Anytime you have to spell out what it is on the costume, it is a bad costume.

Wearing that constitutes utter social failure and just plain out retardedness

PLEASE someone has to use these comstumes in their photo-shopping efforts HAHAHA!

It's incredibly scary, outright frightening actually, to fathom that some parents actually paid money for their kids to wear this.

If I saw that I would want to twist the kids head.

One time I just tied a Pepsi can to my head. When people would ask me what I was supposed to be, I'd say I was God. (I dunno about you, but in every vision of God I've ever had, he's got a Pepsi can on his head.)
That was a pretty lousy costume.

I like Dave Barry's idea this year:

"This year I think I'll have a more subdued costume. Maybe I'll dress up as a large piece of lumber and carry around a cardboard box labeled ``Interest Rates,'' and every few steps, I'll drop it. Get it? It's the Federal Reserve ``Board!'' Dropping interest rates! Ha ha! I bet THAT will get a big reaction from the neighborhood kids! Probably in the form of eggs."

Alienlogic, apparently they made one of The Indian from The Village People, too. the Leather Man was the absolutely GAYEST looking one of the bunch. Though I imagine a cowboy or sailor mask would be a bit too generic.

Well if you want cheap,last year Jan and I got two t.v. boxes,painted them white and went as a washer and dryer...this year she's making a skirt and a top out of AOL discs!

Looks like we're hungry for a good photoshop. That one last night just wasn't that great.

Rhberry, knowing they made one Village People costume is bad enough, but there was a second one? Eeeeyyyeeewwwww. Oh, and it's Alienmagic, BTW :)

Man oh man... I was considering going as a Pedestrian this year, but after those costumes, I think I'm going to have to change my plans! Long live Chachie!!
2001-10-27 11:55:04 AM  
I am either going to be Gumby this year, or a cucumber.
2001-10-27 12:11:43 PM  
I want the asteroids costume. Anyone else going as the "spooky ghost" from South Park? :)

I said it in the last Halloween thread, I once got all the green Easter basket grass I could find, glued it to myself and went as a Chia Pet.

"The Worst Halloween Costumes Ever"

very funny

I love SNL, and the Invisible Pedestrian costume...
2001-10-27 04:32:44 PM  
I remmeber most of those costumes.... that was for the real poor kids that went to Longs for costumes... farking plastic shiat
2001-10-27 04:50:13 PM  
Forsythe - We did the box thing too except we used wrapping paper to cover them and put bows on our heads and went as birthday presents. Lame lame lame
2001-10-27 06:49:21 PM  
Ham Salad AND Augie Ben Doggie? Where's Chewchilla the Wookiee Monster or Darf Nader?

Oh man, I had forgotten some of those horrible costumes! And a bunch of them had lunchboxes that matched. I got so sick of that Kotter-Horshack-Barbarino crap when I was in school. I sent Nick at Nite some hate mail when they aired it.

Terron: In the fifth grade I actually work that Rubik's Cube costume. I remember wearing it to a school Halloween party. When I walked thru the door, *every* farking classmate stopped what they were doing and looked at me. Then the laughing began. The laughing stopped only long enough for me to either remove the offending costume or get beaten up.

That was almost as bad as the time my mom made me (again in the fifth grade) dress up as the Mathematician from The Phantom Toolbooth for some school party. I don't even want to talk about that one.
2001-10-27 07:22:39 PM  
wow, do i feel lucky. my mom is very good at sewing and would make us almost any costume we asked for. she even made a great cheetah costume for my sister.
if my folks had tried to get me these wierd plastic costumes, i would be begging for a cardboard box.
i'm trying to convince a couple of my friends to dress up as a three headed ghost this year. just drape a king sized sheet with eyeholes for all of us, we'll walk on our knees and get candy like we were kids. do you think people would figure out we're all in our twenties?

Whoever submitted this--THANKS! Now I know when FX 2001 is. Sometimes it's good to live in Orlando.

...two days a year qualifies as "sometimes" right?

Luuuuurrrrrrvvvvvvvee the Farrah Fawcett mask. Which reminds me...I went to a fancy dress party once with a naked girl on my back. The host said, "What have you come as?" I said, "A turtle." He said, "But there's a girl on your back and she's got no clothes on." I said, "She's alright, that's Michelle."

Slang-Yes,Lame with a capital "L"..We were drunk
