This Halloween was very different from the previous ones. It turns out, this year, more Americans bought costumes for their pets and transformed them into hot dogs, superheroes, cats, pumpkins, and bumblebees. This new trend can be attributed to pandemic-induced social distancing that took traditional Halloween activities like parties, dinners, and trick-or-treating off the menu.
"This is fine" meme has turned out to be one of the most popular Halloween costumes this year, winning hearts on social media without a competition. It’s because the "this is fine" dog seen drinking coffee in a house engulfed in flames managed to perfectly capture the essence of how we all feel about this year so far.

Bored Panda reached out to Lydia Garcia, a visual artist from Austin, Texas who also pulled off “the costume of our times,” “this is fine” meme, for Halloween.

“We tried to find laughter out of all the insanity and we thought this meme encompassed our feelings with every piece of bad news we've seen this year.”
Lydia added that his year, she missed out on seeing friends and family and the neighborhood in costume, and “that was a bummer.” On the other hand, the couple still “could still enjoy the spooky movie nights and Schitt's Creek costumes everyone killed it on.”
