Guys, Halloween is less than a week away! I’m so excited and I already have a costume all picked out (I’m being Cher from Clueless and getting totally ’90s). For those of you who have yet to come up with an idea, time is running out. But don’t worry: you can still make your own awesome DIY costume and this post right here should give you some ideas.
You already know what kind of Halloween costumes you’re guaranteed to see this year: a sexy food or occupation outfit, Miley Cyrus, Water White from Breaking Bad, a zombie, etc. You should go for a relatively new costume trend – Internet memes! These can be funny, creative and totally meta. Also, when people ask you what you are, you can see, “I’m so-and-so meme!” and they’ll be all like, “OMG so cute!” Not to mention these should be pretty easy and cheap to create. Here are 12 examples of funny and amazing DIY meme costumes from around the web (by around the web, I mean Pinterest, obviously) to inspire you:
Grumpy CatGrumpy Cat has to be one of the cutest memes out there... and even though he'd probably be pretty meh about it, you can be him for Halloween. All you need to do is figure out this makeup (which doesn't look too difficult), wear all white and find yourself brown cat ears and a tail. Voila! Source: SavvySugar.com
Ridiculously Photogenic GuyRemember when someone took a picture of this dude running a marathon and the entire Internet freaked out because he looked ridiculously photogenic even while running? Yeah, you can be him (just not as photogenic maybe). Get yourself a brown shirt, black shorts and plaster a huge smile on your face all night. Comfy and easy! Source: Buzzfeed
Hipster ArielThis is, hands down, my favorite costume in this roundup. I wish I had thought of it for this year! This girl is actually at Comic Con, but it works as a costume for Halloween too. There are tons of variations out there, but I like this shirt because not everyone wants to walk around in a shell bra on Halloween. Source: DTJaaaaam.com
Stingray PhotobombI saw this last year and it was immediately my favorite thing. The stingray photobomb picture is the most perfect picture ever taken and this is a perfect idea for a group costume. Three of you can get comfy and wear regular clothes (or bathing suits and life jackets if you want to be really authentic) while one of you gets to dress up as a stingray. Then pose just like this all night long. Source: Pinterest
The Most Interesting Man In The WorldThe Dos Equis man quickly became the most interesting man in the world and an amazing meme. This would make an adorable couple or best friends costume. So clever! Source: BurnStyler.com
ErmahgerdWho hasn't seen the ermahgerd meme before? You'll be cozy in a white sweater and a colorful vest and you don't even need to brush your hair. All you really need is that goofy face. Source: Costume-Works.com
Troll FaceI guess you can make this into a little dress yourself? Or as a more simple option, just print it out and put it on a t-shirt. Instant troll face. Source: Pinterest
Forever AloneI've always found the Forever Alone meme terrifyingly creepy and I don't find it any less creepy on someone's actual face. But if you're feeling forever alone... go for it. This will get some laughs. Source: Reddit
LOLCats, I Can Haz CheezburgerYou'll probably see a lot of people wearing a cat costume this Halloween because it's easy and cute. Take yours a step further and make it into an LOLCats costume. This dude's makeup is elaborate, but you can just try out Caitlin's tutorial which is much cuter. Source: MentalFloss.com
Nyan CatThis is a pretty perfect costume for Nyan cat, but it's also pretty expensive. You can make your own by buying a similar skirt and decorating a tank to look like the one here. Source: ArtFire.com
Socially Awkward PenguinI love what this guy used as his caption here. I'm guessing you can buy these t-shirts somewhere online, or you can also make your own. Just be socially awkward! Source: AcidCow.com
Condescending WonkaWho hasn't used the Condescending Wonka meme at some point? This is very elaborate but also really cute and funny. I love the caption, too. Source: Pinterest
Which of these costumes was your favorite? What are you being for Halloween this year? Which meme costume would you dress up as? Tell me in the comments.
