The Dress That Broke The Internet Is A Halloween Costume Now, Plus 4 Other 2015 Viral Pop Culture Memes You Can Dress Up As
'Tis the season for hunting for witty and culturally relevant costumes to wear this Halloween, and 2015 gave us some priceless pop culture material to work with — but if you are gonna dress up like anything this year, it might as well be The Dress. Yup, The Dress is a Halloween costume now, just in case you want to relive the aftermath of broken friendships and a broken Internet The Dress left in its poorly white-balanced wake.
In case you don't remember The Dress (or maybe you just decided to push that chaos out of your mind once and for all), allow me to recap: On the afternoon of Feb. 26, Twitter basically had a full-fledged meltdown when a woman posted a photo of a dress that either appeared to be white and gold, or blue and black, depending on who you asked. Now, with this costume, things will get totally meta when nobody can figure out the color of your dress in your friends' intoxicated Instagram pics, which is basically the point of Halloween.
So how does the Halloween Dress live up to The Dress, IRL? Regardless if you were team white and gold or blue and black, this costume caters to both sides of the debate. Available on Yandy.com for $46.95, the costume looks like this:
Of course, if The Dress isn't really your style (see what I did there?), there are other meme-worthy moments from 2015 you can channel this Halloween. From the triumph of #LoveWins to the persistence of Pizza Rat, 2015 provided a steady stream of moments that we've celebrated, belabored, and lampooned. But, just like the spirits that mingle with the living on All Hallows' Eve (insert spooky organ music), it's only appropriate on Halloween to resurrect some of our favorites in the form of costumes.
2015 was a year for the every-man-and-woman. We saw ourselves in the gloriously absent-minded Left Shark. Ruth Notorious RBG Ginsburg is having a renaissance at 82-years-young. Here's how you too can be totally viral this Halloween.
