2011's Most Embarrassing Halloween Costumes: Gallery of Shame

"Piglets are adorable, but I will hate you forever for making me wear this."

Sometimes children need to be saved from themselves. I know Foster Kline, M.D. and the Love & Logic parents out there believe that kids should learn from their own mistakes, but with the many questionable costumes available on the market, sometimes you just have to step in and tell your kid, “Sorry, honey, but that outfit is going to be something you regret for the rest of your life. For realz.”

Now, if only there were Costume Police who could save children from their parents!!

Get a load of this roundup of costumes that no parent should be allowed to choose for their child, nor allow their child to choose for themselves.

I imagine what the child, all grown up and home for the holidays, might say about each of these costumes when confronted years later with a framed reminder of their shame.

  • Dolla Dolla Bills, Ya’ll. 1 of 10
    "Were you going for some kind of 'I'm so money!' thing? Because, actually it screams 'douchebag' to me. Loudly."
    No lie, you can buy it here.
  • You Dressed Me as Air Freshener? 2 of 10
    "Are you saying I stank? Thanks a truck-load, Mom and Dad."
    No lie, you can buy it here.
  • What up, Bagger Vance?! 3 of 10
    "Even Tiger Woods would hate golf if he was forced to wear this ridiculous get-up." Or, on a positive note: "Awesome job on the Rodney Dangerfield 'Caddyshack' outfit!! I was so radically cool for a baby!"
    No lie, you can buy it here.
  • For Real? 4 of 10
    "I couldn't be your 'Little Hershey's Kiss' or "Li'l Peanut"? I had to be your "Little Packet of Ketchup"?! Why did that stupid costume even exist?!?"
    No lie, you can buy it here.
  • My Love For Six Flags Can’t Withstand This Shame. 5 of 10
    "You let me walk out the door in that. Seriously? Was I doing the dance moves, too?? *groan* No wonder I didn't have any friends in 5th grade!!"
    No lie, you can buy it here.
  • Way To Show Off My Racist Roots! 6 of 10
    "Hold on a second... I wore that trick-or-treating in 2011? Why was I so obsessed with the Civil War anyway!? *cringe*"
    No lie, you can buy it here.
  • That’s Me, Mr. Straight and Narrow. 7 of 10
    "Was I really that boring as a kid? A world of movie characters and animals to dress as and I wanted to be a #2 pencil. Why didn't someone smack me?"
    No lie, you can buy it here.
  • Oh, Yeaaaaah. *Smirk* 8 of 10
    "BOO-YAAAAAH! Even then I knew I'd be foreclosing on all those loser neighbors of ours. Heh, heh, heh. *high fives self*"
    No lie, you can buy it here.
  • Yep, I Was a Roadkill Fanatic. 9 of 10
    "What...? Why...? Gah! Look at the guts hanging out! Why did I think that was so hilarious when I was 12??"

  • Ah, Yes, My WWE Wrestler Phase… 10 of 10
    "I really wish someone had told me that this Undertaker costume wasn't nearly as menacing as I thought it was. I can see now that I kind of just looked like Elvira, but gone to seed with a hat instead of a bouffant."
    No lie, you can buy it here.
