12 Smart and Sexy Halloween Costumes That Are So 2020
2020. What a year. With coronavirus, murder hornets, paper toilet hoarding, a hand sanitizer shortage, and a presidential election, the past 10 months have been a non-stop parade of outrageous, unpredictable events. It only makes sense that some of these would be memorialized — and mocked — in Halloween costume form. The bummer, of course, is that because of COVID-19, Halloween is essentially canceled. Alas.
Still, there’s nothing stopping you from getting all dressed up and attending a virtual party or posting an epic Instagram pic. If you’re having trouble picking the perfect get-up (or just need a laugh), we suggest one of these 12 smart and sexy costumes. Don’t let the ‘rona ruin the best holiday of the year.

This costume isn't sexy but it is smart. So many hard surfaces, so many germs. If you ever want to get it on on a table, countertop, or bathroom sink again, you're going to need a canister of these.
