Halloween is pretty much our favorite holiday because we can be anyone we want to be for a night. This year has provided plenty of inspiration for who that person can be with all of its wild and wonderful pop culture moments. To help you prep for the most ghoulish night of the season, here are a few costume ideas that will get you Halloween-ready, and totally timely.

Beyoncé’s Lemonade
Unless you were under a rock in 2016, you know that Beyoncé unleashed upon the world a musical, cinematic and revenge-filled masterpiece by the name of Lemonade. Do yourself a favor and channel Bey for a night.


José Andrés
Ever wanted to walk in a 2-Star Michelin chef’s shoes? Now is your chance. Grab the finest Jamón ibérico, add a little Spanish spice, and into the night you go.

Snapchat Filters
The real star of 2016 wasn’t necessarily a person, but rather the filters we use to make us into enhanced versions of ourselves. You can create some pretty amazing DIY looks without much effort.

Grab your girl squad and do what you’ve always wanted to do: rid your city of ghosts while wearing a onesie.


The Candidates
This election season has been fraught, dividing the country. The only antidote is humor. Put on your best Donald wig or elevated pantsuit and at least have a little fun with the state of our democracy.
