Five Halloween Costumes You Should Avoid

Every Friday, I’m compiling a list of five things that meet one criterion. “What is that criterion,” you ask? Well, it’s going to change every week and you’re just going to have to try and keep up.

Five Halloween Costumes You Should Avoid (and Tips on How to Pick a Better One)


When it comes to Halloween costumes, guys don’t traditionally plan that far ahead and this behavior frequently yields unimaginative, lame, and cheap costumes. And while I always like to help when it comes to playing pretend, I cannot sit down with each and every one of you to produce a great idea that will help you get the most compliments on October 31.

So, for everyone struggling to figure out a costume idea, here is a textual map for your trials – be sure to avoid the following five massive potholes on the road to costumed glory .

5. Any non-specific “zombie” version of anything


You know how 93% of all female Halloween costumes boil down to sexed-up versions of normally non-sexed-up things? Like a girl can’t just be a simple police officer or maid or teacher, she has to eliminate most of the clothing normally associated with each of those vocations and then rationalize that they are “a sexy cop” or whatever . Well, “zombie” is the male version of “sexy” when it comes to Halloween costumes.

Guys who have no ideas but actually want to CREATE a costume generally choose a relatively pedestrian costume like “businessman,” inject some bloody carnage and suddenly, they feel perfectly content with their costuming self, as they are now a “zombie businessman” (whatever that is). This behavior is embarrassing for the guy in question and everyone who comes into contact with him.

SOLUTION: if you’re willing to put the work into transforming something ordinary into something extraordinary, at least put that creativity into doing something unique – go as one of the Marvel Zombies or something .

4. The Joker


This advice would’ve been even more prescient last year, I realize. However, based on the sheer number of fan-made Joker costumes photographed at comic conventions in the last 12 months, the amount of people still paying tribute to Heath Ledger's final proper performance has not decreased at all .

While the character is extremely popular, the degree of difficulty on this costume is off the charts. Just from a wardrobe perspective, look at some of the fan-made versions of it online and tell me why you believe you will be able to succeed at finding a replica of a custom, tailored purple suit (amongst many other elements of the get-up) where so many others have completely failed .

On top of that, there’s the make-up/hair aspect and… look, I’m just going to tell you now: the odds of you ever pulling that off in any sort of accurate fashion are slim (again: look at other fan attempts to recreate it). Combine that with the clothing-you-will-not-be-able-to-find and when it comes to a character this recognizable, if you don’t do it complete justice, i...
