Not everyone can come up with a cool costume idea and then execute it to perfection like these sushi costumes.
Often, the idea is interesting, but the final result falls short of expectations.
Two buddies or a couple opt to do a tandem costume, say Bert & Ernie.
In theory, great idea.
These creepy make-up mock-ups are more a scary pairing of Nightmare on Elm Street and Sesame Street.
Also, creepy in this pic – the pink frilly bear behind them. What?
How about we double the fun and expand things to four with The Simpsons.
Lisa’s eyes are wigging me out, but I do appreciate the fact that Homer has the appropriate liquid accessory.
And even more strange is the fact that in the background you can spot a Christmas tree. Which holiday are they celebrating?
Check out a costume based on everyone’s favorite buzzing childhood game – Operation.
Look closely and you can spot the familiar red nose. Hey, there’s the broken heart and Adam’s apple hot glued to his T-shirt, however, I don’t believe my original game included that piece attached to his left thigh.
Alrighty, let’s get our geek on now.
Gather up your friends, some garbage bags, pieces of cardboard and put on your own version of Star Wars.
You read that piece of paper in the pic correctly. That’s a blue garbage can standing in for R2D2.
Break out the silverware – we’re going to go all Wolverine on you now.
That’s right. Just don’t shave for a day, use saran wrap or packing tape to bind some butter knives and a few forks to your hands and get your X on.
The next duo’s costumes are actually well done, but they just don’t realize that in six or seven years, their good and evil paradox will likely play out all over again when they’re at the mercy of the double whammy of puberty and peer pressure.
And in 2009, the year of the celebrity death, how about an officially licensed Michael Jackson costume.
