Relevant Halloween Costumes That Are Not Ignorantly Offensive
Start writing a post

Almost every year around October, people seem to lose their common sense on what is okay to dress up as and what is blatantly not. Sure, there are a lot of touchy subjects, but they are highly easy to avoid. I'm not saying you should never express your opinions, because that would be hypocritical of me, but I am saying, you can restrict yourself from putting on a costume for one night that might hurt someone's feelings. It's really quite simple. But if it's not, here are some ideas to get you started. Disclaimer: not everyone will get your costume if you use one of these.

Kylie Jenner and Stormi: Rise and Shine!

Although this meme has sort of already run it’s course, its a good answer for your 3 person groups costume struggle! One person can be Stormi, one can be Kylie, and one can be the sun!

If you are unfamiliar with these words, head on over to TikTok and educate yourself. This new wave of media stars are easy to dress up as, all you need is a stripped long sleeve, any social media relevant branded shirt, and some quirky accessories.

Extra points if you can actually kick the cap off.

The Kombucha Girl

Treat yourself to a nice kombucha as you memorize her viral video to impress your friends!

David Dobrik giving his friends cars

If you’ve ever watched any of David’s vlogs, you’ve probably seen him someone a car. That’s how often he does it. If you’re interested in this costume, just carry some form of camera around with you as well as a few toy cars to hand out to your friends.

A VSCO Hydro Flask

This could also be a group costume! Wear a monochromatic outfit of one of the traditional bottle colors and your friends can be the others. Add Redbubble stickers to your clothes or a scrunchie around the top of your “bottle”. You could make a handle out of almost any headband

Size 13 men’s Nikes

This meme comes from a recent Netflix original movie that people on twitter found exceptionally hilarious. Honestly, just put a Nike check on your shirt and “size 13” on your back.

The Danielle Cohn Harvard sweatshirt video

This very controversial social media stars iconic video is a perfect (and very comfy) way to spend Halloween. You need her iconic Harvard sweatshirt as well as Adidas pants. Then practice her dance routine for hours so you can get the moves just right. I can’t even explain why this video is relevant honestly.

These are definitely not the most well known memes of Fall 2019, however, I can pretty much guarantee that you will not find yourself matching with someone else's costume. Also if someone does know what you are, befriend them immediately.

I have had many different types of baked mac and cheese and most are dry. I do not like a dry mac and cheese, it just does not seem appealing to me. If you like the creamy cheesy essence of mac and cheese, look no further, this recipe is for you.

This Simple 7-Step DIY Face Mask Combines Safety — And Sustainability

Instead of studying like I intended on doing today, I made a face mask for some reason and thought I'd share how I did.

If you were looking for a simple way to make a mask, I am happy to share how I personally make them. I have a pretty small face in general, so I prefer having my homemade ones so they fit better. This is also a great alternative to just throwing away any clothes! Before starting, you will need to make sure you have fabric, thread, a needle, and pins; if you have a sewing machine, you obviously could use that instead of hand sewing it.

November is such an underrated month.
