Any old stoner can dress up like a nug of weed for Halloween. Even lamer? The idiots who party hop wearing nothing more creative than a T-shirt with a marijuana leaf stamped on it (and maybe a bad sketch of Bob Marley).
Think bigger this Oct. 31. The marijuana website Leafly profiled some creative DIY costumes that showcase not only your love of weed but your favorite strains. Here are a few of the ideas:
Agent Orange is a popular hybrid strain, but its sativa genes usually wins out. The high is uplifting, energetic, and creative, with mostly heady effects, while the bud smells of oranges and other citrus fruit.
The costume, naturally, is orange. Bright orange. All orange. All you need to do is find a two-piece orange suit and orange tie. Your shirt needn’t be orange, but it helps. On second thought, these things aren’t terribly easy to find. But you’re industrious and the Internet is always open. Give it a shot!
Super Lemon Haze
While not so great for patients who suffer from chronic anxiety, Super Lemon Haze and the high-octane energy boost it provides are great for getting errands done, socializing, or just going for a long, clear-headed walk in the middle of the day.
Make the costume with the following supplies: an orange fitted bodysuit, a cape made from 1-1.5 yards of yellow fabric, and scraps of yellow, orange, and green felt (representing the lemon/citrus aroma and deep-green nugs of Super Lemon Haze).
Affix the cape to the jumpsuit, cut the letters “S,” “L,” and “H” out of each of the felt scraps, and attach them to the front of the bodysuit. Finally, stick a couple green felt marijuana leaves somewhere prominent so nobody gets the wrong idea.
This all-white DIY costume, geared (mostly) toward women is a bit harder to make, but it’s sure to be a hit. Everyone who has smoked more than half a dozen joints has heard of White Widow, an even hybrid with potent euphoric effects, so they’ll get the gag as soon as they see you light up on the patio during a break from the Halloween party.
Here’s what you do: Take a plain white dress, white fishnet stockings, and white shoes. Make six fake legs out of white cylindrical foam (found at crafts stores) and attach them to the back of the dress. That makes eight total, including your real legs, and as we all remember from high school biology, spiders have eight legs.
White gloves are optional.
There’s a simple way to tackle a costume based on this favorite indica-dominant hybrid: Take a road trip to Wisconsin and buy a Packers/Badgers cheese hat. But what self-respecting pothead would ever choose the easy way out of anything? Uh . . .
So here’s a better, if still pretty simple approach. Buy a full-torso cheese costume online, add some tight black pants, a long-sleeved black shirt, black shoes, and black socks. The combination leaves you looking like, well, a giant slice of cheese. Perfect for a hungry stoner on Halloween.
