If you can find a tiger costume, make sure it’s really big on you, since the Tiger has fallen on hard times. It might help to black out a few teeth with makeup, which will make you a toothless tiger.

8. Lord Mayor of any town

Wear a business suit (if it’s slightly ill-fitting, that’s good – you are a person of The People). Make yourself a giant necklace out of cardboard coasters or old dvds, and be sure to shake hands with every person at the party.

9. Farmer

The Irish Farmer Calendar is a hot seller, for obvious reasons. Source: farmercalendar.com

Put a twist on this old favorite by being one of those modern, sexy-charity-calendar farmers: go shirtless and wear loose jeans and wellies. Bonus points if you bring a toy cow to milk or a piggy bank to feed. (Watch out for the Anglo Irish Bankers, though.)

  10. Michael D. Higgins

The President of Ireland is a distinguished scholar and Irish speaker who also happens to look a lot like Barry Fitzgerald. If you can pull off an air of dignity mixed with impish humor, this is your look. Bonus points if the Saw Doctors are inspired to write a song in your honor.

11. BONUS: Molly Malone

Face it, girls: we all secretly want to wear a “Naughty” (translation: sexy) costume on Halloween at least once. The statue of Dublin’s iconic / tragic fishmonger has earned the nickname The Tart with the Cart for a reason. Bonus points if you bring a rubber fish or a wheelbarrow.
