Whether you’re planning to stay in and dress up or (socially-distanced) get together with friends, here are the best ways to show off your favorite game franchises with the worst Halloween costumes possible.

Disguise Women’s Creeper Classic Adult Costume (Amazon, $33.49-$65.53)

Disguise Women’s Toad Dress Costume (Amazon, $45.16-$65.53)

Adult Cuphead Costume – Cuphead (Party City, $39.99)

Look, I know Cuphead invaded my dreams for a bit when I was playing the actual game. But this…this is just taking things a bit too far.

Deluxe Kingdom Hears Sora Costume for Teens/Adults (Wholesale Halloween Costumes, $58.90)

It wouldn’t be a year without another dubious Sora costumes, and for Kingdom Hearts fans, it’s the best worst look yet.

width="248"

NEWCOSPLAY Unisex Adult Animal Purple Dragon Pajamas Halloween Costume (Amazon, $25.53)

This costume really gives me more questions than answers. First; why not just say that it’s a Spyro costume? Second; why is Spyro so wide? And third; who would actually wear this?

width="425"

Fishstick Skin Costume for Kids – Fortnite (Party City, $49.99)

Clearly every child wants to dress up like a demented fish for Halloween, so this should fit the bill nicely.

Awkward pajama onesie or even more awkward Yoshi costume? You decide!

width="319"

Nintendo Super Mario Brother’s Yoshi Women’s Costume (Wholesale Halloween Costumes, $51.90)

…on second thought, I don’t think Yoshi fared much better here with this costume, either.

width="469"

Freddy Fazbear Half Mask – Five Nights at Freddy’s (Spirit Halloween, $12.99)

Unsurprisingly, this may be the most legitimately terrifying costume on this list. So if you’re looking to completely terrify children (and probably your loved ones) for the rest of your life, this should fit the bill nicely.

Child Inflatable Creeper Costume – Minecraft (Party City, $69.99)

This other Minecraft Creeper costume on our list seems ideal if you’re looking for your child to not be able to see, walk, or have any idea of their surroundings on Halloween.

width="425"

Joyful Controllers Couples Halloween Costume – Unisex Adult Video Game Outfits (Amazon, $39.99)

The ultimate in nerdy couples costumes; let’s just hope that Joy-Con drift doesn’t become too much of a problem with this one.

width="319"

Minecraft- Steve Prestige Child Costume (Wholesale Halloween Costumes, $48.90)

Look, it was cool finally getting Steve in Smash Bros. and all, but in real life he sticks out even more. And why is Steve so thicc?

Collectible Anime Cutie Adult Costume (Wholesale Halloween Costumes, $58.90)

Pikachu has never looked sexier…?

width="420"

Adult Merc Gamer Skin Costume Kit (Party City, $59.99)

Boys Mario Yoshi Ride-On Costume – Super Mario Brothers (Party City, $39.99)

Look, we understand that this costume is pretty hilarious, but please; don’t subject your child to this. I mean, just look at it:
