Weird Halloween Costumes: Have We Reached Peak Zombie?

Have we reached peak zombie?

It might seem that way based on the weird products that are being marketed for Halloween this year.

Seems every other item has a zombie connection. There are zombie bottle openers, zombie poop candy, zombie versions of the American Gothic painting and even a chiazombie.

Don't get us started on the Zombie Hot Dog costume.

We could have done a whole list of zombie-themed Halloween products, but that would have left out the many other tasteless costumes and products that definitely qualify as weird.

Now, if you'll excuse us, there's an inflatable sex doll costume we have to try on.

    This cheeseburger mask is perfect if you're doing a haunted house geared toward vegans. If people ask what you are (as if it's not obvious), tell them, "I am what I eat."

    You can't tell from the photo, but a giant phallus (supplied) pops out of the strategic opening of the Junk Mail costume. Certainly, wearing this costume in public will not affect people's opinions of you whatsoever. People just aren't that judgmental. Not.
  • Swanky Talking Pornstache

    If you're too shy to sexually harass women at Halloween parties, let this talking mustache do your (very) dirty work for you. Press a button and the mustache says something really tacky or really tasteless -- or both. A word of warning: "It wasn't me, it was my mustache" may not be an acceptable defense.

    If you really want to trick trick-or-treaters, treat them to these bizarrely-flavored gumballs. The apple cobbler flavor is decent, but the roast beef gumball is just as vile as you'd imagine.

  • Candy Urine, Saliva And Blood

    Usually, candy is the least scary thing on Halloween. However, candy versions of bodily fluids are sure to gross out even the most jaded candy seekers. To be fair, the cherry-flavored blood is pretty good.

    "Gee, Madge, I just can't come with an idea for a trendy yet lame Halloween costume. Everything seems creative and clever." "Why don't you go as a hashtag?" "Hmm, sounds dull, but how do I do it?" "You put a giant hashtag symbol on your body." "That's it? How lame is that?" "I know! Perfect, right?" "Yes, it's the perfect costume to express my apathy with Halloween and life in general."
