What you’ll need:
- Classic Suit
- Blue striped tie
- Short gray wig (the more disheveled, the better)
- Wooden chair
- Invisible Obama (sold separately)
The excitement over the 82-year-old Eastwood’s speech at the 2012 Republican National Convention quickly turned to confusion, as the renowned actor directed his many grievances to an empty chair in which he pretended President Obama was sitting. In his much-mocked conversation with the chair, Eastwood discussed his disappointment with the Obama Administration and responded to imaginary retorts from the not-actually-present President. A suit and wooden chair are the obvious choices to pull off this election year look, but you get extra points for rambling disjointedly and taking extended pauses during your own incoherent jokes. Whether you took it as a clever performance or a sign of dementia, an RNC Eastwood costume is undoubtedly one of the simplest and most topical options for Halloween revelry this year. Go ahead, you’ll make someone’s day.
