How to make a Michele Bachmann costume
Michele Bachmann has probably eclipsed Sarah Palin as the most attention-grabbing lady in politics. No mean feat, you can grab the attention of everyone in the room with your own Michele Bachmann costume. Here’s a quick tutorial on how to get “the look” — which doesn’t necessarily refer to the crazed look in Bachman’s eye, either. To dress up like the most attention-grabbing lady in politics wear a skirt suit, pearls, and a crazed look in your eye. American flag and corn dog optional.
## Things You’ll Need##
* Scissors to cut wig, if neccessary
* Black eyeliner pencil
* Red lipstick
* Pearl necklace and earrings
* Business suit
* OPTIONAL: Corn Dog
## Putting together your Michele Bachmann costume##
Step 1: Pick up a Long Brown Wig without bangs. You can cut the wig to your desired length for a longer, lustier Michele Bachman look or for a more “conservative” chin- or shoulder-grazing style.
Step 2: Apply some bronzer with a makeup sponge or blush brush. You’re going to want to be as heavy-handed as possible with that bronzer, giving yourself a faux glow that would make even Speaker of the House John Boehner orange with envy!
Step 3: Apply black eyeliner pencil to the inner and outer rims of your eyes. You’re probably going to want to be just as heavily-handed with the eyeliner as you were with the bronzer if you want to make those Bachmann baby blues pop. Practice making your eyes twirl in their sockets in front of the mirror for added effect.
Step 4: Carefully apply your lipstick in a deep shade of Republican Red. Ms. Bachmann may be a bit eyeliner and bronzer-happy, but the lady does know how to apply her lipstick. Remember to blot on a tissue, too!
Step 5: Put on a pearl necklace and a matching pair of earrings for a polished look.
Step 6: Get gussied up in your best business suit with a jacket and skirt, complete with a nice pair of pumps that would make you feel at home on the Congressional floor.
Step 7: Optionally, grab a corn dog (from your grocer’s freezer!) and prepare for an unflattering photo opportunity. Bonus points if you can find a Marcus Bachmann lookalike to take unflattering Corn Dog photos with you as part of a couple’s costume!
