The 10 Greatest Halloween Costumes

Halloween is coming. If you’re like us, you procrastinate and procrastinate until finally you slap a pair of horns on your head and go as a wildebeest. It has happened. But this year, we’re here to help. No one wants to be one of those girls dressed up as a sexy cat/nurse/firefighter/whathaveyou (apparently slutty is the new 8), or that guy who just stuffs a pillow down his shirt. Take a look at our top ten Halloween costumes for a little inspiration.

P.S.  Perhaps we’ll see you (or you’ll see us) in one of these at our famous  Flavorpill Halloween Party?
