I’m sure we’re all familiar with how crazy and downright disturbing some adult Halloween costumes can get. (Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman couples costume?? Seriously??) The reality is that it’s very easy for some kid’s costumes to cross the line – instantly becoming a poor choice simply because it’s being worn by a child.
I believe the thing that makes the following costumes so questionable is that it’s the parents who are making the decision to dress their children this way. Sure, a baby Hannibal may seem clever and cute; but do you really want your child to look back on pictures of himself dressed as a character who ate people?
The following 11 costumes for kids will more than likely blow your mind. You tell me: are these costumes simply good fun, or are they crossing the line?
The Worst Halloween Costumes for Kids
This may be an "essential" to you, but please don't pass this nasty habit on to your child... even if it is just by way of a costume.Marlboro Baby
Although undeniably cute, there are many who believe that this costume is a little insensitive; and, is in a way, mocking an unfortunate situation. Whether you agree with that sentiment or not, I personally wouldn't want my child having this as an image of themselves. Let's aim a little higher!A Hobo
This isn't exactly the best way to teach your child about death. Not to mention the fact that this is just plain gross.Road Kill
Kid Lil' Wayne
Lil' Wayne is a misogynist with a filthy mouth and a pretty nasty addiction. (Can we say syrup?) He is SO not someone I would want my child to emulate.Kid Lil' Wayne
Why?? Just, why??? This is wrong on so many levels.Suicide Bomber
There's nothing funny about the "pimp game" - especially when child trafficking is running rampant across the world. This costume just isn't for kids... or anyone else for that matter.Baby Pimp
Whether for artistic purposes, (as was the source of this photo) or out of just plain ignorance, there's no valid reason why you should dress your child up as a non-fictional evil dictator.
Baby Hooters Girl
I'm not one to knock anyone for their hustle - I mean, if Hooters is getting you through college, then more power to you; but isn't she a little young to be sporting fake boobs?
*palm slap to forehead
I think it's a little late for this.Trojan Condom
Kids are pretty gross at this age in general. Please don't give other children ammunition to do something disgusting to your child while in this costume. I mean, out of ALL of the costumes in the world to choose from, we couldn't think of anything better than this?A Toilet

Wait... Wasn't this show about drugs??Walter and Jesse from Breaking Bad
