Though dressing as a zombie seems like a copout, the spooky story about Rudy Eugene, the “zombie” from Miami who ripped the face off of homeless man Ronald Poppo, made people question whether or not zombies were actually real.
After Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney announced that he wants to defund PBS, leaving its hit-show “Sesame Street” in the dust, Big Bird costumes are suddenly looking popular hits this year.
Snoop Dogg announced that he decided to change his name to Snoop Lion after a Rastafarian priest told him that he had the soul of a lion, not one of a dog. Needless to say, anyone who is able to pull off a Snoop Lion costume will definitely get some chuckles.
“Fifty Shades of Grey” erupted in 2012 and it has been all women can talk about. Even men have been spotted reading the “love story with a kink.” Fans frantically check the Internet to see if anyone has been cast in the film adaptation of the movie, but why not dress up as the characters themselves this Halloween?
Kristen Stewart cheated on Robert Pattinson is probably the biggest celebrity scandal to explode in 2012. After she was caught cheating on her “Twilight” costar she was dubbed a “trampire” by comedian Will Ferrell. This costume would be a little more difficult to portray, but would be unique nonetheless.
Slain rapper Tupac Shakur “came back to life” when he performed on stage at “Coachella” as a hologram. Try to go for a ghost Tupac to pull off the hologram look.
The vampire series “True Blood” went in a different direction during their 2012 season, bringing Goddess Lilith into their show. She was always shown naked, with her hair slicked back, covered in blood and of course having fangs.
Lady Gaga has been in the news lately because of her 25-pound recent weight gain. She was photographed at a concert in the Netherlands looking less-than desirable in skin-tight clothes.
“Toddlers and Tiaras” Alana Thompson along with the rest of her family was given a reality television show on TLC called “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.” Many people would admit that they watched the show for the sheer fact that they couldn’t look away. For those who don’t think they can put off being “Honey Boo Boo,” don’t worry, you can always go for the look of “coupon queen” June Thompson.
Hulk Hogan made headlines again when it was revealed that he had made a sex tape with his friend’s ex-wife Heather Clem. According to sources, Clem is embarrassed by the homemade porno not just because she is having sex on film, but because of how “corny” a lover Hulk Hogan was when they were intimate.
The “Hunger Games” books have been out for some time, but the “Hunger Games” movie came out after last Halloween. The series heroine Katniss Everdeen made side braids and archery popular; it makes for a simple, recognizable costume.
Charlize Theron did a phenomenal job playing villainess Ravenna in Rupert Sanders “Snow White and the Huntsman.” She brought a new dynamic to one of the cruelest queens in Disney history.
