You’ll Have The Most “Well-Read” Costume
Sometimes a good Halloween get-up do not take the same level of effort as painting faces or egregious alterations to your outfit. If you want to tell people who (or what) you are supposed to be in little time and without saying a word, all you need is an iron, an old shirt, and some letters, like these Sport Iron on Flock Letters from SEI.
For a price that is to die for, these “3/4 letters can help you establish a new identity or serve as a clever reference in no time at all by embroidering any soft surface with your words of choice with by easy iron-on application. Add a series of random numbers to an orange shirt and – BAM! You’re an inmate. Or, to be more specific, place the numbers “237” on your chest and say you’re the door to the haunted room in The Shining. In fact, you could go as far as ironing on a name other than your own and just call yourself that. It counts.
Not to mention, outfits such as this tend to win the Best Pun category at the office costume contest. Iron on the words “GO CEILING!” and call yourself a ceiling fan. Or grab a friend or your significant other and decide who wants to be “Neftlix” and who wants to be “Chill.”
The letters even come in three extra colors other than black (red, blue, white) to better match with your shirt of choice. It is the perfect way to make a costume that is perfect for laughs, perfect for couples, and is cheap and quick and easy to put together.
We believe that we have saved what is easily the best, most fun, and amazingly simple costume idea for last. All you need to do is pick up this 12×18 picture frame from Snap. The next step is to hold it in front of your face. What do you get? A self-portrait!
