Manti Te'o Costumes Were Everywhere on Halloween

The day after Halloween seems like the time people dig through the internet to find the most ridiculous Halloween costumes. It seems like athletes are usually the ones getting the most attention for the costumes they wore, but sometimes the athletes are receiving attention because of people dressing up like them. With the whole Manti Te’o controversy clouding the former Notre Dame Fighting Irish and current San Diego Chargers linebacker’s life this year, it was only a matter of time before people started poking fun of his imaginary girlfriend, Lennay Kekua.

How can you depict such a situation in a Halloween costume, though? Do you just not show up to an event and say you were there dressed as Manti Te’o’s girlfriend — technically you wouldn’t be lying. However, that’s not what this costume looks like.

If you want to see a couple people who dressed up like the NFL player, check it out here:

These are about as good as they get. Not often do you get to see a Halloween costume of Te’o with a dress hanging off it, signaling the fact that Te’o’s girlfriend was never real.

I’m going to go ahead and say this costume wins Halloween this year and for possibly years to come. If you’re not impressed by this costume, then you are most likely named Manti Te’o and even if you are named Manti Te’o, you probably can’t help but laugh at this.
