Snapchat's puppy filter is adorable and it also makes for an ideal Halloween costume – cheap and super easy to put together. If you're feeling crafty, you can make your own dog ears and nose using felt and a headband. Or, save yourself the hassle and just use the downloadable version of the dog filter here or here. Just print it (you may need to play around with the sizing) and adhere the props to your face. Make sure to tape the tongue to a BBQ skewer or popsicle stick so that you can easily hold it up while posing for pictures.
Rainbow Vomit Filter
Replicating this classic Snapchat filter is actually easier and quicker than you might think. All you have to do is throw on a white tank and some heavy silver eyeliner. Then use several colors of face paint to draw a rainbow down your neck and onto your shirt. As long as you follow the Roy G. Biv order, it's pretty simple. But just in case you find yourself needing more specific instructions, check out the YouTube video below:

This flower crown look is not only lovely, it's also very easy to recreate. Grab some varied fake flowers from a craft store to make your own — or if you're super pressed for time, just buy one, like this Floral Headwrap for $4.90 at Forever 21. Top off with some glow-y, ethereal makeup, and voila, you're done.
You only need a handful items to make Snapchat's adorable bear filter come to life.
