JAY-Z on a jet ski
— DatPiff (@DatPiff) July 5, 2018
Earlier this year, Twitter turned an awkward picture of JAY-Z riding waves on a jet ski into one of the most hilarious memes of 2018. While the picture actually dated back to an Italy trip in 2016, it was proof that no awkward moment is exempt from becoming immortalized in a meme.
In the picture, Hova could be seen riding a jet ski in full protective gear. And while a jet ski purchase is a tall ask for a Halloween costume, a white long-sleeve tee, red helmet, and life vest should do the trick nicely.
Kanye in Uganda
Just two weeks ago, Kanye West traveled to Uganda to build a recording studio and record his upcoming album, YANDHI. While there, Kanye met President Museveni, gifted local school kids YEEZYs and, in pure ’Ye fashion, flexed in his best ’fits, as seen above.
Never short of funny moments shared online, Kanye is always a safe bet on the costume front. This year, to dress up as Uganda Kanye, all you’ll need is a basic purple hat, a frozen yellow T-shirt, and matching basketball shorts.
Kim Kardashian’s ‘Richardson’ cover
Attention seekers, this one’s for you. Last week, Kim Kardashian graced the “A9” issue of erotic publication Richardson in her underwear. Unsurprisingly, the cover went viral thanks to its striking image and the accompanying Bret Easton Ellis interview.
And, as you’ll see from the image above, replicating it yourself is a pretty cost-friendly job. All you need is a pair of white briefs, some cardboard cutouts, and a whole lotta baby oil. That’s Halloween sorted all for the low price of $15. We’d suggest investing in a jacket with your savings…
