Dear readers, we are full into October now. Any day now you’ll awaken out of a apple cider donut and pumpkin beer (don’t even get me started on this “all pumpkin everything” mania. That post is coming. SOON) haze and realize that you have a limited amount of time to find a appropriate outfit for your Halloween barcrawl/fraternity rager/night in jail.
As always, Shikagoland is here to help.
Culturally insensitive/historically inaccurate costumes: the hallmark of a post-racial America
Every year I am mind blown at how many “native american” costumes I see out and about. Princess Hot on the Trail and Chief Wansum Tail continue in that proud and storied tradition.
Chinese Gentleman. Because stereotypes about submissive Asian women just don’t get it done anymore.
This Confederate Soldier costume will come in REAL handy at a historical re-enactment…or Paula Deen’s Halloween Party.
This Parade Rasta Mon costume was renamed because Confused College Freshman From the Suburbs wouldn’t fit on the package.
Yes, this is just your standard “sexy” historically inaccurate Roman chick goddess whatever. But the fact that its called Remember the Trojans (this warrior always has time for fun, even though there are battles to be won) just adds another level of ICK.
When mocking based on gender and ethnicity aren’t enough, the “Going Outta My Mind” goes that extra mile. Mental illness is HILARIOUS.
A mail order bride. Because sex trafficking? Also HILARIOUS.
Sexy skunk. Sexy bear. Sexy Penguin. Sexy raccoon. Sexy giraffe.
Sexy. Skunk. Like. This is happening, America.
Because you can put sexy in front of anything and call in a costume these days
Sexy candy. And the girl in the Nerds dress has on glasses. Cause shes’ a nerd! Get it!? Hurr durr
Sexy high fructose corn syrup.
Sexy art supplies. Although since they have this dress in lots of colors, if you were into that kind of thing, this would make an excellent group costume…until some dudebro tried to rub on your to color himself.
Sexy children’s toy.
Sexy undead bride.
Sexy dead thing.
I’m so bored.
Terrorists and oppressors make SICK Halloween costumes
Your dad didn’t mind.
Penis humor. How original.
I once had the misfortune of being at a party where someone was wearing this costume. The only people who ponied up to the breathalyzer? Other dudes. So. Yeah.
Ok. I’ll admit it. I laughed at this one. I’ll allow it.
Couple costumes….because you’re stuck together until New Year’s Day at least. Might as well make the best of it.
You don’t want to be friends with these people.
I’m assuming from the fuzzy filter and the model’s glazed expressions that this is a play on Edward and Bella and their demon spawn and…I approve. Its like…everything. I want to be friends with these people. Amazing.
This is supposed to be Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown. She’s dead you assholes.
But its not all bad.
Costumes that don’t suck
Possibly the cutest clown costume I’ve ever seen.
One can never go wrong with Jem.
This is…its hot. If you wore this to a party I was at I’d make out with you.
Probably. I’m just saying.
A perfect combination of awesome costuming and nostalgia. If you didn’t lose hours of your youth playing Mortal Kombat til your fingers were sore then I just don’t want to know you.
I have never seen a A League of their Own costume before but now I want to buy this and wear it every day. With all my friends.
NO. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
