                    Adding a candy bag inside and telling people to put the candy in the neck opening would cause this costume to be even more unforgettable.

                          Any costume that incorporates balloons automatically makes you the coolest guy at the party. Just don’t add too many!

                                If Wilson was originally this cute, no one would ever allow him to float away.

                                    The joker is both timeless and terrifying. And what guy doesn’t want to wear smeared lipstick?

                                      Do you have trouble deciding what to be for Halloween? Maybe it’s time to just embrace that!

                                        Becoming a timeless time lord is as simple as putting on a brown pin-stripped suit and glasses. Don’t forget your sonic screwdriver!

                                          This is most likely the cleanest costume you will encounter.

                                          6. Despicable Me Minion

                                            Everyone loves a minion! And the best part is that no one expects you to be articulate!

                                              Embrace your inner listless teen. Just don’t crack a smile!

                                                Do you already know everything? Then choose a costume that allows you to call other people idiots and still stay in character.

                                                  With this costume, you can’t wait for the sun to set to show off your iridescent style.

                                                    A trip to the hardware store for paint samples is all that’s needed for a literal interpretation of this steamy novel.

                                                      This is a great dual-purpose costume. Everyone wants to know, “What does the fox say?” If you hold onto the globe, your the Mozilla Firefox. If you drop the ball, you’re still a fox.

                                                            Don’t lose your head! And always remember to take it home at the end of the night.

                                                              Because you still want to bring out your inner kid!

                                                              1. Wrecking Ball

We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

                                                                                                                                                        On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.
