Monday Morning Roundtable: Bad costumes

miley

This week, the Heave staff was asked:

What’s the worst Halloween costume you’re probably going to see this year, and why?

Ben Kessell

Bill Cosby, because it’s probably a while guy in blackface.

Adam Cowden

Miley Cyrus, for obvious reasons.

Johnny Coconate

[insert character here] over-sexualized female costume.

Trent Zuberi

Every third girl will be dressed as MTV VMA-version Miley Cyrus and that just makes me…sad.

Meghan Bongartz

I predict that a quarter of the female population (and probably part of the male population, too) is going to transform into Miley Cyrus. All controversy aside, one Miley is more than enough.

Dominick Suzanne-Mayer

Since everyone has already touched on how bad the epidemic of flesh-colored lingerie and protruding tongues is going to be in a couple weeks, I’ll also point out that a sexy version of Sheriff Rick Grimes from The Walking Dead now exists. And like. Why? Unless it’s to correlate with the point in the evening where the wearer gets so drunk that they start ugly crying, and therein really look like Rick Grimes, this makes no sense. Without context, you just look like a hot park ranger.

Also, I want to believe that no jackasses will go as some reference to Adrian Peterson’s dead son under the “Too soon!” guise, but I don’t have enough faith in people to pretend it’s not going to happen.
