What you’ll need:
- Brown or red tunic
- Beard (extra points for a real one, but fake will suffice)
- Stunned, open-mouth gaze
- Short brown wig
It was the restoration mocked ’round the world: an ancient fresco depicting Jesus transformed into a bizarre, cartoonish monkey-man. Elderly Spanish woman Cecilia Giménez took it upon herself to touch up the painting, which was, admittedly, in desperate need of repair. But what resulted was an entirely new work of art that instantly went viral, launching a Twitter contest and earning an extended segment on the Conan O’Brien show. So why not keep the meme alive this Halloween and go as the botched monkey-Jesus? Once you don your costume, the rest will come easy: just stand around with your mouth agape and your head tilted. Sure, this costume might be just a tad blasphemous, but hey, isn’t that what Halloween’s all about?
