    Nerd Looks for Halloween

    Post  sallychung on Wed Oct 07, 2009 5:05 am

    The tradition of Halloween never ceases and the time has come again to parade around in costumes picking up sweets. Whether it is carving in a local pumpkin patch, running through Knott’s Scary Farm, or getting spooked by a horror movie, the same desire for the most outlandish costume crosses all of our minds. Now, the current fad is the nerd look. Yes, the nerdy glasses and plaid tucked-in shirts have already been spotted around campus last Halloween, but, the nerd costume hasn’t, however, gone out of style. With ordinary everyday clothes and some creative juices, it’s amazing what the outcome will be. Get inspired with these creative ways to reinvent the nerd look.

    School Nerd: What better way to pay homage to Steve Urkel from Family Matters than to master his look for Halloween. Find any collared shirt and tuck it into a pair of pegged jeans. If it’s chilly out, put on a tight cardigan. To add your own personal twist, wear colorful socks that express your personality. For the finishing touches, throw on bright-colored suspenders, a pair of oversized reading glasses, and adjust your backpack to a minimum fit. However, Urkel’s crazy wardrobe is only a part of his character. Observe his spontaneous charisma such as the gangly way in which he walks to the enthusiasm in his nasally voice. These should all be mimicked to enhance the look.

    Science nerd: The idea of a science nerd is the majority of AHS students excelling in AP science courses so how can you be the one science nerd to stand out this Halloween? One guy comes to mind whose vast knowledge of all things science is tantamount to his impressive apparel: Bill Nye the Science Guy. Bill Nye has a sophistication that you can obtain by donning a light blue lab coat over a white buttoned-down shirt. Hang bulky lab goggles around your neck, wear gloves, and clip on any patterned bow tie to make your costume comical.

    Business nerd: If you have a serious but sarcastic sense of humor, the business nerd is just right for you. You might idolize Dwight Schrute from The Office and Napoleon Dynamite so here’s how to recreate their look. Ask your father or brother for a suit preferably in basic colors (brown if you’re emulating Napoleon’s look). Wear a pair of fake glasses with thick lenses. No matter how crazed a fan you are, looking like Dwight, as charming as he is, is not worth damaging your eye sight. Napoleon would also wear a “Vote for Pedro” shirt underneath, but a dress shirt would suffice. Girls have the option of wearing a knee length skirt with knee high socks.

    Basketball Nerd: Try the basketball nerd this year for a more daring and outrageous look. Go against the norm of a typical jersey and basketball shorts, and try a tank top tucked into tight short shorts instead to give your costume more nerd appeal. Accessorize with multiple neon sweatbands and a pair of bright tube socks. If you’re finding this costume hard to picture, refer to Jackie Moon of Semi-Pro. Of course, the afro isn’t necessary to achieve this look, but it would be a fun supplement.

    The tradition of Halloween never ceases (Try rewording to “never ends”) and the time has come again to parade around in costumes (insert comma) picking up (reword, picking up sounds like taking it off the floor :O] sweets. Whether it is carving in a local pumpkin patch, running through Knott’s Scary Farm, or getting spooked by a horror movie, the same desire for the most outlandish costume crosses all of our minds. Now, the current fad is the nerd look. (its kind of weird to say ‘now’ and then use the word ‘current’ considering that you just said ‘now’) Yes, the nerdy glasses and plaid tucked-in shirts have already been spotted around campus last Halloween, but, (delete comma) the nerd costume hasn’t, however, (delete “however” or switch it with “but”) gone out of style. With ordinary (comma) everyday clothes and some creative juices (“creative juices” is kind of hard to understand without using the word “flowing”) ,it’s amazing what the outcome will (change “will” to “can”) be. Get inspired with these creative ways to reinvent the nerd look. (you might want to move this sentence to before you listed the creative ways because the second to last sentence would make a good ending sentence)
    School Nerd: What better way (awk. either change to: what better way can you pay homage… or change to what is a better way…) to pay homage to Steve Urkel from Family Matters (italics) than to master his look for Halloween. (question mark) Find any (change “any” to “a”) collared shirt and tuck it into a pair of pegged jeans. If it’s chilly out (change to: if the weather is chilly… or if it’s chilly outside), put on a tight cardigan. To add your own personal twist, wear colorful socks that express your personality. (it wouldn’t be personal if you tell them what to wear… unless that’s some Steve Urkel style or something O_O sorry, I don’t watch that show Dx ) For the finishing touches, throw on bright-colored suspenders, a pair of oversized reading glasses, and adjust your backpack to a minimum fit. However, Urkel’s crazy wardrobe is only a part of his character. Observe his spontaneous charisma such as the gangly way in which he walks to the enthusiasm in his nasally voice. These should all be mimicked to enhance the (restate the look) look.

