It’s that time of year again, when I anxiously realize I have no Halloween costume.
My costume will probably result from a frantic last-minute trip to Big Lots, as it usually does, but until that happens I’m consulting my Twitter feed for a 2012 zeitgeist of pop culture-riffed and fashion-oriented costume trends.
Top Halloween Costume Trends of 2012:
1. Honey Boo Boo in Glitz with Go-Go Juice
2. Honey Boo Boo in Casual Attire with Well-Timed Belly Flashes
3. Glitzy (just add a tiara.)
3.5. Glitzy & Honey Boo Boo as a couple’s theme
4. Gangnam Style
6. Choupette Lagerfeld
7. Anyone from Downton Abbey
I doubt this qualifies for the list, but I’m really really hoping to see Darth Vader Gotye this year:
And if I set aside enough time to hunt down the costume pieces, maybe I can hand out earrings instead of candy while sartorially saying, “these have always brought me luck:”

Or, how about going as a Halloween joke?
“For Halloween I’m dressing up as Person Who Says Hey The Second You Sign Into Any Kind Of Online Chat Service.”
“For Halloween I’m going as that feeling you get at a store when you try to refold a sweater properly & put it back on the shelf.”
Or…..yanno, maybe I’m over-thinking Halloween.
As @RobinMcCauley says, “They should change the name ‘Halloween’ to something scarier like ‘Someone Posted Something On Your Timeline’.”
