Top 10 worst Halloween costumes for 2010

Jahidist Mask

Last year, these two young guys came to my door, one of my last groups of trick-or-treaters.

I didn’t get the costume on the left at the time. Maybe it’s a jihadist, a costume I found on one of the dozen or so lists of the worst Halloween costumes this year.

Here are my top picks for the 10 worst adult costumes for 2010:

  1. Crouch-oriented costumes for men
  2. Scanty Indian, detective, pizza delivery person, clown, taxi driver, real estate, and firefighter costumes for women.
  3. Lady Gaga meat dress
  4. Sexy couple costumes, such as the bun in the oven, Adam and Eve, and the plug and socket
  5. A giant baby, Raggedy Ann and Andy, Sponge Bob, or Bert and Ernie from Sesame Street
  6. Austin Powers
  7. Ball and chain
  8. Jihadist
  9. Scantily clad Star Wars characters other than Princess Lela
  10. Sexy working girl costumes
