If you haven’t already decided what you’re going to be for Halloween this year, here are a few ideas based on current pop culture obsessions.
The Royal Baby. Who doesn’t love when adults dress up as babies? Make sure you distinguish yourself as the royal baby and not just some random, non-royal, unimportant, everyday baby. You certainly wouldn’t want to be confused with an ugly baby, like your coworker’s or your best friend’s.
Minions. Everyone loves these adorable Despicable Me characters, and if you don’t, well, there’s probably something wrong with you. They are so lovable and original, you are bound to get a lot of compliments throughout the night. Be especially impressive by contorting your face to literally accommodate the cyclops eye of Carl. And make sure you play the part and walk around chanting “Bee-do” and saying other unintelligible nonsense. People will love you for it.
A pregnant Kim Kardashian. It’s still hard to believe sometimes that this particular Kardashian reproduced (and with arrogant Kanye West nonetheless) but the world continues to love her and her offspring despite her flaws. Plus I just think it would be really funny to see someone walking around as a preggo Kim.
The Fox. By now everyone and their mother has seen the instantly famous “What the fox says” video and if not, you must be living under a rock. Regardless, this chart-topper features several different versions of The Fox to choose from (not to mention other animals that make for one of the coolest tea parties I’ve ever seen). If you do decide to dress up as The Fox, maybe you can enlighten us as to what a fox actually says, because no one seems to know.
Miley Cyrus twerking in her stuffed bear backpack. I don’t approve of Miley’s recent behavior (or music videos), but you can play this one up as a joke and probably still win a costume contest or two.
Creepy Snickers commercial lady. This one isn’t actually current (thanks to the selfish ad guys who decided not to air the commercial again this year), but it’s still relevant enough to make this list, and awesome enough to never get old. It’s pretty much the best commercial I’ve ever seen, and one of the creepiest costumes you could hope for this south of Halloween Horror Nights, and I think it would be pretty fantastic if I saw someone out and about dressed up in the mask and leopard coat.
Good luck executing your costume, and please get back to me with some photographic proof. Also be sure to check out my costume ideas from last year here.
