A Very Pop Culture Halloween
Double, double toil and trouble

Sometimes you think of an amazing costume but by the time you buy the vest, pants and raccoon ears, you’re Rocket costume has cost you more than you want to pay for something you’re probably never going to wear again. I have some easy(ish) pop culture costumes using stuff you may already have in your closet.

What you have- neutral colored clothes, maybe a corduroy jacket. What you’ll need- not to shower for a week. Better to even go roll around in the woods for a while. If you’re going for a post-jugular bite Rick, you’ll need lots of blood. Preferably fake.
