13 Costume Ideas For This Halloween

If you’re like me, you’re probably scrambling to come up with a decent idea for a costume with Halloween just around the corner. Every year we tend to see the same nurses, cops, sports fans and witches that every costume store seems to sell. So if you’re looking for something a little more creative, here are a few unique (and not so unique because yeah, we only have so much time left to get those outfits ready) ideas for those last minute Halloween costumes.

1. Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton

These masks are accurate AF and available in so many Halloween stores it's actually hilarious. I have a feeling we'll be having a lot of Donald Trumps running around next weekend. Talk about your creepy ass Halloween.

2. Clowns

And speaking of creepy, you can always go with the classic clown choice if you really want to freak out your neighborhood this year.

PS: Please don't. We've had enough creepy clowns these past few months to last a lifetime (though note my choice of a "happy" clown costume above.)

PPS: JK clowns are always creepy.

3. Joker and Harley Quinn

Kind of basic when it comes to costumes (I'm guessing we'll be seeing a lot of these too) but you can't go wrong.

4. Harambe

5. Snapchat Dog Filter

Yes, this is actually a thing. Click here to go to Amazon and check it out for yourself.

6. Starbucks Drink

For the most basic of the basic bitches. Also, totally DIY-able.

7. Pokemon

With the craze for Pokemon Go this year, you'll be right in the trend with any Pokemon costume.

8. Snapchat filters

This one might take a little more artistry, but if you're good with a makeup brush then you should definitely give these unique looks a shot. Check out Patrick Starrr and Shay Mitchell's tutorial on how to make these Snapchat inspired looks here.

9. Life Alert and Old Lady

Would honestly die if I ever saw this in person (thank you Pinterest 😂).

10. Fuckboy and Dating App

Perfect for any millenial.

11. Whip and Nae Nae

Again, thank you Pinterest. Killin' it 😂.

12. Your favorite fictional character

Basically, any character ever created is fair game (*cough* Game of Thrones *cough*).

13. And if all else fails, “Wear all the black shit in your closet, put on a black mask and call yourself a mystery girl or night fairy.”

One of the things that I love most is space. I am a HUGE space nerd. Literally ask any of my friends. I was first introduced to space when my dad dragged me to see Star Trek. Since walking out of that movie theater in 6th grade, becoming an astronaut hasn't been just some wild dream that could come true.
