The Best Halloween Costume Ideas


Last Minute Costume Ideas / Lazy Halloween Costume Ideas

Just wear a whistle around your neck. Easy!

An American Idol Contestant
All you need is a sign with a logo and a number. And to be drunk enough to sing on demand.

Come as you are! For the truly lazy.

Nudist on Strike
Wear your normal clothes, and a sign around your neck that says NUDIST ON STRIKE.

Serial Killer
Dress up in normal clothes, and when somebody asks what you are, respond with serial killer. If they say something along the lines of 'But you just look like a normal person", respond with "Exactly."

Dress in your normal clothes, and when somebody asks, tell them you're a werewolf. They'll say, "but you're not dressed as one!" To which your response is, "It's not a full moon."

Ancient Roman or Greek God
Just add a toga! (aka sheet)

Any outfit paired with a blank mask looks scary.

Blow up lots of purple balloons and stick them all over you. You are now a bunch of grapes.




Witty and funny Halloween Costume Ideas

Chick Magnet
Attach plushie chicken toys or rubber chicken dog toys to your shirt with safety pins. You're now a "chick magnet!"

Ceiling Fan
Wear a hat or T-shirt that says something along the lines of: "Go ceilings!" or "Ceilings #1". You are now a ceiling fan!

Get a garden pot and glue a headband to the bottom of it so you can wear the pot on your head. Bam! Instant pothead!

Formal Apology
Dress in a tuxedo and wear a sign saying "I'm sorry."

Cereal Killer
Carry a box of cereal with a knife handle sticking out of the box. Decorate the box with splashes of red paint.

Dress all in pink and tie a shoe to your head. Voila! You are now gum stuck to a shoe!
