Scandal fans know who Mellie Grant is, but for the uninitiated, she’s the First Lady of the United States…well, in a Shonda Rhimes TV drama. This season, Mellie is coping with the death of her son and is not acting like her usual put together self. She gets the nickname “Smelly Mellie” because she doesn’t shower anymore. She also walks around the White House in the same pjs, Uggs and robe everyday. And when she’s not eating cereal out of the box in the Oval Office, she has her hands in a bag of chips or on some greasy fried chicken. She’s got a lot of smells going on.

She may look like a dirty hot mess from the outside, but Smelly Mellie is more direct and unapologetic than ever. She speaks her mind and doesn’t care what people think of her appearance or actions. It’s pretty entertaining. Unfortunately, we saw the end of Smelly Mellie last week when she finally removed her Uggs and took a shower (so, may be for the best?). But if you’re looking to continue her legacy, click the slideshow to see everything you need for the Smelly Mellie Halloween costume.
