"Oh my gosh, look at that costume" is probably what you're going to hear a lot of this year if you and your friends decide to dress up as Nicki Minaj and her troop of "Anaconda". Since we've already covered possible costumes from the best of Queen Bey and her visual album, it only make sense that we highlight Beyonce's "Flawless" partner in crime. Plus, the visual effect of a crew of jean-shorted, white-tanked, mean-mugging girl army is more than enough to convince us that this is THE costume of the year.

Make sure you and your friends practice those dance moves, too. They'll be as much a part of your costume as the pink fanny packs. If you need a refresher, just watch these Vines of Nicki teaching models backstage at the Alexander Wang show this New York Fashion Week. If you need me, I'll be working on strengthening my quads.
