Important decision coming up for you when it comes to picking out your costume for Halloween this year because it is a reflection of your alter-ego is it not?  I can't recommend the right costume for you but I can recommend what costumed alter-ego you shouldn't be.  With that - here are some I recommend  you avoid.

Lions Coach Matt Patricia - Sure its an easy costume to pull off. Stuff a Lions hoodie with a fake fat belly to fatten yourself up, throw a Lions cap on your head, adorn your face with a fake beard and shove a pencil behind your ear and voila! You're an NFL coach with a 9 and 22 win/loss record.

Better Choice:Do yourself a favor if you're going to insist on being an NFL coach this Halloween, look toward a more menacing, frightening source like a Bill Belichick or get all Walrus-like with a nod toward Andy Reid. Either way between them they have tons of NFL wins - it'll give you more street cred.

That Tiger King Dude (or anything that has to do with Tiger King) - Although it might be tempting to emulate a man who rolls with exotic wildlife violations and a failed hire for murder plan but these are only two (of many) reasons to avoid this messy costume idea. I'm telling you, if 2020 were a person, it would definitely be Joe Exotic. Weird, strange, unpredictable are just a few ways to describe this odd dude. I wouldn't be surprised if he blamed Carol Baskin for starting the Covid-19 pandemic.

Better Choice: Try going a Joe Dirt route or even a Lieutenant Dangle from Reno 911. Both are fashion icons and I hear mullets are making a comeback...or was that mutton?

Blisters The Clown or Any Clown For that Matter - Clowns are just down right creepy. Never understood the clown thing. Seeing that fixed facial expression anywhere but under a big top setting is just inherently unsettling and seems so out of place. A fixed smiling facial feature makes me wonder what clowns are really up to.

Better Choice: If you insist on clowning around this Halloween go all out then and terrify people by being Pennywise from the movie "IT" or Batman's nemesis The Joker.
