Halloween is fast approaching, which means a people are scrambling to cook up affordable and creative costume ideas. In theory, dressing up for Halloween should be a breeze, because the costumed tradition is rooted in fun.
In practice, however, putting together a dream costume can turn into a stress fest given how expensive and time consuming the process can be. Sometimes the best cure for these moments of holiday-induced stress is a trip down memory lane for perspective.
Even the most die-hard of Halloween fans has a few horrifically embarrassing costumes in their past, and sometimes the best inspiration takes form in remembering how far you've already fallen, since you can only go up from there.
In celebration of all the bad costumes of yore, Jimmy Fallon started a #MyWorstCostume hashtag round-up, so the entire internet can bask in humiliation together.
