Costume Essentials: Red overalls, a yellow shirt, an iPhone, and a hint of desperation.
Why It’s a Great Idea: An inspired choice for anyone who wants to spend Halloween with their bestie (and could use an excuse to be on Instagram all night long), the pathologically superficial girls from “Ingrid Goes West” couldn’t be better suited to a holiday about pretending to be someone you’re not. Just be sure to incessantly document the evening on social media, and don’t stop until every single one of your followers knows that you’re having the best Halloween ever. #Blessed, indeed.

Neon has released the trailer for “Ingrid Goes West,” one of three films Tim League and Tom Quinn’s new distribution company acquired at Sundance. Aubrey Plaza and Elizabeth Olsen star in the Los Angeles–set film, which won a screenwriting award upon its Park City premiere a few months back. Watch below.
Here’s the synopsis: “Following the death of her mother and a series of self-inflicted setbacks, young Ingrid Thorburn (Plaza) escapes a humdrum existence by moving out West to befriend her Instagram obsession and LA socialite Taylor Sloane (Olsen). After a quick bond is forged between these unlikeliest of friends, the façade begins to crack in both women’s lives — with comically malicious results.”
Matt Spicer directed the film, which also stars O’Shea Jackson Jr. and Wyatt Russell. Neon — which also picked up Eliza Hittman’s “Beach Rats” and Michael Larnell’s “Roxanne Roxanne” at Sundance — will release “Ingrid Goes West” in theaters on August 4.
