It's October 1, which means that Halloween season is officially on. Haunted houses are starting up, Zombie Pub Crawl tickets are selling fast, and get-together invites will be showing up in your Facebook inbox in bulk at any moment. Ironically, much like a high-fashion party, what you wear to a Halloween celebration can make or break your evening. So, choose your look wisely.
|Would you wear any of these looks to a party?|
The following are examples of some of the oddest costumes on the market this year. There's pop-culture references, apathy T-shirts, men dressed as raw chicken, and, of course, failed attempts to be sexy. Come take a look.

Sesame Street Oscar The Grouch Adult Costume
Because nothing says "sexy" like a woman dressed as an angry, garbage-dwelling creature from a children's program. Right?
Guys who are looking to get laid on Halloween should avoid costumes like this at all costs. However, if you're a 12-year-old boy, this getup will make you the hero of the party. Though it's not pictured, the product description states that a "poop cigar" and hat are included. Comedy gold!
Urban Outfitters' Animal Costumes
If you have ever been in an Urban Outfitters, then it shouldn't surprise you that these glorified pajamas will set you back $80. However, if you're set on going the furry route this Halloween, you can easily achieve this look by taking a 15-minute trip to Target or Ragstock for some long underwear, an animal headband, and some Wet and Wild cosmetics for less than $20.
Sorry folks. If you're going to do Miley Cyrus at the VMAs (and you know there will be at least two of these at each party this year), you're going to have to do more than put on a T-shirt. This is one of the few costumes where you really do have to go skimpy to make it work (twerk?).
Nicky Mouse Romper
Meet Minnie Mouse's cousin Nicky. Nicky was really into the late '90s raver scene, and never quite moved past that era. These days, Nicky can be found at festivals like Burning Man and Coachella taking molly and Instagram selflies.
Forget Pacman, this kid probably doesn't even know what a Nintendo Gamecube is. He shares a b-day with the Xbox 360.
