If you want to somehow symbolize California in your choice of Halloween costume, you have a few options. Yes, yes, you can always do Schwarzenegger, but isn't everybody doing that this year? I suppose you can also go as BoiFromTroy, which would be unique, but -- no offense, Boi -- who's going to know who you're supposed to be?

No. Your California costume has to be obvious, without being too obvious. Here are a few suggestions:

1. Over at, Rob Cockerham designed a geographically-correct costume, which sold for $71 on eBay.

2. More subtle is this costume designed by a 15-year-old boy in Maine.

3. Most subtle would be wearing a costume that's been recalled. (Please note that Option #3 also meets the incendiary criteria of Option #2.)
