With Halloween just a few weeks away, everyone is already prepping up for their Halloween costumes. Since Halloween parties and trick or treats are most common during this time of the year, and since dressing up is the most exciting thing about the Halloween season, people usually plan their costumes ahead of time.

Dressing up is arguably the best part of the season, and this is especially true for parents who want their kids to look cute for their trick or treat, as well as for couples who want to have some fun while celebrating Halloween.

During the Halloween season, it is common for people to go for traditional costumes like a witch, a cat, or a pumpkin. Since the season is also usually associated with ghosts, monsters, and everything supernatural, some people opt to dress like characters from popular horror films like the Annabelle Doll or the evil nun from "The Conjuring."

For people who find traditional costumes boring, they may opt for the less traditional ones that millennials can all relate to. For example, there's BBC's four-year-old interview girl Marion Kelly, who recently became an internet sensation after barging in on her father's BBC interview. Those who want to dress up as a group may also opt for Jacob Rees-Mogg's children, the controversial Tory politician's brood known for their remarkable and unique fashion style.

Meanwhile, Halloween also seems like a perfect time to make a statement about 2017's pop culture hits. While Disney princesses and princes and Marvel/DC superheroes are most common when speaking of pop culture, people may also come up with their own kind of freaky Halloween statements like the dancing hot dog from Snapchat, a handmaid, Groot, or a pregnant Kylie Jenner. Characters from fan-favorite movies like "La La Land" and "My Little Pony" can also make perfect costumes for Halloween.