    Science nerd: The idea of a science nerd is the majority of AHS students excelling in AP science courses so how can you be the one science nerd to stand out this Halloween? (im not sure if the beginning of the sentence makes sense O_O)One guy (change “one guy” sounds really weird. Change to: a certain male… or something) comes to mind (add parenthesis) whose vast knowledge of all things science is tantamount to his impressive apparel (end parenthesis) :Bill Nye the Science Guy. Bill Nye (kill the bill LOL that rhymes… just put: Nye) has a sophistication that you can obtain by donning a light blue (I thought it was blinding white) lab coat over a white buttoned-down shirt. Hang bulky lab goggles around your neck, wear gloves, and clip on any patterned bow tie to make your costume comical. (awk. Reword sentence)

    Business nerd: If you have a serious but sarcastic sense of humor (a serious sense of humor?), the business nerd (sounds like your selling a nerd. Reword.) is just (delete “just”) right (consider changing “right” to “perfect” so it doesn’t sound like a commercial) for you. You might idolize Dwight Schrute from The Office (italics) and Napoleon Dynamite (italics) so here’s how to recreate their look. Ask your father or brother for a suit (parenthesis)preferably in basic colors (address who’s look, in this case: Schrute) (delete parenthesis next to brown and add comma) (brown if you’re emulating Napoleon’s look) (end parenthesis). (delete period and add “and”) Wear a pair of fake glasses with thick lenses. No matter how crazed (add: of) a fan you are, looking like Dwight, as charming as he is, (delete commas and add parenthesis) is not worth damaging your eye sight (eyesight is one word).Napoleon would also wear a “Vote for Pedro” shirt underneath, but a dress shirt would suffice. Girls have the option of wearing a knee length skirt with knee high socks. (then wouldn’t it look like they’re wearing a skirt and pantyhose? LOL. Unless that’s what your going for.)
    Basketball Nerd: (first of all, I don’t understand how there can be such thing as a basketball nerd considering the fact that basketball is a highly accepted, extremely not nerdy sport) Try the (change “the” to “being a”) basketball nerd this year for a more daring and outrageous look (how is it daring and outrageous. Explain Very Happy). Go against the norm of a typical jersey and basketball shorts, and try a tank top tucked into tight short shorts instead to give your costume more nerd appeal. (Change to: to give your costume more nerd appeal Go against the norm of a typical jersey and basketball shorts, and try a tank top tucked into tight short shorts instead) Accessorize with multiple neon sweatbands and a pair of bright tube socks. If you’re finding this costume hard to picture, refer to Jackie Moon of Semi-Pro (since I don’t know what semi-pro is, you either have to italicize, underline, or put it in quotations … depending on what it is). Of course, the afro isn’t necessary to achieve this look, but it would be a fun supplement. lol!

    The tradition of Halloween never stops and the time has come again to parade around in costumes, indulging in sweet treats. Whether we are carving in a local pumpkin patch, running through Knott’s Scary Farm, or getting spooked by a horror movie, the same desire for the most outlandish costume crosses all of our minds. Currently, the nerd look is a rising fad among teenagers. Yes, the nerdy glasses and plaid tucked-in shirts have already been spotted around campus last Halloween, but don't be mistaken; the nerd costume hasn’t gone out of style yet. Get inspired with these creative ways to reinvent the nerd look. With ordinary, everyday clothes and this creative guide to lead you, the possibilites for nerd looks are endless.

    School Nerd: What better way can you pay homage to Steve Urkel from Family Matters than to master his look for Halloween? Find a prim collared shirt and tuck it into a pair of pegged jeans. If it’s chilly outside, put on a tight cardigan. To add your own personal twist, wear colorful socks that express your personality. For the finishing touches, throw on bright-colored suspenders, a pair of oversized reading glasses, and adjust your backpack to a minimum fit.

