So we’ve all been there, it’s the day before a Halloween party and you don’t have a costume. You frantically search the cupboard for something. You contemplate dying your hair green and painting a lipstick Joker smile on your face like everyone else but you want to make a statement, you want something a little different. So your only option is the op-shop (thrift shop). Admittedly, the last minute dash to the op-shop is often a catalyst for some of the best costumes but all too often it’s rushed and comes off incredibly half-arsed and awkward unless you’ve used the diy costume guides at Costumet.
The other story is that you’ve been planning the costume the whole time and there’s just no excuse for how crap it is.
So for your viewing pleasure we’ve scoured the depths of the Internet and curated some the most awkward Halloween costumes ever donned. Enjoy!
Case and point: half-arsed Iron Man complete with sticky tape detailing.
‘Won’t the other kids give me shit for this costume?’
‘If only I had worn one,’ said Dad.
I hope this is Zangief from Street Fighter…
There it goes, the last shred of dignity this man ever…Ah who am I kidding, this guy lost it years ago.
Goodbye childhood, it was a pleasure.
‘Don’t worry I’ve got this costume in the ham-bag’.
Not sure if this is a Halloween costume or a window into the depths of a demented acid binge.
I see what he’s done there.
‘You coming to this party, man?’
‘Is the bakery still open?’
‘Yeah I guess, why?’
‘I’ll be there soon.’
Suitably awkward, perfectly tactless, great one to end on.
