  1. The “Fail Whale” Costume
  2. The Facebook Profile Costume (not to be confused with Jim Halpert’s “Facebook” Costume)
  3. The iPhone Costume (and the Blackberry Costume)
  4. The Rickroll Costume
  5. The MySpace Profile Costume
  6. The Youtube Costume
  7. The Chris Crocker “Leave Britney Alone” Costume
  8. Foursquare Merit Badges
