The Most Iconic Halloween Costumes of 2016

Halloween may be over but we’re all still recovering from a year of some truly iconic costumes. Creativity, flawless execution and well-thought out representation, these costumes have it all…

1. No-Face

Momo's Facebook

Five-year-old, Momo Lo, from Taiwan had no idea the attention her costume would invite when she dressed as her favorite animated character, No-Face, from “Spirited Away.”

“Who do you want to go as for Halloween?”
“No-face!”
“Do you like no face the most?”
“Yes!”

And play the part Momo Lu did. In a sea of princesses and childish movie characters, Momo stuck out like a sore thumb. Her classmates didn’t seem to share her love for no face, though. But, the tears of her peers only seem to make Momo feel more successful. Considering the mass of attention the costume and reactions got her, Momo didn’t do too bad for herself. Maybe next year, people will be going as, “Momo the overnight sensation.”

2. Beyoncé (“Hold Up”)

Hold up! They don’t love you like we love these tot-costumes. This five-year-old gave Beyoncé a run for her money. Armed with a familiar gold dress and a baseball bat, this cutie isn’t playing any games. She came to win.

3. Dog and Toy; Man as Dog and Toy

The next costume is a two-part win. The first is of a man dressed as his dog’s favorite Gumby toy. The video of the dogs reaction to his owner’s costume went viral.

The result of this viral video created the next costume. “The guy who dress as Gumby and went viral.”
Reddit

The costume may not of gotten the reaction intended, though. People were slow to pick up on the creativity of the costume venture. Maybe it was a bit too soon to catch on. No worries “Gumby man and dog recreation,” we’ve got your back.

4. TLC

This trio take the trophy for perfection- right down to the stitches of their clothes and those effortless poses. This TLC costume was bad in all the right ways.

5. The Plastics

Mean girls costumes will never lose their charm: these three girls prove that with the iconic pink ensembles. From the look like outfits to the ‘burn book,’ these “Plastics” were on-point.

6. Amazon Prime

Amazon Prime. Talk about original. It takes a special kind of Halloween love her to reach this level of genius.

 

7. Severed Head

Severed Head

There have been a lot of tutorials for ‘severed head’ Halloween make-up, but this mom takes it a step further and transforms into “a severed head in the freezer.” If you weren’t already feeling boring and basic from this list, let that feeling sink in now.

8. Romy and Michelle

Romy and Michelle. It may not be original but it’s definitely a chronic. The dynamic duo was brought to life flawlessly.

9. Samsung Galaxy

Samsung

Nowadays, there are really no limitations to creativity or originality of Halloween costumes. There’s always that one costume that makes you want to simultaneously slap your forehead and clap your hands in appreciation.  A burnt Samsung Galaxy phone is the complete embodiment of jaw-dropping and “no they didn’t” kind of costume.

10. Bette Midler as Winifred

Bette Midler

Most people wouldn’t be able to pull off dressing as themselves for Halloween. It’s who you are the other 364 days of the year, so where’s the fun in that? Bette Midler as her character in Hocus Pocus is, and will always be, the exception to this rule. After all, who would have the gall to mess with Winifred Sanderson?

11. Girl as her  ‘Grandmother’

Grandma

While its hard to find a costume that hasn’t been done before, there are few who brave the unique, often misunderstood costumes. It might not be considered ‘cool’ to dress up as your grandmother, but that didn’t stop this young girl. What better way to say ‘I love you’ than dressing up as your favorite family member?

Mean Girls: It’s still totally fetch!

October 3rd is just around the corner and it’s been 12 years since the movie Mean Girls was released. In honor of the 12th anniversary, why not revisit 8 famous quotes from movie.If you haven’t heard about Mean Girls then where have you been? The teen movie was one of the most popular in the 21st century, written by Saturday Night Live cast member Tina Fey. It  is based on drama of four high school students in the most popular clique in school. Characters in the movie were played by the famous childhood actors Lindsey Lohan, Rachel McAdams, Lacey Chabert, and Amanda Seyfried.  If you haven’t seen the movie I recommend you go watch it, It’ll definitely give you a laugh.

This is one of the most famous quotes from the whole entire movie. And ever since social media has started, people dedicate October 3rd to post something related to this scene. Aaron Samuels, one of the cutest guys at the school, asks in class “what day is it?” to the new girl, Cady who then in return said “It’s October 3rd!” Cady’s major crush on Aaron develops from this point on of course! Even though most of the time it doesn’t happen, many high school girls wish for an interaction something like this with their crush. However it’s not bad to daydream or just live vicariously through the movie for it.

 

“Fetch”is a word used throughout the movie. In Mean Girls, it is used in the way of a teenage girl describing how much they loved the new clothes they bought. Urban dictionary says that “fetch” is a slang word to replace cool and awesome. I know the word seems totally ridiculous. But I’m not going to lie, I’ve used fetch before in my vocabulary. What can I say I’m a Mean Girls fan at heart!

This quote always makes me laugh because Karen, one of the mean girls, is actually confused by the fact that Cady is from Africa. Cady was born in Africa, and despite Cady’s skin color, Karen should know that there are white people in Africa as well. As you can see, Karen is a really ditzy character in the movie. But that’s what makes Karen, she always has something to say that just cracks you up.

I love this quote from the movie because so many girls can relate to it. I’ve said this quote multiple times with my friends because I’m always the driver when we go somewhere. And we all know sometimes friends can take forever to get in the car. So I can relate! (Be honest, how many of you can relate to this quote? If you can, comment down below and let us know your favorite real-life instance of this quote!)

I’m going to be honest right now, I own a shirt with this quote on it and I’m proud of it. This quote is so iconic you can find it on shirts, journals, room décor, backpacks, and so much more. Since the movie came out in 2004, the trend and this quote has not faded away. But what is even more iconic is that I could recite the this quote in a random place and several people would know what I’m talking about. Even those who haven’t seen the movie know or have heard this iconic quote!

This quote is said by Damien in the beginning of the movie when he is explaining to Cady who the most popular girls are at school. I believe that people should use this quote more often to explain to people who the mean/popular girls are at their school. It is a really accurate explanation. If someone is compared to the plastics from “Mean Girls” then they definitely are a mean girl.

So I mentioned that this movie has tons of iconic quotes well here’s another one that’s famous from this movie. This quote takes place in the heart of the plot, so no spoilers from me! But people love this quote so much that I’ve seen a ton of people recreate the same look that Damien had when he recites the quote.

Just like the quote “We wear pink, On Wednesdays,” this quote is just as iconic. This quote literally sums up how most popular people are really like. I own a beanie with this quote on it. This is another on you see everywhere as well. Tons of popular stores sell items with this quote on it such as Brandy Melville and Urban Outfitters.
