If Halloween reflects the year we've had, we're in serious trouble.
Whether it's Joe Exotic, murder hornets, presidential candidates, dumpster fires, or a deadly virus, everything that characterizes 2020 is about to come together on Halloween. Check out these somewhat-iffy 2020-themed Halloween costumes.
1. Joe Exotic, the Tiger King
Nothing says Halloween 2020 like Joe Exotic. Here's how we would assemble a Joe Exotic costume.
2. Sexy College Scandal Mom / Prison Inmate
*cough* Lori Loughlin *cough*
Yandy's exclusive "Mom of the Year" College Scandal Inmate Costume is a guaranteed freak show.

3. 2020 Presidential Candidates
No matter who wins the election, he'll be the oldest president in the history of the U.S. Maybe it's time to start looking away from the Boomer generation for the 2024 election? Just a thought.
Find your inflatable walker here.
For the Karen costume, we've come up with a couple of options. If you want a tamer version, simply pair this wig:
Or, you can live dangerously and channel the most evil Karen you can imagine, here.
Yeah, I know. But we had to. Find it here.
6. CDC Worker in Hazmat Suit
I know, I know. The coronavirus isn't funny. But it is scary. And what better way to sum up the year we've had than with a Hazmat costume? Plus (and hear me out), you'll be the safest person at any party or gathering you may attend. Win-win.
7. Quarantine Couch Potato
There's nothing as creepy as the-typical-quarantined-American-adult-circa-April-2020. We all want to forget what we looked like. But Walmart (most fittingly) has brought the memory to life:
8. The COVID-19 Test
So there's no road map for this one. Nobody's yet developed a Halloween costume depicting the dreaded COVID-19 test. But if you can think outside the box and somehow make yourself look like a cotton swab (bonus points for a test tube), you'll be well on your way to being one of the most intimidating characters this Halloween.
9. Carole Baskin
I love that the Amazon description of this blonde wig and flower crown is simply "Adult Women's Activist of Big Cats Wig With Flower Crown." But say no more. We all know who you mean.
Pair it with a pink animal print blouse like this one, and you'll be askin' for a Baskin.
10. Dumpster Fire
I mean, guys ... We literally had dumpsters on fire this summer.
8. Murder Hornet
For the over-achiever, this murder hornet costume will run you over $1,100. But it's intense. Just like murder hornets. 🤷♀️
9. The Work-From-Homer
This one's easy. How did you dress for your Zoom meetings during the lockdown? Boxers with a dress shirt? Pajama pants with a suit coat? Just—for the kids' sake—at least keep it decent.

10. Corona in a Cape
Such a perfect metaphor.
Also, this: (but with more social distancing)

11. Naked Man
This one is a frickin' gem.
I went to Spirit Halloween's Website and this is the only 'Men's' costume labeled "sexy". Men...I have some news for you pic.twitter.com/oA42eHH9lh— Trillian Zee (@Trillian_Zee) September 7, 2020
12. Homeless Prince Harry and Meghan
Just a little nod to Harry and Meghan's exit from the Royal Family and subsequent country-hopping ... And this satirical piece from The Onion is hilarious.

Find your Harry and Meghan masks here. The homeless-looking clothing is up to you.
13. Falling Stock Market
Red duct tape? Check. Easy-peasy.
14. Clorox and Friends
Clorox is joined by its mortal frenemies Bio-Hazard Waste and Bacteria. But Clorox is the real MVP this year. Here's how to make it.
15. Hand Sanitizer
