The Brief: We've compiled a list of the 11 most 2019 Halloween meme costumes from Peppa Pig to VSCO girls to 30-50 feral hogs.
There’s no denying it. Spoopy szn is here. As Halloween approaches, it’s time to start assembling your costume (or costumes if Halloweekend is a multi-day celebration for you). Yes, you could dust off last year’s costume or throw on a sassy t-shirt that says “this is my costume,” or you could put in a little more effort into one of these topical and hilarious 2019 meme Halloween costumes.
1. VSCO Girl / VSCO Boy
If you’re already a VSCO girl or VSCO boy, just put on your favorite scrunchies, slip on your Birkenstocks, and you’re good to go. If you’re new to the VSCO look, all you need are a few accessories and you’ll be saving the turtles and sksksking all Halloween long.
What To Wear: Check out our How To Be A VSCO girl guide for a breakdown of where to get everything required for a full VSCO getup.
2. A Clown
Although there haven’t been too many creepy clown sightings this year, clowns have recently invaded the pop culture landscape. Go as It, The Joker, a Juggalo, a TikTok lipstick clown, or a “clown” as in someone who has done something foolish.
What To Wear: Go for a traditional clown costume, or get creative with your own clown makeup and goofy clothes. If you’re really short on time, you can pull together a TikTok lipstick clown look in just a few seconds.
3. Area 51 Kyles And Aliens
Maybe you wanted to storm Area 51 but couldn’t make it out to the middle of the desert. Honor the brave 75-or-so souls who showed up at the gate to Area 51 on September 20 by dressing up as a Kyle, an alien, or both.
What To Wear: Check out this all-in-one Kyle/alien costume or team up with a friend to be an Area 51 alien and a brave Kyle (shirt+hat+Monster energy drink) who punched a hole in some drywall and Naruto-ran across Nevada to rescue him.
6. 30-50 Feral Hogs
Perfect costume for trick-or-treating as you can go in someone’s yard, perhaps even while their small kids play (be sure to watch out for protective parents). Just get 29-49 of your closest friends to go hog wild with you and you’re all set.
What To Wear: Start with a simple pig costume and feel free to beef it up with tusks, torn clothing, and anything else you deem to be feral hog-like.
7. Ultra Instinct Shaggy
Every Halloween, you’re bound to see at least one Scooby-Doo group costume, but including an Ultra Instinct Shaggy in that lineup would make the whole scooby gang all the more legit.
8. Fancy Winnie The Pooh
9. Peppa Pig
It’s been a huge year for Peppa Pig. She dropped her bop-filled debut album, solidified her status as an LGBTQ+ icon, inspired a TikTok meme, stirred up rumors about her height, kept up her TV series, and starred in a feature film. Embody this amazing creature with a Peppa Pig pop star costume.
10. Me And The Boys
The popular Me And The Boys Reddit meme actually comes from an image of Spider-Man villains from a 1967 television series. You and the boys can dress up as Green Goblin, Rhino, Electro, and Vulture for a fun group costume.
What To Wear: Electro and Vulture costume sets can be found on Amazon. A rhinoceros onesie will do for Rhino and a vintage Green Goblin costume can be made out of a green bodysuit, red gloves, a red hat, red socks, red shorts, and a red t-shirt.
11. White Claw
Not only will partygoers be drinking sparkling seltzer this Halloween, but there are also bound to be quite a few people dressed up as the most widely-memed beverage of the year.
What To Wear: Get crafty with some cardboard or just wear this White Claw t-shirt dress.
If these costumes aren’t your jam, consider dressing up as a character from Endgame, Game Of Thrones, Stranger Things, or Euphoria. You could also go as your favorite influencer, a doot doot skeleton, a baby (as in I’m baby), Big Chungus, Hot Girl Summer, Mike and Sulley, or one of many other 2o19 meme Haloween costumes. Have a safe, fun, and spoopy Halloween!
