Carrie

Sometimes people are pushed to the brink and for 17-year-old Carrie it was prom night. While her classmates may have thought otherwise, Carrie’s homemade prom dress was actually quite nice. However, if you don’t want to be confused for just any prom queen then you need to cover yourself in fake blood. As for acquiring telekinesis, you’re on your own with that one.

Droogs

Alex and his droogs didn’t make a lot of wise choices in A Clockwork Orange. In fact, even their attire was questionable. If you’ve always wanted a reason to wear your jockstrap on the outside of your pants, then dressing like a droog is for you. Complete the outfit with a bowler hat and cane but then stop there, this is one costume where acting the part is discouraged.

John Hammond

John Hammond had good intentions when he decided to resurrect dinosaurs but as we all know things didn’t go as planned. However, John did somehow manage to keep his clothes relatively white despite all of the chaos. If you’re bold enough to pull off an all white wardrobe, perhaps you’re also willing to test your craft skills and recreate John Hammond’s famous amber mosquito cane. Don’t worry, no one will expect you to clone a T-Rex.

Dr. Alan Grant

World renown paleontologist, Dr. Alan Grant, is passionate about his career but fashion, not so much. Fitting the stereotype of what you’d expect to see at an archaeological dig, Dr. Grant’s attire is logical and relatively easy to pull off. Of course, this look also gives you an excuse to wear a denim shirt without your friends making fun of you.

Roger Rabbit

Overly anxious and a lightweight when it comes to drinking, Roger Rabbit is the way to go if you’re into dressing like a cartoon rabbit. Not only do you get to pretend you have a bombshell wife but you also have an excuse to wear red overalls. Plus you can pretend your social anxiety is part of your character. Don’t forget to stutter!

Jessica Rabbit

Jessica Rabbit’s sultry style translates well into the real world. A red sequined dress paired with long purple gloves is likely to make a few jaws drop. Top the look off with red lipstick and people may even let you get away with marrying a rabbit. Then again, this isn’t Toontown.

McPoyles

The McPoyles cross a new level of creepy. They always look greasy. They wear their pajamas in public and they’re obsessed with milk. If you’re into making people uncomfortable then their style is the way to go. However, you may want to steer clear of that whole incest thing. That’s a little too in character.

Maureen Ponderosa

In It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Maureen Ponderosa (Catherine Reitman) was making her own cat sweatshirts before it became an ironic fashion statement. Now these feline sweatshirts are flying off the shelves. You may have to add your own glitter for it to be a truly authentic Maureen creation. Don’t forget the black tooth to bring the entire look together. The bad breath is optional.

Allison Reynolds

If you’re not into wearing color and you like to be the “weird girl” then Allison Reynolds’ look is the one for you. The key is to wear clothes that are a little too big for you and to make sure you carry a giant purse full of nonsensical stuff. We will leave it up to you whether or not you want to go all the way and include the dandruff.

Emily the Strange

Emily the Strange has a style that has inspired a new generation of little goth girls. She’s a mysterious character but her look is easy to achieve. It’s getting a colony of black cats to follow you around that might be the problem. Luckily you can purchase a few stuffed ones to complete your costume.
