Think of a thing. Put the word “zombie” before it, and presto! You have a Halloween costume.
The Internet provided some great fodder for Halloween costumes in 2012, from the omnipresent Psy to "binders full of women." Here are some of the best zombified meme costumes to emerge from this year’s All Hallow’s Eve:
1) Zombie Psy
Perhaps the most popular topical costume of the year was “Gangnam Style” star Psy. The Korean rapper has been almost everywhere in recent months; trick or treaters turned him into the living dead. Sadly, @ZombiePsy is not yet a thing.

2) Zombie Overly Attached Girlfriend
Overly Attached Girlfriend was one of the year’s biggest memes, so it stands to reason that she’d be zombified for Halloween. The only difference is that it’s Laina herself dressing up as one of the undead.

4) Zombie Honey Boo Boo
Admittedly, this isn’t a costume, but it’s simply too awesome to not share. Twitter user @Midwestglam painted a portrait of Zombie Honey Boo Boo to hang above the fireplace in his haunted house.
5) Zombie Big Bird
A number of Twitter users considered putting together a Zombie Big Bird outfit (referring to Romney’s debate PBS funding cut remark) but sadly did not. While not a costume, one Instagram user created a creepy Zombie Big Bird toy a couple of weeks back.

That said, maybe a zombie version of the deer he struck in a hit and run would have been a better option. Grassley assumed the deer was dead. We now wonder if he was only half-right.
