20 Halloween Fails That Will Make You Say "Boooooo"



Halloween is the best! The scary movies, the truckloads of candy, the carved pumpkins. But because there are so many elements to this spooky holiday, there's a lot that can get messed up. I'm talking disastrous treats and ghoulish-looking costumes (that aren't necessarily supposed to seem ghoulish). Unhappy pets in ugly getups and extremely terrible wigs. These Halloween fails put the "booooo!" in, well, "BOO!"

I cannot get over this. The fact that this guy looks like Alan Tudyk mixed with the face makeup and that wig?! It's almost too much to handle. He looks like a character from that candy world in Wreck-It Ralph more than he looks like Tekashi 69.

Someone put an angry-looking baby doll head on their dog and now I'm going to have nightmares for a month. This is totally something Sid from Toy Story would do. 

Pubescent Frog of Silent War

Obviously, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are trademarked, so this knockoff costume went with "Pubescent Frog of Silent War." This is like that scene in Friends where Joey replaces every single word in his letter with one from the thesaurus and it no longer makes any sense.

Cleopatra and Caesar

Oh man, she's really giving him the death glare in this picture. If I were him, I'd watch my back, if you know what I mean. Caesar tends to get stabbed there by people he once thought were his friends.

Does this... Does this mean she... Does this mean she...poops...on him? What dude would agree to be the litter box?! What woman wants to walk around all Halloween night with a litter box on her arm? I don't get people sometimes.

Eye-spectation vs. Re-eye-lty

These little eyeball candies look so cool in the wrapper, but when you take it out, suddenly it's like a regular Mento. What the what?! When I pay to munch on eyeballs, I want them to look like eyeballs!

Sexy Factory Worker

I cannot get over the fact that they called Oompa Loompas "factory workers." I mean, yes, technically, they do work in a factory. Willy Wonka's chocolate factory. Which is very different from a regular factory. 

"ONE costume, AAH AAH AAH!"

Office Halloween celebrations are the source of so much anxiety. You never want to be the only person who dressed up. That's so embarrassing. At least it looks like this is maybe a costume he can take off by the time he has to go to his team meeting.

Spooky, Tricky, Creery

Personally, my favorite thing about Halloween is creering up on people to scare them when they least expect. I also love watching creery movies, like Jeepers Creerers. My favorite tradition is gathering around the campfire and telling creery ghost stories. I just love Halloween so much! So creery!

Twerk suit

This cannot sell well. Who wants to go dressed as Robin Thicke for Halloween? He wasn't even the one twerking in this suit! I have so many problems with this gross costume that I don't even know where to begin. 

Cold paws

Poor kitty. She was pressured into this marriage and now that her wedding day is upon her, she realizes that the veil feels more like a suffocating blanket than a veil. Oh, what will she do?! 

Rotting pumpkin

All pumpkins eventually transform from spooky jack-o'-lanterns to little wrinkly old men. But if you live in LA, where the weather is warm throughout the whole fall season, this will happen to your pumpkins in a matter of minutes. And it's terribly sad every time. 

Reese's Bat

Reese's Peanut Butter Bats are so misshapen that I don't know if I would see that out of its wrapper and think, "Oh, that's a thing I can eat." It looks...dare I say it? ...fecal. Sorry. But it does!

A-lad-in a Costume

This is the cleverest thing I've ever seen and also the knockoff costume that comes the closest to just outright saying what it is. Man, those dashes are working overtime. 

Crotch grab

The scariest thing about these Halloween leggings is that they appear to be advocating for sexual assault. The placement of that hand in the crotch is so uncalled for! Pretty sure it's a zombie hand, too. I don't know if that's better or worse.

Themed costumes

What? I don't see anything wrong with this. It's the famous foursome! Ketchup, Hot Dog, Mustard, and Pinhead. You can't have any three without the other one. Plus, they're all delicious.

Pumpkin pose

I am extremely disturbed by this photo, mostly because I am fairly certain this man is wearing literally nothing other than these pumpkins. As in, there's only a gourd covering his...gourd. The pumpkin bra kills me too.

This is extra spooky because where is the "N"? It's probably hauting you. You'll see it in your dreams. You'll dart awake and there it will be in the corner of your room, just hovering. You will see that "N" everywhere until it drives you completely insane. 

Yellow Starburst

This may be sacrilege to admit, but I like the yellow Starburst. I don't mind them at all, and I wouldn't feel disappointed in the least if I got a pair of them. That being said, I understand that that is not a popular opinion, and if this picture makes you weep, I feel you. 

Sexy Mr. Rogers

Oh no. Oh no no no no. This is why we can't have nice things. Mr. Rogers was the purest, most perfect soul on the planet, and this is how we repay him?! This is a travesty to the nth degree. That hair and the tiny tie and the hot pants just make me want to crawl in a hole and not come out until Thanksgiving.
