The 2008 Halloween fashion trends are heavy into "movie characters" and "gruesome," but there are still plenty of just plain funny costumes for adults. This year, the Funniest Adult Halloween Costume awards are being given in 10 categories, among them: Cleverest Cadaver Costume, Sexiest Linguine & Meatball Costume, Hairiest Feminist Costume and Smartest Dummy Costume.
1. Hairiest Feminist Costume
The winner of the Hairiest Feminist Costume is Ms. Anita Waxin'! For those who don't remember the parodies of the feminists during the 1970's, the feminist who refuses to shave anything is up near the top of them. The manly, muscular portrayals were, and still are, popular caricatures of women who can think and speak for themselves, especially among sexists. But, as for the winner of the Funniest Feminist costume, aka Anita Waxin', she's just a spoof, and I hope we can all laugh with her! Find her here.
2. Largest Wedgie You'll Ever Want To See Costume
Funny or gross or both? The Atomic Wedgie Costume makes you wish you didn't look, huh? That's why it's great fun for Halloween! Find it here.
3. Cattiest Cat Lady Costume
Who hasn't known a true cat lady? One for whom her 40 or so cats were her whole raison d'etre? Cat ladies, at least stereotypically, develop idiosyncrasies like sloppiness, here suggested by an old bathrobe and an unkempt appearance. (I could do this one!) But cat ladies are lovable, as this costume is! The Crazy Cat Lady is for sale here or here..
4. Best Double-take Bigfoot Costume
Exactly why this Bigfoot doesn't make it to scary, I don't know. Something about the mask, I think, is just funny. And doesn't it look almost like Bigfoot is waving? Anyhow this is a pretty neat costume that looks pretty flexible as to its intentions. The Big Foot Costume is available with his partner, the sexy Misses B.C. Babe Costume, here .
