F*ck Ups: American Apparel Halloween Costumes
I know I’ve been bitching about unoriginal Halloween costumes a lot, but ’tis the season to be judgmental. Before I go completely haywire, let me say that I have a soft spot for Dov Charney’s ridiculous metallic leggings and ultra comfortable dresses. What can I say, I’ve fallen into the trap. But I certainly don’t wear both together; it’s too much.
If you buy all of the pieces for your Halloween costume at one store, it probably sucks. Unless you go as my previous suggestion, garbage, all the components of a well thought out, creative costume wouldn’t be found in one place. Frankly, I don’t know if the peeps over at American Apparel are making a sick joke on their Web site, but I am positive most of the costumes look gross and overpriced. Who wants to drop $80 on a white tee and jeans that is only getting splattered with paint? And would you really buy a nude unitard for $32 and draw pubes all over it? Didn’t think so. If your costume requires a piece from this colorful outpost, by all means, go for it! But if buying an entire costume there is all you can come up with, you need to exercise your right brain.
