There have been many words to describe Donald Trump. I call him a great Halloween Costume! Let’s face it — a Halloween costume’s success is generally based on how easily people know who you’re dressing up as, how confident you feel in it and if people chuckle and have fun with your costume. Based on this criteria, dressing up as Trump should be a no-brainer!

This Trump costume is super easy to make because you probably already have most of what you need in your closet. (Get all your friends in on the political figure costume train by dressing up as Hillary, Bill and Bernie!) All it takes is a suit, a wig and some orange face makeup. Oh, and maybe some practice frowning in front of a mirror :)

Halloween Donald Trump Costume 003

Jeff, our Senior Analyst, brought his own suit jacket, pants, white shirt, tie and dress shoes. The only thing I bought was a Rubie’s Costume The Billionaire Wig ($9) from Amazon. Easy peasy!


Beauty Editor Misty applied a layer of orange foundation all over Jeff’s face to really nail the Trump look down.

While getting ready, we accidentally splattered a little orange makeup on Jeff’s white shirt (eek!). It was all good — I just hopped over to a nearby Ross to quickly pick up another shirt. So, readers, remember to put on the white shirt *after* applying orange face makeup!

Jeff really got the Trump frown down.


Making America great again.


(Orange) tanned to perfection.


Just dancin’ with my best political pals — Bernie, Hillary and Bill!
