YouTube streaming star CouRage didn’t hit rock bottom with this awesome throwback to one of Dwayne Johnson’s freshest looks. Sporting some spicy 80’s drip, it’s all brought together by the essential element: the fanny pack.

One of the most influential TikTok users in the world, Cole Chase Hudson aka Lil Huddy wasn’t clowning around this year. Turning himself into the “Clown Prince of Gotham,” Lil Huddy’s Joker costume from The Dark Knight is a fantastic recreation of the late Heath Ledger’s aesthetic in the oscar-winning role.

Lil Nas X
Montero superstar Lil Nas X went hard this Halloween, bringing some excellent production value to not one but two costumes.
With the Philosopher’s Stone turning 20 this year, it feels fitting to see the rapper transform into Voldermort himself. However, in a surprising move, Lil Nas X brought his fans back to a simpler time of nostalgia, by referencing Ned’s Declassified School Survival Guide.

It wouldn’t be a true Jake Paul appearance if the YouTuber-turned-boxer didn’t spark some sort of controversy. Hitting back at UFC president Dana White following a verbal beatdown surrounding former fighter Claressa Shields, Paul decided to take aim at White directly with this daring re-creation of an iconic MMA photo.
Those are just a few of our favorites this year, and if anymore blow our mind, we’ll be sure to give them a nod of appreciation.
