Every year at Halloween, we drown in another wave of timely, topical, terrible costume ideas. It’s time to choose this year’s worst.


I took one for the team and picked through this Gizmodo piece on 2019’s Most Awful Halloween Costumes to cull a group of contenders and let me tell you: it wasn’t easy. I chose the four I found to be the most offensive (spoiler alert: they’re all “sexy”) so that I could also duplicate the poll on Twitter, but feel free to sound off if you have a personal least-favorite. Here are my picks. (All images via Yandy)


Beyond Burger – Applying “sexy” to the timely and topical has now moved into the realm of meatless fast-food, apparently.

Sexy Scoops – Not really where my head was when I was watching the most recent season of Stranger Things, to be honest.

Sexy Pennywise – Right, because the embodiment of pure evil and eater of children needs to be made “sexy.” This is true violence.

Nicest Neighbor – This shouldn’t be allowed to exist.
