2015 political costume ideas

 

The next presidential election is still over a year way, but with all of the pop culture coverage the candidates are receiving, doesn't it feel like you'll be casting your ballot tomorrow? Perhaps the added attention is due to the fact that this is a particularly colorful group of candidates. Among the contendors, we have: take-no-nonsense Hillary Clinton, campaigning to become the first Mrs. President, a multi-billionaire whose comb over is arguably as famous as his "it's gonna be huge" catchphrase, the longest serving independent in US history, a mysterious figure gaining steam in Iowa known as "Deez Nuts," and even award winning recording artist, producer, fashion designer, and speech-interupter Kanye West. (He has thrown his hat in the ring for 2020...)

Now that we understand each other, away we go: Burger King's limited edition "Halloween Whopper" has been making headlines lately, and not because of its spooky black bun.

The real challenge is finding a way to take something so abstract and make it a tangible outfit. Consider our suggestions on how to put together a Volkswagen Diesel Scandal costume, if you want to be the "Oh, I get it" Halloween 2015 partygoer that starts conversations.
