'Sexy Factory Owner' and other depressingly lame Halloween costumes

So, what have you dressed up as for Halloween? A Sexy Factory Owner you say? Right.

If your Halloween costume begins with the word 'Sexy' you're already losing.  Follow up with 'Factory Worker' and, well, expect a few bemused faces and snarky nose wrinkles.

They're sexualising your childhood hero Willy Wonka guys and that makes us sad.

It's not the worst effort we've seen flogged on the world wide web, however.  Perhaps you've invested in the Sexy Pizza Rat costume?

Combining sexiness with the viral story about a rat that took its pizza slice on the Subway in New York takes the whole costume endeavour another sorry step towards lamesville.  Thanks for that one Yandy.

Virals are where its at this season, however.

You can get dressed up as Grumpy Cat in a Grumpy Cat Jumpsuit from Amazon which covers your entire body, including your face, in a giant babygro with unrecognisable grumpy cat face adorning the top. 

Or how about the dentist who killed Cecil the lion in Africa earlier this year?  Hilarious, no?  You can purchase a bloody lion head and bloody dentist robe for a mere €140 from Costumeish.

For those who'd like to flaunt their loved-up coupledom there's the 'Key to Her Heart' costume from Etsy.  He wears a big t-shirt with a key on front while she wears a bit t-shirt with a heart and lock.

Sigh.

We're particularly perturbed by the Sun and Moon Outfit also available on Etsy which consists of a brightly adorned bra and garter belt. No knickers?  Nothing to hide your modesty?  We assume you wear it over something, no?

Apologies to anyone who has invested in one of these efforts.  (Seriously, though, what were you thinking?)

He's got the key to her heart. Sigh
