12+ Attempts At Spooky That Wound Up, Um, Not That

Diply 20 Oct 2018

It's not always easy to be scary. Unless, of course, you look like I do when you wake up in the morning, which means all it takes is not enough sleep and too much junk food the night before.

Sometimes though, it's like the harder someone tries to be spooky, the less they actually are.

1. Being creepy is easier if you're not devastatingly attractive like these two.

I mean, the makeup and costumes are so awesome — but how can I be creeped out when I am wrestling with all sorts of other feelings over here?

2. See? These cookies were supposed to be well-crafted devilish faces, but this is much more horrifying.

Extra terror: Dip one of these in a pumpkin spice latte...then drink the pumpkin spice latte.

Super spooksters!

3. On the other hand, there are definitely costumes that maybe didn't intend to be scary, but just wound up...whew, who knows?

Although, to be fair, if she was carrying that box of Mr. Clean there's no excuse for the misunderstandings.

4. Trust me, you should be happy we're looking at stuff that was supposed to be scary and wasn't, instead of the opposite.

Whew, lad. You really dropped the ball, because this is the stuff of nightmares made flesh.

Yellow, grimy-looking flesh.

5. I asked around, and a few people thought this actually was pretty creepy.

I don't think so, though. There's just something super wholesome about it, weird face and all.

I honestly spent 10 minutes staring at that costume before I realized she looked like a Ditto.

And really, isn't Ditto the original costume party specialist? Seriously, that's the OG right there.Yes, it is.

6. I have to admit that the face is still pretty on brand, but this thicc pumpkin scarecrow is hardly spooky.

It is, however, making me wish for some kind of dance party where we all dress as pumpkin people.

7. I guess dogs make literally anything better, because I'm actually not even scared of this clown.

Maybe a little.

But I think I love dogs more than I fear clowns, so...yay?

8. Don't get me wrong, The Shining is definitely an iconic horror movie. I dig this costume a lot.

But I can't help but think it sorta loses the effect every time this dude bangs into a cupboard, or smacks himself trying to sip his drink.

But for real, I love The Shining. And I'm not the only one.

If this cat's name is Johnny, cool. If it's just super in to this movie, then...can I adopt this cat?

9. Animals are pretty difficult to outfit with creepy Halloween costumes, because animals are so pure and innocent.

Except Canada geese, but...wait, that would a terrifying costume!

10. I can't be freaked out by a costume that makes me think I'm in a video game and it's gonna sell me health potions.

11. If you were ever trying to worry me about a vampire attack, maybe it shouldn't be about Twilight vampires.

For real, if I was worried about melodramatic performances and bad YA literature, I'd just teach high school drama class.

12. This is probably the closest that a pup can get to spooking me.

But after the initial surprise, it's all aww-ing every single time. 13/10 for this heckin' spooky boi.

13. There's no easy way to say this, but my feelings on ghosts are getting more complicated by the minute.

My feelings on designer sheets, too, but that's another story.

You might have a spider-musician in your home right now.
