What happens when you throw a neural network at a list of Hallowe'en costume ideas? Exactly as much awesomeness as you expect.

Rink Rater Ginsburg
A winged boxer Ginsburg
Bed ridingh in a box Buther Ginsburg
Skeleton Ginsburg
Zombie Fire Cith Bader Ginsburg

Because someone had entered about 50 variations on Ruth Bader Ginsberg puns (Ruth Tater Ginsberg, Sleuth Bader Ginsber, Rock Paper Ginsberg).
Did the neural network find this AskMe?

Hmm... Statue of pizza ... The Twin Spider Mermaid ... Pretty zombie Space Suit...

Yeah, I want a costume store that sells these.

Also Fairy Batman. Although apparently that's been done. More than once.

The Wombue. That's my costume for this year, if anyone asks.

"The Shark Knight" is really awesome and a good joke. I'd enjoy someone wearing a Batman costume with a shark-head mask on.

I also think Disco Monster has a lot of potential. I'm going to keep that in mind.

Whew. My ultimate Halloween mashup costume idea is safe for another year!

Give him a poor sense of rhythm and it's The Left Shark Knight.

For this Halloween, me and my buddy are going as General Scare construct and Sports costume, respectively.

If you're still undecided, you can always go with:
"A costume"

Bird Scientist. Sexy the Girl Pirate. Vampire Big Bird. A shark princess. Spartan Gandalf. Professor Panda!!!! These are how I would like to live my life, not only Halloween.

What are you?

Hot.

No, seriously, this is a really hot costume, and I am hot. In the costume. Can I take it off now?

My nephew is actually going as Dr. Scare, who is "just a regular looking doctor, but he's actually really scary".

The Shark Knight is indeed great. Opens up a whole world of punny Batman ideas. Bark Knight (dog), Lark Knight (bird) and Quark Knight (Ferengi).

I like "petty fairy" a lot, although it'd be pretty difficult to tell the difference between that and a regular fairy

Count Drunk Doll of Princess is now a costume I have to whip up in a few hours, but girl, I am working this in Oak Lawn tomorrow night. I was going to do One Night Stand again (I have a table wrapped around my waist, with a lamp on my head, and ashtray, spilled glasses and empty condom wrappers. It's hysterical.) But I did it a couple years ago, so now, Count Drunk Doll of Princess, is totally making an appearance this year. I own a cape and a makeup kit that makes drag queens jealous, and a hoop skirt and crinolines, some mary janes and white stockings... this should be dead simple. Thanks AI!

I'm now imagining a multiverse storyline where each Bruce Wayne was inspired by a different scary thing.

Maybe in one of the universes, his parents are shot after taking him to see the Damien Hirst exhibit at the Gotham Museum of Art.

Tom Petty, but with delicate shimmering wings and a magic wand.

Sexy Cat

This is every cat (at least in their own minds. Themselves, not necessarily other cats, who may be the Devil).

I absolute love pun costumes, but I never have halloween plans or enough time to construct one. Most recent episode of Bob's Burgers had Linda as a Cheriff, which tickled me the entire time. (also, Tina wore Linda's clothes and was a mombie)

I've seen a few parodies with that premise.

Here's an official DC story that ran with that idea: https://forums.spacebattles.com/threads/bruce-wayne-becomes-a-different-hero.328344/

They mention here that Grant Morrison later used some of these for alternate Bruce Waynes.

I like to imagine that, when Sexy the Pumpkin and Sexy the Pirate can't defeat an enemy on their own, they combine ("By the Power of Sexy!") and save the day as Sexy Pumpkin Pirate.

It makes perfect sense.

I also like to imagine that they are cats.

It's not an adjective, their name is Sexy.

I wish these came out a bit earlier as I would have really enjoyed pitching "Celery Blue Frankenstein" to my son. I think he'd go for it (this year he's going as a dapper El Santo). Next year!

"Celery Blue Frankenstein" would also be a good code name in a Laundry novel.

I made a note of
Count Vorror Rairol Mencoon
for some reason. I don't know what that reason is, but I'm sure there is one.

Also, SPACE PANTS! (lyrics)

Grankenstein is in the 'incomprehensible' list, but it's actually an excellent idea - Granma Frankenstein, what's not to like?

Sigh. It's actually Frankenstein's Granma. Or, possibly, Frankenstein's Granmonster.

I read 'Spongebog' as 'Spongeborg' — which was more interesting.

"We are Spongeborg. You will be absorbed".
