How To Be A Funny Character
Ideas, Tips and Tricks
Funny means a lot of different things to a lot of different people, which is why coming up with funny costumes ideas can be difficult. There's stuff your mom finds funny, there's stuff your dad finds funny, there's frat humor and tons of other kinds of humor. So, where do you start? Which costume suits you? Here are some funny costumes that will help tickle your imagination and your funny bone.
Funny Gender Bender Costumes
Go Team Go
"Here comes Dick, he's wearing a skirt. Here comes Jane, you know she's sporting a chain." Shaking up gender expectations makes some people uncomfortable. Other people just get a good chuckle out of it, because a big, hairy guy wearing a sexy dress can be a goofy image. These costumes are classic "sexy" staples re-imagined for men, along with a Lunch Lady Costume for good measure.
Costumes That Show Off The Legs
Sweating It Out
If you have nice legs, you try to show them off whenever you can. The good news is, the polls are in and legs are funny. A pair of slightly revealing short-shorts, it's a great way to catch people by surprise. They worked for Lt. Dangle in Reno 911, so it's proven comedy gold. For girls, showing a little unexpected leg is way to scramble some social stereotypes. Nerds aren't supposed to be sexy, right? Wrong! Show a little leg and it's a satire on modern expectations.
Funny Business Wear
Mustache You A Question...
We all grow up and end up having to wear a suit. For some guys, it's a dream come true. For other guys, they're just too serious looking. What could both of those types of guys have in common? Funny suits. Guys who love suits, get to show their silly side by wearing a mustache-themed suit. Guys who hate suits, get to goof on their non-serious nature, by wearing a non-serious suit.
