The Internet’s Seven Worst Music-Related Halloween Costumes

In the rush to put together The Perfect Halloween Costume (That Isn’t Sarah Palin Or The Chick Who Carved The B In Her Face), some of you might choose to peruse the offerings of some of the Internet’s costume merchants. And some of you, in this time where pop music seems to land somewhere between “public TV pledge drives” and “the TV Guide crossword” on the pop-cultural radar, might even want to theme your costume themed around some sort of music in-joke. We here at Idolator are here to help you fashion the right pop-related getup, so in the interest of performing a public service, here are seven outfits that you should pretty much avoid at all costs this Halloween. Even if you’re really in need of a last-minute costume on Friday.

7. ’80s Pop Star

Unless that star is Julie Brown, in which case you’re excused.

6. “Adult Slipknot Jumpsuit”

At $44.99, this pretty superfluous jumpsuit is $15 more than any of the masks it’s designed to complement. PT Barnum lives!

5. “Adult Midget Rocker”

See, you put your real feet in the “foam amplifier with attached boots”. No, really.

4. Courtney Love (for kids)

Oh sure, the page claims it’s Alice In Wonderland, but that eyeliner? Those shoes? That pigeon-toed stance? You can’t fool me, Halloween Express.

3. Rock Out With Your Cock Out

Because it’s not as funny as Longuini And Meatballs.

2. Amy Winehouse

Last year’s joke. Besides, she’s taking her fashion cues from M.I.A.’s clothing line these days.

1. Riot Girl (for kids)
