15 Pop Culture Halloween Costumes That’ll Make You Look Stupid

You know guys have it pretty damn rough when it comes to Halloween. We have about 3 options for costumes.

#1 Something Scary

#2 Something Funny

#3 Something Cool from Pop Culture

The first option is pretty self explanatory; ghosts, zombies, monsters. The second option is also easy to get, take a joke and run with it; black eyed pea, pimp, or fat stripper. But the third option is where we run into some snags.

As a kid, Halloween was our opportunity to be something we couldn’t be in real life, if only for one night. And you know what, we ran with it. If we wanted to be He-Man, we were He-Man. But, as adults, the expectations change. It didn’t matter as kids, because no one had a good memory, and we were all focused on the candy anyway. But, as adults, our cred is on the line, and if you wear the wrong Halloween costume, you’re done for. Forget dating, forget that cool new job, forget friends!

Below, The 15 Most Pathetic Excuses For Pop Culture Halloween Costumes. Long story short, don’t try any of these!


1.) Optimus Prime – Huge movie and even bigger cartoon series. Optimus Prime and the other Transformers were more than meets the eye, not you though, you’re obviously gonna be a dipshit in this.

2.) Batman – It’s going to be one of the hottest outfits this Halloween, like it has been for 20 years or so…and it will still suck. You might make the excuse that you’re classic Batman; no one will buy it.

3.) The Joker – Our prediction is that 2 out of every 5 people this Halloween will attempt to be The Joker…key word, attempt. Unless you’re paying someone to do your make up, you’re just a clown.

4.) Capt. Jack Sparrow – This isn’t just a pirate outfit, it’s the official Jack Sparrow pirate outfit.  Unless you are Johnny Depp, just stick with plain ol’ pirate.

5.) Hulk – Now we finally know the reason the Hulk is so pissed off, he has the worst Halloween costume on the planet. And flesh colored hands and feet.

6.) Spider-man – We love the movies, we love the comics, but you couldn’t pay us enough to wear this outfit out of the house. Looks more like pajamas.

7.) Darth Vader – The outfit as a whole really isn’t that bad, but there’s two big problems. First Darth had gloves, and second he didn’t ever wear casual slacks and wingtips.

8.) King Leonidas – If you don’t have the muscles, please don’t try and be a Spartan for Halloween, fake ones don’t count. It doesn’t matter how “real” it looks.

9.) Aragorn – Oh, that’s a really awesome Frodo Baggins Hobbit outfit! Wait… oh you’re Aragorn, didn’t he have a bigger sword?

10.) Shrek – That confused look on Shrek’s face? He just can’t believe someone could look like such an incredible huge jackass.

11.) Stewie Griffin – One of the funniest characters on television, Stewie brings laughter into the homes of millions. You’ll also cause laughter, but it’ll be because people will make fun of you.

12.) Eric Cartman – The biggest little potty mouth in South Park has his own Halloween costume. If you wear it, you’ll literally be the sand in the vagina of any party you go to.

13.) Lucky the Leprachaun – This costume comes complete with the Charms you’ll find in Lucky’s cereal. You’ll need each and everyone if you hope to be lucky enough not to get eggs thrown at you.

14.) Fred Flintstone – He’s been in cartoons and movies, he has his own cereal and vitamins, Fred Flintstone has it all, including a ridiculous Halloween outfit modeled after him.

15.) Master Chief – One can only guess at the amount of carnage Master Chief would inflict on the world were he to see this costume. You’ll probably have to settle for the wedgie your buddies will give you.


Well, you’ve been warned. If you value your life as you know it, avoid these and the other ridiculous costumes on sale this Halloween, and go for something more traditional.

The 15 Sexiest Halloween Costumes Based On Pop Culture

This Halloween, women will spend one day doing what they refuse to do 364 days out of the year. Dressing up in a sexy outfit. And a lot will choose to depict one of their man’s boyhood fantasies; Ariel from the Little Mermaid and Cheetara from The Thundercats being a couple good examples. And the truth is, there’s a good possibility they’ll do it completely wrong. Like say you want to go after one of the Hottest Super Heroes ever, Wonder Woman.

Whether it’s the wrong color hair, not enough leg showing, or just plain old boring; there’s a right way and a wrong way. We’re here to show you how to do it right with this handy Pictorial Guide To Sexy Women’s Halloween Costumes.


Princess Leia from Star Wars: Return of The Jedi

The original hotness, Princess Leia was the reason most boys reached manhood back in the day.

Princess Leia from Star Wars: A New Hope

It’s okay Luke, if Princess Leia was our sister and we didn’t know it, we’d have kissed her too.

Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz

There’s just something about the innocent demeanor of Dorothy that makes you think of the girl next door, you know, the one that is a total hottie.

Rainbow Brite

Probably the least like the original, in this case it’s a very good thing, the giant sized head Rainbow was sporting isn’t very sexy at all.

Daphne from Scooby Doo

Daphne was the only reason any of us bothered to watch Scooby Doo… talking dog, pfft; hot redhead, yes!

Princess Peach from Super Mario Bros.

The number one reason we spent hours bouncing Mario over pits, mushrooms, turtles, and lava.

Alice from Alice in Wonderland

The movie was all based on some kind of weird dream Alice had, we’re having some kind of dream too.

Hermoine from The Harry Potter Movies

This outfit is way sexier than the Hagrid costume.

She-Ra Princess of Power

Sure, you told everyone we watched She-Ra because of the cool villains, but it was all because of her.

Cinderalla from Cinderella

We never understood how no one could tell how cute she was while not dressed up.

Chun Li from Street Fighter 2

You probably never wanted to play with her on the game because she was a girl, but, didn’t mind watching her fight.

Snow White from Snow White and the Seven Dwarves

It’s easy to see why 7 undersized men would be willing to slave over this girl.

Jessica Rabbit from Who Framed Roger Rabbit

Let’s just say that Roger was the luckiest sumbitch in the animated world.

Jem from Jem and the Holograms

Your sister probably watched this everytime it was on, and you stayed in the room and pretended to play with G.I. Joe’s.

Tinkerbell from Peter Pan

There’s just something about her attitude when she gets pissed off at Peter Pan that makes her such a turn on.
