Cardi B

Who wouldn’t want to be the Bronx princess this year for Halloween? Although she provided many costume-worthy moments, this is one of my favorites. Finesse the day like Cardi B in this Fashion Nova Colorblock set ($22, Get yourself an oversized chain and a bucket hat and you’re good to go!


Who doesn’t love a good filter? With this costume, you’ll take originality to another level. Find a friend, clone your outfit and add a #nofilter sign to complete the look.

I don’t know where this kid came from, but his name has been a constant topic of conversation. Recreate Tekashi 69’s colorful persona with a rainbow wig from Target ($18.99, Target). You can’t complete the look without a few temporary tattoos ($18.69, Etsy) and rainbow grills ($24.95, Bino Hype Store). Throw on your most colorful, loudly annoying outfit and you’ll be Tekashi, reincarnated!


Ladies, ladies and more ladies! If you want to be the Sexy Nigerian Butterscotch, better known as Rotimi,  all you need is a nice face mask! The Aztec Secret Healing Clay ($10.95, Amazon) can help you execute the look while giving you a facial. Sounds like a win, win!


Squinting Woman

I mean… this meme was able to embody every questionable moment of 2018. As long as you don’t get tired of squatting and squinting, this costume will be an easy one.

Joanne the Scammer is my spirit animal honestly, truly. This getup requires minimal effort. With a disheveled blonde wig, an oversized fur coat, smeared red lipstick and ripped stockings, you’ve got yourself a scammer starter kit costume.

Social Media Influencer

You can’t scroll down your Instagram feed without seeing a fashion influencer. They’re either modeling their Fashion Nova fit, selling Flat Tummy Tea or showing off their waist trainers. If you want to spend your coins on an influencer ensemble, you can purchase on from Urban Outfitters ($59, Your best bet is to pull out a sports bra, a pair of spandex and a packet of tea.



Bad Gal Riri was recently spotted in Australia rocking a snakeskin mini dress, with a matching bucket hat and jacket. Copy the look with this snakeskin dress ($19, Target) and matching hat ($12.99, Amazon).

Tina Belcher

Tina Belcher from Bob’s Burger has been twerking her little behind all over social media. Now, you can join her! With a blue t-shirt, a pair of shorts and a black wig, you can get your awkward twerk-on as you trick-or-treat.
