30 Prom Photos That Will Make You Cringe So Hard
Oh prom, what a great night in a high schooler’s life. The dresses, the tuxes, the music, and the romance – what could go wrong? Take a look for yourself down below…
We are no experts, but it looks like this guy is way more into his date than she is into him. Her smile is a little uncomfortable.
Caught in the Act
Doesn’t this guy know the rule? You can glance at cleavage. Staring at it like it’s the northern lights is not cool – especially when you’re busted on camera!
A Bold Choice
We aren’t really sure what these getups are all about, but hey! The couple appears to be having fun, so you do you, guys! (Even if your attire is slightly inappropriate.)
The cat that is in a chokehold better watch out before he ends up a wall decoration like his large friend, Mr. Tiger. (Seriously, this couple looks dead inside).
God Bless America
Okay, so these getups are awfully ugly, but, they are pretty creative and it looks like a lot of time went into making them. Good job getting crafty!
This beautiful girl’s dad doesn’t need a shotgun to keep the boys away. All he has to do is remove his shirt and make that creepy face.
There is way too much to unpack here, so let’s just throw out the whole suitcase and move on!
Now You See Us…
The girl appears to be doing a cute, silly pose. The boy, on the other hand, looks like he is actually trying to disappear. Bad date?
Nothing says “prom night” like holding large chickens. I think it would be much more explainable if the chickens were dressed in formal attire as well.
YOLO? More like BOLO.
This girl looks absolutely adorable in her polka dot dress, but her date is a hot mess. The shaved head with bangs, the belt buckle, the horse shirt, and the bolo tie only make sense if the theme is “stereotypical Texan as portrayed in a movie.” Run like those horses, girl!
Oh. My. God. Becky.
She looks like one of those rap guys’ girlfriends. Grafitti on the butt of your prom gown is kind of like a vanity plate. A+ for originality.
You can tell that these outfits took a ton of planning, time, and effort to create. The ingenuity is fabulous; the result? Not so much. Sorry guys.
The Future’s So Bright…
…They’ve got to wear shades.
Get to the Chopper!
This is just as impressive as it is terrible. What is that award for? “The most hairspray used?”
Somebody should have considered the fact that this rickety wooden dock wasn’t made to hold 17 full-grown people. I hope their makeup was waterproof!
The Higher the Hair, the Closer to Heaven
This picture looks like the lovechild of Whitesnake and Saved By the Bell.
I Got the Blues
We admire this couples’ dedication so much, it’s hard to poke fun of their prom getup – but… it’s pretty ugly. Expertly crafted, but awful design. Great job on originality though!
These protective spikes will keep unwanted prom suitors at bay. It kind of looks like if the Statue of Liberty and The Little Mermaid had a baby.
Hair ‘em Scare ‘em
This is our favorite photo on the list. The couple looks so awful, but so confident at the same time. Also, his hair looks highly flammable.
Orange is a fruit, not a skin tone.
The orange in this photo is palpable. These ladies better hope that last minute, top-off spray tan doesn’t stain your pretty dresses!
Yet again we have a couple who performed expert craftsmanship with duct tape. These getups are definitely out there, but we kind of love it!
Turn Around Gown
Oh the back of this dress is so prett… YIKES! Turn back around girl. You lost half of your dress!
Is she hiding another date under there? This picture is crazy. Where to begin? The giant piñata dress? The baggy pleather pants? The zebra print? There is a lot going on here. At least this couple isn’t boring!
Tacky Photo Op
They should have planned a better photo. This one is pretty tasteless. Yikes!
Matching can be cute, but the Winnie the Pooh motif is a little weird. And why does this guy look so miserable? His date is stunning! He must not be a big fan of Winnie the Pooh.
Now You See Us…
…And you never will as long as prom is held in a deer stand.
Prom Date From Hell
Do you think she invited Satan, or Satan invited her? At least they match. 10/10 for matching. 10/10 for creepy! Good job?
Here we have another classic example of excellent craftsmanship but terrible design. We just hope these girls didn’t start a fistfight over their Twilight dreamboats!
Professional Prom Date
No, really… we are pretty sure this guy paid for his prom date by the hour.
A Lifelong Partner
This guy’s Xbox 360 has been there for him when no other girl was. So naturally he took it (her?) to prom. A+ for guts!
If you are going to prom, use these photos as a guide on what not to wear!
