28 Hideously Awesome Prom Dresses to Wear on Your Big Night

Awful Prom Dresses peachesboutique.com

Don't just go to prom. Arrive at prom.

If you don't have a prom dress yet, we are here to help. And if you don't have a date either, we can help with that, too. But at a later time. It's perfectly acceptable to get a dress before you get a date, because, ladies, the coolest prom date ever is yourself. Especially if you put out for you.

Gross joke. Sorry. But anyway, the prom dress is undoubtedly one of the most important articles of clothing you'll ever own, so you gotta go big. Sure, you can buy a beautiful but boring princess style dress that shimmers and has a beautiful tulle skirt. Or you can get a neon green dress that's long in the back, short in the front and has ruffles, sequins and leopard print! That dress exists, and it's amazing.

WATCH: Get ready for the Parks and Recreation prom episode!

Stand out at prom! Don't blend in, because blending in is laaame. Be an individual; an individual who has a dress that's actually insulting to the public because of its ugliness. And if you do want to find the most hideous, most horrifying, most disgustingly awesome dresses, we've rounded up the best of the best. These dresses are actual assaults on your eyeballs, and we love them.

So get ready to show mom your dream dress, and please do send us a Vine or Instagram of her reaction when you break the news to her that you'll be wearing something that looks like a rainbow cupcake on acid. We've also named the dresses in case someone at prom says to you: "What the hell are you wearing?!" And then you can say: "The Hot Pink Butt Waterfall. Oh, you've never heard of it?! Wow, you're so very démodé."
