Vote for the ones that you'll see the most at parties, or play a drinking game take a shot every time you see someone in these costumes this year. If you bought a 2 liter of Mountain Dew and a prom dress and you're going as Honey Boo Boo or if you're going to wear a track suit and a medal and look annoyed all night, then this list is a warning to you: everyone has thought of these annoying Halloween costumes.
Go the extra mile and think of something original this year so you don't end up going as something you'll be embarrassed to explain to your kids. And if you are, at least make it original. Avoid going as 2012's version of the Nolan Joker.
Avoid the embarrassment of being the sixth Bane or Pregnant Snooki to walk into the party and take note of this list of annoying, out-done and common 2012 Halloween costumes that are neither clever nor necessary.
