People Are Freaking Out Over This Teen's Post Malone Halloween Costume

It's so perfect.

Posted on

Jess told BuzzFeed News she came up with the idea after seeing a video of the rapper singing "Tongue Tied" by Grouplove. "I wasn't sure if I could even pull it off, so I wanted to give it a test run before Halloween," she said.

Obviously, things worked out really well. Here's a comparison of the image Jess used as guidance and how she ended up looking:

Jess said she only used makeup for her look, and used ka-BROW eyebrow gel for her eyebrows and the dark shade in the Anastasia contour kit. The under-eye tattoo is eyeliner.


First, Jess sent the photos to her friends on Snapchat. They were suitably taken aback by it.

I opened this and was like wtf is she sending me post Malone snaps for and I realized it was her crazy ass πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€

And then Jess tweeted out her final look. That's when things really took off. Retweets began rapidly rolling in, and Jess had plenty of other people inspired by her costume as well, trying it out for themselves.

So I think I nailed my @PostMalone Halloween costume

@kate_osowski @jessicakmeyer @PostMalone well at least you tried!!


@jessicakmeyer @PostMalone My sister did it best πŸ€·πŸ½β€β™€οΈ

People were just really excited by the idea.

By far the funniest reaction to Posty following me πŸ˜‚πŸ’€

This is the best @PostMalone halloween costume we've ever seen! πŸ˜‚

@jessicakmeyer @chrissie_mariee @PostMalone I went to twitter so i could tweet him your picture, cuz i saw it on In…


@dan_esq_13 @jessicakmeyer @PostMalone Oh my god this is amazing

@jessicakmeyer @jordann_smith7 @PostMalone i deadass thought this was a comparison but it's two pics damn girl you win πŸ˜‚

And everyone started talking about how this might become one of the Big Halloween Costumes of 2017.

Calling it now, I’m gonna see at least 5 Post Malone fits on Halloween πŸ™„

On Friday, Jess checked Twitter to find not only had Post Malone followed her profile, but also he had posted a few pics with his new doppelganger on his Instagram and Snapchat.


"For the most part the reaction has been amazing," said Jess. "I've received tons of messages and everyone has been really nice."
