16 Awkward Adult Halloween Costumes

By Kristen Howerton |

You know what’s the best thing about being a grown-up during the month of October? Not having to find a Halloween costume and dress up for this thing any longer. Finally, the societal pressure to conform to costumed silliness is gone. Because unless you are 1) performing in a theater, or 2) performing in a movie or television show, or 3) working at a theme park, or 4) attempting an undercover sting operation, or 5) under the age of 12, there’s really no reason for you to be dressing up as anything other than yourself. Pretty much ever. There, I said it.

That’s an easy-enough thing to write, I guess, but you’re probably the kind of reader who wants evidence. OK, then. Click through the gallery of terrible adult Halloween costumes below. Here’s your proof.

    Those were hilariously horrifying! There DO seem to be a dearth of good costumes for those who neither want to go the OMGSEXXY route or who would rather not look totally ridiculous. Luckily, there is sewing.

    I am still laughing at inflatable horse.
