You can be kind of gross, but you're good with the jokes, so that makes you the life of the party!

This costume includes a large blubbery mask, true to the original with its four chins, a gruesomely detailed black robe that reveals Butterball's stretched open synthetic torso with holes for fingers and an attached apron containing three bloody, play-knives.

  • Available in Pre-Teen sizes: 14-16.
  • Includes: Mask, robe, and weapons.
  • Provide your own pants and shoes (not included) to complete the look as shown.
  • Invite your friends to dress as Pinhead and Chatterer for a Hellraiser themed costume event.
  • This is an officially licensed Hellraiser" costume.

Zackula: Pretty awesome costume...for a child.

Dr. Thorpenstein: It's clearly listed as a "pre-teen" costume, although the preferred terminology these days is "tweens."

Dr. Thorpenstein: Tweens love Cenobites! Cenobites are HOT this year in the tween market. Twilight, Hannah Montana and Cenobites.

Zackula: It is pretty awesome to imagine a gradeschool dress-up day, the halls crowded with princesses and Sponge Bobs and Spidermen, and then in walks Butterball the Cenobite. Clacking his teeth and tearing at his vagina-like open wound.

Dr. Thorpenstein: Well, they made it a little more palatable with the sexy lipstick and big delicious eyelashes. He's a sexy tween Cenobite.

Zackula: I wonder if zero tolerance policy applies to meat hooks and rib-spreaders and daggers attached to chains.

Dr. Thorpenstein: I think this costume is making you a little bit upset because when you were a tween, your nickname was "Butterball the Cenobite."

Dr. Thorpenstein: And also, people were always asking you "hey Zack, is it Halloween?"

Zackula: But Dave, I AM a cenobite. I have such sights to show you...have you ever heard of...goatass?

Dr. Thorpenstein: Jesus wept.

Dr. Thorpenstein: Oh wait, that's not Jesus. That's just a big weeping butthole.

Zackula: Costumes like this always make me wonder about the manufacturing process. Child labor in a third world country like Michigan where they aren't allowed to celebrate Halloween, puzzling over the fat-face man suit with the stomach vagina.

Zackula: I'd like to see the cargo cult that produces.

Dr. Thorpenstein: It's probably a status symbol to cut a big gaping wound in your abdomen and finger it all day. Just like those BME guys.

About This Column

Fashion SWAT... the fashion industry is obsessed with impracticality. We know that what designers create was never meant to be worn by the grimy masses, but that doesn't somehow diminish how ridiculous many of these costumes are. Make no mistake, they are costumes, and like a Halloween prize pageant we will turn our discerning gaze on the grievous fashion misfires of Paris, Milan, and New York. We're not pulling any punches, and we're definitely not interested in making any friends. We're Joan Rivers without Melissa Rivers to temper our screeching. We're the Fashion Police in jack boots. We are Fashion SWAT.
