The memes of reddit, Instagram, and other spots on the social web again sprang to life at HallowMeme, the annual costume party by Forced Meme Productions, held on Thursday, October 30 at the Bell House in Brooklyn. Gamer Gate, Jay-Z & Beyonce, Pharrell’s Hat, the terrible (the Fappening), the adorable who can forget the “Apparently” kid?), and the strange parts of the social Internet were all there. It’s surely the most topical party of the year. Winners of the costumer contest were, in third place, Gem Stone as “But That’s None Of My Business” Kermit ; in second place, Ryan Broderick as Every Man on the Internet, and in first place, Lauren Thompson as Renee Zellweger.
