It has been said that Pinterest is where all good things go to die. If you're looking for an adorable baby Halloween costume on Pinterest, you might be surprised at what you find. These strange baby costumes aren't fit for trick-or-treating, but they will give you a good laugh.

I get it. It can be hard to think of the most epic costume imaginable for your baby's first Halloween. On top of that, you have to deal with the Pinterest mom-petition coming from all the other moms in your playgroup. In this cutthroat world of baby costuming, you may decide to try your hand at something new — something DIY and totes unique to prove you tried really hard.

Most of these baby costumes fall into the category of "what were they thinking." What may have started out as a great idea turned into something weird along the way.

1. Angry pumpkin


If you're going to dress your baby like the Great Pumpkin to greet trick-or-treaters, there are so many better ways to do it.

2. Baby doll


He does look like a doll, but this hilarious gag will last all of five minutes before CPS gets called.

3. Biker baby


If this "Pinterest fail" doesn't make you uncomfortable, you have some soul-searching to do.

4. Charlie Brown


Did you forget it was Halloween because of your busy #momlife? Just use an old eyeliner to draw a squiggle and some eyebrows on your baby's forehead and hand him a stuffed Snoopy prop. BOOM.

5. Hooters baby


This is just… bad. At least her parents drew the line at flesh-colored pantyhose.

6. Homeless toddler


This costume is very classy and politically correct.

7. Old lady baby


This baby costume is awkward — in a good way. If you can convince your toddler to wear a wig, you deserve to eat all her candy when she falls asleep at 8 p.m.

8. Super baby


You clearly didn't try very hard because most parents are given a Superman onesie at their baby shower. But if you find the right hipster glasses, this minimal-effort Halloween costume may just be crazy enough to work.

9. Walking watermelon


Ten points for creativity, although I'm fairly sure that a hollowed-out watermelon doesn't work well as a diaper.

10. Zombie baby


All you need is a baby carrier, an old T-shirt, some fake blood and a dirty baby. Don't forget the dirty baby.
