Can I get a fist pump? Drunken beach bimbo Nicole Polizzi (AKA Snooki) has now surpassed Lady Gaga as the most requested Halloween costume for young women. Fortunately the Snooki look is relatively inexpensive to replicate.
The basic foundation for a Snooki costume consists of spray tan (preferably a fake orangey shade) and a bump it (the plastic implement used to create her distinctive pouf hairdo.) The remainder of the ensemble can be improvised.
You will need at least 2 layers of face makeup and be sure to glob on eyeliner and mascara.
For the outfit think ******. Look for something black or an animal print with an overly short skirt and plunging v-neck top. Don’t forget the Wonder Bra.
This one is for guys only. Cut out a paper “E” and tape it to your shirt; you’re going as an “E-Male!”

Dress in all pink and carry a feather around with you. All of a sudden, you’re “tickled pink!”
