Sexy honey badger don't care.

Have you spent the greater part of 2011 at your desk job avoiding your work, surfing the internet, and laughing at memes? Or perhaps you've been unemployed this year; you've sat at your apartment, listlessly surfing the internet, halfheartedly laughing at memes? Either way, dressing as your favorite meme this Halloween will show your friends and potential romantic partners that that you're up on the most significant memes of the past year. And if you can't bear to let Halloween pass without donning a revealing ensemble, we've once again included sexy versions of all our memes.

Hipster Ariel

Required Materials:

Red wig

Long mermaid skirt

Everyone enjoys reminiscing about their beloved childhood cartoons. Start a drunken group rendition of "Under the Sea" and you're sure to be the most popular guy in the bar.

Luckily, this meme already allows you to show some skin. But if you'd like to go the extra sexy mile, we'd suggest using the teeniest available shells in place of an actual bikini.

Nyan Cat

Required Materials:

Poster board
Paint kit
Cat ears
Face paint
Gay-pride flag

Just sing the Nyan Cat song over and over. You'll make lots of new friends.

Try provocatively crawling around on the floor all night. You've just taken "sexy cat" one disturbing step too far.

Honey Badger

Required Materials:

Black T-shirt
Snake
White hair dye
Sassy friend to narrate your night

Psych yourself up for an evening of aggressive badassery. Transformed by this costume, you'll approach possible danger with a defiant, unfazed attitude. Honey-badger-approved activities include defending a lady's honor at a nightclub; chasing cobras into treetops; and passing out, seemingly dead, from taking in too much poison, only to stagger back to your feet the following morning. Actually, you'll probably do that anyway.

The laws of sexiness dictate that any time you can draw attention to your mouth, you double your sex appeal.

Chuck Testa

Required Materials:

Army green T-shirt
Camo hat
Sunglasses
Stuffed animal

Chuck Testa's low-budget commercial was (perhaps by design) the perfect meme. The combination of stilted acting, a ridiculous premise, and taxidermized animals was too much for the internet to resist. Hanging out at a hunting lodge, the Ace Hotel, or another venue featuring taxidermized animal heads will aid in the effect of this costume.

Infantilize yourself using children's stuffed animals. That's definitely sexy.

Rebecca Black

Required Materials:

Rebecca Black wig (courtesy Headline Costumes)
Purple T-shirt
Backpack
Hoop earrings
Homemade calendar

Every time I hear Rebecca Black's ridiculous homage to the fifth day of the week, I think to myself, "You're thirteen. This is literally the easiest your life will ever be. Not even the people I know with real jobs like Friday as much as you do." You can add another dimension by narrating your banal activities all night, as awkwardly as possible.

As a bonus, this sexy costume alerts you to the presence of potential pedophiles.
