7 Halloween Costumes You Won't Believe Were Actually Invented

By Pippa Raga

In a way, it feels like the more we progress as a society, the less there is to invent. After all, we have computers so small they fit in our pockets, vacuum cleaners that move themselves, and all the nutrition of a regular meal packed into a beverage — and that's just in America. Don't even get us started on what's available in Japan.

So, as autumn rolls in and apple-bobbing grown-ups are beginning to think up their Halloween outfits, we've compiled some of the strangest costumes you won't believe were actually invented. They range from trendy to straight-up offensive, with a lot of trashy in the mix.

This list will confirm the notion that just because a concept was approved, it doesn't necessarily make the idea behind it a good one. Or at the very least, it'll leave you scratching your head, thinking WT actual F?!
