(The Picket)-With Halloween fast approaching, the struggle to find the perfect costume is real.
If you like to stay caught up with the latest trends, television shows, or movies then the bestselling costumes of 2017 are for you.
The top five costumes are: Wonder-Woman, Rick from Rick and Morty, Eleven from Stranger Things, Pennywise from the recent remake of IT, and pretty much any character from Game of Thrones.
If you prefer costumes that will draw attention and make your friends laugh. you could try to recreate your favorite meme, dress as a poop emoji, or try the presidential piggyback costume.
If your preferred style is humorous, but you want to be punny there’s options for you too.
You could use sayings such as ‘holy cow’ to create a punny costume, you could dress as “devil” eggs, you could dress as a cat and have the word ‘copy’ on your shirt, or you could dress as a doctor and have your nametag read ‘Pepper’. Dr. Pepper, get it?
If you prefer throwbacks costumes then dress as anyone from Harry Potter, the Sanderson Sisters from Hocus Pocus, anyone from Lord of the Rings, someone from Star Wars, or get your friends together and dress as a 90’s boyband.
If you want to stay true to the Halloween classics then dress as a ghost, as Frankenstein, a vampire, a zombie, or a werewolf.
If you don’t have the money to find the perfect costume then you could buy a onesie from Walmart for only 20 dollars.
The onesie selection is vast and has costumes ranging from unicorns, Winnie the Pooh characters, and Star Wars characters to minions, raccoons, cowboys, and The Little Mermaid.
If you prefer to create your own costume you could aim for easy looks such as a cat or a witch or more detailed and complicated looks such as Moana or a Pokemon.
Whatever you decide to dress as this Halloween, own your look and get your Monster Mash on.
