Easy Political Halloween Costumes That You Can Thot Up Or Down As You Please

Halloween really snuck up on us this year, and if you’re as busy as I am, you’ve found yourself scrambling for a costume as the festivities draw near. Let’s face it; all of the iParties and costume shops are completely sold out of anything worth wearing and nothing you order online will get here in time. But fear not, exhausted politico! These are some simple, affordable costume ideas that can be customized to fit your preferred degree of thottery. Because after all

Hillary’s Deleted Emails

What you’ll need

White clothes
A white poster
Markers (red and black)
A rope (or something to tie the poster board around your neck with)

Get a basic rectangular white poster board and draw lines on it that make it look like an envelope, then write [DELETED] in big, bold red letters. Cut some holes in it for string/rope to tie around your neck, and voila! You’ve got a costume. The white makes it look more intentional and less like something you half assed a half hour before heading to the bar/party.

How to thot it up

A bodycon white dress OR if you’re feeling extra thotful, a white bralette/crop top and a tutu.

Basket of Deplorables

What you’ll need

A big basket (straw or fabric will probably be easiest to work with)
A shirt you don’t care about
Rope (or something comparable to tie the basket to either your neck or arms)
A Trump hat (optional)
Cut outs of Pepe the Frog & Trump (optional)

Get a big laundry basket from Walmart or another cheap store and cut a giant hole in the bottom for your legs. Use rope or something comparable so that you will tie to the handles of the basket and either around your neck or arms so that you won’t have to carry it around all night. Write “DEPLORABLE” on a shirt and wear a Trump hat. Decorate the basket with cutouts of Trump and Pepe The Frog.

How to thot it up

Make the shirt a crop top, or for extra thot points where a bralette and write DEPLORABLE on your chest or stomach.

Trump Wall

There are a couple of ways this could be approached.

The lazy way: Get a dress or bodysuit; preferably white, black, gray, brown, nude or red. Get fabric markers or crayons and draw a wall pattern all over it. Feel free to write something like “Make America Great Again,” “Big Beautiful Wall,” or “Mexico Will Pay For It,” on the back or front of the dress. You can find cheap ones that you won’t care about at stores that teen moms with upper lip piercings shop at.

The less lazy way: Use a dress (of the same color palette previously described) that you actually like and find a large piece of fabric/bed sheet of a similar color. Cut it so that you can wear it as an arm cape without it dragging on the floor. Get fabric markers/crayons and draw the wall pattern on the fabric of your cape. Once again, feel free to throw a Trump phrase on the back of that bad boy.

Trump Wall Construction Worker

This could also go a few different ways as well.

1) Trump hat and construction vest.

2) Hard hat and Trump shirt

It’s probably not the best idea for a drunk person to be walking around with construction tools, so unless you’re the DD, leave the hammer at home (but why is anyone DDing on Halloweekend? Get a damn Uber and live your life). Some more realistic accessories would be an empty tool box, construction gloves, or a ruler.

How to thot it up

High wasted denim shorts or very holey jeans/overalls and either a crop top/bralette depending on which approach you chose.

Marco Rubio

What you’ll need

A blazer
A tie
Plastic water bottle
The ability to repeat the same phrase all night

This is probably one of the easiest costumes, and even though only your political friends will get it, they’ll still appreciate it.

How to thot it up

High socks, mini skirt, bralette

Zodiac Killer Victim

What you’ll need

Fake blood or something that will look like it
Fake bruises (optional)

Wear whatever you want and thot it up as you see fit. Put fake blood/bruises on your face and body. Draw the Zodiac Killer’s signs on your face or body. TADA!!! Teddy Cruz killed you just like his dad killed JFK.

Basement Dweller

What you’ll need

Bag of chips

Again, extremely straightforward. For some extra points, maybe throw in some Bernie paraphernalia.

How to thot it up

Thigh highs and lingerie instead of pajamas/a big t shirt underneath

Hillary Clinton’s Nurse

What you’ll need

Regular nurse costume
Hillary sticker

If you need me to explain this you probably shouldn’t be on in the internet unsupervised.

How to thot it up

White thigh highs, pumps, show cleave

A Russian Hacker

What you’ll need

A big furry hat
A big furry coat OR trench coat
A walkie talkie and/or earpiece
Brief case (optional)

How to thot it up

I feel like this should be obvious enough by now, but a tight dress or lingerie if you want to go the extra thirsty for attention mile. Thigh highs work too.

  • “When I told your father I was pregnant he told me to get an abortion. After you were born he told me he had never been more wrong about anything in his life.” I’m pro-life, and I always have been. My mom was starting law school at Brown when she got pregnant with me a year younger than I am now. My biological father...wasn’t exactly boyfriend of the year to put things lightly, and as an Ivy League grad the world was literally my mom’s oyster. She was extremely religious and went to a very conservative church where a child out of wedlock would turn her into an outcast. Because like every last professed pro-life Christian, she wasn’t perfect. But this wouldn’t be a sin that she could hide or bury. She had every reason to make that appointment, but she chose not to.

Fast forward 24 years, and a really good friend of mine got pregnant at the same age my mom did, and I assumed she would keep it. She was in a stable relationship and even told me she wanted to start a family soon. And according to almost every conversation we’d ever had on the subject, she was pro life too. But she was panicking, and almost overnight her entire perspective changed. Ironically enough, just days before I attended my first March for Life, a good friend of mine got an abortion.

And I won’t lie; I was disappointed. Because like most abortions, it wasn’t the result of some freak accident of properly used but failed birth control. She was being careless. And while I did my best to make the case for keeping it without pressuring her, I completely understood her decision and didn’t judge her for a minute. Because what my friend needed more than opinions or condemnation was my support.

I am pro life, and I always have been. My views didn’t change, but my attitude did. I realized that week, after taking frantic phone call after frantic phone call, that life happens in a lot of different directions. Life happening for my mom meant a child at 24 and dropping out of law school. Life happening for my friend meant an abortion. And part of being pro life — for me at least — is being there for people in your life even when it challenges you.
