Each year, the trendiest Halloween costumes are typically derived from the year’s most talked-about news stories.
And in 2015, there are plenty of choices that are sure to be the highlight of this year’s festivities…Some are positive, some are controversial.
For instance, Kim Davis is expected to be one of the most popular costumes this year.
She’s the Kentucky court clerk who refused to grant marriage licenses to same-sex couples.
Bruce Jenner made big headlines when transitioning to Caitlyn.
And while some are calling this costume “transphobic,” Jenner herself says she thinks the idea is great and doesn’t find the costumes offensive at all.

Another costume that many are calling “tasteless” is Walter Palmer, the dentist who made headlines for killing Cecil the lion.
But PETA has come out with their own rendition – Cecil attacking the dentist!
OMG! Cecil the Lion Halloween costume! LMAO http://t.co/8ewn7lywCE

Remember the “What color is it dress?”
This costume reflects both the black and blue or white and gold optical illusion.
