Halloween is just around the corner and time is winding down to decide on a costume. You can always go with the classic costumes (witches, ghosts, pirates,etc), but 2012 had some pretty crazy characters to add to that list. Here are some of our top choices for pop culture costumes:

Tanning Mom: You guys remember this story right? Patricia Krentcil was arrested for child endangerment after allegedly taking her six-year-old daughter to a tanning salon. People freaked out about that, but then they freaked out even more when they actually saw the mom. But she’s not addicted to tanning, guys. Nope.

Olympians: The 2012 London Olympics were the biggest events of the summer. Why not remind people of just how awesome America (or any other country) is? And, don’t forget, we have some Olympic gold medalists appearing on several of our shows pretty soon.

Psy – Gangnam Style: This song and dance is sweeping nation. This way, you’ll have an excuse for doing the dance all day. What else do we need to say besides, “Heyyyyy, sexy lady!”

iPhone 5/ Galaxy SIII: The iPhone 5 has been the talk of the town lately. For Halloween, you can be different, but pretty much the same. And if you’re a couple, why not dress up as the Samsung Galaxy SIII and fight it out to see which one’s really better.

The Hunger Games: There’s a lot of different characters to choose from. May the costume odds be ever in your favor.

Fifty Shades of Grey: It’s got the same kind of appeal as Twilight and The Hunger Games, but for a slightly more mature audience. Your imagination can go pretty far here.

Felix Baumgartner: He’s part daredevil, part astronaut. The guy jumped from space and landed on his feet! If that doesn’t deserve a Halloween costume tribute, I don’t know what does.
