    I’m a black guy, and I’m trying to find a funny costume that would be funny at a college party. I’m 20 and I’m 6’3, any dope ideas?
    • Costume Guy replied:
      You can check out our punny costumes for some inspiration. ? Or like I mentioned earlier, since it'll be a college party, you can do one of Kanye's recent hilarious outfits, like the LaCroix water bottle costume, or his outfit with Little Pump from the music video.
  • Someone asked:
    19 M I'm 6'1 and Hispanic (darker skin). Friday's party is at our frat house and Saturday is at a club. The past two years I was Bobby Shmurda (prison jumpsuit) and Captain Crunch (with a play on "d**k in a box"). What should I be?
    • Costume Guy replied:
      Looks like you're into some interesting costumes lol If you wanna do music again, you can try to do something like Kanye's SNL outfit with the LaCroix. You would have to make it yourself. Or you can do his oversize outfit from the "I love It" music video. Look up a tutorial on Youtube on how to do it. A lot of people have made these videos showing a step by step guide.
