20 Frighteningly Funny Halloween #Fails
Halloween is one of the most creative holidays of the year, so when you have a costume to create, a party to plan and food/drinks to fashion, there’s always a possibility that a few things can go wrong. But, hey, we celebrate the Pinterest WINS as well as the #fails. Either way, you get candy, tons of fun pictures, a killer party experience and loads of Halloween LOLs.
2. Chevron Pumpkin Fail: There are times when a simple DIY is too good to be true and painter’s tape doesn’t exactly do the job. No worries, there are tons of easy no-carve ideas out there. (via Eggs & Pet Hair)
10. A Bit Too Small: Sometimes it’s hard to know which size to get for your feline friend. If you do misjudge, be a good pet owner and just take a quick snap for a #HalloweenFail. (via @winston.tacocat)
11. Last Minute Star Wars: There’s nothing wrong with waiting until the last minute to throw a costume together. But they may want to put some wheels on R2D2 if they plan on heading out anywhere. (via Imgur)
12. Starburst Disappointment: Depending on how early you start trick-or-treating, the good candy disappears pretty early. That leaves behind all of the candy that no one really wants. Black licorice, yellow Starbursts and peppermints, we’re looking at you. (via @apbeard)
18. Scary Clown: There are cute kid costumes, scary kid costumes, and then cute costumes that end up being a little terrifying. We’re pretty sure the kid is responsible for more than a few clown phobias. But hey, they probably scored some serious candy! (via Slice)
19. Nailed It: Pinterest is responsible for so many high expectations cut short. For example, these spider cookies probably should have cooled a little longer before decorating. Luckily, they’re probably just as delicious. (via No Way Girl)
