It's that time of year again — the moment when we all realize we didn't get a Halloween costume yet. And luckily, a whole industry exists to sell us ready-made versions of popular characters. Here are the weirdest, (allegedly) sexiest and most random new costumes for sale in 2014!

Note: This year, I tried to be a bit more discriminating and not pick on costumes that were basically okay-looking. A lot of the licensed movie and TV show costumes looked sort of acceptable, even if you could tell they probably wouldn't look that hot in person. But to win inclusion in this feature, it had to be either kind of strange or inappropriate. Or both!

All costumes from Spirit Halloween, unless otherwise noted.

Random Fantasy Characters, Including a Swordswoman and Two Witches.
