Halloween will be here before you know it, and chances are you haven't found your costume yet. You'll probably do what you do every year, and wait until the last minute, then - if you're a guy, you'll go as a "pimp," and if you're a girl you'll go as a "sexy ______."

Avoid being uber lame this Halloween, and take advantage of one of the biggest phenomenons of 2012. Yes, what I'm telling you to do is to dress up as K-pop-star Psy and go 'Gangnam Style!'

Ordering from the website in the video below makes it easy, but if you are thrifty like we are, then follow the instructions below, and you will be doing the imaginary horse 'Gangnam Style' dance all over the dirty south for hella cheap!

Materials needed:

  • Black Tape
  • Jacket (light blue/green/yellow)
  • Pants (black)
  • Shirt (white)
  • Black Bow Tie
  • Sunglasses


You'll be able to find a cheap (and tacky) light colored jacket at Goodwill, Salvation Army or just about any other thrift store. Once you do, use your black tape to create the "tuxedo trim" look as seen in this video.

Once you nail down your jacket, just snag a white button up shirt and a pair of black slacks (which can also be found at just about any thrift store.) Locate a cheap pair of of black sunglasses, like these.

Lastly, find a black bow tie and obnoxiously slick your hair back or to the side. If you really want to go next level, then find a pair of wing tips (or convert a dusty pair of black dress shoes into snazzy wing tips by using white tape). If you don't have hair to work with, find a cheap wig that comes as close to Psy's gnarly hairdo as possible.

Yeah, you may think 'Gangnam Style' is aggravating, but it's extremely relevant - and better than your wack "sexy cat" or "football player" costume idea.

And if all else fails, there is always this.
