Okay, so your brain is fried after a year full of chaos, and perhaps the mere thought of brainstorming Halloween costumes is painful enough. But before you give up and reach for something punny, tacky, or crude, a word of caution: your look may come back to haunt you.
Halloween costume fails are real, and they can happen to anyone. How can you avoid them? For starters, steer clear of outfits that use the word “sexy” in the title (ahem, like this Sexy Essential Worker, a serious no-no), and maybe don’t break out the scissors and sewing machine unless you’re actually crafty (badly constructed outfits are among the worst offenders, however hilarious they are).
Need ideas that aren’t guaranteed to fail? We’ve got plenty of 2021 Halloween costume ideas for you. But in the meantime, stay far, far away from the Halloween costume fails below.
