Stop everything. It’s only Sept. 27, but the search for your 2012 Halloween costume just came to a screeching halt.
The official “American Horror Story” Rubber Man Halloween costume is now available and on sale at various online retailers, including, as both The A.V. Club and Vulture have noted, Target. But Target is not the only store selling it: Party City, Drugstore.com and other online retailers also carry the “One size fits most” S&M ensemble, including the FX Network online store, which, naturally, is charging more than what the other outlets are asking.
But wait! If for some reason you don’t want to dress up as the guy who impregnated Connie Britton in a house where dozens of people were murdered, you have other “American Horror Story” options.
You can go as Hot Moira — official costume name: Young Moira Costume Set — which is basically the same thing as dressing up like a French maid with red hair. (Sex addictive behavior and desire to drive Dylan McDermott wild with desire sold separately.) That Halloween get-up — which the neighborhood trick-or-treaters are going to loooove — retails at $74.95 on the FX site, but only $34.98 at Party City.
But that’s not even my favorite. My favorite is the Larry Harvey mask, which affords “AHS” fans with $39.95 the opportunity to dress up as everyone’s favorite burn victim. All you need to complete the look is a semi-decent shovel or, if you’d like to emphasize the optimistic side of Harvey’s existence, the stack of head shots he needs to finally audition for “The Odd Couple.”
I mean, look at this . The Larry Harvey screams Perfect Halloween Costume. Just please, if you know what’s good for you, be very, very careful around open flames.
