Funny Halloween Costume Ideas
"I really hate to laugh!" said no one ever. Because let’s face it, everyone needs to laugh. It's the great unifying force of humanity, and we definitely need a little more laughter in the world. That's why we're here to recruit you in spreading humor around the globe! It all starts with one of our funny Halloween costumes…and we have plenty of those to choose from. The real question is, which one should you choose?
It seems like a pretty tall order, doesn't it? You could go the classic route and wear a silly clown costume or you could take inspiration from your favorite movies. Few things are funnier than the moment you walk through the door with your best bud, dressed up as Harry and Lloyd from Dumb and Dumber. Or how about a look from your favorite TV show, like Parks and Rec or Futurama? Just imagine the kind of ruckus you can cause by dressing up as everyone's favorite rude robot, Bender! Don't worry, because we're here to help you make that important decision. You can use this helpful guide to find out if you're more of a "punny" costume kind of person or if you want something that taps into nostalgia!
Punny Halloween Costumes
The playwright John Dennis once stated that "A man who could make so vile a pun would not scruple to pick a pocket." To that, we say…lighten up, dude! Everyone likes a good pun now and again. Even Shakespeare used plenty of puns in his works, so we think that even some of those vocal pun-haters out there are secret fans of puns. Then again, maybe John Dennis was never a fan of puns because he didn’t see our punny Halloween costume ideas! Sometimes a little bit of wordplay is just what the doctor ordered to cure those Halloween blues. Some punny costumes work best as a duo, but you can also craft some great puns if you're flying solo this year. Just check out some of our best options for punny costumes!
Cat Burglar Punny Couples Costume
Let's face it. Cats are the internet's darling, despite the fact that they're secretly the most evil creatures in existence. And let's get this straight while we're at it, too! If cats COULD commit blatant burglary, they would. Their lack of opposable thumbs makes thieving much harder. Anyways, if you want to create an adorable costume based on the internet's most adorable (and mischievous) critter, then give this cat burglar couples costume a try! Just pair up any one of our cat costumes with a prisoner costume for full effect!
Fantasy Football Punny Couples Costume
Sports, huh? Some people just don't get football. When you ask who their picks are for fantasy football, they think about orcs and elves tossing the pigskin around. You can play off that silly image by creating your own fantasy football duo costume! All you need is one of our many wizard costumes and a football costume. Put them together and you can show everyone your fantastic sportsball knowledge!
Runny Nose Costume
Where do you think the term "runny nose" came from? It's not like noses have feet! Can you even imagine what a nose would look like if it ever tried to run? Or a nose with a pair of shoes on? Well, we're glad someone made up that phrase because it helped give the world this Runny Nose costume, which takes the phrase quite literally. Just make sure that you ask everyone for a tissue when you wear this funny costume to the party!
Holy Guacamole Costume
When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. If life gives you avocados, then make some guacamole! We're not really sure if that qualifies as a life lesson, but we love some fresh, homemade guacamole. Oh, and the next punny costume idea is this Holy Guacamole Costume, which combines the lovely avocado with some angel wings and a halo to give it a truly divine look!
Funny Couples Costumes
The couple that laughs together, stays together! Some studies seem to suggest this bold statement is true. So, what better way to embrace the funny than with one of our funny couples’ costumes? The fact is, a lot of our couples' costumes make it extremely easy for you and your significant other to dress up in a funny outfit! From hilarious food combination costumes to some slightly cheeky innuendos, there's an excellent choice for any couple who's looking to team up to spread the laughs this year.
Funny Group Costumes
Laughter is best when shared with friends! Why? Because when you share a laugh, it helps create memories that will last a lifetime. And that's a pretty powerful thing! Well, one of the best ways to share a laugh is to be a part of a group costume. We have some cool choices for just about everyone, from family-friendly to more adult themes, so you can find a look that suits your group. Let's check out some of our favorite group costume options below.
Food Group Costumes
We can admit it. There's nothing inherently funny about food. After all, you need it to keep living. Some of it smells good. A lot of it is delicious. So why is a food group costume a good idea when trying to craft a funny group costume this year? It's simple, really. When people dress up as food, it just looks funny. Can you imagine your best friend wearing an eggplant costume? How about making your significant other get all decked out in an avocado costume. And our corndog costume? Just try to keep a straight face when you make your dad wear it. The other great thing is that we have a ton of options when it comes to food costumes. From classic fruit costumes to the junk food that we all crave, we carry a whole bunch of costumes for everyone!
