Post monstrosities we call "costumes" on Halloween. I'll start.

Anything "slutty". Girls should respect themselves a little, and I say that as a girl myself.
That and Harley Quinn, ugh.
>>
>>9634151
Oh and I forgot: Guys shirtless with a mask on. It's not "sexy", please cover yourself and act properly (they're always the kind to get drunk and be really noisy). Also dressing as genitals isn't funny, it's just cringy.

Less bitching, more bad costumes.
Spirit Halloween's ever growing anime section brings us these "officially licensed" costumes.

Spirit Halloween, it's on their site. They have store locations, too.

>>9634326
I agree, but there's other issues too. I had a friend go to one of their stores to try it on, and they reported the material was awful and not worth it. There was an anon a while ago that bought one off of Aliexpress, and had a similar issue with bad material. Holding out for something quality, I guess?

>>9634380
I just got one from Aliexpress and the material is pretty nice. I guess it depends on who they got it from.

>>9634599
Reaper looks pretty decent. I wish the D.Va wasn't just a morph suit and had parts for the shoulders/necks. Tired of seeing this type of D.Va cosplay.
>>
>>9634380
I got one of the jumpsuits at Spirits and it wasn't that bad quality imo, but there's always horrible quality control issues with Halloween costumes so I'm not shocked if there's more shit ones than decent ones.
Def needs to be chopped in half and altered a little bit though. It looks ridiculous as a jumpsuit.

For actually being used as Halloween costumes, these aren't bad at all. It's just lazy cosplayers wearing them at cons that will suck.

Brush it over your face, put glasses on, be cousin itt.

Or go with a GoT character or LoTR or some other medieval type thing and don't be lazy and buy the halloween store trash.

Looking for a Halloween costume and ran into this cool Aquaman costume, pic related. Anyone here have experience or know if MTXC is a good company to order from? Also are they a Japanese company?

As for the costume itself, is spandex something I want to be wearing while bar hopping?

i know the idea is to be condescending and all, but for your average store-bought halloween costume, these are actually pretty solid

with some black makeup behind the mask and a neck cover the reaper one doesn't look bad, and D.VA is literally just the bodysuit anyways

Yea honestly, I'm not sure what some people here expect from $30 mass produced costumes. They're not like a typical cosplay hand-made over dozens of hours to be worn seriously at a convention.. They're just fun little costumes for adults to wear while getting drunk with their friends on Halloween or for kids to wear while trick or treating. Most people don't care about costumes as much as many of us on this board do.

Are these supposed to be "sexy" versions of Zelda, or did they just make the skirts short for kicks? I'm not against sexy costumes but it's just one more "did they even look at the source material? quip.

Can't wait for all the trash Pennywise costumes this year
>>
So I want a bunch of the bad sexy Halloween costumes for sex reasons so actual quality matters a lot less. I'm trying to work out when would be the best time to buy them. One might think that they would be cheaper after Halloween with everyone marking down to sell off their excess stock, but on the other-hand: It's not like they can't just save them and sell them next year and you have to stay competitive at around the time everyone is selling costumes. Should I be looking to pick these up before or after Halloween?

>>9645740
Grab the afterwards. The pop up shops will discount them and be out of the rented spot like, a few days after Halloween.

Kairi´s keyblade (destiny´s embrace) actually looks pretty good, just a little short, and its only $25. Makes me salty as fuck i spent like 100 hours making mine (and like $60 in materials)

I am trying to think of a costume that is recognizable for normies and work appropriate, but not super common. I thought Rei (TFA not Eva) would be good, but it looks like that might be very popular based on party store type costumes I saw online. Do you guys think Rei would be okay or can you think of a good costume for me? I considered Disney princesses but that seems a bit uncomfortable to wear at work. I am a smaller female with an hourglass shape and don't want to show any cleaveage
>>
>>9647500
Also: I'm a lawyer at a large firm if that helps. It ruins a lot of costumes since I might have to meet with clients the day of our party
>>
>>9647500
I don't think anyone would mind an extra Rey, but since the new movie's costumes are coming out people will be wearing those more than the TFA version. What about Jyn, or one of Leia's less common outfits?
>>
>>9647503
Do Judge Dredd. I'd feel pretty confident if I thought my lawyer were Judge Dredd.

I like the idea of jyn but it doesn't seem that recognizable? Maybe if I get someone else to be Chewbacca or something

It's owned by Spencer's Gifts, aka the family friendly store selling stoner gear and sex toys. I used to work at the flagship Spencer's in SJ, it's goddamn bullshit and you're not supposed to actually acknowledge that the dildos are in fact dildos ("massagers") and Spirit is run very much the same way.
