When it comes to Halloween costumes, it's always good to go for something topical. Basing your look around something everyone is talking about is a sure-fire way to find costume success. And one dad has gone viral with what must surely be the best costume of Halloween 2019 - a VSCO girl.
His look was on point, with scrunchies, an oversized t-shirt, crocs, and a hydro flask - but even better, he managed to utter all of the classic VSCO-phrases. The video shared on Tik-Tok (where else?) is total perfection.
Let's start at the beginning.What is a VSCO girl? Well, the name comes from a brand of photo-editing software that creates a particular aesthetic for Instagram pics.
But it's expanded to mean much, much more.A VSCO-girl doesn't just edit pictures a certain way. They also tend to like a few particular items, which are basically a part of the uniform.
They're basically everywhere.In fact, VSCO culture is so widespread that it's now basically become a parody of itself. Phrases like "sksksk" and "... and I oop!" are another part of the uniform.
Here's some typical VSCO content.
"VSCO" denotes a certain lifestyle.
With just a few small details ...You can easily put together a perfect VSCO-look - as one dad from Kansas discovered.
He's been doing the rounds on social media.

The dad particularly nails it.

And what's even better?

The videos were shared on TikTok.Because there would be no better place for VSCO-content to be shared, right?
They were shared by a genuine VSCO girl.She posted the videos with the caption, "My mom and dad are the coolest😂🖤 make them tik tok famous!"
And it seems she's got her wish."I had to find this from Twitter because it is absolute perfection," wrote one commenter. "HHAHHAHAHAHA IM SENDING THIS TO EVERYONE I KNOW OH MY GOD," laughed another.
Many had this reaction.
