Costume help!!!

My DH and I have a grown-ups only Halloween party to go to on the 22nd. This guy makes a huge deal out of it. (here's the website: http://mattsparty.com/)

The theme this year is Holiday humiliation. So basically we are supposed to dress as something for a little known holiday or to dress as the most humiliating thing you can think of.

I need help!!!

Can any of you think of a little known holiday I can turn into a costume for DH and I????

I can't think of anything without somehow making fun of a holiday (and since most holidays are religious, that might be bad).

Let me think about it and get back to you.

OhoHoH I have an idea!!!

Remember the 'Christmas Sweater?" Ok, maybe Grandma still sports one... but really...

A nice knitted sweater, complete with trees, tinsel and a little bell? Shoulder pads are a MUST! Combined with a nice pair of "Mom" jeans, ruffled socks, and bangs sprayed up to the stars you could have a contest ribbon in your hands!!

Dh would need the same sweater (sans shoulder pads) and some acid wash jeans and high tops. Mullet wig, if he is not willing to cut Wink

OK, thats not really "little know" but still funny.

I might do that for Halloween LOL.

Oh, I like that! I think we could probably find a cheezy sweater at like Kohl's or something that could work. I might have to add to it but I can manage that. This Christmas sweater thing is a total contender!

You may want to search at some thrift or Goodwill stores. This time of year some pull holiday clothing into one area.

My thought was similar. Something like a painful childhood memory of mom / dad in 80's attire complete with the holiday legwarmers, mullet for dad... but loving the Christmas sweater plan. Sounds like fun! Although....... you DO know we expect to see pics!!!

Good luck!

Yes I like these ideas. But I've come across one that I think I will not even need to spend money on to make work - backward day! As long as I can find something that is clearly on backwards this may work. Not sure about the shoes though - that could be tough.

Need more research.

And pics? Hmmmmm, I'm a bit camera shy but I might be able to accomodate.

Backwards Day is a fun (and easy!) idea. For the shoes, what if instead you put socks on *over* the shoes (i.e. "backwards" of how they should go on *first* then the shoes?)

Good luck!

Oh I like the socks over the shoes.

The other obscure holiday I found was "cut a paper snowflake day". I thought we could just wear black, cut a bunch of paper snowflakes and pin them to our clothes.

What dya think??

I have never heard of that one and I'm assuming others haven't either - sounds perfect!

All great ideas! Not sure which you're going with, but if you ever need an ugly Christmas sweater search on eBay under "Ugly Christmas Sweater" and you'll find a ton!
