I need a costume for this Saturday and then one for Thursday (preferably different). I procrastinated until today, when I went in to a tights store by my apartment. There was a sale so I bought 3 pairs I think I could construct a costume around, but I only have vague ideas. Throwing it to the hivemind for help! I am hoping to be funny/weird so that I have something to talk about when I meet people at a party. A little bit of a 'have to think about it, but then laugh' costume, or a witty reference of some sort. I swear I ordinarily have the capacity to be amusing on my own but down to the wire I'm nervous and can't come up with anything.
My thoughts for this are to pair with cowboy boots and be a space cowboy. But I don't really know what that is, I just remember it from a Lady Gaga song.
Could be paired with an american flag top I have to be a...? Something funny that I have no ideas for. Uncle Sam?
I have gold shoes and a gold lamé bandeau. I love me some gold lamé. But again, my problem is I can' think of any costume to go with all this gold. A gold bar? An emmy (but I don't have wings but I guess I could try to find some)?
There were also a few other options that I could return these and trade for, including a floral pair (maybe I could wear a floral top and be a garden? not sure how to make that funny though) and a blue metallic option.
