It’s fall season again, and Halloween is just around the corner. For most people, Halloween is the one holiday where they can express themselves through creative costumes and makeup. Stores like Halloween Express and Party City are jam packed with creative costumes and decorations, but have you ever looked at the names of the costumes you’re buying and realized how weird the names were?

Halloween costumes get more and more extravagant each year. With recent movies like Suicide Squad and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice; we can expect to see Halloween costumes like “Crazy Clown girl” or “Night bat” ridiculous names like these will never fail to make you laugh.

Names like“Wonderful babe costume” aka Wonderwoman or “Fierce Feline” aka Catwoman; are currently hanging on the racks of stores world wide. Don’t these names sound closely familiar to the actually characters? These costumes aren’t just called this for jokes and giggles, they actually have a meaning to why they call them this. There are strict licensing laws on trademarks, costume manufacturers need to find new ways how to sell these costumes without getting sued. So they come up with some ridiculous names for pretty simple costumes.

So next time you’re trying to pick out your next Halloween costume, remember the costume you picked is really just a knock off of the original. Don’t forget to have a good laugh before you buy it.
