3 Last-Minute Nerd Halloween Costumes

Happy Halloween! If you are anything like me, you suck at coming up with costumes and suck even more at planning ahead. Have no fear here are a few simple costumes to check out.

1. Youngster Joey
-Everyone's favorite Rattata trainer is also pretty easy to imitate. Throw on some shorts, a t-shirt, and a backwards cap. No matter what you talk about, relate it back to how awesome your Rattata is. If in doubt, borrow lines from other youngsters like "Hi, I like shorts! They're comfy and easy to wear!" Nobody will like you be the end of the night, but damn are those shorts comfy.

2. Neil Gaiman
- You probably really like something he wrote, or something based on something he wrote. Thankfully he seems to wear very similar clothes all the time. Find a black wig, mess it up, put on some dark clothing and go around talking about how cool libraries are and the importance of creativity. A lot of people won't recognize you right away, but you will receive a lot of recognition from those Gaiman fans.

3. Mutant Hating Citizen form the Marvel Universe
- I am stealing this one from my friend Jack who donned this costume last Friday. Wear normal clothes, but carry around a protest sign saying something along the lines of "God Hates Muties!". You'll probably have more than a few people think you are a member of the Westboro Baptist Church, but once you start ranting about Magneto and the fall of our species they should catch on.
