Gotcha, didn't I? Now that's some scary shit!
... which brings me to today's costume idea: An Ex-Gay, or if you really want a challenge: the Ex Ex-Gay.
Now, some of you may be familiar with the down and dirty tactics of Christian (and I use that word lightly) ministries like Exodus International who purport to help the fragile gays and lesbians overcome their homosexual ways.
Exodus International proves too easy a target – which is why we shall make it a Halloween costume! Here goes
What you'll need:
A lesbian friend (if you are a queer male)
or a gay friend (if you are a queer female)
Really, the beauty of this Halloween costume is that it's innocuous, wear what you want (as long as it's not this) and the more visibly gay or lesbian you sound or act in mannerism, the better!
Just imagine the scene, introducing your new heterosexual partner within a Halloween party setting:
"This is Carol! We're very happy! We just looked at paint samples for our new Victorian fixer-upper! We're sooo happy! Barack Obama is the worst thing that could happen to America! We're incredibly and undeniably happy!"
Then for dramatic effect, you can burst into tears and run out of the room.
Oh. The Ex Ex-Gay costume is similar to the Ex-Gay, just, you know, flip the gender of the person you're with and have a little more fun.
