Meanwhile, on Pinterest …
Don’t be suprised if you get Zucker-punched in this get up!
Steve Jobs costumes only work if you can nail the steely laser-beam eyes. This kid nails it.
Costume or marketing spiel? Why not BOTH? Carting around a big sign for a hook-up app is like the worst of both worlds. But hey—at least you have a shield if people throw garbage at you.
Ironically, this Pinterest costume’s not likely to wind-up on a lot of pinboards. But it will do in a pinch. (And pinch is what you’ll get, if you forget to slap another board up in the rear. You’ve been warned.)
For a topical tech costume, this Instagram outfit is kind of old-timey … which works if you think about it.
This super-sized iPhone looks a little worse for wear.
Expect this costume to trend!
Yup. That’s SnapChat alright.
There’s more than one way to get loaded.
The ultimate effort to look effortless!
