Fast, Funny Costume Ideas You Can Make at Home

Sure, anybody can dress up like a witch or a werewolf for Halloween, but where's the creativity in that?

If you need a fast costume on a budget, here are some funny costume ideas you can create at home. You may not be the best dressed person at the Halloween party, but these costumes are sure to get a few grins (or groans).

Silly Costumes in a Jiffy

Here's a list of silly costumes you can make a home.

Tic Tac Toe - Glue a container of Tic Tacs to the toe of your shoe.

Paper Shredder - Get some sheets of paper or old bills and envelopes and punch a hole in them. Then put a ribbon or rope through the hole and tie it around your neck. When someone asks what you are, shred some paper!

Quarter Pounder - Carry around some quarters and a hammer. When someone asks you what you are, pound a quarter.

Freudian Slip - Wear a slip with a sign on it that says "Freud."

Quarterback - Wear a black shirt and tape a quarter to your back.

Blessing in Disguise - Put on a pair of dark sunglasses and a dark hat and wear a sash that says, "Bless You."

Cereal Killer - Dress in black and glue mini cereal boxes to your shirt. Stick plastic knives into the boxes and add some ketchup for "blood."

Black-Eyed Pea - Paint black circle around your eye and wear a white T-shirt with a large letter "P" on it.

A Shadow - Dress all in black and paint your face black, and then follow your friend, date or spouse around the Halloween party.

Buccaneer - Hang a dollar from each ear.

CD Burner - Wear a blank CD around a neck and carry a pack of matches or a lighter.

God's Gift to Women - Gift wrap a large box and cut holes in the top and sides for your head and arms. Add a gift tag that says "To: Women" and "From: God."

A Highway- Wear a black shirt with yellow double lines painted down the middle and glue or pin toy cars to the shirt.

Babysitter - Strap a doll to your rear-end and sit on it.

Peter Pan - Put a pan on your head with a name tag on it that says, "Hello, I'm Peter."

Mailman - Dress in a light blue shirt and dark blue pants and sew a stuffed dog's mouth to your pant leg or bottom.

Dr. Pepper - Wear medical scrubs and attach peppers to your shirt.

Identity Crisis - Wear any color shirt and stick name tags, each with a different name, on the shirt.

      EVERY MAN'S NIGHT MARE:

      A flanel night gown, cold cream on your face (or a white face cream), rollers in your hair and fluffy slippers with a sign that says 'EVERY MAN'S NIGHTMARE'!

      I once did the ceiling fan idea (Purim - not Halloween) - I just had a cap that said "Go Ceilings!" and carried around pom-poms. Another year, I put a little bit of brown lipstick around my the outside of my lips and I went as a chocoholic!

      I'm gonna tape smartie candies all over my pants and go as a "smartie pants." It's my favorite quick solutions to costuming.When you have five kids to outfit, the last thing I need is another complicated costume for Halloween! Love these "punny" ideas.

      Last year I went as a ceiling "fan". I made ceiling fan blades as a hat, then put stickers all over me saying "go ceilings", and "ceilings rule". It was cheap, and got a lot of laughs.

      These ideas would be funny for a church group or some other organization where no real creative humor is allowed.

      Put a pan on your head with a name tag on it that says, "Hello, I'm Peter."

      I think I would beat someone up for doing this.

      Here's another idea that my friend Sean did, although it's not nearly as simple as the Halloween costume ideas mentioned above! :)

      He covered himself in Post-It notes and went to work as the guy on the cover of the Office Space DVD.

      If anyone is interested, here are the step-by-step instructions

      I was a "Girl Gone Wild" I just work a sleeveless flesh colored tank & cut out a rectangle piece of black cardboard and stenciled CENSORED in white and attached it to the shirt. Some beads, maybe a wig and perfect! It was a huge hit! :)

      I already decided my Halloween costume this year - the boy who freaked out due to a mother canceling his account. I'll dress as Identity Crisis for the 2010 Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, with name tags bearing names of the Disney characters!
