No one looks good in skintight leopard print, I don’t care how much time you spend in the gym. Again, like the astronaut, that’s going to get sweaty pretty damn fast, only with the added bonus of every time you step outside, you’ll immediately be cold as all hell. It is fall after all. And if you decide to go deep into your character and speak in that obnoxious, shrill Ruby Rhod voice from The Fifth Element, it’s going to play hell on your vocal chords. With Halloween on a Friday this year, that may not be a huge issue, but if you intend to talk to anyone the next day, it’s something to consider.

This is, admittedly, a pretty cool costume idea. Timely, funny, and it’s based on someone dying in a TV show, so it’s not mean spirited like some other costumes we’ve seen going around and won’t make you look like an asshole. That said, it may be hard to pull off. We’re assuming that, if you’re not African American, you won’t go in blackface, because that would make you an asshole, but you will have to do something about your extra leg (assuming you have two). Eventually that will get uncomfortable, and unless you can come up with an optical illusion workaround, you’ll have to hobble around either on one leg or on crutches, and over the course of your night, that’ll start to get old. Not to mention the potential hazards if you decide to imbibe a few adult beverages.
