Top pop culture figures of 2014 to dress up as for Halloween

Shia LaBeouf’s Bag Head
Shia LaBeouf wore a paper bag to pose for cameras on the red carpet and walking out of a press conference at the Berlin Film Festival, causing friends and fans to wonder what he was thinking.
This costume won't cost much if you have a tux in your closet, a paper bag and a sharpie!

Beyonce’s Sexy Selfie
Selfies are all the rage now -- from #selfiesunday to selfies becoming the new autograph when you encounter a celeb.
Beyonce did it right with her selfie costume -- looks like other than the sexy outfit, she decorated some cardboard and simply held it over her face!

Angelina Jolie’s 'color'ful wedding dress
The most anticipated wedding of the year finally happened, and everyone was talking about Angelina's wedding dress and veil, which her children hand designed with markers -- it's adorable, and we think easy to replicate.

Amanda Bynes Costume
Amanda Bynes has had a tough year in 2014 -- with multiple arrests and erratic behavior as well. Amanda Bynes showed up at a Manhattan Criminal Court on July 9, 2013 to face  charges of reckless endangerment, tampering with evidence and criminal possession of marijuana in relation to her arrest on May 23, 2013. A wig and a few painted tattoos and you should be good to go!

Emoji Costume!
@mattkays posted a hilarious costume of a poop emoji for Halloween ... very creative, we must say!

Obamacare Website Fail Costume
How many people saw this message when trying to sign up for Obamacare this year? Too many to count.
The New York Post highlighted one of the most clever costumes we've seen yet -- made with simple cardboard, some cutouts, and a spot for your face (with mask or none).
Buzzfeed also showed how creative one man got with his costume -- he illustrated the website failure with simple scrubs, some fake blood and a sharpie.

Ice Bucket Challenge Costume
So now the 'Ice Bucket Challenge' is actually a costume! Looks like it's simple enough to make on your own, but Salon.com points out that you can now buy one at Brandsonsale.
