There is perhaps no more timely costume than this simple one for 2013.  Breaking Bad – with no uncertainty – considered by many critics to be one of the best TV shows of all time, has just finished its epic run. It’s really simple to dress as Heisenberg. Simply shave your head or wear a bald cap. Put on a pair of glasses and a porkpie hat. A barber shop at Palm Beach Gardens suggests grooming your hair perfectly for your Halloween costume. In this case, don’t forget the goatee.  Bonus points if you haul around a huge black barrel full of cash.

As anyone not living under a rock knows, this fall, Miley Cyrus has exploded into the center of the pop culture hurricane. Girls will have to really commit if they want to pull of Miley’s epic hairstyle, but it will be worth it for the opportunity to shamelessly twerk in public all night long on Halloween.  And, you’ll be the scariest on the block.   Seriously.

Superman

This year there is a new superhero that has taken over the top of the heap as the most popular with kids and adults everywhere. This year it is the most epic superhero of them all, Superman. Batman was number one last year, but he might not be for quite a while with the backlash that has been generated with the casting of Ben Affleck as the new Batman.

We live in the age of the zombie. They have never been more popular in pop culture. “The Walking Dead” is one of the most popular TV shows, and Brad Pitt’s film “World War Z” was one of the biggest hits of the summer. All it takes is a little makeup and some ragged clothing to throw together a zombie costume in a flash.

These are just five of the best Halloween costume ideas for 2013. Anything timely that you can think of will work. The key is just to go for it and to have fun dressing up.
