How to dress up like Tobias Fünke from 'Arrested Development' for Halloween

The Costume: 'Arrested Development's' Dr. Tobias Fünke (David Cross) suffers from the extremely rare "never-nude" syndrome. He must wear very short jean cutoffs at all times to prevent anyone from ever seeing his pelvic region.

What You'll Need: Before choosing this costume, consider the weather forecast for Oct. 31st or make sure you'll be at an indoor party all night. This outfit won't protect you from the elements. It also lends very little to the imaginable so you cannot be easily embarrassed. That said, if you go through with it, people will give you bravery points all night.

Take an old pair of jeans, the more worn-out the better, put them on and mark a line three to six inches down from the top of your legs. Remove the paints and cut along the line with a pair of shears to detach the legs. Make it as jagged as possible because the more strings that hang down, the better.

Buy a bald cap, spirit gum and fake brown hair at any costume shop. Some places sell these in a complete set so you can fashion hair on a bald head any way you want. Place short hairs around the sides and back of your bald cap so that it resembles Tobias's head.

Also at the costume shop, look for a thick brown fake mustache. Many variety packs of mustaches call this style The Bruiser or The Rogue. Bring spirit gum with you on Halloween because those fake mustaches often have to be reattached. Finding the correct '80s 'Perspective' Vintage Clear Lens Glasses may be tough at just any costume shop, but you can order them on Amazon for $10.

Accessories: A bathrobe may be a good thing to bring since you may be cold getting to and from the party. This will also make the costume a grand reveal to other party-goers. A white bath towel may also be a fun prop. Wrap it around your waist and when people rip it off you, freak out and try to hide your "nakedness." To really mix it up, buy some red Speedos. Halfway through the party, pull them over your cutoffs and ask people, "Excuse me, do these effectively hide my thunder?"

Obviously, the best accessory for any Tobias costume is long list of sexual double-entendres to keep everyone wondering your true sexuality.
