Do you have pics? If so, share your thoughts in our comment section and send a link to the photos so we can add them to the blog.
toilet1. Maybe this is suitable punishment for a potty-mouth child, but imagine if his name is John.

cop2. Fishnet stockings, short hemline, handcuffs — is she going for the underage stripper look?

whoopebaby3. Oh the humiliation of one day having to answer the question: “And what was your first Halloween costume?”

sumo4. Political incorrectness aside, this costume screams giant heated marshmallow gone bad.

sexyred25. The name on this costume designed for tweens? “Sexy Little Red Riding Hood.” Enough said.

trashOK, so maybe this one isn’t as bad. It actually made me kind of laugh. But no way would my son ever dress up like this (a trash can). — from Susan V.

alien_chest_burst_babyFound this one on www.wtfcostumes.com. The baby’s expression says it all. (Note: It’s a rip-off from the movie “Alien.”) — from TMA

    My mom dressed my twin sister and I as a toothbrush and tube of toothpaste when we were eight because my dad’s a dentist. Sometimes “cute” is just plain humiliating.

    Oh … my … God! Do people actually buy these? Maybe I’ll keep a camera by the front door tonight, just in case someone shows up in one of these…

    My daughter dressed up in a costume similar to the cop one — when she was 20 and going to a college party. Even then, I thought the costume was too revealing. No way she would have worn it as a tween.

    These are hilarious. Too bad none of them came to my door for Halloween. I could have used a good laugh.
