There are a few popular costumes this Halloween. Iron Man is big, as well as anything Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead. I always look forward to Halloween, because humanity is so creative. In the last few years, costumes seem to have become so unique and specific. I’m the giant boulder from Raiders of the Lost Ark. I’m Britney Spears’ dignity; see how she doesn’t have me anymore. It makes me wonder what accomplishments mankind could achieve if we dedicated this same amount of thought to world hunger.
On the flip side, there are a few ensembles that might not be so popular this year. Costumes that are bound to get your picture tagged as “worst dressed” on Facebook. I’ve sat down and compiled a list of some of these said costumes in what I call, “Wade’s Halloween Do-Not-Wear-List.” Use this list as a guide when choosing your Halloween wardrobe, or end up living a holiday of regret.
Wade’s Halloween Costume Do-Not-Wear-List
13. Giant Foam Finger
Someone at the party might be dressed up as Miley Cyrus.
12. The iPhone 5c
This costume will only end being too expensive and just disappoint you.
11. A Couples Kris and Bruce Jenner Costume
Unless you plan on ending things, then go for it. You know, it might actually be a creative way to lighten the mood.
10. The NSA
Eavesdropping on people’s conversations is a sure way to get you kicked out of the party.
9. A Wrecking Ball
8. Any Character from Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters
Within a few minutes, everyone will forget they ever saw your costume.
7. Eli Manning
Every time you try to pass off candy to a trick-or-treater, someone will come out of nowhere and take it.
6. Homeless Smokey the Bear
The national parks are back open.
5. The Movie Gravity
The only way you’ll be able to do the costume justice is if you make everyone see you in 3D.
Everyone knows it’s not a real costume…right?
3. A Giant Teddy Bear
2. The Declaration of Independence
This is kind of like the giant foam finger. If Nicolas Cage comes to the party, things are going to get CRAZY.
1. A Vegetarian
Only dress up as a vegetarian if you feel obligated to let the whole party know you’re a vegetarian.
