Snooki & The Situation from Jersey Shore: Bronzer. Ed Hardy shirt. Uggs. More bronzer.
Striking NBA player Yeah, technically they're locked out and not on strike. Let's not split hairs. Just get a replica NBA jersey and write up a placard that says 'On Strike" or "Will Dunk for Food" and you're good to go.
Occupy Wall Street protester Dress up like one of the great unwashed: matted hair, flannel shirt and a sign that features the word "Occupy _____." A super-cheap costume for the 99 percent.
Juggalo Facepaint, black baggy t-shirt and shorts. Plus a bunch of magnets you don't understand.
Beavis and Butthead They're making a comeback on MTV so it'll be topical. All you need is a AC/DC or Metallica t-shirt and a dazed look in your eye.
Zombie: Why not be a homemade “Walking Dead” zombie? All you need to do is find some of your old, loose fitting light color clothes and stain them with tea. If you have some red food coloring laying around, you could always add random blood spots.
Human Egg: Wear all white. Attach (or paint) a yellow circle on your stomach. You are an egg.
The Blues Brothers: Dressing as “The Blues Brothers” is an easy costume. All you need is a white collared shirt, black suit, black sunglasses, and a fedora (You can buy one of these or someone in your family may have one). You can use a sharpie to draw in some super sideburns and bring a harmonica along if you have one.
