Top Ten Halloween costume predictions for 2013!
By The Atlanta Banana, October 2013
The top ten Halloween costume predictions for 2013 include ideas for both men and women. According to an Oct. 7 Paste report, the top ten Halloween costume ideas for this year will likely leave you laughing.
While some of these top ten Halloween costume 2013 picks are available online for a price, others you will have to be more creative with. Of course, the creative costume ideas will actually allow you to possibly save money and get a good deal while donning a cute and memorable costume this Halloween season.
The number 10 costume is the “Red Equal Sign”
Rememebr when the Human Rights Campaign's symbol for equality took over your social networks? Bring it back with a simple red and pink outfit for Halloween.
The number 9 costume is “Stefon”
2013 marked Bill Hader's exit from "Saturday Night Live" and with him went our favorite "Weekend Update" correspondent. Get the look by layering Ed Hardy Tees, wearing silver rings on both hands and constantly acting like you can't believe what you just said.
The number 8 costume is "What Does The Fox Say?" .
The most entertaining music video of 2013 has nothing to do with licking hammers or riding a wrecking ball but everything to do with dressing up like a fox who loves to dance.
The number 7 costume is Pope Francis.
Perhaps one of the most popular Catholic Popes in years, you can start with your traditional Pope garb, but finish with an LGBTQ-friendly twist.
The number 6 costume is Paula Deen the Racist.
Once you've got your grey wig, flowy blouse and Southern drawl down, it's up to you to decide how much social commentary you want to add.
The number 5 costume is Miley Cyrus at the 2013 VMAs.
There are several options to achieve this look. One is the infamous "Twerk" costume, which retailers can't seem to keep on shelves long enough, so don't expect to get a great deal on this look. You can get this look for less by donning a "Twerk" t-shirt and letting everybody's imagination fill in the rest.
Number 4 on the list is "Breaking Bad's" Walter White.
This costume actually should not set you back too much. You simply need a button down shirt, brown leather jacket, some spectacles, a beard, and the hat. Many of these things could be found in your own closet, borrowed, or purchased on the cheap at thrift stores.
At number 3, you will find Jamie Lannister from "Game of Thrones."
The most important element of this costume is the missing hand, which will be somewhat difficult to recreate, but if you are imaginative you should be able to figure out a way to lose your hand for the night. This is another costume that has the potential to be affordable as long as you are lucky in your thrift shop finds.
The number 2 hottest 2013 Halloween costume is Robin Thicke and his naked girls.
Interestingly, if you have an old Beetle Juice costume laying around, you can reuse this to become Thicke for 2013. Other ways to become this hot 2013 figure are to wear a snazzy suit with an unbuttoned shirt, aviator sunglasses, and surround yourself with nearly nude women who attend to your every need. Who wouldn't enjoy dressing up like Robin Thicke? (Hint, combine this with the Miley Cyrus "Twerk" costume to have a fun couple's costume this season).
Finally, the number 1 (and funniest) hot Halloween costume for 2013 is pregnant Kim Kardashian.
You likely remember Kim's unfortunate floral couch inspired Met Gala dress. This should be quite easy to recreate using thrift shop items, so you can have a funny costume on the cheap this Halloween.
There you have it, the top ten Halloween costume prediction for 2013. Which costume are you going to dress up as this year? Trick or treat!
