Top 10 Wall Street Halloween Costumes for 2012

If you are struggling for a Halloween costume this year, hopefully one of our Wall Street themed ideas will inspire you:

The 1 % – Wear a suit, attach some fake $100 bills and add lots of bling, buy a Lexus and laugh at middle-class people.

The 47%—Paper your body with Medicare bills, Welfare cheese receipts, Social Security Disability Payments and Section 8 Applications.  Accessorize with a Top Hat and Tails.

Occupy Wall Street – Don’t shower for the next five days, quit your day job and buy some rolling papers. Wear a sign around your neck that says, “I am lazy but entitled. I am going to blame other people for my problems. Can I borrow $20 til Friday?”

Greek Debt Crisis –Dress up as Greek Gods Zeus or Aphrodite with strategically placed Pita pockets. Stuff a money bag with Moussaka, write “debt” on it and attach it to your back.

The Merkel: Dress up as a scary, somewhat feminine German Chancellor and strap a banner across your chest that reads “PAYMENT DUE!!! SCHNELL!!!”

Rogue Trader – Wear a suit jacket, attach a ball and chain to your leg, handcuffs to your wrist, a prison number to your suit, carry around a bunch of trading tickets and wear a hat that says “I’m Your Prison B**** Tonight.”

Mark Zuckerberg –Wear a Harvard hoodie and hang a sign around your neck with a stock chart plummeting and pin little dislike  and “Friend Me?” signs all over the hoodie.  Then get married with a tough pre-nup the day before BEFORE your company goes public to protect your $19 billion fortune.

MF Global  – Dress up like Jon Corzine, pin the MF Global logo to your jacket and walk around with your right hand up as if you are testifying and your left hand behind your back with your fingers crossed.  Hang a sign around your neck with an arrow pointing to the right saying, “It was them.” Drive up and down a highway without seat belts.

India Flash Crash – Walk around with this look on your face all night. 

Libor – Walk around talking with a British accent and tell people you can get them a great rate on a mortgage loan and make clear that you don’t understand what you’re doing.

Have a Happy and Safe Halloween!
