Why be a run-of-the-mill sexy stewardess, cop, racecar driver for Halloween when you could be a bodacious bodega? Okay so I didn’t come up with this idea myself – I have to give credit where credit is due to mad genius Lisa Mayock who I saw wearing it first – but I thought it was such an original costume that I had to make my own version. I’m not sure what she used for hers, but for mine, I started by recycling a pizza box (nice excuse to treat yoself, as Aziz would say) and adorning it with your standard bodega accouterments – lotto signs, Metrocard signs, ATM signs (a lot of signs, really). Just a little warning though that this costume is a bit perilous if you have little to no self control when it comes to junkfood. I’m typing this with orange fingers right now…

I’m going to post a complete DIY on how to make this bodega costume from scratch on Inhabitat tomorrow so check for it there. I also saved all of the sign graphics I used as jpegs so if you want to be a bodega for Halloween but want to save yourself the trouble of hunting down all of the graphics, email hello[at]clossette.com and I’ll send them right to ya!
