Trending Halloween Costumes: Ghosts, Goblins and Giraffes?


In honor of my favorite holiday, I’ve decided to honor some creative Halloween costumes inspired not by the beasts in nightmares,  but the counting sheep and fairytale creatures in your dreams.

Halloween is all about finding the scariest, most creative costumes–but there’s only so many substances you can use as fake blood. A more-recent trend in costumes is the inspiration of creating a costume based on animals. I, myself was a crab this Halloween. Why? Because who wouldn’t want to be a crab?

Unless your friends are awesome and host costume parties year-round, it’s too late to create the perfect animal costume this year–but below are some awesome online-ideas. Halloween brings out the creativity in all of us, so give it a shot next year and create your costume, too! It makes for a good time and doesn’t bruise a wallet’s ego as much as those pre-made costumes.
