Relevant Halloween Costumes That Are Not Ignorantly Offensive

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.

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

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.

4 Ways The Plan To Deport International Students Is Dumb, According To An Exchange Student

The whole policy isn't very stay-in-place, if you ask me.

On Monday, July 6, new federal guidelines were announced that do not allow international students to remain in the U.S. unless they are taking classes in person. Which, if you ask me, is stupid.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?
