It’s Halloween! That means some super creative souls are showing off clever costumes that’ll make us say, “Man, why didn’t I think of that?” Here are some of our favorites so far:

Clearly, Cardi B is one of the most popular costumes of the year.

The rapper recently got engaged to Offset of Migos, so it makes for one of the best couples costumes of 2017.

This Cardi B costume can be described in one word: accurate.

Get it.

This is the biggest little chicle you’ll see this Halloween.

Celia Cruz at the Latin Grammys will always be classic.

Instantly recognizable, eye-catching, and super fun. How can you go wrong with this kind of costume? Hint: you can’t.

This clever man showed up as El Rey del Acordeon, Ramón Ayala.

That’s definitely one costume no one will ever forget and how could they.

If rancheras are more your speed, here’s the one and only Chente.

The giant head is a nice touch. Really makes him stand out.

This JuanGa get up is clever and kinda creepy, tbh.

That’s definitely El Divo but that mask doesn’t totally do him justice.

This little cutie has that Romeo Santos post completely down.

This classic J.Lo and Diddy look will take you back to the year 2000…

… and this one will bring you back to 2017.

This “Ladies of the Supreme Court” costume features Sonia Sotomayor.

Demi Lovato as Selena is only going to make you more envious than you already are.

First of all, you look incredible, sweetie. Secondly, who wants to make me this same outfit for a $3 budget?

LaLa Romero nailed this Selena look from the 1994 Grammy Awards.

Holding an actual Grammy Award is a great touch.

America Ferrera’s “Superstore” character is also getting a lot of love this year.

Yes, one of the funniest sitcoms on network TV features a Latina lead. 

This little paletero proves that you’re never too young for a great and creative outfit.

Even when the paletero is that young you’ll struggle to keep up with him.

Last, but not least, this J.Lo and Pitbull couple’s costume slays.
