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.

  • “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.
