Wednesday on The Daily Weekly we provided an update on nationwide Barack Obama and Mitt Romney Halloween mask sales at Spirit Halloween stores. As we've noted on a couple occasions, the chain of Halloween-themed stores says that presidential candidate mask sales have correctly predicted the winner of the last four elections.

After the post went live, noting that Obama's lead in mask sales has slipped over the last week and wondering whether this constitutes an ominous sign for the POTUS, we received a possible alternate explanation via Twitter.

While the explanation may not fully explain the mask-sales numbers, it is worth sharing for its sheer awesomeness.

The tweet links to a post from last week on The Stir by CafeMom, in which instructions are given for creating your very own "Binder Full of Women" Halloween costume. There's even a video tutorial!

According to The Stir by CafeMom:

Whether you watched the last Presidential debate or not -- you walk into any Halloween party with this get-up and people will think you are genius. It is seriously the GREATEST DIY costume ever. Regardless of what side of the aisle your friends are on, this costume is sure to turn a few heads.

The best part ... the costume took us less than two hours to make and cost less than $20.

As The Stir details, the materials you'll need to construct your Binder Full of Women Halloween costume include: three sheets pre-cut foam board (38in x 48in), several sheets of large poster board (for the pages inside the binder), duct tape, binder rings, scissors, ribbon, markers, magazines, and one glue stick.

Sounds simple enough to round up, right? Right!

So here's how it's done:

That's rad.
