It’s time for another, super phoned in edition of Fuck Mondays, Soph originally had this one but some shit came up (more poop references!) so I’m doing this one last minute.

This post is probably more for me than it is for you so I can show people these costumes later, but whatevs, if you haven’t seen these you’ll totally thank me. They’re in no particular order and I’ll admit that I slightly rewarded creativity in my choices more than “nailing it”, but nailing it still counted. There is no democracy here, only opinion. Every year there’s a million Jokers, Batmans, Rorshachs and Star Wars characters and some of them are awesome, but I prefer it when people think outside the box with their costumes.

Also, all the photos link directly to the reddit post so if you’re a redditor you can bestow even more upvotes to these already heavily upvoted submissions. Spread the karma bitches.

10) Angelina Jolie’s (Drunk) Baby

This would probably be number 1 if this list had an order. Combining creativity and “nailing it” together into a kickass fucking costume. Combined with making Angelina Jolie look like the worst mother ever by pouring a beer down her baby’s throat and you have a winner.

9) Richard Harrow from Boardwalk Empire

Man, fuck the guys dressed up as Freddy or Jason. Fuck whoever is Ghostface from Scream or Heath Ledger’s Joker (that movie came out years ago). This would win scariest costume at the Halloween party in my mind.

8 ) Holly Golightly from Breakfast at Tiffany’s

I know what I said earlier, but this one made the list solely on the merit of nailing it. There I go, lying again. This was equal parts nailing it and equal part my enormous timecrush on Audrey Hepburn.

7) Yahtzee from Zero Punctuation

A lot of this costume is hinged on being able to speak really quickly with an Australian accent, assuming he can pull that off, he probably had an amazing evening of nitpicking and complaining about other people’s costumes.

6) Thomas Bangalter from Daft Punk

 The costume kicks ass to begin with, the LED lined suit is just bonus icing on the cake. It’s a shame he didn’t have a partner to complete the duo (at least that we saw). Hopefully he knows this guy.

5) Princes Darth Vader

This is sort of amazing. It’s the sort of thing that I could see an (awesome) daughter saying, not really thinking it would happen, let alone that it would look so awesome. “I wanna be Princess Darth Vader daddy (or mommy)!”  Fucking epic win.

4) Oogie-Boogie from Nightmare Before Christmas

Mr. Oogie Boogie is amazing, you’ve all seen the movie, just deal with it.

3) Hexadecimal from Reboot

Again, if she was partnered with Megabyte it’d be even better, but still, Hex scared the shit out of me as a child. Also, I love when people dress up in costumes that are awesome from my childhood, fuck dressing up as Avatar or shit from a movie that just came out. Reward my pop-culture filled latch-key-kid youth and you’re a better human being for it. (See previous entry as well)

2) Business Cat

Dressing as a meme is tricky business, and there were tons of people going as rage faces this year. This guy though, this guy. Dressing as cat is traditionally the worst costume at the party. It’s also usually for sluts. Dressing as Business Cat is awesome, putting one of the better jokes the meme has up behind you as part of the costume is amazing.

1)  Mia Wallace from Pulp Fiction

Another sweet combination of nailing it and creativity. Dressing up as Mia Wallace is easy enough, get the right hair cut, baggy white shirt, black tight jeans, voila! Covering yourself in blood and having a syringe sticking out of your fucking chest puts you over the top in terms of an awesome costume.

Anyhow, there are tons of other costumes that I could’ve put on this list, these are just my favorites. Hopefully this will inspire you not to suck at costumes next year. (I’m looking at you “Hobo Costume” guy).
