The good, the bad, and the ugly

Talkin 'bout Halloween costumes here, folks. If you've received a invitation to a costume party, or if you have kids who crave candy from strangers, you may end up in this gallery next year. If you have a photo of memorable costumes from years past, send them to me and I'll post an update. CAUTION: Some of the following links may be disturbing. They disturbed me!


Good costume: Wolverine, but was it worth all that work?

The Ambiguously Gay Duo looks pretty... ambiguous.

The long saga of how this guy built a Dr. Octopus costume and entered a costume contest. Lots of pictures.

Guys might like to take a look at these costumes you can buy.


From Retrocrush, the most often-cited collection of Bad Halloween costumes.

Terrible Halloween costumes.

Stories about one man’s bad Halloween costumes, and he's had quite a few.

This guy was really LOOKING for a bad costume. Yes, he found it.

Inflatable sumo costume, for the dork who doesn't have to drive, dance, or feed himself.

Back by popular demand, The Parade of Unfortunate Star Wars Costumes.

And even MORE bad Star Wars costumes.

Good or bad? You decide. Its certainly lewd and rude!


The worst Halloween costumes ever. A tie between this little boy and this little girl. WHO would DO this to children?

Some Halloween Costume Jokes

The door bell, rings, and a man answers it. Here stands this plain but well dressed kid, saying, "Trick or Treat!"
The man asks the kids what he's dressed up like for
Halloween. The kid says, "I'm an IRS agent." Then he takes 28% of the man's candy, leaves, and doesn't say Thank You.


It's Halloween and this woman has nothing to wear. She puts a sheet over her and sticks horns on it and goes to work.
A co-worker asks her what she is dressed as.

She replies, "Bull Sheet".


A couple was invited to a swanky masked Halloween Party. She got a terrible headache and told her husband to go to the party alone. He being a devoted husband, protested, but she argued and said she was going to take some aspirin and go to bed, and there was no need of his good time being spoiled by not going. So he took his costume and away he went. The wife, after sleeping soundly for one hour, awakened without pain and as it was still early, she decided to go the party.

In as much as her husband did not know what her costume was, she thought she would have some fun by watching her husband to see how he acted when she was not with him. She joined the party and soon spotted her husband cavorting around on the dance floor, dancing with every nice chick he could, and copping a little feel here and a little kiss there. His wife sidled up to him and being a rather seductive babe herself, he left his partner high and dry and devoted his time to the new stuff that had just arrived. She let him go as far as he wished; naturally, since he was her husband. Finally, he whispered the usual proposition in her ear and she agreed, so off they went to one of the cars. Just before unmasking at midnight, she slipped away and went home and put the costume away and got into bed, wondering what kind of explanation he would make for his behavior.

She was sitting up reading when he came in and asked what kind of a time he had. He said, "Oh, the same old thing. You know I never have a good time when you're not there."Then she asked, "Did you dance much?" He replied, I'll tell you, I never even danced one dance. When I got there, I met Pete, Bill Brown and some other guys, so we went into the den and played poker all evening.

"But you're not going to believe what happened to the guy I loaned my costume to......."


Lady Astor was giving a costume ball and Winston Churchill asked her what disguise she would recommend for him. She said, "Why don't you come sober, Mr. Prime Minister?"


A man with a bald head and a wooden leg gets invited to a fancy costume ball. He doesn't know what to wear to hide his head and his leg, so he writes to a costume company and explains the problem.

A few days later he receives a parcel with a note. "Dear Sir, please find enclosed a pirates outfit. The spotted handkerchief will cover your bald head and with your wooden leg you will be just right as a pirate." The man thinks this is terrible because they have just been very politically incorrect by emphasizing his wooden leg, so he writes a very rude letter of complaint.

A week passes and he receives another parcel and a note which says, "Dear Sir, sorry about before, please find enclosed a monks habit. The long robe will cover your wooden leg, and with your bald head you will really look the part." Now the man is really annoyed since they have gone from emphasizing his wooden leg to emphasizing his bald head. He now writes the company an extremely rude letter about being politically incorrect.

The next day he receives a small parcel and a note which reads: "Dear Sir, please find enclosed a jar of caramel. Pour the jar of caramel over your bald head, stick your wooden leg up your ass, and go as a candied apple!"

And as a bonus, a few truly weird prize winners that showed up in my inbox. (Thanks, Joe!)

Thought for today: I bet living in a nudist colony takes all the fun out of Halloween.
