“Baby Shark” was a song we sang on the bus in 5th grade, why is it a thing now? This baby shark however, can doo, doo, doo all over my heart.

5. Flash the sloth


Yes, he is a sloth and yes his name is flash. It’s only fitting that he would work at the DMV.

All of our pets are our children and it’s only right that we emulate them.

Shout out to the family for turning the wheelchair into a superpower!

Janet Jackson & Tupac are iconic for not only their music, but their iconic roles in Poetic Justice. (every one wanted those poetic justice braids).

11. The legend of the headless child.


I always thought it would be the parents who would finally lose their head.

12. The Cutest Delivery Boy

There is nothing better than seeing a meme come to life. Especially when it involves dogs AND pizza.

13. Bratz Doll


These dolls always had style, class and big heads. The make-up? The hair? 12 year old me is LIVING.

14. Phoni Braxton

Only legends pay homage to other legends!

15. Missy Elliott as…Missy Elliott

Imagine being so talented that you have no other choice but to dress as yourself? Just another example of black women blessings.

16. To All The Lara’s I’ve Loved Before

Everyone needs to scroll through this (very long) thread of the the best Lara Jean and Peter Kavinsy impersonators.  They’re very good and you’ll probably start crying again.

17. This amazing makeup look

There are talented make-up artists of color lurking in the shadows! Find them!

18. This adorable loofah


Check out this adorable baby ready for bath time. She’s going to give you clear skin and lots of giggles.

19. This woman trying to bond with her cat.

Unlike dogs, cats do not appreciate the lengths pet owners will go.

20. The dreaded slack notification

The scariestest thing known in existence. There is no escaping it, once you hear that bell, you know.

21. This hitchhiking ghost family

Be honest, Susie was THAT girl on Rugrats! There is no comparison. Check out the Kiera’s full instagram to see what other characters she has cosplayed. (hint: they’re our favorite 90’s cartoons).

25. When couple costumes don’t work out as planned…


Et tu tomato? Even though the costume didn’t pan out the way they wanted it to, you can’t say that he isn’t dressing the part.

26. This adorable ghost dog

These pictures are not that scary but they are doing their best. This is the best costume so far, I will not argue with you.

Babies dressed as legends (including one of the greatest athlete this world has ever seen) is my aesthetic.
