This Halloween, prepare to see too many sexy costumes, too many guys in t-shirts with stupid sayings, a guy in a Green Lantern costume but will it be ironic? All I know is someone better figure out how to make Netflix a costume. Below are my picks for the best of the best.

>>Best Of LA: Where To Get Halloween Costumes

1. iPhones/Steve Jobs/Anything Apple

Okay, so these guys are wearing working iPhones. Bravo. For the rest of us, why not make a t-shirt with the iPhone face, dress up as genius Steve Jobs, don yourself with a bunch of plastic apples from Michael’s or just go as one big apple.

2. Princess Beatrice

Oh yes. There is a fantastic knockoff of the most ridiculous fascinator in the world.

3. Michael Jackson

4. Toddlers & Tiaras

5. Bridesmaids

If you don’t feel like working that hard on your costume, head to the back of your closet or Goodwill for tacky bridesmaids dresses. You must do this with a bunch of friends.

6. Amy Winehouse

7. Book of Mormon.

Get out your black slacks, a crisp white button up shirt, black tie, hair gel and a bright smile. Add a backpack and a helmet and you’re golden.

8. Flashdance

I know Footloose is the latest film buzzing, but I’m a sucker for Flashdance.

9. Royal Couple

The wedding has barely passed, but it’s kind of already feeling passe. Make them zombies. Zombies are the answer to everything. Or wrap a bunch of gauze dyed with tea around you and make them mummies!

10. Katy Perry/Nicki Minaj

I had Katy on my list last year, but this year, you can buy this everywhere.
If you have the guts to wear this costume, work it.
This blue wig could easily become Nicki Minaj with neon spandex.

11. Angry Birds

Everyone has the game on their phone. Everyone will attend a party with an Angry Birds character.
Someone please go as the slingshot.
