Party Dress


The Obamas

"You could go as Rat Pack–cool Obama: Wear a white button-down shirt, a skinny tie, black sixties horn-rimmed sunglasses, and a fedora. Then put on an Obama mask." —Pamela Moore

"Loincloth (white sheet); halo (one of those glow-stick things from raves and Dave Matthews concerts), sandals." —Joshua David Stein

"It's kind of hard to go as Obama, especially if you're not black. You always think, This is the year it's acceptable to go blackface—but no, no, it's not. Please, no coal on your body. Just get a mask. I also like the conceptual costumes. You could go as a secretly racist voter! I don't know how you'd do that, though." —Joel Stein
