Okay, so maybe you don’t need to go as far as channeling your inner Heisenberg (nobody wants that, mmkay?), but with these Walter White-inspired costume ideas, dishes and drinking games, you’ll be partying harder than Marie at a convention for people who are unnaturally obsessed with the color purple (yes, the shade, not the book).


The new season starts on Sunday, Aug. 11 at 9 p.m. EST on AMC.

All of the previous episodes (even the first half of season five) are available on Netflix, so you have no excuse not to host a TV marathon leading up to the big premiere.

This is the only acceptable attire. Well, maybe a Los Pollos or DEA shirt, but if you’re Breaking Bad, you’ve got to go all the way. Bonus points if you shave your head. Or rock the Risky Business-esque buttondown and tighty whities Walt wore in season one. Retro.

Get the look:

This is a Breaking Bad party, not a bar mitzvah at Los Pollos Hermanos, so no real “decor” is needed. In fact, it’ll probably be more fitting with the theme if you don’t clean beforehand. And put up some police caution tape and forget to change that broken lightbulb. Extra seediness is key, unless you’re going the Marie route, in which case: MAKE EVERYTHING PURPLE. When in doubt, Barney up that place, stat.
