Halloween is right around the corner, which means that you’re probably desperately searching for last-minute costume ideas.

But that’s no excuse for being unoriginal.

Every year, there are those costumes that you can’t seem to escape. How many twerking Mileys and Macklemores did you see last year?

Exactly.

Here are this year’s pop culture costumes you’ll want to avoid.

Pharrell's hat was everywhere this year -- it even has a Twitter account. We've all had enough of Pharrell's hat.

The Ice Bucket Challenge went super viral this year. Perhaps it's time to give it a rest.

With the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie and cartoons, you can be sure every kid and their mother will be dressing up as the reptilian crime fighters.

Every little girl wants to be Elsa from 'Frozen,' but it's time to let it go.

Olaf is cute, but we're sure you could come up with a better costume than a snowman in the middle of October.

Chris Pratt's Star-Lord was a hit with kids and adults alike, which means a whole lot of copy-cats running around this Halloween.

You probably don't have cheekbones like Angelina Jolie so don't bother trying to emulate the evil fairy in 'Maleficent.'

Everybody cried when Derek Jeter played his last game. Let's not relive the memory.

A new Captain America movie this year means a new crop of little Captains this Halloween. Show your patriotism another way.

Taylor Swift's 'Shake It Off' personas seem like great costumes...which is why everyone will be wearing them.

Ariana Grande is really into dressing up as a cat. But you should probably avoid dressing up as her if you want to be original.

He is Groot. You are not.
