14 Costumes No One Wants To See This Halloween

Handmaids and Pennywise have this year, and this year only.

Posted on

1. Rick Sanchez

Honestly, I would avoid Rick and Morty altogether. After Szechuan-Gate, the fandom needs a time-out. But if you must...

Alternative: Any of the ~million~ other existing puns.

My Edgar Allen Poe Dameron cosplay #cvg2017

Don't steal this one, either. You can think of your own.


3. General Hogwarts Student

We get it, you own a Hogwarts robe.

4. Harley Quinn

For how much people seemed to hate Suicide Squad, they sure like wearing this costume.


5. While we're at it, the Joker, too.

6. Basic Ron Swanson / Via

You're not going to beat this makeup work anyway.


8. Trump

Unless you're an adorable doggo, it's just obnoxious.


9. The Sanderson Sisters

Oh, is Hocus Pocus your favorite Halloween movie?

Alternative: Grab two friends and dress as Kathy, Bette, and SJP's other iconic characters.

Buena Vista Pictures Distribution, Inc. / Via, Paramount Pictures / Via, HBO / Via

This may be the best idea I've ever had.

10. Zombie Dead Celebrity

Note: This costume was done pre-death, which is OKAY.

Alternative: Just pay homage by being a non-zombie.

RIP, Carrie. We miss you dearly.


11. Daenerys Targaryen

Daenerys Stormborn of the House Targaryen, First of Her Name, the Unburnt, Queen of the Andals and the First Men, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Breaker of Chains, and Mother of Overdone Costumes.

12. The Belchers

We all love Bob's Burgers, but if you haven't done the basics yet, you missed your chance.


Alternative: Literally anything else.

When in doubt, be a sad hotdog.
