Explaining these costumes to a Victorian orphan would put them in a coma

For Halloween 2023, nobody was messing about. Gone were ghouls, goblins, spirits and dead things and in were the most niche, meme costumes imaginable. Twitter and TikTok gays are leading the way when it comes to viral costumes that sum up the year’s best pop culture references and I wouldn’t have it any other way. “I hate gay Halloween parties what do you mean you’re-” followed by a variety of chaos filled my Twitter and TikTok, so here’s a comprehensive rundown of the most unmissable meme costumes from 2023.
