Lazy, low-cost Halloween costume idea: Jimmy McNulty from The Wire.
You have a few options with this one. You can be dressy, professional McNulty (pictured) or casual McNulty, wearing jeans and a button-down shirt. Either way, make sure you’re drunk, and make sure you bring the self-hatred at any event you attend on Halloween. For added realism, try to find a Baltimore PD badge. Nobody will know who the hell you are, but we’re going for “cheap”, here, not “good”.
