Women's Halloween Costumes Based On Male Characters That Really Don't Need To Exist

Attention Halloween costume stores! Women are not allergic to pants.

However, you wouldn't know that by looking at these 13 women's costumes based on male TV and movie characters.

If you're a lady who wants to dress up as a non-female character for Halloween, you'd better be a fan of pleated skirts, sky-high heels and shirts that don't obstruct your cleavage (even if that character is Ron Burgundy).

  • 1
    Ron Burgundy From 'Anchorman'
    For when wearing pants or just dressing as Veronica Corningstone is out of the question.
  • 2
    Sheriff Rick Grimes From 'The Walking Dead'
    Not even the female characters on the show would wear heels or mini skirts.
  • 3
    Beetlejuice
    ...If he were a pirate's girlfriend.
  • 4
    Harry & Lloyd From 'Dumb & Dumber'
    These costumes are fine from the waist up, but they just had to go with the go-go boots.
  • 5
    Any Ghostbuster
    The hot pants and cleavage are ridiculous enough, but the most insulting part of this costume is probably the baseball hat.
  • 6
    V From 'V For Vendetta'
    Who needs a Guy Fawkes mask when you've got short shorts and thigh-high boots?
  • 7
    'Star Wars' Characters Other Than Princess Leia
    If you want to be a sexy "Star Wars" character, you can't go wrong with Princess Leia and her gold bikini. If you want to be Chewbacca, you should probably at least wear pants.

    Willy Wonka
    You know what wasn't missing from Gene Wilder's costume? A pleated skirt.
  • 9
    Kato
    The Green Hornet's sidekick, ladies and gentlemen.
  • 10
    Harry Potter
    She would have dressed up as Hermione but that would require wearing a sweater.
  • 11
    'Wild Thing' From 'Major League'
    For the woman who wants to dress up as a Charlie Sheen character in a movie from about 25 years ago, but doesn't want to wear a full shirt.
  • 12
    Freddy Krueger From 'A Nightmare On Elm Street'
    Don't worry, they put Jason in a dress, too.
  • 13
    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle
    If this is Donatello, I really don't want to know what the female version of Splinter looks like.
