Trump and Clinton: I don’t think it’s any secret to say that the presidential candidate masks in the Halloween stores will be almost sold out. Get them fast, and win the race…no pun intended.

Kim and Kanye: This is going to be a top costume for couples all over. With the unruly amounts of drama, news and updates about these two contently bombarding the media, there are bound to be more than one Kim and Kanye on the streets for Halloween.
