It's going to take some SERIOUS work to top these costumes!
Everyone loves that time of the year when it's time to start thinking about what you're going to dress up as for Halloween. One of the best parts about picking out a costume is that you can go solo or plan something big with your friends, and there're TONS of options for both.
It can be SO hard to find good costume ideas that aren't massively played out (like pirates and witches) and without having to go as something absurd like "sexy corn" (YES, that is a thing and NO ... don't look it up).
That is why the Internet is a gold mine for costume ideas and not just because Google search exists. Anything remotely crazy IRL can be put on the Internet and become a viral sensation by the end of the day. And TBH, we'd rather talk about how many Pizza Rats and Left Sharks we saw at the Halloween party instead of trying to remember who wasn't dressed up like a vampire.
If you are the type of person who likes to dress up as something new every year, (I do too!) then consider this list your guide to All Things Halloween. Instead of scouring the Internet for something original enough and emulates your style, take notes from some our favorite viral sensations and cosplays.
The best part about these costume ideas? You don't have to spend an arm and a leg to get the look (well, for most of them anyway). Sometimes, the best part about Halloween is flexing those creative muscles and putting together an outfit using only a bed sheet and a wig.
So whether you're eating your weight in candy or getting drunk in a Cat Woman costume (or both — no judging here), make this Halloween one that you and your friends will want to top the next year and the year after that.
