“Halloween is the one day a year a girl can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it.”
This may be true in “girl world.” But pop culture Halloween costumes have always been my personal favorite. They’re a great way to show off your taste and to start a conversation with someone who can fan girl/boy with you. . . so here are 15 of my favorite (and mostly simple) pop culture halloween costume ideas from this year. (But hey, if you want to add your own slutty twist to these I won’t judge.)
1. Walter White
Heisenberg is known for sporting a bright yellow jumpsuit, but you can bear all in a pair of underwear to throw it back to the days of just good, old Mr. White.
2. Mrs. Doubtfire
Switch up your typical old lady costume by paying homage to our late, great, childhood hero.
3. Sia “Chandelier” Dancer Maddie Ziegler
Totally not just adding this because of my unhealthy obsession with Dance Moms. . .
4. Guardian’s of The Galaxy – Star Lord
5. Or on that same note. . . dancing baby Groot
6. Alfonso Ribeiro and Whitney on Dancing With The Stars
The Carlton is BACK. Good costume for couples/fans of Fresh Prince (aka everyone)
7. Orange Is The New Black – Piper
Unless you live under a rock, you’ve heard somebody raving about the Netflix series Orange Is The New Black (Or live with two roommates who spoiled the whole second season for you. Not that I’m bitter.)
8. Shia LaBeouf’s identity crisis
Oh, the Irony.
10. DIY Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Easy and fun group costume made by painting baking tins.
12. The Office – Dwight
The Office is so timeless it never leaves pop culture. And who doesn’t love Dwight?
13. Grumpy Cat
Transform yourself into the infamous, beloved, and slightly overused internet meme with some face paint and a scowl.
14. Hercules – “The Rock”
Try to tell yourself you’re a serious actor now too.
15. Or get super lazy and be like this kid
Happy costume hunting!
