You probably have a few guesses as to the kinds of Halloween costumes we'll be seeing this year — lots of Donald Trumps, maybe some Harambes, perhaps some shoutouts to Netflix hits like Stranger Things, definitely some recently-disgraced Ken Bones

So, what things were headline fodder and costume-worthy the year you were born?
