  1. ZomBee: Remember that bee you swatted earlier this summer? Well now it has come back to life to haunt all of your friends this fall.
  2.  Dandy Lion: The pretty weed everyone pulls from their lawn walks into the party with a roar.
  3. Copy Cat: It’s not embarrassing when you show up wearing the same outfit as your friend... as long as you have some cat ears and whiskers, too.
  4.  French Kiss: Rock and roll, with a baguette and beret on the side, please.
  5.  Holy Cow: The holiest cow on the farm blesses the party with its presence.
  6. Deviled Egg: Who knew breakfast could be so evil?
  7.  Candy Rapper: Step 1: Trick-or-treat. Step 2. Eat all the candy. Step 3: Glue the wrappers on your outfit. Step 4: Grab your friends Kanye and Jay Z and you’re ready to go.
  8. Miss Universe: First stop: outer space. Last stop: Halloween party. But don’t forget your crown and sash.
  9.  Black Eyed Peas: Easy Peasy. A black eye and the letter P is all you’ll need. **Please use makeup rather than having someone punch you.
  10.  Taco Bell: Everyone is speechless when the princess walks into the party with a beautiful yellow gown… covered in tacos.
