The Most Tasteless Halloween Costumes for Children EverOctober 19, 2012 - 7:36 am |
Halloween is right around the corner, and you know what that means: parents trying to get clever and dress up their kids as something totally inappropriate. We’ve collected the best ones here for your viewing pleasure, and by “best” we mean “costumes most likely to involve child protective services.”
Terrorist in Training
Ah yes, what better way to teach a child the harsh realities of the world than to make Islamic terrorism a fun Halloween game. The suicide bombs are a nice touch, but what really sells this picture is the mother wearing a hijab (which is the slightly less oppressive version of a burqa). Great parenting in action, folks.
Dope Costume, Dude
Hey, let's be clear. The DoubleViking staff may or may not enjoy a jazz cigarette from time to time. Still, is it really that bright to dress your kid up like a pot plant? It's like saying, “Hey, we know what you're going to spend your time doing once you get to high school. It's cool, man.”
It's almost hard to believe a young kid would make a costume like this. Not because it's horrible, but because this little whippersnapper was probably still picking up the phone and being mistaken for his mother at the time that Christopher Reeves had his unfortunate accident. Maybe he's actually dressed up as “Super Irrelevant Boy” or “This Joke Is Boring Now Man”.
This little monster is about to commit genocide.
In his diaper.
But no, seriously, dressing your child up as Adolf Hitler is probably a bad idea.
Haha! Look! Homeless people are FUNNY! Great life lesson, mom and dad. You should get mugged. The dirty crack baby doll is a particularly exquisite touch, as are the shopping bag clothes. You can practically smell the urban hellscape on this child, his dreams long forgotten. A finishing touch would have been a beer can, but I guess the parents didn't want to go “too far.”
