The good, the bad and the ugly of 2017 Halloween costumes (Report)



Halloween is approaching fast, so it’s time to get your pumpkins out and start planning what amazing, witty and creative costume you’re going to wear. Consideration of a) how easy they are to make and b) how many likes you’ll get on Instagram for your work of costume art are important, but it’s also worth thinking about how not to be a total dick.

Whilst most of us are celebrating the holiday with good, family friendly fun – a few have produced amazing, questionable and downright disgusting. Here’s our run down of this years offerings:

The good

Pickle Rick

It was bound to happen. As soon as the Pickle Rick episode of Rick and Morty aired it basically pre-empted hundreds of inspired costumes. This amazingly crafted outfit is particularly good, and if you want to feel inspired here’s how they made it.

The Night King

There’ll be countless Daenerys and Jon Snow costumes, but there’ll also be a precious few that’ll go all out and come as the Night King. Need inspiration? Look at basketball player Carmelo Anthony’s excellent version.

The bad

Sexy Poop Emoji

Look – if you want to dress up as a sexy cat/librarian/pizza rat, you do you; but some things are better untouched: especially the laughing poo emoji.

Fidget Spinner

Come on millennials, we’re better than this.
