Cookie from 'Empire' – You'll need your fiercest party dress, perfect makeup, silky brown locks (yours or purchased) and maybe a hat to complete this look. Wear cheetah prints and drop a couple of "Boo Boo Kitty" disses and people will be calling you "Cookie" in no time. Look through the gallery for more topical costume ideas.
Tom Brady – Poor, persecuted quarterback Tom Brady is an easy guy to mimic this Halloween if you've got a Patriots jersey lying around. Just paint a dimple in your chin and carry around a flattened football to complete the Deflategate look. Bonus points for his silly hat.
Abby Wambach – Got a soccer star in the family? Repurpose their cleats and uniform and top it all off with the chicest headband you can find. Wear a medal around your neck to channel your inner Abby Wambach, or another member of the World Cup-winning U.S. women's team.
Kim and Joe Davis – Couples' costume alert! While Kentucky court clerk Kim Davis' staunch opposition to same-sex marriage got her noticed, her fashion sense garnered the spotlight too. To dress up as Davis and her equally folksy husband, Joe, you'll need to do the following: Layer, layer layer! Kim is a fan of short Ts over long sleeves and even longer skirts. If you have flowing hair and a pair of wire spectacles, you're in. Hubby Joe is simple: Overalls and a straw hat. To sell the whole look, carry a Bible and print out a provisional marriage license from the Web.
Charlie Brown – There's a new "Peanuts" movie coming up, and Charlie Brown is as popular as always. If you're bald, this one is a slam dunk. Get crafty and cut out black felt or construction paper in a zigzag shape and staple it to your brightest yellow shirt. Slip on black shorts and brown shoes -- and maybe carry a tangled kite -- to be the most loveable sad sack at the party.
Woman on the $10 bill – This one takes a bit of dedication because it can be unwieldy -- you'll need a long piece of cardboard or stiff paper to decorate like a $10 bill. Cut a hole in the middle for your face and you can be the highly anticipated woman who replaces Alexander Hamilton on the tenner.
Minions – This costume, based on characters from the "Minions" and "Despicable Me" movies, doesn't require much: yellow t-shirt, overalls and round goggles. The harder part will be perfecting their crackly cartoon voices.
