The Chicken Lady from The Kids in the Hall

In The Kids in the Hall, the Chicken Lady (Mark McKinney) is half man, half chicken. Apparently the offspring of a farmer and a hen, she’s the size of a human adult, smart as a bird, and sexually obsessed. For this costume you’ll need the wardrobe of an older lady and feathers, lots of feathers.

Stefon from SNL

Stefon is a character in the comedy show Saturday Night Live. Flamboyant yet anxious, he makes several appearances on Weekend Update with Seth Meyers as the city correspondent. Created and portrayed by Bill Hader — with the help of John Mulaney — Stefon shares his favorite destinations for tourists coming to New York City. These places often include bizarre parties and nightclubs. He speaks in a soft, high voice and often puts his hands over his mouth. The exact Ed Hardy python shirt is really hard to find, so we suggest layering an olive green t-shirt over a graphic long sleeve shirt to mimic it.

The Roxbury Guys

Before the movie A Night at the Roxbury premiered, the Roxbury Guys were tearing up the dance floor on Saturday Night Live. While Will Ferrell and Chris Kattan played the brothers Steve and Doug Butabi, they were also often joined by other SNL cast members and hosts including Jim Carrey in one of the most iconic versions of the skit. To hang at the Roxbury, you need a fitted black t-shirt, thick silver chain, and an oversized two-piece suit (the shinier the better), not to mention plenty of hair gel to keep your strands in place while you bop along to “What is Love.”

David S. Pumpkins

David S. Pumpkins is a character played by Tom Hanks in Saturday Night live. He is an enigmatic man who terrorizes guests on a haunted elevator attraction. He’s backed by two dancing skeleton cronies. He’s gonna scare the hell out of YOU! Be sure to trim the wig. Act fast, as the pumpkin suit is quickly selling out and it’s unknown when it will be back in stock.

Matt Foley

On Saturday Night Live, Matt Foley (Chris Farley) is a motivational speaker with all the wrong qualities. He’s disheveled, eats a steady diet of government cheese, and lives in a van down by the river. If you’re doing any better, well whoop-dee-frickin-doo!

The Church Lady

On Saturday Night Live, Enid Strict (Dana Carvey), better known as The Church Lady, hosted the talk show Church Chat where she would interview celebrities. And by interviews, I mean she would chastise them for their sins and admonish them for following the desires of their naughty parts. If you’re going to dress up as The Church Lady, make sure you have her catchphrases, like “Could it be… SATAN?” down pat as well as the moves for the “Superior Dance”.

MacGruber

MacGruber (Will Forte) is the son of the famed MacGyver. Like his father, he often finds himself trapped in a control room with a ticking time bomb. Unlike his father, he brings his troubled home life with him to work.

Hans and Franz

On Saturday Night Live, Hans and Franz (Dana Carvey and Kevin Nealon) are a pair of Austrian bodybuilders who flex their muscles for skinny “girlie men” and teach how to “pump you up”. Any resemblance to Arnold Schwarzenegger is strictly coincidental.

Tight Pants Jimmy Fallon

“Everybody’s talking about his tight pants.” Well it’s hard not to talk about or look at Jimmy Fallon’s tight white pants especially when he’s performing those hip shaking moves. Now, the important question is who wore it better – Will Ferrell or Jennifer Lopez?

Magic Shia LaBeouf

On Saturday Night Live, Shia LaBeouf plays a fanciful magician. His most famous act is taking your age and subtracting 2. Add 2 again, and you get your real age. Magic!
