Halloween Costumes Straight from the Runway

I’m not a big fan of the fashion industry. For me, it revolves around designers selling overpriced clothes made from sweatshop workers in South Asia so they can design clothes that nobody would want to be caught dead in. I mean seriously, who the hell is going to wear the stuff you see on the runway during Fashion Week. Seriously, what these models wear on the runway is simply ridiculous that you’d have to be crazy to wear such clothes on the street. Now I understand the need for designers to express themselves but c’mon, the whole point of fashion is to design clothes for people to wear. The stuff you see on the runway nowadays just makes the fashion industry a joke. The designer label clothes cost too much and are too impractical for normal people to wear. And don’t even get me started on body image and women. Besides, when it comes to buying clothes, I really don’t give a shit about the designer or brand. Designer labels have no relevance on my life. I just care whether it comes cheap and whether it’ll last me a long time. And I can care less whether any designer brand items I own are knockoffs or not. Not to mention, I’ve known quite well that higher prices don’t mean better quality products. Just look at a Consumer Reports manual on cars. Last year, I had this idea of using runway fashions as Halloween costumes but for various undisclosed reasons, I didn’t go through with it. However, this year things are different since I already did a post on costumes and my Halloween posts haven’t done as good as I thought, save the one on pumpkin dioramas. That one did better than I expected. Still, we can spend this October having a little fun with high fashion by seeing them as inspirations for Halloween costumes. Here are some Halloween worthy runway fashions you might not want to miss. Costume names will be subject to my observations.

  1. The feline dominatrix from the anime version of Cats
Of course, she wasn't allowed to bring her cat o' nine tails and handcuffs with her. Yeah, runway policy is strict about these things.

2. The Mad Hatter on Casual Friday

Now the top is fine and something I can actually wear. Not sure about the bottom though. But still, looks like something you can picture the Mad Hatter wearing on his day off.

3. Vibrator/Video Game Console

Yeah, having an outfit resembling male genitalia won't get my mind out of the gutter on this one. Seriously, I think whoever designed this must have a substance abuse problem.

4. Escaped inmate from a mental hospital

Let's just say the straitjacket is really not a good sign about her personality. Seriously, she's likely to be dangerously insane as far as we know.

Sure hate to know the effectiveness of that eraser. Still, she looks more like a No. 2 from the waist down.

Wonder what artist she's wearing. You'd think she'd go with the easy choices like Leonardo, Michelangelo, Raphael, or Donatello. I mean those guys have Ninja Turtles named after them.

9. Lion

For some reason, this doesn't remind me of the ferocious king of the savannah. Also, I'm sure lions aren't black. But I see you have to go with what you have.

13. Snakes having sex

If you want to know how snakes have sex, this is only a mild representation. But if you see any photos, it's exactly a bunch of males getting on top of each other in order to mate with a female.

21. Modestly dressed Lady Gaga

Then again, almost any of these costumes can be of Lady Gaga in one variation or another. Of course, seeing Lady Gaga in this makes her look normal in comparison to the other stuff she's worn.

  1. Now that I can look at these outfits in another perspective, ie. as Halloween costumes, they don’t seem so bad. In fact, they should just market these as costumes for Carnival or a masquerade party and I would actually want to see a runway show. Thanks for the laugh. This was very clever.
