    A 404 Message

    There are oodles of 404-type costumes making the rounds on Reddit, with each one being slightly lazier than the last. Apparently, the guy in @boxersninja's photo didn't even write this himself. Talk about dedication.

    What you'll need: A plain white shirt, a sharpie, and steady penmanship.

    Fat Thor

    Redditor u/GallowB**b's hilarious Fat Thor costume is super easy to recreate, plus it's one of the few - if only - Halloween costumes where you don't have to worry about spilling your drinks.

    What you'll need: A pair of glasses, pajama pants, and an old grey T-shirt are the essentials. Of course, if you want to go the extra mile, you can also pick up a fake beard and blonde wig, and faux belly shirt to help add a few LBs.

    Freddie Mercury

    Redditor u/Fruity667's low-budget Freddie Mercury is both easy to spot and even easier to make.

    What you'll need: A pair of super tight jeans, a white tank top, and a mustache. Copious amounts of chest hair is encouraged.

    Redditor u/lionzion's American Psycho costume is an instant win. If you can find a white suit to wear underneath and learn how to perfect that evil scowl, your Halloween game will be on point.

    What you'll need: a clear raincoat, fake blood, and lots and lots of hair gel. Carrying a few videotapes around wouldn't hurt, either.
