20 Hella phat ’90s-inspired Halloween costumes we’re buggin’ over

Let’s face it: There are some terrible Halloween costumes out there. I mean, you can only dress as a slutty version of a typically non-slutty professional so many times until you yearn for the good old days — you know, back when Halloween was actually about creative costumes and chocolate. (OK, it’s still a little bit about chocolate.)

It’s time to unleash your inner Blossom by rocking a ’90s-inspired Halloween costume. (Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to look through my Delia’s catalog and listen to Hanson while eating Dunkaroos.)
