Last week, when Mitt Romney accidentally made the many-memed snafu “Binders Full Of Women“, I spent 5 seconds being extremely offended–and the next 5 minutes eagerly texting my friends that we’d found this year’s Halloween costume. Dressing up as Romney’s “Binders Full Of Women” is easy, (as long as you’re a woman, or dressed like one). The only thing you’ll need to buy that you don’t already have is, well, some binders–or feel free to get creative with Trapper Keepers if you can find them–along with some Republican memorabilia.
The costume itself is simple–dress up as a professional woman (a suit or a pencil skirt is perfect). We went with the classic black pencil skirt, blazer, and pumps. Then, pick up a couple of three ring binders at Staples. Use tape to affix the binders, corset-style, around your waist. Decorate with Romney stickers, pictures, and campaign slogans–feel free to go as overboard as possible.
For a chick wearing a binder belt, may we just say–you look great.
