The 13 Presidential Candidates' Halloween Costumes

Halloween was this weekend, and all the presidential candidates dressed up to appeal to the voters who will decide their fate. Of course, being politicians, all of them had to get into even scarier personas than the ones they usually wear. Don't worry though, there was no flip-flopping, all of their costumes fit nicely into their policies and campaign trail behaviors. Let's take a look at the candidates and their costume.

1. Ben Carson as Mad Scientist


Actually, I'm sorry, Ben Carson didn't dress up this year.I thought he was an insane doctor for some reason. My mistake.

2. Hilary Clinton as Frankenstein

Hilary Clinton's costume, Frankenstein, is the pieced together parts of dozens of other liberal candidates of the past, combined together into one unstoppable monster.

3. Jeb Bush as a Ghost

Jeb Bush is all about ghosts. He's haunted by the specter of his brother and dad. Come to think of it, so are the rest of us. Great job on the costume!

4. Marco Rubio as Teen Wolf


Marco Rubio went as Teen Wolf because he's the youngest candidate, he's adorable, and his campaign is as shaky as Michael J. Fox.

5. Martin O'Malley as Witch

Martin O'Malley lovew witches, just loves them. In fact, not only did he go as one for his costume, he's looking for some real ones. He needs them to cast a spell to make everyone forget about Clinton, Sanders, and that he was mayor of Bltimore.

6. Chris Christie as Zombie

Looking for inspiration for his presidential campaign, Chris Christie loves anything that can come back from the dead.

7. Carly Fiorina as Freddy Krueger

She's got a lot in common with Freddy. Both of them were memorably fired.

8. Lindsey Graham as Creature from the Black Lagoon

I don't have a sarcastic jibe for this one. I just think there's a strong resemblance.

9. Rand Paul as Slender Man


Like Slender Man, Rand Paul is adept at blending into the background, creeping out people who see him after forgetting he was there. Plus, he likes to pretend he's tall.

10. Rick Santorum as The Blob

Both Rick Santorum and the Blob are from Pennsylvania. Both Rick Santorum and the Blob wish it were still 1958.

11. Ted Cruz as Pinhead.

Ted Cruz is a pinhead. Oh, and his costume is Pinhead from Hellraiser.

12. Bernie Sanders as the Devil

You see, socialism, like the Devil, has a bad reputation that isn't accurate. At least that's what teenagers, college kids, potheads would have you believe. Besides, a deal with the devil is the only way Sanders is beating Clinton.

13. Donald Trump as Donald Trump

He didn't forget to get a costume. He chose to go as himself.


There they are, the 13 presidential candidates Halloween costume choices. Now we can look forward to next year, when all but two of these candidates will go as disappointed people.

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?

There's a reason why the Addams Family have become icons of the American cartoon pantheon (although having one of the catchiest theme songs in television history doesn't hinder them).
