It turns out that Devo isn't the only band that sells their own Halloween costumes: The Misfits do as well. This costume, pictured here, isn't really identifiably a Misfits costume other than the logo on the shirt though. Still, if you like it, you can get it at the band's website.

Of course, the band isn't what they used to be: Glenn Danzig hasn't been in the group for decades.  Bassist Jerry Only is now the lead singer as well. I don't want to hate on anyone, but for me, without Danzig, it isn't The Misfits.

If you really want to be a Misfit, I'd say just wear lots of black leather, use white makeup with black around your eyes, pull a long lock of your hair down in front of your face and wear a classic era Misfits shirt. See below!

Oh yeah, again, don't be a poseur! If you're going to dress as a Misfit, you probably already have their music. But if you don't (today on The Morning Jolt With Larry Flick, Larry pointed out that lots of kids wear Misfits t-shirts but probably don't really listen to the music), pick some up. Get the 1986 compilation Misfits and 1995's Collection II. Or, if you want to spend a bit more, both of those are included in the 1996 box set The Misfits. It's shaped like a coffin, so it's worth the extra bucks!
