It’s now Halloween afternoon, this year everything falls on a Friday night; people are going to party on actual Halloween this year and YOU DON’T HAVE A COSTUME YET!!!! Don’t worry my slacker friends, I will once again give you my annual (annual meaning when I remember to do this) last minute Halloween costume suggestions.
Like last year, Halloween falls on a weekday, so what that means to us working guys and girls is that most of the shenagins will happen this weekend. If you don’t know what you want to be this year yet; fear not! Here’s a few tips that will help you out. You can also check out last year’s suggestions if none of these really sell you.
Hey 80s/90s kids! Think of when you were growing up and the cartoon “The Real Ghostbusters” was all the rage. Are you following me so far? Good! Now, think of the action figures, think of the proton pack and the rich kid that had both the Proton pack AND the ghost trap. Don’t think about how you’d like to time travel to dick punch them for being smug, but DO think of all the nostalgia. After playing Ghostbusters, or when it was lunch time do you remember the ultimate drink you HAD to have? If you guessed Ecto Cooler, you win bragging rights…if you said something else; you’re a freak and I assume you have no soul, because there is no other right answer.
Now, time travel to the present. Beer may have replaced Ecto Cooler as your favorite drink, but if you decide to be nostalgic about it, I got bad news for you: Ecto Cooler has been discontinued since 2007 (Slimer himself left in 1997…a full six years after the cartoon was cancelled!) While it may live on with awesome memories, some people really, really miss the hell out of it! Some have launched full scale investigations! However, one group of rabid Ghostbuster fans made what they claim is the perfect clone of the beloved Ecto Cooler.
As part of PopCultureAsylum’s countdown to Halloween (and a motivating tool for me to update this site more frequently), I’ve decided to try to mimic this clone recipe. Here’s how it turned out:
So it’s Friday, Halloween falls on a Monday, so with the weekend parties, you have even LESS time now to plan out what to wear this year! But the problem is you are not creative; but your friends keep urging you to dress up for a change, and you don’t want to spend a lot of money.
Worry not, I am here to help you pick out a costume! (I’m generous like that!)Here’s 5 very last minute but good costumes.
