Presented in honor* of the 30th anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back.
* Intended for loose interpretation.
UPDATE: As Josh at Comics Alliance points out, some of these costumes aren’t so much “awful” as they are executed in a terribly-misguided or -questionable manner. Let’s not let semantics keep us from the important task at hand: pointing and laughing.
5) Disproportionate Tauntaun Costume

Sure. All the right pieces are there. They just don’t happen to be in the right places. Or shapes. Or sizes. Or colors.

Stop trying to hypnotize me with your bulbous paper mache eyes, damn you.
3) Tauntaun Pony Costume

This isn’t a “tauntaun” so much as it is a bipedal snow pony with horns. Similar in concept, different in the execution. So, so different.
It looks like a reject from the rogues gallery of Labyrinth. Creepy.
2) Furry Tauntaun Costume

The Furry fandom appear to be responsible for this tauntaun costume.
So, you know… don’t drop the soap around this leering bastard. There’s a reason he’s so happy to see you.
