Halloween Costumes That Need To Stop

HizkiailNovember 8, 2021

School Girl

This has got to be one of the laziest ideas we’ve seen so far. Dressing up in a school uniform and being a school girl is… well, how is it different than any other day? Maybe you don’t have a school uniform and you’re doing this in an effort to make a costume out of it, but it just feels so uncreative. We’re not sure how we feel about an anime-style school girl either.

The bottom line is don’t do it. People will literally think you’re dressed up like a normal person. You want to be the one who wows with a costume that has people asking questions.

Vague Decade Costumes

Okay, scratch that last one. THIS is the laziest attempt at a costume we’ve seen so far. Grabbing whatever tie-dye you have in your closet and going out as a “hippy” or some other arbitrary fashion statement isn’t really a costume at all, it’s a theme. Maybe if you’re trying to save some money we can let it slide, but if the goal is to be cool then you can do a whole lot better than this.

There has to be something else you can do that doesn’t involve the clothes that you already wear on a daily basis. Worst case, borrow some things from a friend.

The Witches From Hocus Pocus

It’s one thing to be a witch for Halloween (pretty cliche if you ask us) but it’s another thing to be the witches from “Hocus Pocus”. Yes, it is our favorite movie to watch on Halloween as well, but that’s precisely why we want to advise against it. There are not only a lot of people who do this, but it really doesn’t stand out from other witches and we’re going to watch the movie later, so you don’t have to be hasty.

Honestly, though, if you’re really itching to be this or any other Halloween character, it’s your choice. We just think you can stand to stand out from the crowd and do something new.

Suggestion 1: The Tiger King

If you think this show is too old to do a costume for, think again. We believe that this outfit deserves a second shot considering the fact that we’ve been put through the runner because of the pandemic. While it might not be as relevant in a social context anymore, we believe that it’s still fresh enough in people’s minds to deserve another shot at being this year’s Halloween costume.

And if you’re not keen on being Joe Exotic, then you could probably go as Carole Baskin, though that might be harder if you aren’t that good at impersonations.

Suggestion 2: Mr. Nimbus

If you really want to do something from Rick & Morty (because let’s be real, this show is super relevant right now) you should consider being Mr. Nimbus. Many of the other characters are overdone and while Evil Morty and Bird/Pheonix Person might also be a good choice, Evil Morty is still a Morty costume at the end of the day and Bird Person is a bit harder to do and less colorful if you want your outfit to wow. ​

There are also tons of other characters to choose from, but this character really made a splash (pun intended) at the start of the season. Pretty much any character that’s not Rick and Morty and the immediate family is a good choice.

Suggestion 3: Scarlet Witch And/Or Vision

This is not only a great option but also the perfect thing to be if you want a couple’s costume. These two characters became extra successful in part due to the super-popular show Wanda Vision (as well as obviously being a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe) and would be the perfect costume for this Halloween. It may take a lot of makeup and outfit work to get the job done, but it’s well worth it.

And if you haven’t watched Wanda Vision yet and you’re a big fan of Marvel, then you have to go see it. Then you’ll understand why it’s a good time to dress up as them.

Suggestion 4: Squid Game Grunts

This is a great option whether or not you’ve watched the show (which you most likely have) and it works especially well if you are a group of three as there are three tiers of grunt to choose from: There are the circles which are the lowest ranking guard, then there are the triangles at mid-tier duties, and then there are the squares who seem to manage them all.

Alternatively, you can also dress up as the man in the cool mask who appears frequently, or you can dress up as the less popular VIPs that show up (though they’re gross, so unrecommended).

Suggestion 5: Literally Any Anime Character

Some of the most popular shows this year have come from overseas, specifically from Japan in the form of anime. The upcoming second half to one of the most popular animes of all time, “Attack on Titan” is due for release this January and we’re sure there will be tons of people going as their favorite character from that show. Others include “Boruto: Naruto Next Generations”, “Jujutsu Kaisen”, “My Hero Academia”, and much, much more.

You might even be so inclined as to go dressed up as Sora from “Kingdom Hearts”. Though this technically doesn’t count as anime, he was developed by Disney and the popular JRPG maker Square Enix 20 years ago this year and was recently announced as the final character for one of the most popular games out there “Super Smash Bros. Ultimate”.
