If you browse through our site you'll see a lot of very funny costumes. In fact, they're just as popular as the zombies and vampires and Beetlejuice costumes. Not everyone likes to dress like a zombie. And some people like to dress like a zombie hot dog. Whatever your 'taste' in costumes, here are some ideas to help you get a few laughs.
There really is a kid dressed up in a zombie hot dog costume and the zombie theme can make for some funny Halloween ideas. Scary, gross zombies are always popular but who'd ever expect to run into a zombie Spongebob Squarepants or a zombie nun? Or how about a flesh-eating zombie Strawberry Shortcake?
Some funny Halloween costumes show some real imagination and creativity. Like the young couple who dressed like a Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich or the married couple who created a costume that made it look like they were riding a roller coaster.
Some costumes are just as cute as they are funny. Like the little boy dressed as a mummy. And it's such an easy costume to make. An off-white sweatsuit and some torn strips of muslin, wrap him up, tie a few knots and voila! Tiny mutant mummy!
Some of the best costumes make you scratch your head and wonder, "How did he come up with that idea?" Like the kid dressed as an A&W Rootbeer float or the Flying Monkey from the Wizard of Oz. And then there's the teen dressed in a costume he calls 'Bed head'. His costume actually looks like he's laying in bed!
Outhouses are always funny, too, and we have one guy dressed as a hunter 'using' the outhouse and another guy carrying a port-a-potty around on his back. Look for costume ideas that use diapers, too. Hey! Maybe you could be a zombie baby!
Funny costumes of cartoon characters are always popular but some of the funniest costumes are those that are a play on words. For example, the guy who goes to a party dressed wearing a ski mask and a sweater covered with those little boxes of cereal. Sticking out of each of the boxes was a steak knife. His costume? He was a 'cereal' killer!
Halloween costumes don't always have to be scary or bloody or creepy. Some of the best costumes are funny, like this tiny fisherman or the lady who wore some fuzzy pink pajamas and had a chair on her head... She was a wad of bubble gum stuck under the chair!
