Halloween is awesome for parents because it’s pretty much a free pass to embarrass our kids. And what better way to do that than by dressing up in costumes they can’t even identify?
1 | The Face on a Milk Carton
Not only is this one super irrelevant, but it’s also a good one to use to segue into the “Don’t talk to strangers” conversation.
You need to grab onto those teaching opportunities whenever you can, am I right?
2 | The Etch A Sketch
“Ohhh, I get it, Dad. You’re the front of a red bus, right?”
3 | The Yellow AOL Instant Messenger Man
“Oh, sure. A yellow walk sign!” Don’t worry, AngelLUV82, your legacy still lives on in our hearts.
4. A television set
“Ohhhh, you’re a microwave!” Do kids ever turn dials anymore? Just wondering.
5 | An Original Gameboy
“That’s not what a Gameboy looks like.”
6 | Pac-Man
“You’re some sort of bird…?” YEAH, if birds were really awesome at eating dots and killing ghosts, AM I RIGHT?!
7 | A Flip Phone
If this isn’t showing your age enough, you can also go for the slightly more complicated, rotary phone.
Note: always, ALWAYS call it a number sign instead of a hashtag.
8 |The Tamagotchi
They’ll have no idea what this tiny-screened egg is, but you’ll know how cool you are. And that’s all that matters.
9 | A Furby
“My mom? Yeah, she’s just bad at making owl costumes.”
