by Marcos Mora

These three costumes are easy to create and budget friendly, and they’re guaranteed to get your friends talking. Tusk tip: Don’t appropriate social justice movements or cultural groups you don’t belong to.

This footballer didn’t mean to start an internet challenge during the World Cup, but now he’s a meme

  1. Find a yellow t-shirt. Preferably a Brazil soccer jersey, but anything will work.
  2. If you are using a yellow t-shirt, grab a green paint pen at Michael’s and write NEYMAR and 10 on the back.
  3. Wear blue shorts.
  4. Grab a pair of white socks and pull them up to your knees.
  5. Soccer cleats will complete your look.
  6. Drop to the floor and cry like a baby!

Colin Kaepernick

After kneeling during the Star Spangled Banner, the 49ers quarterback launched a political movement

  1. Get your hands on red jersey with gold bottoms. Ask a friend who played in high school. A thrifted red t-shirt and shoulder pads could also work.
  2. If you’re 2018 Kaep you need an afro. Bonus points if you have one already. You can find a wig at any costume store.
  3. Grab a white paint pen and write KAEPERNICK and 7 in all caps on the top of the jersey. You can get paint pens at Michael’s.
  4. Kneel anywhere you go. Better yet: Bring some Nike kicks to promote.

There’s nothing more contemporary than dressing up like a rapper with a track record

  1. Braid your hair into as many braids as you can.
  2. Use temporary color to spray every braid with a different color. Or wear a rainbow wig.
  3. Use markers to draw tattoos on your face and your arms.
  4. Put on bright colored/neon clothes and a pair of sneakers.
  5. Cover your teeth with Chiclets gum.
  6. Snap a selfie with the first Nikki Minaj you spot at the party.
