Jeannie is a huge fan of Halloween and loves everything that is ghoulish. You can often find her reading or writing horror stories.


Beware of the King!

We've all seen the Burger King ads starring the Burger King. Sometimes you are minding your own business craving a delicious BK value meal and watching the TV, when all of a sudden, he appears! Gasp! It is the Burger King! Not only am I not sure what he has to do with food, I am pretty sure he scares many people. The Burger King is not what first comes to mind when I think of a tasty value menu; no, he is the creator of nightmares.

Despite the Burger King's creepiness, I actually really liked him. I suppose I have a twisted sense of humor and I enjoy a good scare. You can imagine I was very sad to learn recently that Burger King is officially retiring the Burger King. Even though the commercials were original and won awards, apparently the King really was scaring away customers. Let's face it, the Burger King just isn't doing his job if people feel uneasy watching the commecials and have no desire to eat Burger King food because of it. It is sad to see the Burger King go, but it is for the best.

If you are like me, I am sure you would like to find someway to keep the Burger King alive. Well, there is a way to do it. You can dress like the Burger King this Halloween. Yes, what could be better than creeping your friends out by wearing a Burger King Halloween costume this year?

The Burger King Halloween Costume

Believe it or not, it is actually not that difficult to find the Burger King Halloween costume. You can easily buy it online or at a party store. Not only can you get the mask, you can get the entire Burger King costume at a fairly reasonable price.

So what will you do once you purchase your Burger King Halloween costume? Oh, the options are unlimited! Do you live in a college dorm? If so, dress up like the Burger King and walk around scaring all your dormmates. It does not even have to be Halloween for that. Get out a video camera and creep up beside your roommate while he or she is sleeping. When your roommate wakes up, surprise! It will be just like the commercial.

Perhaps you would like to dress up like the Burger King and then go to Burger King. Wow! What fun! People will either run away in fear or ask for your autograph. It could totally go either way. Just be warned, if you end up in jail over that one, I don't have any bail money. You are on your own with that one.

You can also go trick or treating, or attend Halloween parties dressed like the Burger King. You will be an instant hit no matter where you go! If you pick up some delicious Burger King Chicken Fries and start passing them out everywhere you go, everyone will love you even more (even if they are still afraid of you). The fun never stops with a Burger King costume.

Ronald McDonald Enters the Picture

If you really want to step up your Halloween fun this year, find a friend that is willing to dress like Ronald McDonald. Then the two of you can stroll into any Halloween celebration and get into fake fights. It is even better if you pretend you are not together.

Even funnier, make sure to buy some of those Burger King Chicken Fries I mentioned earlier, and get your friend to pick up some Chicken McNuggets. Challenge innocent people to taste test both, and then you and Ronald can get into an awkward conversation about who has better chicken. If you can find a 3rd friend willing to stroll around the corner dressed like Colonel Sanders of Kentucky Fried Chicken, you will have pulled off a hilarious Halloween prank. Of course, I realize no one in their right mind will go through this kind of trouble, but I can dream, can't I?

The bottom line is, dressing like the Burger King will be ridiculously funny and totally creepy. You can get your Burger King Halloween costume at stores and online right now. Just remember, the Burger King has retired and this is probably your last opportunity to get his costume. Have fun this Halloween and don't scare anyone too much with that Burger King mask!

    The King is pretty creepy. I don't know... it might be worth sleeping on the couch for a while. Hehehe. Thanks for visiting and for the votes!

    This is AWESOME! The King freaks my husband out. And clowns. I too have a different sense of humor and that would have been such a wonderful costume idea for me. Although, it could have ended with me sleeping on the couch for a month or, maybe not. Glad Epi recommended we come check you out. Voted up and sharing.

    Yes, a fast food mascot theme would be perfect for a group of friends. Someone can even dress up like the Chick fil A cow. I am glad you liked the hub. Happy Halloween!

    This is a great article. Every year my friends and I try and come up with a great group costume idea (This year we did super heroes and villians). This may be on the drawing board for next year.

    This is so true. The Burger King will always be the king. McDonald's simply cannot compete. Thanks for dropping by!

    Truly the king of burgers far superior to the mac attack or skimpy wimpy. Nice outfit btw not scary at all.

    I have to agree with you on this. I always liked the Burger King. I do understand he was probably too scary for some customers though. He will be missed! Thanks for the comment.

    Movie Master - Good luck getting your husband on board with the Burger King / Ronald McDonald Halloween date. If all else fails, he could be the Burger King and you can be the Wendy's girl.

    RealHousewife - That is part of the fun of Halloween - dressing up your kids in embarrassing outfits and taking photos so you can keep the embarrassment going for years to come. Glad you enjoyed the hub.

    lundmusik - Yes, I have to agree. That gnome is creepier that the Burger King. At least the Burger King might bring you some good food.

    Thank you everyone for your comments!

    the burger king is the creepiest symbol of all -- except of course for the Travelocity gnome :)

    If your husband does dress up like the Burger King, make sure to post a picture. I think it would be hilarious to go all over town creeping people out with a Burger King costume this Halloween, but I would not have the nerve. Thanks for the votes and the comment!

    Thanks so much! Now I've wanted to eat Burger King food all day because of this hub. I thought the Colonel wig and moustache was pretty hilarious, too. Who knew you could buy all this stuff? Thanks for the votes!

    Hi Jeannie,

    You are so funny. I'm totally digging these costumes. My absolute favourite? The Colonel Wig & Moustache - PRICELESS!

    Hahaha... thanks! I don't know what made me think of this, but all of sudden last night I thought, "Someone needs to dress up like the Burger King this Halloween!" I can't believe there are so many costumes for the Burger King on Amazon. I guess everyone can appreciate something so creepy, yet so funny.

    Hahahaha ok so I totally want to call any 2 of my friends and ask if we can all do this at some Halloween party lol. This is a great idea as a group costume and I can see it being a huge hit at parties. Too funny!
