There are plenty of opportunities to dress as your favorite meme this year. From Sorry to This Man to Kombucha Girl, here are 12 gloriously internet-worthy meme costumes that’ll earn you some greatly coveted pop culture points at your next Halloween party or costume party you attend.
1. Area 51
This is the meme that made modern history. Gather your friends and get ready to storm Area 51 to save some aliens from the treachery of the U.S. government. The meme is a prime opportunity for group meme costumes with numerous roles to fill. You need aliens, guards, and of course, a couple of Naruto runners going full speed to uncover whatever secrets the military base is keeping. It’s time to get intergalactic. They can’t stop you all.
2. Ight Imma Head Out
Things just wouldn’t feel right without a SpongeBob meme in the mix. Do you have a white shirt, brown pants and a red tie? Add a TV remote, and you’ve got the basics. You get bonus points for yellow face paint with holes drawn on and a big red chair in the background. This is one of the unstoppable meme costumes that is a golden opportunity for a cheap-but-totally-Instagramable Halloween photo op before you “head out” to the night’s festivities.
3. Fat Thor
Fat Thor was one of the many sensations to come out of Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame. It’s the same Thor, only a few pounds heavier from too much beer on the couch while playing video games. Though to be fair, you get to cope however you please when a genocidal sack of purple gelatin with a colorful glove wrecks your whole universe. Beer gut or no beer gut, Thor is still just as powerful, just as cool, and just as godly.
4. I Just Took A DNA Test
It turns out this meme is a 100-percent solid costume idea. Born out of the lyrics to Lizzo’s number one smash hit, Truth Hurts, the DNA Test meme is conveniently versatile and allows you to mold your costume into whatever you want. Include the lyrics anywhere, be it a shirt, hat, or via last-minute sharpie job, and you likely have one of the best killer meme costumes.
