Conspiracy Theorist Costume


We live in a world that thrives on secrets, mysteries, and the occasional plot twist. The conspiracy theorist has become a cultural archetype, often portrayed in movies, television shows, and even popular memes. It’s no wonder that dressing up as a conspiracy theorist has become a popular costume choice for many occasions. Let’s delve deeper into what makes a convincing conspiracy theorist costume and why it has gained so much popularity.

The Anatomy of a Conspiracy Theorist Costume:

Tinfoil Hat:

This is the most iconic and widely recognized symbol of a conspiracy theorist. The tinfoil hat is often joked about as a way to block mind-reading capabilities or protect the brain from external influences. Crafting a tinfoil hat can be as simple as wrapping a piece of aluminum foil around a regular cap or beanie.

Messy Clothes:

A conspiracy theorist is often portrayed as someone who spends a lot of time holed up, researching, and connecting the dots. An unkempt look with wrinkled shirts, mismatched socks, and perhaps a vest with too many pockets completes the attire.


Think oversized glasses, a magnifying glass, a notebook filled with scribbles, or even red yarn to “connect the dots”. Other fun accessories might include fake news articles, UFO models, or cryptic symbols.


Create mock pamphlets or newsletters about popular conspiracy theories. Titles like “The Philadelphia Experiment: A Disappearing Act?“, “Moon Landing: Fact or Fiction?”, or “Who REALLY Built the Pyramids?” can add a fun element to the costume.

The ‘Crazy’ Wall:

If you’re attending a party and want to create a booth or backdrop, consider making a “crazy” wall. This can be a board filled with photos, articles, and red strings connecting different points.

Why the Popularity?

The appeal of the conspiracy theorist costume lies in its blend of humor, intrigue, and cultural relevance. Dressing up as a conspiracy theorist can be a humorous nod to the quirky, sometimes outlandish ideas that circulate in society. Additionally, given the abundance of conspiracy-themed content in entertainment and news, the costume is easily recognizable and relevant.

Moreover, it’s a versatile costume. Whether for Halloween, themed parties, or just a fun get-together, it always sparks conversation and laughter.

In the End:

The conspiracy theorist costume offers a blend of humor, mystery, and a touch of cultural satire. While it’s essential to approach the topic with sensitivity and avoid making fun of genuine beliefs, when done right, it can be a fun, creative, and easily recognizable costume choice. So, the next time you’re brainstorming costume ideas, consider diving into the world of conspiracies and mysteries with this quirky ensemble. And remember, the truth is out there!

We need a vaccine for conspiracy theory stupidity

Conspiracy theorists have long overstayed their welcome as humourous oddities.

Every point listed on the sign is a conspiracy theory that someone, somewhere, has stated or promoted at one time or another.

Perhaps the medical community's next priority should be a vaccine for conspiracy theory stupidity. (But maybe tell them it's something to make them smarter.)

I'm gonna need a bigger bucket

A large portion of Canada is still being ravaged by vast wildfires. We currently have volunteer firefighters from the United States, France, Spain, Portugal, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand helping the overworked and exhausted Canadian firefighters in trying to control these fires. For all this international help, we are, of course, grateful.

And in times like this, the conspiracy theorists have come out of the woodwork, some suggesting that these fires have been deliberately set by climate activists trying to make a point for their cause. This claim is, of course, completely stupid.

When all is said and done, humanity's detrimental activity on the climate has more than likely contributed greatly to these destructive wildfires. When the second largest country in the world is on fire from coast to coast to coast, it is cause for concern for every other country. The firefighters will ultimately win this battle against these fires and get them under control and extinguished... this time. Each time is only going to get harder.

We're Here looks at Smoke today.

I have made a disturbing discovery...

It seem that The Beatles were having a go at us after all. After careful research and meticulous documentation I have discovered that the first letter of 18 of these songs creates a mysterious, nay secret, message. But I will let you decide for yourself if there is validity to my discovery or I am merely a conspiracy theorist.

Hey Jude
And Your Bird Can Sing
Please Please Me
Paperback Writer
Yellow Submarine

All You Need Is Love
Penny Lane
I Want to Hold Your Hand
Let It Be

From Me To You
Oh Darling
Octopus’s Garden
Lady Madonna

Day Tripper
And I Love Her

As far as I know, I am the first to discover this revelation which leads me to conclude that just maybe The Beatles did not even exist but were alien jokesters. The truth is out there... or is it just an April Fool's prank?

We're Here celebrates April Fool's Day today.

The Convoluted Conspiracy Theorist

Political protests bring out all sorts of individuals, sometimes with convoluted grievances and conspiracy theories. This pensive gentleman stood holding a sign implying Trump's connection to Russia's interests, except through the bizarre implication of historic spheres of influence as represented by national origin of the FLOTUS.

Seriously folks... if the Earth was flat, cats would have knocked everything off by now.

But on a (real) serious note... enough with the anti-science, conspiracy-theory, anti-reality bullshit from the far right.
