Struggling to come up with that perfect Halloween costume that represents a piece of you, looks cute as hell, and doesn’t break the bank? Don’t worry, Twitter’s got your back with a recent trend: This year you can go as the sexy version of your greatest fear, and if you can’t think of a good combo, there are dozens of suggestions.

Many used the rise of the surging pre-Halloween meme as an opportunity to poke fun at their own concerns and insecurities, like @brai_1993, who’s sexy costume would be “Sexy all my friends are only friends with me as part of an elaborate practical joke.”

The jokes write themselves. What is an intangible fear that you have? Dropping out of college? Losing your wireless Apple earbuds? Just write “sexy” in front of that and boom, you have a Halloween costume.

Some costume ideas were a bit too real. “Sexy existential dread,” or worse, “sexy responsibility.” No thank you.

Some people used the meme as a chance to express their political fears, like @sethdmichaels, who’s costume would be “Sexy The Historical Window for Pluralistic Liberal Democracy is Small and Closing,” or @MalloryInPink’s “sexy men telling me what to do with my body.”

Fears over the quality of upcoming video games were even targeted, from the upcoming release of Red Dead Redemption 2 to Rayman 4.

There were, of course, those who went in a more traditional direction. Options like “sexy shark” and “sexy snakes” abound. Don’t worry @luvpreet33, Indiana Jones can rock that sexy snake costume with you.

A few of these costumes would legit be terrifying. “Sexy Catheter Violently Jammed Up My Dickhole?” How would you even make that?

Even Twitter got in on the fun. The official Twitter account announced “Sexy Edit Button,” as its Halloween costume.
