Still stumped for Halloween costume ideas? Dress as a local.

Sure, you’ll see a lot of Iron Men and Dark Knights this Halloween—but will anyone attempt to pull off a Trump? Since everything is better when it’s local, we came up with the props you’ll need to dress up as your favorite Westchester resident and be the hit of your next Halloween party.

Jeanine Pirro
✔ Judge’s robe
✔ Gavel
✔ Spike heels
✔ Tissue tucked into the neck of the robe (to protect it from the TV makeup)
Go the extra mile: Find a pot-bellied pig to walk around on a leash all night.
Play the part: Make sure you get into every photo taken at your party. Double points if you can elbow your way into the center of the frame, and then make like it was your idea to take the picture in the first place.

Donald Trump
✔ Dark suit
✔ Golf club
✔ Combover (your own, or try to find a wig from a Ken Doll costume)
✔ Bottle of Trump Ice
Go the extra mile: Try to keep your lips in that pouty sneer all night. Practice in the mirror by mouthing the word “prune.”
Play the part: Brag that your costume is the best idea and the finest execution in the history of Halloween costumes.

Martha Stewart
✔ Handmade poncho
✔ Police ankle monitoring bracelet
✔ Yankee Candle’s “home-baked cookies” scented candle
Go the extra mile: Whip up a batch of seasonal butternut-squash soup with homemade croutons, served in individual portions in mini-pumpkins, to bring to the party.
Play the part: End every sentence with “it’s a good thing.”

Hillary Clinton
✔ Pantsuit
✔ Big choker necklace
✔ Signs that say “Hillary 2008 2012” and “Hillary for Vice President”
Go the extra mile: Find someone to be your Bill (sunglasses, saxophone, tracksuit, willing to say uncomfortable things and make the party really awkward).
Play the part: Whenever attention shifts away from you, complain about bias. // Marisa LaScala
