Halloween 2020 has so much going for it: it’s on a Saturday, there’s going to be a full moon and there’s going to be an extra hour of haunting thanks to daylight savings time. The only thing standing in the way of this seemingly perfect Halloween is the fact that it’s been a dumpster fire of a year but don’t you dare let that hold you back from dressing up, letting loose and having the best darn Halloween yet!
The murder, mayhem and madness of Tiger King gripped us all earlier this year and since there weren’t many great bounds in pop culture afterward, it’s safe to say that Joe Exotic is going to be one of the hottest costumes of 2020. Pair this loud and flashy sequin button-down shirt with a handlebar mustache, mullet and piercings and, voila! You are looking grrrreat.
