It’s officially Halloween season, and you know what that means: it’s time for fall-themed snacks, scary movies, and lots (and LOTS) of costumes! Unfortunately, not all of us have a ton of cash to drop on festivities, especially with so many other holidays just around the corner, but that doesn’t mean we’re completely out of luck — we just have to get a little bit thrifty.

Enter knockoff costumes.

There are plenty of companies out there willing to sell you costumes that aren’t quite what you are looking for, but are close. In fact, some are so close that you can’t help but laugh at what they come up with. Buckle up, friends, because the good people of the Internet found some of the most hilarious knockoff Halloween costumes of all time.

1. The ditzy protagonist from your favorite 90s rom com “Notionless”

2. This extremely versatile costume that lets you be anything you want to be

3. Perhaps my favorite throwback of all, “Video Game Guy”

4. But let us not forget my favorite literary character, Stripey Dude

5. Don’t even get me started on Juice Demon…

6. Or this, uh, sexy factory worker costume

7. What gets you more in the Halloween spirit than Creepy Husband?

8. Never forget Hungry Rebel Girl

9. Ah yes, the classic Mischievous Worker

10. BLUE SPEED MOUSE

11. Never forget the “A-Lad-In A Costume” costume

12. Or this official costume of Kansas

13. When I was a young girl, I always wanted to be Hermany Grinder, the top student at Chogborts

14. Who else wants to be a Purple Musician this year?

15. And yet, somehow, this one wins above all else

This is me letting you go

If there’s one thing we all need to stop doing, it’s waiting around for someone else to show up and change our lives. Just be the person you’ve been waiting for.

At the end of the day, you have two choices in love – one is to accept someone just as they are and the other is to walk away.

We owe it to ourselves to live the greatest life that we’re capable of living, even if that means that we have to be alone for a very long time.

“Everyone could use a book like this at some point in their life.” – Heather