    Business nerd: If you have a sarcastic sense of humor, the business nerd will suit you nicely. You might idolize Dwight Schrute from The Office or the character Napoleon Dynamite so here’s how to recreate their look. Ask your father or brother to lend you a suit, (preferably in basic colors to achieve Shrute's look, brown if you’re emulating Napoleon’s) and wear a pair of fake glasses with thick lenses. No matter how crazed of a fan you are, looking like Dwight (as charming as he is) is not worth damaging your eyesight. Napoleon would also wear a “Vote for Pedro” shirt underneath, but a dress shirt would suffice. Girls have the option of wearing a knee length skirt with knee high socks.

    The tradition of Halloween never stops (change “stops” to “ends”) and the time has come again to parade around in costumes, indulging in sweet treats. Whether we are (change “we are” to “it is” … you were right the first time why’d you change it?) carving in a local pumpkin patch, running through Knott’s Scary Farm, or getting spooked by a horror movie, the same desire for the most outlandish costume crosses all of our minds.

    The tradition of Halloween never ends and the time has come again to parade around in costumes, indulging in sweet treats. Whether it is carving in a local pumpkin patch, running through Knott’s Scary Farm, or getting spooked by a horror movie, the same desire for the most outlandish costume crosses all of our minds. Currently, the nerd look is a rising fad among teenagers. Yes, the dorky glasses and plaid tucked-in shirts have already been spotted around campus last Halloween, but don't be mistaken; this idea is still in style. Get inspired with these innovative ways to reinvent the nerd look. With ordinary, everyday clothes and this creative guide to lead you, the possibilities are endless.

    School Nerd: What better way can you pay homage to Steve Urkel from Family Matters than to master his character for Halloween? Find a prim collared shirt and tuck it into a pair of pegged jeans. To add your own personal twist, wear colorful socks that express your personality. For the finishing touches, throw on bright-colored suspenders, a pair of oversized reading glasses, and adjust your backpack to a minimum fit. With your newfound excitement and haste to get to school, don't forget to throw on a cardigan to avoid catching a cold. However, Urkel’s mismatched preppy wardrobe is only a small part of him. Observe his spontaneous charisma such as the gangly way in which he walks to the enthusiasm in his nasally voice. Role-playing Urkel can finally be completed if you can mimic his actions on Halloween.

    Science nerd: When you think of science nerds, you probably imagine the countless AHS students excelling in AP sciences. Well, how can you be the one science geek to stand out this Halloween? One nerd comes to mind (whose vast knowledge of all things science is tantamount to his impressive apparel): Bill Nye the Science Guy. Nye has a sophistication that you can obtain by donning a light blue lab coat over a white buttoned-down shirt. Wear a pair of lab goggles and gloves, and clip on a patterned bow tie to make your costume comical.

    Business nerd: If you have a sarcastic sense of humor, the business nerd will suit you nicely. You might idolize Dwight Schrute from The Office or the character Napoleon Dynamite so here’s how to recreate their ensembles. Ask your father or brother to lend you a suit, (preferably in basic colors to achieve Shrute's appearance, brown if you’re emulating Napoleon’s) and wear a pair of fake glasses with thick lenses. No matter how crazed of a fan you are, looking like Dwight (as charming as he is) is not worth damaging your eyesight. Napoleon would wear a “Vote for Pedro” shirt underneath, but a dress shirt would suffice. Girls can create the illusion of knobbly knees by pairing a knee-length skirt with mismatched socks.

    Jock Nerd: Before you claim this impossible to achieve considering it's an oxymoron, this clever guide has found a way to mix the cool jock with the awkward nerd. Try the basketball nerd this year for a more outrageous and original costume. Go against the norm of a typical jersey and basketball shorts, and try a tank top tucked into tight short shorts instead to give your outfit more nerd appeal. Accessorize with multiple neon sweatbands and a pair of bright tube socks. If you’re finding this hard to picture, refer to Jackie Moon of Semi-Pro. Of course, the afro isn’t necessary, but it would be a fun supplement.
