Each year we are introduced to a host of very in-the-moment costumes. Who can forget the Sarah Palin costumes of 2008 or last year’s parade of Orange is the New Black character costumes? 2015 appears to be a good year for topical humor halloween costumes, many of which were born right here on the internet.

If we’re talking about being on trend, we can’t really have a 2015 Halloween without a Donald Trump costume. And apparently, even the Donald can be transformed into a suggestive costume complete with shorty-shorts, a red tie, a tiny jacket, and a pair of complimentary panties for some reason?
If you're a Star Wars fan, the reboot of the movie this year brings renewed interest in the francise. Dress up like Yoda or Dearth Vader, or of course Luke Skywalker or Princess Leia and relive your youth.
At this point in 2015, you’ve probably become well acquainted with the ‘Pizza Rat” video that has gone viral on YouTube. (And if you haven’t, you should probably check it out right away). The video shows a New York subway rat heroically carrying a slice of pizza down some stairs. I know that doesn’t sound very sexy, but in true Halloween trend fashion costume designers have found a way to sex it up with a revealing rat dress featuring pizza pockets.
Mashable reports about ‘the dress’ costume that is making it’s way on Halloween goers this year. For just $46.95 you can start up the old debate at any Halloween party: “It’s white and gold!” Soon followed by a, “NO! IT’S BLUE AND BLACK!” The costume itself is a dress that is half white and gold and half blue and black. But apparently the actual dress is on sale if you want to be even more authentic to the dress debate.
Since we are all Star Wars fans here at our house, anything Star Wars would be the preferred costume :) As for the Donald Trump costume..."complimentary panties?" WHY? The Dress costume is at least creative in a sense. It just looks to fit like a second skin so I'm out on that one, too.
I am not caring for these costumes as much as I would a costume that had a little humor behind the design. My granddaughter already has her costume and she is going as a girl clown.
I think some of the costumes this year are a bit more clever which is a pleasant surprise. I haven't picked out my costume but would like to go Disney-themed with others! We may do The Little Mermaid so I can be Ursula and my twins can be the Eels!
These new costumes are ridiculous! How is a rat pizza sexy???
a Renaissance family of Royalty. My 4 year old decided on our theme.
Too many sexy costumes. I like funny ones, and usually just make them myself.
Of the above I like pizza rat, funny and cute. For myself I usually have a general idea then see what I can pull off on the day. Would always rather make than buy a cheap costume.
I love creative costumes! Love the Donald Trump one. My family is not dressing up this year.
Honestly, I think it's all funny. If somebody wants to choose to wear a sexy Halloween costume, by all means, go for it. Yes I think more costumes should be made that aren't sexy but if you don't like the sexy ones, don't buy them. I like the black/blue dress, it's funny & a conversation starter. The sexy trump is funny because we all know The Donald is far from sexy. Ha!
These costumes are hideous!
I agree with others about the sexy costumes. Not real sure how that started. I prefer traditional ,witches,ghosts,goblins ,vampires
I miss the old days of genuine costumes. When I was little I dressed up like Cindy Lauper. Nothing was bought except for the hair dye. Costumes have taken a turn more to making fun of people or being silly. If that's your fancy, that's fine, but I like traditional costumes that are cute for kids, frightening for adults.
The Pizza Rat & "The Dress" costumes made me laugh, but the "sexy" Trump costume is cringe inducing. Haven't got my own costume for this year yet, but totally bought one for my cats!
I'm not impressed by any of these costume ideas! And they throw sex into everything now a days. what has happened to us?
The mouse eating pizza costume - do we need that? We are going with a super hero-theme this year. Our 3 yo boy will be Batman and 6 yo daughter is going as Batgirl. So looking forward to Halloween.
