Halloween 2014 is just around the corner. In San Francisco, people seldom need an excuse to dress up in various costumes. Just last month, the city enjoyed the Superhero Street Fair — and then there’s always Burning Man Decompression.  For Halloween, everyone gets to dress up if they want to!

Whether you’re going to the Village Halloween Parade in NYC — or stuck at some awkward family party —  here are some Halloween 2014 costume ideas:

1. A Bendable iPhone 6 (Too Soon?)

2. Vladimir Putin Riding a Horse

The Guilty Remnants -- Halloween Costume Idea

The Leftovers: The Guilty Remnants — awesome group costume.

In the phenomenal series on HBO called “The Leftovers” — the Guilty Remnants are a cult-like group that is mysterious and deadly. They don’t speak — instead use notepads for communicating. To show how hopeless everything is in the show, the members of the GR cult smoke. Constantly.

Probably the easiest costume in the world.
