It's winter and as the cold front rolls in so does a new shipment of crack cocaine from wherever crack cocaine comes from. You may be living in a big city where crackheads tend to commune and think to yourself "How can I get my hands in some dirty fingerless gloves this season." Well, you are in luck! You don't have to be a crackhead to dress like one. And if you are new to crack, you might not know exactly how to fit in the scene so we're here to help guide you through the crackhead trends for this winter and how you can achieve them all on your own.
GARBAGE CAN FIRES — Perfect for under an overpass or down a dark alley, a garbage can fire can help cast a warm glow onto your already lit expression. Great for a night with “friends” or huddling alone with perceived spirits these recepticles will be a focal point this winter.
SNAGGLE TOOF — A tooth is a straight tooth, a toof is that one straggler right in front that seems to be going in several directions at once. It doesn’t matter if it’s Spring, Summer, Fall or Winter the snaggle never goes out of style. Most people assume this is from a pipe or a birth defect. No, this look is most easily achieved by getting into a bum fight or hitting your tooth on a 40 oz.
FINGERLESS GLOVES — Nothing says hot-cold like a moody crackhead freaking out at a 7–11 and then asking politely for a free cup of coffee. That’s why the fingerless gloves are a perfect accessory. They keep you warm while also letting in the cool air. Since you are breathing more rapidly than usually, well, so should your fingers! This look can be attained by taking a regular pair of dollar store gloves, burning them, biting them and sucking them to shreds.
DIRTY BEANIE — There’s plenty of places to procure a new beanie…homeless shelters, hospitals and community centers to name a few…but you don’t want one of those. Old trash beanies are the trend for this winter so find yourself a dumpster, a headlamp and a sack cause you’re going to need some serious determination.
Being a crackhead this year is all about getting creative and having fun with intermittent bouts of hostile aggression, paranoia and zoning out. Fill in all of the transitional gaps with your very own scavenger hunt for the holidays as you locate the above stated trends and keep it a hundred percent.
