The Office

Get the look: The Office is pretty easy to accomplish as long as you've got the hair. Wear work attire and a name tag. Make sure you get Dwight's glasses right, that's crucial.

RIP Vine

Get the look: a simple green shirt with the Vine logo painted on. The knife headband is available at most costume stores. What makes this costume is the detailed makeup job.

Get political

Dress as something you love

Or rock your favorite booze

Get the look: Once again an oversized shirt is a canvas. Paint the name or decal of your favorite food or beverage on a shirt and compliment with the same color of makeup.

Whatever you choose, you're slacking if you don't post a pic to Instagram. Show the world your brain child.
