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.

At the end of their last episode, "Grey's Anatomy" teased the return of another character from Meredith's past. After the return of Patrick Dempsey's, Derek Shepherd, Grey's fans know that no one is off-limits.

The return of these characters comes after Meredith was diagnosed with COVID-19 and began experiencing hallucinations of her loved ones.

I love listening to Christmas music just as much as the next person, but when I turn on my local holiday radio station each year, it just feels repetitive. No hate to musicians like Burl Ives or Nat King Cole, but Christmas music needs an update. Personally, I'm tired of the same "Let It Snow" and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas". So plug in your Christmas tree, make some hot cocoa, and listen to these amazing (and updated) holiday songs.

10 Christmas Songs For Your Festive Playlist

I have no shame in starting to feel festive super early.

All of these songs are definitely popular. However, I have the strong opinion that having the songs on your Christmas playlist be popular is extremely important. Having everyone sing to the songs is most of the fun; it adds to the festivity of whatever you're doing.

Personally, I love to bake cookies and hum along as I cannot sing and no one should ever hear me. Whatever you do for the holidays, enjoy your festive time and the season!

5 Movies And TV Shows That Got Mental Illness Right​

There is a very fine line between representation for mentally ill people and demonizing them for the sake of entertainment. Hollywood has a tendency to sensationalize mental illness, but these shows and movies got it right.

Lionsgate

At the risk of being dismissive of all the progress we've made, mental health representation is still seriously lacking. Many shows fall into the traps of making their mentally ill character violent, making professional help seem useless, or making characters who don't reflect the reality for people living with mental illness.
