17 Halloween costumes with terrible names

From Sponge Babe to Hairy Relative.

SOMETIMES THE NAMES of certain Halloween costumes need to be changed for legal reasons.

The new costume names are at the mercy of how creative some poor copywriter is feeling that day. Here are some of the costumes that fell victim to bad name changes this year.

1. Evil Dummy

The classic horror character that we all know and love.

2. Army Fever

Not sure what the original name was supposed to be, but Army Fever sounds like a euphemism for Syphilis.

3. Golden Princess

As seen in Golden Princess and The Beast.

 4. Super Mario Green Costume

Sorry Luigi, you’re now known as the Green Mario.

5. Better than being known as The Plumbers Mate.

6. Rockstar Housewife

Freddie Mercury’s legacy is Rockstar Housewife.

7. 80s Pop Tart

Is this supposed to be Cyndi Lauper or a toasted breakfast snack?

8. Cruel Diva

Everybody knows the Cruel Diva who hates dogs.

9. Sponge Babe

What’s interesting about this costume is the fact that it could only be considered ‘sexy’ by someone who was attracted to Spongebob.

10. Marathon Woman

1) What a coincidence that this woman has half of the digits from the UK’s Directory Enquiry service on her t-shirt. 2) Those shoes definitely are not suitable for a marathon.

11. Chocolate Man

This is like if one of your grandparents tried to tell you the story of Charlie and The Chocolate Factory but they forgot Willy Wonka’s name. “So Charlie gets this golden ticket right, and he gets to go visit… What’s your man’s name? The chocolate man. Whatever. Anyway.”

12. Old School Rapper

When you think of old school rappers, MC Hammer is probably not the first name that comes to mind.

13. Hairy Relative

We probably all have a hairy relative in fairness. But they probably don’t look like Cousin Itt from The Addams Family.

14. The Manic

OK wait. Is this supposed to be Jim Carrey in The Mask? Or Nigel Farage on the one year anniversary of Brexit?

15. Wolf Bait

PastedImage-65218 Costume Corner Costume Corner

There’s definitely no copyright problems with using the words ‘Little Red Riding Hood’, so there’s no excuse for naming this costume ‘Wolf Bait’. This woman is going to be torn to shreds by wolves.

16. 60s Gigolo

PastedImage-22025 Costume Corner Costume Corner

Was Austin Powers even considered to be a gigolo?

17. Guerrilla Revolutionary

No need to explain what this one is supposed to be. The description of the product says it all:
