Looking for costume ideas with a Wellesley flair and disappointed that there’s already been a run on Wellesley “masseuse” and “masseuse advisor” costumes? Here are a few other ideas to make you the hit of any local Halloween party:
* Parking space costumes
The idea: This is a sure winner for Wellesley High students looking to attract fellow students whose parking spaces are being aced out by the new school construction.
How to do it: Wear all black/dark gray, but use reflective yellow tape along the sides of your body. Use fabric or cardboard to create a universal blue/white parking P on the shirt along with the words: Student parking only.
The other idea: Dress like a Wellesley High School student by wearing a No Parking T-shirt.
* Lost/stolen “Woman and Child” painting
The idea: Recreate the infamous lost/stolen Leger painting that Wellesley College’s Davis Museum has been trying to track down.
How to do it: Blow up a copy of the painting and paste it to a big piece of cardboard. Wrap the bottom of the cardboard in a big black garbage bag to depict the art being tossed in the trash. Voila, this costume is work of art.
* Anonymous Donor
The idea: Pay homage to the mysterious benefactor behind this past summer’s free Beach Boys concert in Wellesley.
How to do it: A pair of shades and shiny $ pendant should do the trick.
* Save 1938 Wellesley High cheerleaders
The idea: Still holding out hope that the original 1938 Wellesley High School building might be saved? Dress the part of old school cheerleader.
How to do it: Grab a guy or gal cheerleader’s outfit and megaphone, then adorn them with “WHS 1938”, and you’re all set.
