There are a lot of types of Halloween costumes that we just don't understand, like babies dressed up as Heinz ketchup packets or cringe-worthy displays of inappropriateness. But one of the trends we're most confused about this year is "sexy" food costumes -- all of which leave us asking ourselves, WHY?
Seriously, who thought these were a good idea? Though a few are relatively innocuous (the candy dresses aren't exactly anything we've never seen before), others actually make us question whether anyone in their right mind is actually purchasing these Halloween options. What do you think of these sexy food Halloween costumes? Let us know in the comments!

This costume is both creative and fairly easy to execute well. You need some gold leggings, decorated cat ears, a tassel and some Chinese letters on your forearm. (You also get an unintentional workout from lifting your arm up and down all night.)
What could be more culturally relevant than dressing up as the Texas gubernatorial hopeful? Just remember, it's all about the pink sneakers, people.
Turn yourself into a cat/corgi/French bulldog listicle! Just print out images and tape them to your blank page body. (A Lil Bub photo or two doesn't hurt either.)
One Of The Women From "Orange Is The New Black"
Don an orange (or tan) prison outfit -- you can probably purchase something similar-looking at any store that sells medical scrubs -- and you're pretty much done. The details really make this sort of costume. We recommend fashioning yourself some flip-flops out of duct tape and pads if you decide to get crafty. This is also a great one for a group of friends to do together. And you can be super cute like the cast of "OINTB" by <a href="http://www.buzzfeed.com/skarlan/28-times-the-cast-of-orange-is-the-new-black-was-adorable-to" target="_blank">taking selfies</a> all night.
'Tis the season -- a few months early. Wrap yourself in some fake pine needles and tinsel, hang some fun ornaments on yourself and top it all off with a big star! If you want to be ironic, go as a <em>Jewish</em> Christmas tree.
A Facebook 'Like'
This is the perfect costume for someone who wants to put in minimal effort but still be funny. Wear white and blue and strap a sign or box with the printed "Like" button onto your torso. Plus, when you pose with anyone throughout the night, you're automatically "Liking" their outfit. <em>via <a href="http://www.costume-works.com/costumes_for_women/facebook_like_box.html" target="_blank">Costume-Works.com</a></em>
Rock, Paper, Scissors
A human twist on the classic hand game. You need three friends for this one and some artistic skills.
Though this outfit might be a bit cumbersome to party in, we think it's excellent. You can take a message from a <a href="http://www.someecards.com/" target="_blank">real someecard</a> or create your own topical one. <em>via <a href="http://www.costume-works.com/costumes_for_women/human_some_e-card.html" target="_blank">Costume-Works.com</a></em>
Baby North West
This one is simple. Dress up as a baby, complete with a pacifier, and then throw a fake compass around your neck pointing both North and West.
These costumes are super adorable -- and can be made with a whole lot of tulle or mesh purchased from your local fabric store or Home Depot. We recommend wearing shoes, though. <em>via <a href="http://www.costume-works.com/costumes_for_women/loofah2.html" target="_blank">Costume-Works.com</a></em>
