Halloween is the best holiday ever—am I right?! It’s full of spooky costumes, autumn leaves, and tons of candy (vegan chocolate, anyone?!), and I wait anxiously for it every year. This year, I’m thinking that I will get creative instead of defaulting to my good ol’ Eric Draven makeup, so I’ve come up with a top five list of the best animal rights–themed costumes—thanks to PETA staffers and Street Teamers from last year who stepped up their game! Take a look:

5. Tofu: Yep, tofu—who doesn’t love it?!

4. Evil Ronald: Yeaaaah, is an explanation really necessary here? I mean, c’mon. Ronald McDonald is pretty much the essence of evil … and who isn’t afraid of clowns?!

3. Mad scientist: Poisoning monkeys, chopping apart live dogs, implanting electrodes into animals’ brains … pretty nutso, right?

2. Zombie (aka Flesh-Eater!): Because chomping into someone else’s flesh, bone, muscle, and skin is just downright creepy.

1. Factory-Farming Victim: Life on a factory farm and death in a slaughterhouse are nightmares … but it happens to millions of animals every single day. Give your friends something to think about.

Pretty spooky, right? What are YOU going to be for Halloween this year?

    As a kid, I was and am still curious about the great big world we live in, and I thought nothing of animal abuse. But for some or no completely good reasons, I was getting sicker and weaker. Then one day I heard about PETA while I was on the internet. I got a little curious, and I went veg after finding out meat was one of the reasons I was sicker. Right now, I'm still trying to give up meat for my health. But I'm getting there!
