Bring your social media self into the real world for one night only by dressing as a Snapchat filter IRL. From unicorns to puppies to butterflies to deers, these DIY costume ideas are super simple, and lots of fun to put together.

If you plan to dress up as a Snapchat filter, you'll definitely be in good company. In 2016 the popularity of Snapchat inspired Halloween costumes rose 1,500 percent from 2015, according to ABC News. The other big Halloween trend includes a departure from guts and gore and a move toward pop culture costumes.
"Snapchat costumes fit into both of these trend categories, as they're a fun way for people to try something new in terms of glammed-up makeup but also feel very relevant and of-the-moment with their costume," Larkin Brown, a researcher for Pinterest, told ABC News.
