I recently wrote The Best Possible Halloween 2016 Costume... is DEFINITELY LaCroix. And I stand by that 100%. After all, if anything mattered in 2016, it was LaCroix.
But today, it became clear to me that the SECOND best costume is the real winner of this year's second presidential debate, Ken Bone.
First of all, Ken Bone is pretty much the most hugable person I've ever seen.
Second, he cares about environmentally-friendly energy policies and jobs for (former) energy plant workers.
Third, it's easy -- and plenty warm!
To be Ken Bone, you will need:
1. Red Ribbed / Cable Knit Sweater (v-neck).
Check a local Saver's or Goodwill, or order one online. Here are some I liked for men:
IZOD Men's Cable Solid 1/4 Zip Sweater, was $70.00, now $42.99:
Alfani Men's Kit Pullover, was $60.00, now $13.97.
H2H Men's Casual Slim Fit Pullover, was $46.50, now $32.50:
Here are some I liked for women:
U.S. Polo Assn. Cable Knit Pullover, was $42.00, now $15.99:
Jessica London Women's V-Neck Sweater In Ribbed Cotton, was $44.99, now $26.99:
2. White Button-Down
You probably already have one. If not, you can order one now for about $10 -- here are Amazon results for men's and women's white button-downs.
3. Rectangular-frame glasses.
Again, you might already have these. If not, Amazon's got a bunch in the $2-10 range:
4. Khaki pants.
If you don't already have some, you can find some at Goodwill, Saver's, or any shopping mall. Or check Amazon Fashion -- they have many affordable pairs for both men and women:
5. Disposable camera.
Guys -- this is the most important part of your whole costume, as Ken Bone used his disposable camera to take photos during and after the event. FujiFilm will thank you for taking these off their hands -- plus, don't you think it would be fun to take pictures the old-fashioned way?
Of course, this costume can be easily modified to be
Sexy Ken Bone
All you need is:
Red Sweater or bolero shrug with plunging v-neck and white button-down (tied or cut to show your belly, obvs):
The glasses and disposable camera stay the same -- though maybe you could throw in some leg wraps, fishnets, or stripper heels for added over-the-topness.
