Puns are probably my favorite literary tool ever. I think they’re great. I could do a performance on puns. It would just be a play on words though. HAHAHA get it? Okay, I’m calm. Sorry. Anyway, I really love puns. There are so many good ones, and since Halloween is coming up why not go as a pun?
While all of your friends are dressing up like cartoons and Harry Potter characters, you’ll have a unique costume that is a great conversation started. One year I was pirate’s booty and dressed up like treasure alongside my BF who was a pirate. It was one of my best costumes! If you’re looking for a different type of Halloween costume, I’ve got a bunch of punny ones for you to try:
Binders Full of Women
Remember when Mitt Romney said we had binders full of women? It's been a Halloween costume since 2012, and it's glorious. You can make yourself into a large binder by attaching cardboard to yourself!
Blue Screen of Death
Ugh this always happens to me. The blue screen of death appears on Windows computers, and it's a nightmare. Just dress up like a blue Grimm Reaper, and you're good to go.
AHAHA get it? Candy wrapper. Candy rapper! Dress up like a rapper and stick wrappers on your shirt.
I love this. Dress up like a sports fan and cheer for the ceiling. So simple, yet so fun.
Fantasy football really should be magicians playing football. You just need a robe or long dress, a football helmet, beard and a staff.
Yasss! Song of Style's Aimee Song dressed up as a cereal killer one year with this fun costume. All you need to do is attach mini cereal boxes to your body and carry a plastic knife.
Under the Weather
LOL. Wear all gray and make a headband using paper clouds and weather symbols. Smear some mascara on your face and be sad.
Oh boy. Dress up like a milkshake and write Harlem across the cup. Please just don't do the Harlem Shake though.
Ice, Ice Baby
This is such a great group costume! You can do this with friends and have two of you dress up like ice and one dress up like a baby. Or you can go it alone and be a baby with ice cubes attached.
One Night Stand
This costume is amazing! You need a cardboard box as the base where you'll attach things like an alarm clock, a book or other things you'd find on a night stand. Wear a lampshade as a hat!
This one's easy! Dress up as any animal you want and throw on a party hat. Bonus points if you bring a kazoo!
OMG. Love. Get a cardboard box, paint it like a fridge and dress up like a runner.
Bless this man. Grab a bra and stuff it with spices. You're a spice rack!
Take a page from Jim Halpert's book and be Facebook. Literally go as yourself and write "book" on your face.
This is by far my favorite. Dress up as Belle from Beauty and the Beast and carry around a bag or cup from Taco Bell. ***Flawless!
