Finding the perfect Halloween costume can be a difficult task. You can make it easy on yourself by picking up a costume from the store, but if you want to stand out this year, think outside the box and come up with your own costume idea. Our favorite costumes are ones that are based on current pop culture figures or stories. We’ve seen countless Chilean miners, Sarah Palins, Justin Biebers and Britneys over the past few years.
