5 DIY Pop Culture Costumes For Halloween 2018 That’ll Have You Looking Relevant AF

I’m all for dressing in traditional Halloween garb you know, throwing on plastic furry ears and drawing whiskers with your eyeliner and BAM! Now you’re a cat! I find absolutely nothing wrong with classic costumes and, honestly, I appreciate any effort that someone puts into the spooky holiday. But there’s something about the people who go all out on their costumes that makes me want to stand up and applaud. It doesn’t even need to be a store bought outfit (in fact, I prefer the opposite) but it does have to have some sort of relevancy to it. Yup, I’m talking about creating DIY pop culture costumes for Halloween 2018, because we as a nation deserve to reflect on all of the notable moments from this past year and be filled with gratitude. The best way to do that? By making a costume that shows off just how ~in the know~ you really are.

So, do everyone a favor and skip the Halloween store this year. Work with what you’ve got in your closet, and whatever you’re missing, just ask a friend or family member (or buy it on the cheap online), and make yourself the most kickass costume that the year 2018 has ever seen. If you need any help completing your look, we’ve got you covered with some online stores where you can find the ultimate Halloween inspo. We got you, boo!

Add a gold chain (totally cool if it’s fake, because gold ain’t cheap), and there ya go. Effortless coolness isn’t included though, so you’ll have to really channel your favorite musical duo to pull off this ~lewk~. I have faith.
