Tuck one half of the shirt in while leaving the other half out. Yes, this is a fashion choice. Wear a big black belt and a pair of faded and torn jeans. Tuck the bottom of the jeans messily into a pair of black boots.
Carry around a large bottle of alcohol. Any bottle with a handle will do. Opt for plastic if attending a party, and use iced tea or leave the bottle empty if attending a party at a bar or restaurant where alcohol is served (as they won’t let you bring it in with you).

You could make your own giant microphone by gluing a paper cup, open side down onto the top of a paper towel roll. Paint the whole thing black. Cover the paper cup with black felt. Make an MTV label and glue it onto the microphone.
Add an “I heart Beyonce” sticker to the back of your shirt, made by writing on a blank sticker or masking tape.

Be a PC
A friend who is going along to a party with you can go as a PC. Wear a suit, a pair of glasses. For added measure, you can wear a “My Name is….” name tag sticker and add the word “PC.”
