Looking for ideas on an extremely low-effort “costume” with a legal theme, preferably libertarian-oriented.
Like literally just an idea for a joke I can make as I carry around a book or a sheet of paper with something funny on it. Maybe a really cheap costume if I can get it by Friday.
See-through blindfold + Peplos or Chiton. Sword and scales if you can get them but they’re not strictly necessary.
Lady Justice seems a bit overdone…
To be clear, this is for a law student party
Replace blindfold with crown, sword with torch, get your Liberty on on a friday night.
Also, separately: You would not believe how unimportant “overdone” is unless you’re doing actual fashion.
It’s a high-society “costly signalling” meme we’ve adopted because we want to look cool but unless you’re actually high society it doesn’t matter because “I made a cool costume” already signals everything you want – skill, surplus energy etc./ in a way it wouldn’t in somebody rich enough to just buy a costume, where they also need to signal excess creativity and intelligence – or the ability to afford consultants who can have that for them.
There’s no way I’m actually going to make a costume…
If the sword, blindfold and chiton are all purchased separately rather than as a package deal, you’ll already have.
