Kim Davis Trending Costume Ideas

Anti-marriage equality Kentucky County Clerk Kim Davis was in the news a lot this summer, in part due to her short jail sentence served in September for contempt of court. Her refusal to issue marriage licenses despite a court order brought her story to international news for several weeks.

Now Kim Davis is a hot Halloween costume for 2015. A standard Kim Davis costume is pretty easy: long sleeve white shirt with short sleeve blue shirt layered on top, long wig, glasses, and you're done. But you could take it a step or two further. Here are some fun and original Kim Davis Halloween costume ideas.
