Knock-Off Costumes…Love how they get by the Copyright Infringement Laws
When you can’t afford the real deal or the Halloween store has knock-off versions of popular costumes for Halloween…What is one to do? Buy it.
If you’ve been shopping for BUDGET Halloween costumes for your kids . . . or, be honest, YOURSELF . . . you’ve seen how off-brand Halloween costumes dance around trademarks to sell knock-offs.
There are “Stranger Things” costumes under the name “Unusual Events” . . . and “Game of Thrones” costumes under the name “Kingdom of Battles”. And here are some of the other amusing costumes people have seen:
1. A Michael Jackson mask called “Plastic Man,” referencing plastic surgery. Even better, there’s a “not for children” warning on the label.
2. A “Missing Boy” costume that looks a LOT like “Where’s Waldo”.
3. An “Evil Midweek Cutie” costume that’s clearly Wednesday from “The Addams Family”.
4. “A-Lad-In a Costume” outfit, that’s obviously “Aladdin”.
5. A very questionable “Trans Boy” costume, which is SUPPOSED to be an innocent play on “Transformers” . . . I think. (You’d be better off with the Spider-Man-inspired “Web Slinger Boy”.)
6. A “Boy of the Rings” costume, which looks very Hobbit-y.
7. A “Governor of Tasteville” costume, which will have you all set up to host a variety of Food Network shows.
8. A “Dark Angle” costume that spells ANGEL as ANGLE.
9. A “White Clam” costume where adults can dress as a can of White Claw.
10. And a “Little Factory Worker” costume, which is obviously an “Oompa Loompa” from “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”.
