Grumpy Cat became the face of the internet in 2012. Since then, she (yes, Grumpy is a girl) has spawned thousands of memes and has appeared on more television shows than one can possibly name. Dress as this kitty for Halloween and pay homage to both unimpressed attitudes and cats everywhere.

No one could have guessed that 2016 would be the year the internet turned Arthur Read, our favorite animated PBS character, into a viral fist-clenching meme. Personify both meme culture and childhood innocence and dress as the revived character. D.W. might get most of the meme love, but Arthur is not one to be ignored.

There can only be one meme to rule them all, but this Disney Star deserves to be recognized. While we don't recommend picking a fight on Twitter with Azealia Banks, we encourage you to show your peers exactly how you are wise beyond your years. If you can't commit to carrying around a suede chair to sit cross-legged in all night, a folding chair will suffice.
Greylin, Women's Millany Laser Cut Dress, $48-$100, available at Amazon; ASOS, Glamorous Gold Patent Two Part Heeled Sandals, $40.29, available at ASOS; Cosco, Fabric Padded Folding Chair, $22.23, available at Jet.
