Best Janet Snakehole Halloween Costume Guide
Janet Snakehole is an alter ego of the April Ludgate character on Parks and Recreation. She is portrayed by actor Aubrey Plaza and appears in four episodes of this massively popular show. April uses the name of Janet Snakehole under different circumstances, so the personality does change while the name remains the same. For instance, she pretends Janet Snakehole is the daughter of a popular bar owner, but then later also develops the character into an aristocratic widow.
She may only appear infrequently during the show, but due to Aubrey Plaza’s popularity, she has become a crucial part of Parks and Recreation history. If you want to transform into Janet Snakehole just like April Ludgate does, you’ll need a Black Top, Black Skirt, Pillbox Hat with Veil, Black Heels, Pearl Necklace, Pearl Bracelet and Cigarette Holder.

About Janet Snakehole
Janet Snakehole is an alter-ego used by the April Ludgate character on NBC’s cult classic Parks and Recreation. Favorite actress Aubrey Plaza plays the role of Janet Snakehole. Her first appearance comes when April and friend Andy challenge each other to get as much free stuff as they can at a bar called the Snakehole Lounge. Donning a staff t-shirt, April claims to be Janet Snakehole, the bar owner’s daughter.
Later though, when the pair decides to roleplay at the Snakehole Lounge again, the persona of Janet has changed to a wealthy, posh widow who dramatically protests her innocence to Andy, who has transformed into Burt Macklin, an FBI agent. She keeps the charade going into the next morning, and also later adopts the persona to play Janet Snakehole again while creating a fake movie to grant Andy’s bucket list item of being an action movie star.
