy griffin + bloody trump

Who could forget Kathy posing with Trump’s severed, bloody head earlier this summer, then playing the victim when it blew up in her face? Trump just needs a Trump wig and a lot of fake blood. Kathy just needs a red wig and maybe a shirt that says “he broke me.”

Pepe + Milk

One of the most entertaining things about this year has been seeing the left lose its mind and become the conspiracy theorists that they accuse the right of being. Verified Twitter liberals came to the conclusion that milk and Pepe the frog were symbols of white supremacy earlier this year. And while white supremacists have begun adopting these symbols, it was only after the fact to mock the people that started these ridiculous stories in the first place. There are a lot of different ways to go about this. You could order legit Pepe and milk costumes. One of you could dress in all green while the other dressed in all white, and even use body paint.

Alt Right Protester + Antifa Protester

It goes without saying that this is a very controversial choice, but if you’re in the mood to push the limits, and everyone knows you aren’t actually a racist anti-semitic ethnic nationalist, it might be fun. The alt right protester will need a white polo, khakis and a tiki torch. The antifa protester should be dressed in black with a sign with a stupid slogan on it and a bandana tied around their face.

Trump Hollywood Star + Makenna Greenwald (Nothing But Respect For MY President)

The Trump Hollywood Star should wear make the star out of cardboard and hang it around their neck or draw one on a shirt. Makenna Greenwald should wear a sun hat, shorts and a shirt that says “nothing but respect for MY president.” For extra points bring cleaning products with you.

Nancy Pelosi + Chuck Schumer

Two dinosaur costumes with name tags should do the trick.

  • I know that posting selfies is like tacky or whatever but this is the only pic I have of me from this night and I look cute and I’m also having a terrible week so like...let me live and just like my pic lol
  • *******long caption warning******
On August 10th I applied to a job, not thinking much of it. It was just another click on LinkedIn that I doubted would lead anywhere. •
•
On August 25th, HR contacted me while I was on my way to visit a friend. I was actually pre-annoyed, assuming it would just be another disappointment and waste of time and energy. But I sent in my cover letter and writing test anyway.
•
•
On August 30th, I had my phone interview, and for the first time in a long time, I was actually optimistic. I knew I had nailed it, and this wasn’t a job I was entertaining because I needed the money — I actually wanted it. I couldn’t keep my excitement to myself. •
•
On September 21st I flew down for my interview, and actually cancelled another interview in the area because I didn’t want to waste my time. I knew what I wanted. •
•
And on September 27th I was offered the job. •
•
But throughout this process, as hard as I worked and as hard as I tried to prove myself, I was anything but self assured. Up until the day I got the call, I was frantically checking my email, bracing myself for the ever dreaded “we’ve decided to move forward with other candidates.” •
•
I had actually forgotten my own value, because it had been so long since someone else had recognized it...and weirdly enough it felt that much better when I was finally reminded of who I am and what I’m capable of.
•
•
Now I’m a fundraiser and no offense but I’m like...fucking killing it...in a $40B industry...for causes I actually care about.
•
•
The fear and insecurity so many of us feel at this stage of our lives can be debilitating, but it’s also what makes our successes that much sweeter.
•
•
I failed and was rejected month after month and was scared to death that I would be a loser for the rest of my life.
•
•
It’s ok to be afraid, but it’s never ok to stop trying #deadass #myguy
  • I donut want to be a productive member of society today 😭
  • Help me find this Cindy Lou Who lookalike aka my platonic soulmate that stalked waiters handing our hors d’oeuvres with me at this Christmas party that I unfortunately met before the smartphone era 😩🙏🏾 @theellenshow @realdonaldtrump
  • Honestly keep your tax and healthcare reform and just give me brunch 7 days a week and we can call it even
  • ********long ass caption warning ******** I’m a digital copywriter for a conservative fundraising firm. I’ll leave it at the fact that it’s lit and I’m doing well to avoid sounding like a 🍆. •
•
I don’t like announcing tingz on social media outside of the realm of me wanting Taco Bell and a boyfriend, but I know a lot of people that graduated with me are struggling with their careers and a sense of direction whether or not they ever admit it. •
•
At my last job I never felt good enough, and part of that was definitely my fault. But it also just wasn’t what I was supposed to be doing. I learned A LOT and worked with brilliant people, but I genuinely feel like I had no opportunities to utilize my talents. •
•
It’s like night and day compared to my current job, that I’ve been at for a month and my manager is already having conversations with the CEO about my future and potential for growth at the company. •
•
As long as it took me to find it, I’m doing something related to my degree that I’m actually good at and that I enjoy. (Money, politics, and writing...I mean come on now) •
•
As bleak as your options may feel at the moment — I genuinely believe there’s something out there for everyone. Sometimes you suck, sometimes your job sucks, but sometimes you just haven’t found where you belong yet
  • When the fake oppressed alt right crybabies hate you and the fake oppressed social justice crybabies hate you it’s a good sign that you’re probably right 🤷🏾‍♀️
