We are only a few days in to October 2021 but we are absolutely buzzing about some of the top pop culture Halloween costume ideas that have been sweeping across the internet with the top one being the oddest one this year.
12. Ted Lasso
The optimistic/comedy soccer Apple + series starring everyone’s favorite coach has found a way to make its fans laugh as hard as they cry with every episode. So its no wonder why the coach starts off this year as the one of the most buzziest costume ideas of 2021.
- Among Us
Like Fortnite before it, Among Us is one of this popular video games your nieces and nephews are obsessed with and they can literally bore you to tears about the ins and outs of it. It is also a popular Halloween idea for kids and tween to show how hip they are to follow gamers. But be wary of the one kid who dresses up as the imposter.
For the geeky Marvel loving couple, WandaVision is still a fond memory in the hearts of fans. So if you and your significant other want to do a couples costume but still show off your geeky side, go with the Scarlet Witch and her sex-bot, Vision.
9. Black Widow & Yelena
Sticking with Marvel, what better sister or girlfriends idea than Black Widow and her sister, Yelena. Empowered women is all the rage this Halloween, so why not Marvel’s two most deadly assassins.
8. Promising Young Woman – Cassie Nurse Outfit
Sticking with badass women, it’s tie to give the ol’ Harley Quinn costume a rest and slip into the sexy nurse outfit with a colorful wig and become the hellbent on revenge Cassie from Promising Young Woman.
7. Instagram Filter
Whether it’s hiding blemishes, fat, or cross eyes, the instagram filter helped create a false reality for its users while in quarantine. So why not make a costume out of it with a costume Instagram filter!
6. Reservation Dogs
Black suit. Tie. Vans. Maybe a black cowboy hat. This is the look of the kids from the new FX comedy series, Reservation Dogs. An easy costume for one of the best new shows of 2021.
5. Mabel from Only Murders In The Building
Selena Gomez’s Mabel has become the breakout star of Hulu’s Only Murders in the Building. Some young starlets would be intimidated working with comedic legends like Steve Martin and Martin Short, but Gomez holds her own. And the character of Mabel has a distinct style all her own.
Disney’s Cruella film presented fans with a fashion loving, dog hating, reinterpretation of the iconic animated villain. Her black and white hair and impeccable sense of fashion lends itself to multiple variations of ideas for a Cruella inspired costume.
3. Kendall and Kim At The Met Gala
Kim shocked the world at this year’s Met Gala with her ominous looking all black dress that cover her head to toe. You didn’t know if she was there for the event or there to haunt the building. It’s a unique costume idea. Whoever dresses up as Kendall here sadly gets the short end of the stick.
2. Sexy Bernie At The Inauguration
During the odd inauguration for our current President, Democrat Bernie Sanders sat in the cold covered up like an Eskimo with massive gloves, face mask, and a scowl. Now there is a variation of the costume called, “The Sexy Bernie.”
1. Cat Lawyer
Nothing summed up quarantine life like a zoom meeting gone wrong. Some people just aren’t technically savvy like this one lawyer who couldn’t take the cat filter off his zoom call. The perfect Halloween costume for one of the strangest years.
