Would this be an offensive Halloween costume?

My friends and I (5 of us total) are going to a local radio stations Halloween party/concert at a nearby music venue. Its 13 and older but we are mainly guessing it will be college students and people in their 20's there. The only rules are no masks or inflatable/real weapons of any kind. My friend had the idea that she dresses up like Hitler and the 4 of us dress up like Concentration camp victims. We would scribble numbers on our arms and wear bald caps, cut out the nazi symbol from a piece of paper and tape it to our clothes. We were thinking striped pajamas. Then we would buy black grease paint and smear it everywhere to make ourselves look dirty. Spirit Halloween sells a Hitler costume. However, would this upset or offend a lot of people? Were trying to stand out in the crowd but not offend people. This was NOT my idea, again it was my friends idea, I suggested we dress up like possessed people and she said that would be too much work. My other friend suggested Ghostbusters but the reviews online said the outfits rip and are cheaply made and they were 2 out of 5 stars.

  • I know I'll get a lot of hate for this but I actually had this idea a while back that the scariest Halloween costume would be a concentration camp victim as a zombie.

    If someone came to my place on Halloween dressed like that I'd probably shit myself and give that person all the candy.

    It would be the most terrifying and taboo costume I could think off.

    The problem is however, although I believe in free speech and freedom of expression you will upset a lot of people. You might be the victim of violence and possibly receive death threats.

    It would be best to choose something else.

  • You're on VERY thin ice with the concentration camp victim idea. Keep in mind costumes are thought to ridicule people, and while I, and probably most other people, think it's perfectly fine to make fun of and ridicule hitler, doing that to the millions of people who were hunted, killed, etc seems pretty tasteless to me.
    If you wanna do a NS based theme, just all go as hitler and if someone asks say you're his immortal clones from a secret Nazi experiment.

      Ok. That sounds like a better idea. I'm sorry about the concentration camp thing, I kinda thought it was too much but my friends like oh it will be fine. I just wanted to see what you guys would have to say before we actually did it. We should do the whole hitler army thing lol

    • 2mo

      Yeah - just for the future remember it may be funny to make fun of the bad guys, but definitely not of the people who actually died under them.

    • 2mo

      Okay. Thank you :) We will take your whole hitler army idea into consideration

  • I would probably laugh xD but considering how offended everyone is today, it's probably not the best idea. People are too sensitive nowadays.

      since its four of you why dont you go as the ghost busters and one of you be slimmer. girls can be ghost busters now.

  • i think its not a problem. i would not use a swastika though, i would use something similar but not exactly it. like maybe just a cross or something but not a swastika itself.

      Freedom of expression though.

      The fact that your sitting here arguing with me is disgusting

    • 2mo

      At least you don't deny it.

  • It's hard to think of more offensive without involving child rape and murder.

      I'll maybe throw this in as a note as well.

      If we were looking at hiring an employee, and found a photo of them dressed like that for Halloween? They'd be instantly rejected.

  • not a good idea, don't be a tirggerer

  • To be on the Safe Side here, dear, I... Wouldn't do it.
    You never Know what Tom, Dick or Joe might just Gun you down Before you even get to The Party.
    You either have to be Politically Correct Today or Be Someone that Tries to be Neutral, or Die Trying. Sad, but it Is the World in Which We Live.
    Look at my own profile Pix, which is like a "Halloween" Getup. I put it Here to Show I am "Master of My Domain," no One has Shunned my Good Name.
    Good luck, you Still have Time to Change Costumes. xx

  • Your friend sounds like a fucking idiot first of all.
    Second if you guys think the mass murder of thousands of people was funny you have shit hella fucked up.
    Pick something else that won't get you guys beat up because dressing like that will at the very least get you spit on.
