What you’ll need:
- Blue t-shirt
- Black eyeliner (and no other makeup)
- A wide-eyed stare
- An immeasurable, borderline unhealthy obsession with Justin Bieber
Bring the Internet to life when you show up at your Halloween party as the Overly Attached Girlfriend, the meme that just keeps giving. The increasingly proliferated meme was spun from the elusive golden yarn that fused together the hilarity of the Internet, Justin Bieber and a teenage-girl superfan. Overly Attached Girlfriend doesn’t take herself too seriously, making it the ideal costume to let loose on Halloween while still maintaining an attitude of craziness. And isn’t that the reason for the holiday, after all?
OAG sprang from a video that was submitted in response to an online contest to help promote Bieber’s perfume “Girlfriend.” It’s something in the girl’s eager face, unblinking stare and soupcon of obsessiveness caught our collective attention — and we just couldn’t look away. Now that chipper, charming and slightly alarming face can be seen across the web with captions of varying degrees of sanity. Some personal favorites include “Hey I just met you and this is crazy, I have your number, I want your babies” and “You ate at Wendy’s? Who the f— is Wendy?”
The outfit is the easy part of the costume — black eyeliner and a blue t-shirt are probably in your bedroom right now. However it may take time to perfect the wide-eyed gaze of an innocent teenage girl in love who will never take no for an answer and cheerfully lives with an undercurrent of rage, narcissism, and insanity ever roiling just under the surface.
