Offbeat website Shot Hot Coffee Out of Nose announces its annual list of hilarious and unique Halloween costumes including two unique Illusion Costumes.

Mommy I Don't Wanna Grow Up Costume

Americans revel in the chance to transform themselves for one night and many like to have some fun with their costume.

With Halloween right around the corner, the off-beat website Shot Hot Coffee Out of Nose today announced it's list of the funniest costumes for 2012. Topping the list are two 'Illusion Costumes'. Illusion costumes are a novel costume format emerging in recent months that give the wearer an illusion that they actually have another person or animal in tow. The 'Mommy I Don't Wanna Grow Up' costume is this year's best example of an 'Illusion Costume' as it's created to give the illusion that a grown man is riding his mother piggy-back style. The same is true of the 'Ostrich Rider' costume which gives the illusion that a grown man is riding an Ostrich. Each of these costumes is priced under $50.

Halloween is quickly becoming one of the top retail spending holidays of the year and will top $8 billion in US spending this season. The average consumer will spend $79.83 on decorations, costumes and candy, up from $72.31 last year, according to the survey conducted for the NRF by research firm BIGinsight. "Halloween is one of the most beloved days of the year and Americans will again go all-out to have fun and escape the mundane," said Chet Dickfield, editor of Shot Hot Coffee Out of Nose. "For one reason or another Americans revel in the chance to transform themselves for one night and many like to have some fun with their costume. At shcoon.com we pride ourselves in having a website full of unique gifts and costumes for Halloween or any occasion."

Other costumes that made the list this season are the Slice of Bacon, Carl Speckler (Caddyshack Groundskeeper), The creepy Burger King mask from the TV commercials, and The Plus Size Men's Bavarian costume which is great for huskier men who are willing to poke a little fun at themselves.

"This year's batch of winners are some of the most creative and well-designed costumes we've seen in over a decade," added Dickfield. "If you're looking to win the Best Costume prize this year, you must check out our website."
