Every year there's always one costume you just know is going to be incredibly overplayed and almost universally lame. This year that honor has to go to the Joker, specifically the tatted up juggalo gangster seen in Suicide Squad. As discovered by chaeronaea, Patrick Monahan and a host of others on Twitter, this year's crop of mass-produced Joker costumes are so bad they're kind of priceless. Even Jared Leto had a hard time selling his version of the character with a professional team of costumers and makeup artists, so you can imagine the trouble your average stock photo models ran into when it came time to take pictures. 

We've grabbed some of the best examples we could find and linked them -- less so you can buy them, and more to assure you we aren't making these up. If you find any more, please please post them in the comments. The radioactive badness of these Joker costumes is a tiny ray of sunshine in one of the bleakest years in recent memory.
