21 Pop Culture Halloween Costumes That Could Only Work In 2016

There are a lot of Halloween costume options out there, but one of my personal favorites is doing something that is culturally relevant. You know, a costume that is based on something that happened in the last few months that shows people that you are *cool* and *trendy* and you always know what’s going on in Hollywood and also the news and also social media. Sure, throwback pop culture costumes are fun, but doing something more recent can sometimes be even more fun. Each new year presents us with new options. Last year, in 2015, you couldn’t go to a Halloween party without running into someone dressed as an emoji or as the Netflix and Chill couple or even pizza rat. In 2014, there were 800 Miley Cyrus’s running around. This year, 2016, is no exception – there are tons of pop culture costumes to choose from.

2016 has been, uh, an interesting year, which is putting it mildly. This is bad for a lot of reasons, like that America is in the middle of the worst election ever in history (IMO) and everything is going downhill. But the upside is that we can choose to see the silver lining by making these things into a Halloween costume that says you are clever and very cool on the Internet. Here are a few pop culture Halloween costume ideas that will only work in 2016, because by the time 2017 rolls around, we will never want to see these again. Or the world will have ended. Either way! Check out these ideas, and take advantage of them while you can:
