The 21 best meme Halloween costume ideas that will #BreakTheInternet

The internet is a breeding ground for memes, trends, and any/all goings-on. It seems like each day a new idea grows legs, and suddenly everyone is talking about it everywhere. Some just happen (like the blue or white dress), while others have been around for years (like cat breading). While each would be a huge win as a Halloween costume, some are certainly better than others. Here, 21 of the absolute best internet meme costumes to help you slay this Halloween.
