The results are in! Google simply released a list of the most popular Halloween costumes this year (according to the most browsed costumes in Google Buying) and, if you guessed that Walter White/Heisenberg (among other “Breaking Bad” characters) and Miley Cyrus topped the list, then congratulations, you’re alive.
Some of the other individual top contenders for hottest Halloween costume of 2013 just may amaze you. On the list: the lovable green minions from “Despicable Me,” Daenerys Targaryen from “Game of Thrones,” the dude in the fox suit from the unbelievably popular viral video “What Does the Fox Say?
If you wish to be en vogue this All Hallow’s Eve (or if you’re simply too damn lazy to come up with an initial costume– hey, we feel you), we’ve assembled some fast suggestions for getting involved in character this year, without breaking the bank. And, for those who don’t wish to get puzzled with 15 other individual guys at the celebration, we have actually provided a couple of alternate tips.
If you’re going as Walter White/Heisenberg:
There are heaps of full costumes you can buy on the internet, however a lot of them will cost you. Do not desire to have to begin your own meth laboratory to pay for a costume? You can snag a green apron rather much anywhere, and for cheap.
Go as an additional lead character from a recently ended hit program. All you require to go as America’s favorite psychopath is yet an additional apron (thought this one should be black, and preferably made of rubber), a brown shirt and “bloody” knife.
If you’re going as Miley:
We’re not going to recommend you go “Wrecking Ball” Miley, though THAT would be an easy costume (simply go naked). If you’re not down with public nudity, the obvious selection is VMA Miley– complete with small bun “horns,” nude-colored bootie shorts (or routine shorts, if you’re modest) and bathing fit top (or tank top, if you’re modest), and a huge foam finger (grab one at a sports shop, or order one for economical on eBay).
Seriously, you’re visiting more Mileys shivering in their skivvies en path to bench this year than attractive kittens. Be initial– and remarkable– and go as Billy Ray Cyrus rather. All you should be dear old dad is a mullet wig, some kind of cowboy shirt, huge fake soul patch, and a guitar slung around your neck. Done and done.
If you’re going as Daft Punk:
Some of the more genuine trademark “space mask” helmets are going for upwards of $100 on websites like eBay and Etsy and, in our opinion, if you desire to go as a member of Daft Punk, you should do it. We discovered a ton of online tutorials for making your own helmet (people are odd) however most of them take an odd amount of commitment. Buy an artificial motorbike helmet from a kid’s toy store/costume shop and spray paint it gold or silver.
Go as another masked DJ: Deadmau5. His incognito style is simpler to reproduce (or at least mention). Either buy a full mouse mask or go the lazy course and purchase a pair of mouse ears (they have them at any costume store) and artificial microphone, throw on a well-fitting fit and skinny red tie, and you’re done. Always remember to bring the swagger. Incentive points if you walk around with a boombox playing Deadmau5 beats all night.
If you’re going as Daenerys Targaryen:
Again, you can buy a ready-to-wear costume on the internet, however they’re costly, and kind of cheesy. Instead, purchase a platinum blonde wig (bonus offer if you discover one with a braid), a Grecian-style dress (you can purchase one of these for relatively cheap at most costume stores), a pair of strappy sandals (most chicks most likely own some semblance of these currently) and– the crowning detail (no pun planned)– a stuffed dragon toy.
Go as an additional popular TELEVISION character– a zombie from “The Walking Dead.” Yeah, this is neither sexy nor quite, however zombie is a classic– and ridiculously easy– costume. Some face paint to make you look undead, bit of fake blood around the mouth, torn up garments, and you prepare to go.
