Halloween's just a few weeks away, so we've got some Arizona-themed costume ideas for you.
Check out our top 10 picks for Arizona costumes:
There's a reason there's a horror movie titled Red State.
-Create a misspelled nonsense sign like "Keep yer gubmint hands off my Medicare!"
-Use pliers to pull out extra teeth (you need only about six total)
-Prepare hysterical rants about Obama and why he's the new Hitler
Represent the only thing most people around the country know about Arizona.
-Get a cactus costume
-Consider a sexy cactus costume
Arizonans have always had a strange obsession with aliens, and most people still aren't over the "Phoenix lights."
-Any ol' alien costume will do
-The Fife Symington costume would be most authentic
A common species of Arizonan. Hit 'em right in the stereotype.

6.) Jan Brewer
A lot easier than it sounds.

5.) Old Person
In addition to cacti, this is the other thing people know about Arizona.

3.) Joe Arpaio/MCSO Deputy
This one's a real crowd-pleaser in the Latino neighborhoods.

Another staple of the Arizona landscape.
