Too tired of the usual and boring ghosts, zombies, mummies, witches, and vampires or the very colorful fairies, princesses, and angels? Do you want to be something creative that can elicit unanimous laughter from friends because of your ingenuity? There is one answer: try to be funny!
Halloween costumes don’t always need to be scary and spooky. They can also be funny, crazy, and hilarious. Funny Halloween costumes do not always mean that you should dress up as a clown or as a jester. Funny costumes can be ordinary things that one would not normally think to turn into a Halloween costume like a Christmas tree, a bowling pin, or a night stand (and call it “One Night Stand”).
Here are some ideas for humorous costumes you can dress up as come October 31st.
Funny costumes for infants and kids
If the child has red hair, dress him as a carrot complete with the green stem on top of his or her head and then call them “carrot top”. Or dress him up in a baby bunting or baby sleeping bag with the Sugar Babies logo written on the front, and voila! He’s become one sweet baby!
Other costume ideas for infants and kids are a baby giant banana, a hotdog, a loaf of Wonder Bread, a Tootsie Roll, and a red hot chili pepper. Other cute and funny costumes are penguins, a little monkey, or a bumblebee.
Funny costumes for adults
There’s also a wide array of funny costume ideas for adults. They can be hilarious costumes with clean humor or with sexual innuendos. Funny costumes with sexual innuendos are most popular with adults, especially at adult Halloween costume parties.
Some costume ideas with clean humor are Dumb and Dumber, Adam and Eve (complete with a skin-tone body suit and leaves covering your private parts), Ken, a blind referee, Betty and Veronica, a midget rocker, Olive Oyl, a maxed out credit card, a fat guitar-playing Mexican dude, a 70s disco king or queen, a giant hotdog, or a big daddy pimp with lots of bling-bling.
Another surefire idea that will get laughs from your peers on Halloween is cross-dressing. If you’re a male, try dressing up as a female character. Get a bunch of your male buddies and dress up as a male cheerleading squad. If you would rather go solo, dress up as a tooth fairy, Britney Spears or Paris Hilton. You can also dress up as Snow White and bring little stuffed toys as your seven dwarves. A cross-dressing French maid or a Hooters waitress with ridiculously big boobs can also do the funny trick.
Females can also dress up as male superheroes to get that funny effect. Dress up as Superman complete with exaggerated biceps and muscles or a female version of Austin Powers with the famous accent and “Yeah, baby!”
Other popular funny Halloween costumes that lean toward the naughty side are a pack of condoms, a medieval knight with his bits hanging outside his breeches, a flasher, and a plug and socket.
