Dale Cooper and Bob, Twin Peaks
Sure, if you can be the show's villain, Bob, and have someone else willing to go as FBI Detective Dale Cooper, that would be pretty tight. But Bob is still a sick costume by himself. Who doesn't love a totally frightening villain in a Canadian tuxedo? Dude can definitely stand on his own.
What you'll need: A jean jacket, jeans (a jean jumpsuit can serve as an alternative), a long gray wig, and terrifying smile
Curious George and The Man in the Yellow Hat
My brother royally screwed my costume up by not showing up for the Halloween party. But if the tables had been turned, Curious George would have been absolutely fine rolling stag.
What you’ll need: A monkey suit and a red T-shirt (bonus points if you get a yellow fabric pen and write "George" on the shirt)
Pikachu and Pokémon player
If you're going as Pikachu and one of the catchin' kids, I commend you. But if Ash gets sick (or a side chick), at least you will still look fabulous and totally on-trend this Halloween.
What you'll need: This amazing costume
Liz Lemon and Kenneth or Jack
Liz Lemon will truly never not be a funny costume. If you've got Kenneth or Jack to throw in the mix, that's cool; but you can rock a Liz costume by yourself and still be the coolest person at the party… unless someone else is Liz Lemon, and has managed to get their date to actually show up.
