Steven Slater

What you'll need:
• Superman T-shirt
• Beer cans
• Bandage

Disgruntled JetBlue flight attendant Steven Slater became a working-class hero in August after a bad day on the job led to the kiss-off applauded around the world. After allegedly sustaining a head injury during an altercation with a passenger, Slater launched into a vulgar tirade over the plane's intercom, grabbed a few beers from the beverage cart and then activated the emergency slide to make his unbelievable escape. Internet fame inevitably followed, giving Slater's freak-out October relevance. For your angry-attendant costume, try traditional black pants and a Superman T-shirt worn under a flight-attendant-style button-up shirt. Though your hero tee will grab a laugh or two, it's the accessories that will make your Slater impersonation worthy of the legend. Grab two beer cans (being mindful of local open-container laws), bandage your head and tie a superhero cape around your neck. Presto!
