If you found our other three D.I.Y. Halloween costumes—Kanye at the VMAs, Kenny Powers and Officer Ricky—to be not quite hilariously scathing enough of our society, maybe you would rather dress up as an all-star athlete who threw away a $25 million dollar contract by accidentally shooting himself in the leg.

We're talking about none other than former New York Giants receiver, Plaixco Burress! We feel sorry for this firearm toting fool—almost killing yourself seems like punishment enough to us—but not sorry enough not to wring all the laughs we can get out of his situation. If you feel the same, read on to learn how to perfectly capture the look. Just remember to leave the guns at home. We don't want life imitating art.
