It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and no, we’re not talking about Christmas. Halloween is around the corner, and while some of you may already have a costume for your pet and a unique one for yourself, others may be scrambling to find that perfect disguise for October 31st. When in doubt, we’ve found that timely pop culture Halloween costumes always make a splash, so we rounded up some of our favorites below.

Several of this year’s biggest pop culture moments include Joaquin Phoenix playing the Joker, Katy Perry and Taylor Swift dressing up as a Happy Meal (a.k.a. a giant burger and fries) in Tay’s “You Need To Calm Down” music video, and Daenerys Targaryen’s Starbucks cup that was seen by all in a Game of Thrones episode. We’re just getting started, so take a seat and scroll through our list of pop culture Halloween costumes for 2019.

The Joker


Shop it! $24.00-$138.99, amazon.com.

The Joker has undeniably been one of the most talked-about movies of 2019, so this costume is destined to be a hit. The description on Amazon deems this getup a men’s costume, but we say that anybody can rock a suit.

Daenerys Targaryen


Shop it! $39.99-$49.99, amazon.com.

Order a Starbucks drink and make sure to write out Dany’s full name on it to complete the look: Daenerys of the House Targaryen, the First of Her Name, The Unburnt, Queen of the Andals, the Rhoynar and the First Men, Queen of Meereen, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Protector of the Realm, Lady Regent of the Seven Kingdoms, Breaker of Chains and Mother of Dragons. Easy!

A Happy Meal


Shop it! $39.99, amazon.com.

Reenact Taylor and Katy’s end-of-feud-moment by hugging your friend for long periods of time through the night. This is also the perfect excuse to go eat an actual Happy Meal.

Elton John “Rocketman” costume


Shop it! $69.99, amazon.com.

We’ll never turn down the chance to wear this many sequins, especially when the sequin king himself Elton John’s name is written on the back of this jersey. Just be prepared to have “Rocketman” stuck in your head all night long.

Captain Marvel


Shop it! $54.99, amazon.com.

Avengers: Endgame is one of the hottest movies of the 2019, and this costume will be one of the most popular costumes of the night. Get ready to strike this pose for a whole lot of pictures on Halloween.

Us doppelgängers

If you want a scary Halloween costume this year, the evil doppelgängers from Jordan Peele’s horror film Us will do the trick. Top off the look with these creepy scissors.

Kombucha Girl


Shop it! $33.99, amazon.com.

Who could forget the viral video of Brittany Tomlinson’s reaction to drinking kombucha? Throw on this sweatshirt, buy a can of kombucha, and you’re good to go. Bonus: You might be more comfortable than anyone else at your Halloween party.

Booksmart Boiler Suits
