New Years Party Costume Ideas?
December 31, 2009 12:05 PM   Subscribe

I'm going to a New Year's party. The theme is the 00 decade, and I can dress as any event/ figure from this decade. Ideas for something clever/ fun/ cute? I'm a short blonde girl, if it helps. Thanks!

Outside the box:
007 or Bond Girl
Anything with two consecutive 0's: book, cook, tool, wool, etc.

I think you should walk around as a giant Diet Coke bottle, and occasionally put Mentos in your mouth and then spit all over everyone.

I've always wanted a chance to dress as Lady Gaga, but YMMV.

It's a bit of a Halloween recycle but aluminum foil Balloon Boy headgear might do it.

A Wii? Or bring a Wiimote/Rock Hero guitar (be a Wii player)?

Angela Merkel with GWB molesting her from behind? (Not sure how'd you do that, but I love the idea.)

It was a problem child of a decade ... Dress like a bad kid, act horribly, dis everyone, spit, cuss... break things, insult the host. Make everyone glad when you leave.

Short and blond with VERY little time to prepare? Hillary Clinton in a pantsuit. Bonus if you have a campaign button

Dress as Kate Gosselin. Bonus points if you can buy six baby dolls and attach them to yourself somehow. Super bonus points if you can recruit someone to be Jon and strangle him periodically.

Go as an iPod. That little fucker changed everything, early in the decade. Plus it should be simple enough -- a white box, a big circle on one site and an Apple on the other.
