The Best Unexpected Places To Look For Halloween Costume Inspiration

When you're an adult, the Halloween stakes can feel even higher than they did when you were growing up. You no longer care about getting the most full-size candy bars (there is nothing fun about fun-size), or hitting up the most houses on your block. You care about showing up with an original, creative costume that you won't see 10 other people wearing.
This year, solve the Halloween dilemma by logging into one of these six apps. Chances are, you already have some of them downloaded on your phone. Instead of going to them for their intended purposes, including to learn about museum exhibits and the top spring runway trends, use them as the ultimate sources of truly unique costume inspiration.
Click through to see where to get some fresh ideas. And, if all else fails, you can always pick your favorite Snapchat filter.
