It’s that time of year again, my ghoulish friends! The temperature is dropping, leaves are turning, and children everywhere go to bed every night dreaming of shoving fistfuls of candy into their mouths while dressed as whatever superhero is currently dominating the box office. But lucky enough for us, the fun doesn’t stop once you grow too old to trick-or-treat. Dressing up for Halloween as an adult doesn’t have to be weird, creepy, and sad, in fact, if you do it right, it can be downright legendary. These crazy Halloween costumes will make you want to step up your game this year.

Still trying to decide on what to be this year? The following 40 Halloween costumes should help to get your inspirational juices flowing. But be warned: They’re not for amateurs. A roll of duct tape and a staple gun isn’t going to cut it. You might have to actually pull out the sewing machine this year.

That dog is totally in character. In fact, just from this picture alone, I can tell that he’s a better actor than 90% of Hollywood celebrities.

There’s just something so heartwarming about seeing a 10-year-old child smoking a cigar.

This is basically the Halloween-version of making lemonade when life hands you lemons. Or, as Forrest himself once said, “Life is like a box of chocolates…” You know the rest.

Well, this is horrifying. And brilliant. Horrifyingly brilliant.

I have a five-month-old son, and this girl nailed it. I’ve never felt more seen. Excuse me while I try to find a non-puke-stained shirt to change into.

Hey, what gives?! I’m not supposed to ugly cry over a Halloween costume! Save that crap for Christmas!

Isn’t the whole point of having children so that we can all experience our own personal mini me’s? These two nailed it.

This is basically the stuff of nightmares. Yet I can’t stop staring at it…

This costume speaks to me on a personal level, since my childhood dream was to one day obtain a jetpack and soar off into the sky on it. I now realize that I would probably burn my legs off in the process, but the dream remains.

Imagine how humiliating it would be to get denied a job from a man dressed as a hammerhead shark with a lei around its neck. You’d have to reevaluate all of your life choices.

Thanks, but I think I’ll pass on this Hershey kiss. It looks like it would upset my stomach.

My small heart grew three sizes the day I first saw this photo. That dog looks fairly traumatized, though.

Can someone start a petition to re-shoot the terrible new Aladdin movie with this goddess starring as the Genie?

This costume basically represents the entirety of my 20’s. It’s a little too accurate.

AKA, the most adorable tripod ever. Sure, you have to clean up after it and it makes all of your photos blurry, but it’s worth it.

The resemblance is uncanny! You can almost hear the “Hoo hoo!” can’t you?

In a world filled with princesses, be a garbage truck. This girl is going places. Most likely, the dump.

These costumes are impressively creepy. It just goes to show you how a few small touches can make a big impact.

I like to imagine that this little girl crawled up to every house like this while trick-or-treating. How else would you get the full effect?

I appreciate anyone who can poke fun at themselves. I’d also love to see a cop giving someone a ticket while wearing this pig nose.

Zoinks! Even the dog is a dead ringer!

Wearing this costume would also be a great way to get a subway car to yourself while taking public transportation.

10/10. Could haunt my house anytime.

Do you expect me to believe that this guy found a purple velour jacket, a silver bowtie and a top hat all in the same Value Village? What kind of magical town does he live in?!

He even perfected Jim’s famous mop top! And speaking of The Office

Identity theft is not a joke! Millions of families suffer every year!

Ah, the Tide pod. So delicious, yet so deadly.

This group of friends pick one celebrity every year and choose costumes of different characters they’ve portrayed. How fun is that?!

This costume is a whole lot of “nope”. And you thought clowns were scary already…

I would have liked the addition of some frozen Eggo waffles, but still, an impressive reproduction.

Sure, the real Bob Ross is plenty cute, but this mini Ross complete with paintbrush, paint, and a beautiful masterpiece is downright precious.

It helps if you already look identical to the person you’re trying to emulate. I could stick on a mustache and throw some aviators on and I wouldn’t look anything like Freddy Mercury. It’s almost unsettling how spot-on this is.

You can tell just from the costume alone that this guy is hilarious. I’d pay to watch you do stand-up, buddy! Or, I guess, sit-down?

The execution here is flawless. They even included the fan-favorite Tiny Head Man!

I’d vote for him based on cuteness alone! Sure, he probably has no idea how the electoral college works, but I’m willing to bet there are quite a few elected officials currently in office who don’t, either.

Sure, but did he cut off an ear? Now THAT would be commitment!

Apparently, no one could name this guy’s brilliant costume. Clearly he didn’t run into any 90’s kids on that Halloween night…

Everyone needs a sidekick. It seems as though the cat was SO over this tradition during the bat year, though.

More like “Steve J-awwwwwbs, am I right? The tiny Mac book is a nice touch.

That’s it. This Grandma wins Halloween forever. Contest over. You can all go home, folks.
