I haven’t dressed up for Halloween since 2016, when I painted myself cerulean in an homage to the ever-mystifying Blue Man Group. But Halloween costumes are a way of life for some revelers, and I suspect the pandemic won’t do much to change that. Behold: the goofiest snack brand Halloween costumes, all perfectly suited for celebrating in the comfort of your own home. Please, for the love of God, stay home.
Slip into this malodorous Zombie Skittles box
A lucky few can don this six-foot-wide Zombie Skittles pack featuring a “Zombie Mode” button that releases the smell of “rotten zombie” and encourages passing fleshlings to keep their distance. The bad news: The deadline to enter to win one of these bad boys was October 23. Failing to catch the deadline was obviously a journalistic error of ours, but it does seem bogus that Skittles would limit this genius getup. Here’s hoping that we’ll have more stinky costumes next year—pandemic or no pandemic.
Dress your furry friend as a pup in a cup
Consider Dunkin’ on the haters
