Emojis are an integral part of modern communication. They have always had a significant presence in pop culture, and this has culminated in this year’s The Emoji Movie.
The film brought some dynamic new characters into the fictional realm of iconography, and some of us are reflecting on the semiotic value of these glorified emoticons.
The rest of us are flooding our group chats with ’em. However you celebrate the emoji, you can take that a step further by going as your favorite for Halloween.
Their simple design makes them pretty easy to D.I.Y. if you so desired, but there are also a number of high quality costume kits already for sale online.
Read on below to check out some of our favorites, and put a smile on. Or a kissy face. Or a turd.

4. Costume Source Poo Emoji Kids Costume
I think that the poop emoji is a very humanizing part of the emoji anthology. It’s magical how it tickles everyone’s scatological funny bone just right.
No doubt, that’s why this icon is so popular with the kids.
This poop emoji tunic comes in a child and adult size. But we’re kind of relying on you to raise the bar here, adults.

5. UHC Eggplant Emoji Tunic Costume
My personal all-time favorite emoji is sometimes so profound that it transcends meaning.
The eggplant emoji transports you to a world where vegetables and phallic symbols alike are utterly obsolete. Instead, there is only purple.
This garb will fit adults of most size, and older kids as well.
