Hocus pocus, everybody focus!

Accused serial rapist Bill Cosby, formerly considered one of America's favorite television dads, is a contender in this year's most offensive costumes. By simply putting on a printed sweater made famous by Cosby himself in The Cosby Show, one can easily recreate this notorious persona.

Halloween retailer company, Costumeish.com, is now selling a Foxy Megyn Bloody Tampon Costume for $70. The costume is a response to Donald Trump's arguably sexist "blood coming out of her...wherever" comment during the first GOP debate. Just don't wear this one.
