Ready for the spooky season? TikTok Halloween costumes, inspired by the platform's best trends and challenges, will ensure that you are the best, most viral pick of the costume contest. 



TikTok Halloween costumes to wear this October 31

1. Pesto eggs

TikTok went gaga over the pesto eggs brunch fad. Rather than cook a scrambled or sunnyside-up egg with butter or oil, one clever culinary wiz suggested using pesto instead. Thus, a new trend was born! Pair your egg costume with green leggings or perhaps a green wig and you'll be the most delicious dish in town!

One-piece polyester egg tunic. One size fits most adults.

2. Honey challenge

Much to health professionals' dismay, TikTok users become obsessed with squeezing frozen honey into their mouths. If you want to show your appreciation for the condiment and its TikTok stardom, Halloween is the perfect time to do so. 

PSA: The frozen honey challenge has been placed on the "do not attempt" list, as it causes distress to the teeth and gastrointestinal issues.

4. The towel challenge

Many people attempted the impossible this summer: to undo their interlocked towels. Was the towel challenge actually possible? Was it rigged? Don your best beach apparel, find a buddy and lock your towels together to celebrate one of the year's best viral tasks.

A six-pack of cabana-striped, 30-by-60 inch beach towels. 

5. Berries and cream

A Lord Farquaad-inspired character who goes crazy for a new Starburst flavor, Berries and Cream, is making the rounds on TikTok. As made famous by the candy's late 2000s commercial, the tune is catchy, and not in a good way.

Justin McElroy, @hoopsmcelroy (opens in new tab) asked the TikTok universe: "Please make great art with this sound. It's what we all need." 

If you've experienced a fashion faux pas that makes your style seem dated, that's when to post the "Berries and Cream" chant. It's all a nod to the enthusiastic character.