Price is Right Group Costume
It became a generation-spanning rite of passage. Or at least, it was until the advent of streaming services. It happened when you stayed home sick from school. You cozy up on the couch, turn on the TV…and there just doesn't seem to be anything good on. All the cartoons they play were for preschool kids and you can only watch so many minutes of a soap opera before you need a bit of a palette cleanser. Then you flip to The Price is Right. It's silly. How could these average people get so excited guessing the prices on a lifetime supply of dishwasher detergent? And yet, you can help yourself from getting completely engrossed in the show! You find yourself shouting "one dollar, Bob!" when it's time to bid. Well we've got a funny group costume for all of you secret Price is Right fans out there! These costumes are based on the iconic game show and each one showcases a unique bidding strategy.
Funny Adult Costumes
Over the last few decades, costume parties for adults have really surged in popularity. It was once just a thing for kids, but those kids have now grown up and they still love to wear costumes! That means you can infuse a little bit of your sophisticated, adult-style humor into them! We have a ton of great costume choices for adults, based on your favorite television shows and movies. Of course, we also have some VERY adult costumes, but make sure you only wear those after you've put the kids to bed. Whether you want to relive the days of Reno 911, jump into the shoes of Leslie Knope, or get a delicious snack-style outfit, you'll be able to find a great adult costume to wear.
Funny Kids' Costumes
Kids are connoisseurs of fine humor…. Okay, okay. Maybe most kids like fart jokes and people getting hit in the face with pies. Neither of those can really be classified as high-brow humor, but you know what? We think that stuff is funny, too! Of course, not all of our funny kids’ costumes are about wacky, slapstick humor. We have a ton of outfits based on hit comedy movies, like our Ace Venture and Nacho Libre costumes. We also have some retro funny costumes, like our Smurfette costume. Maybe if your child is obsessed with breakfast food, they can get a few laughs dressing up like an Eggo Waffle! If your little one still can't get away from the fart jokes, then just dress them up in one of our Whoopee Cushion costumes!
Funny Baby Costumes
Is your little one already generating the laughs at this age? Then maybe you have a little comedian on your hands! There are plenty of ways you can help enhance your baby's funny factor. You can start writing a few jokes for them…but we think that dressing them up in one of our funny baby costumes will create some chuckles at the next costume party! So what kind of outfit is right for your infant or toddler? Well, Baby Shark has been hot for a while now, so one of our costumes based on Pinkfong's Baby Shark is an adorable way to keep everyone giggling. We even have Mommy Shark for those little ones who are wise beyond their years! We also like our baby sumo outfit, since the idea of a baby being a major competitor in ring gives us a good chuckle. We also have options for Smurfs, which makes for a great family costume.
Funny Movie Costumes
Some people love action movies. Others need a good romance to stay tuned in. Us? Comedy movies are our bread and butter. Our movie collection is filled with some hilariously quirky films, like Anchorman, Nacho Libre, Dumb and Dumber, and Jay and Silent Bob. We also love the Legally Blonde movies. Reese Witherspoon is a treasure and no one can tell us otherwise. And don't get us started about 80s movies! Eddie Murphy in Coming to America? That might be one of the funniest movies of all time! Well, we know that everyone loves to dress up as their favorite funny characters from film, which is why we've created some awesome Made By Us designs for all of these iconic movies.
Funny Dog Costumes
We saved the best for last on this one. Let's talk doggos. Those furry little friends are born comedians! Have you ever watched dogs chase their own tail? How about when they wiggle their feet when they're dreaming? Or when you tell them that it's time to go for a car ride? Pure comedy gold! That's why it's only natural that you'd want to accentuate your dog's funny side. We have all sorts of options for your pet, whether you have a doggo, a pupper, a smol boi, a heckin' good boy, or anything in between! Your puppy can become the delivery dog, a faithful henchman, a funny character from Nicktoons, or even Waldo! We have so many options, you just have to choose your favorite dog costume to give your dog the look it needs to generate some extra laughs.
