What Everyone Wore
for Halloween This Year
By Desiree Pore
This year proved to be an important year for pop culture; some of our favorite couples surprisingly broke up, victims of casting couch predators now attained the justice they’ve always wanted, Keeping Up With the Kardashians will live on for another five years, and so on.
With countless of pop culture moments that left an indelible mark in our everyday lives, what better way to commemorate some of these moments than with a Halloween costume? Here we list down some of the obvious costumes that your friends wore this year.
Pennywise from It
The famed clown is the current buzz of the horror genre thanks to its scarring smile and makeup. Yes, every year people come in different creepy clown costumes, but this year people stepped it up a notch thanks to the renaissance-inspired outfit of Pennywise.
Dancing Hotdog from Snapchat
Who could forget that dancing hotdog we saw in our friends’ snaps? The quirky dancing hotdogs were all over our Snapchat timelines when it became popular this year.
A Handmaid from The Handmaid’s Tale
The Handmaid’s Tale is an important show that debuted this year which is about women being subjected to power-hungry leaders. Thanks to the show’s cultural significance, the red cloak, and white bonnet attire will forever be synonymous to the show.
Beyoncé’s Pregnancy Announcement
Our world stopped spinning when Queen B debuted her baby bump Instagram after weeks of speculation. The announcement was such an important event in pop culture that it became the most liked photo on Instagram. Not bad for a Halloween costume!
Any Character from Riverdale
When Riverdale first graced our screens, people became obsessed with diners, neon lights, and of course, Cole Sprouse. Everyone wanted to either be Betty or Veronica this year, and we don’t mind at all.
Who could forget the man who launched a thousand memes? Not only is Salt Bae a pop culture icon, dressing up as the salt-loving guy is also easy to do.
Pregnant Kylie Jenner
It was a shock when it was first reported that the 20-year-old makeup mogul is pregnant with her first child with rapper Travis Scott in time for Keeping Up With the Kardashians 10th year anniversary special; the pregnancy was a monumental moment in pop culture, that it birthed a Halloween costume all on its own.
Any of the Old Taylor
The old Taylor may not come to the phone right now, but it didn’t stop people dressing up like the OG singer’s look this Halloween.
