With the holiday on us, it’s time to keep an eye out for modern Halloween costumes. Instead of dressing up as the same thing year after year, there are plenty of fresh ideas out there. If you think about the media coverage over the past few years, you can easily find silly, modern Halloween costumes. If you want to make your friends laugh, check out these ideas.
1 Grumpy Cat
We’re all familiar with this meme that has taken over the internet. Instead of being a typical sexy cat like most girls, try dressing up as Grumpy Cat. If you don’t want to spend a lot of money, this is the costume for you. It’s simple to create, since it only consists of face make-up and a pair of cat ears. This is one of the modern Halloween costumes that it's okay if someone doesn't understand. If someone that doesn’t get the reference, then you can always tell them that you’re a simple cat and they’ll understand.
Millions of people have seen the music video for Gangnam Style. For a time, it was one of the most popular songs on the radio. If you want an excuse to do the dance again, why not be Psy for Halloween? You can buy a blue suit match it with a bow tie, and you’re done. It’s as simple as that.
3 Breaking Bad
Celebrate the Breaking Bad finale by dressing up as one of the characters from the show. If you don’t want to buy a bright yellow hazmat suit, you can draw a fake tattoo on your wrist and dress as Jessie. If Walt is your favorite character, invest in a hat and a pair of glasses. There are tons of characters on the show that would make for great costumes. Just don’t include any spoilers in your outfit, because some people still need to catch up!
Do you have a fake fur coat lying around? How about a pair of onesie pajamas? You can dress up as Macklemore from his Thrift Shop video by wearing whatever you have around the house. You won’t have to spend a dime to create your outfit. If you do, it’ll be cheap, because you can find it at the thrift shop.
Okay, this isn’t exactly a new idea. People have been dressing up as zombies for years, but with the popularity of The Walking Dead and World War Z, there are new ways that you can dress up as the undead. You can steal from AMC’s show and dress up as your favorite dead character. Or you could go as one of the survivors, like Rick or Michonne. You can still splash some fake blood on you to look like you just got into a fight. .
The BBC show has been around for a while, but it’s finally returning soon. In order to celebrate, dress up as Sherlock by wearing a simple overcoat and scarf. If you’d prefer to dress like John, try giving yourself a mustache to honor his new look. Of course, there are powerful girls on the show that you could choose to dress up as as well. Try dressing like Irene if you want a sultry look and Molly for a cutesy, geeky look.
7 Miley Cyrus
Miley has had so many different looks that all of your friends could dress up as her and look like different people. You can go back to her Hannah Montana days and wear a blonde wig. You could channel her VMA performance and grab a foam finger. You could wear a skimpy outfit and go around twerking. Whatever you decide to do, it’ll be obvious that you’re trying to be the pop star.
Even if you wouldn’t dress up in any of these costumes, I hope you got a laugh out of them. Do you know what you’re dressing up as this Halloween? What’s the best costume that you’ve ever seen?
