2019-08-28 00:23:15 custom gift for housewarming

You know how the saying goes: If you've got it, haunt it! This Halloween, earn kudos for creativity (and hilarity!) with one of our very favorite pun costumes. Whether you're dressing up yourself, or with a significant other, a larger group of friends, or your kids, we promise there's at least one play on words in our list that'll have you cracking a smile—if not laughing right out loud. And if you happen to rock one of these punny getups to a Halloween party where all your friends and family members can check you out in person, we guarantee they'll think you look like one smart cookie...particularly if you're dressed up as a literal cookie in a graduation cap. Getting in the pun-filled mood yet? Wellbed pillow covers, if we haven't managed to wipe your resting witch face off just yet, we know our costume ideas certainly will. A "holy" guacamole costume featuring feathery angel wings and paper avocado print-outs, plus a tongue-in-cheek, beret-wearing "French toast" outfit are just a few of the pun costumes that'll have you cracking up. (This is the part where we'd normally make a skeleton joke, but we have a feeling you wouldn't find it very humerus.)

Get it?! These costumes are equal parts high-flying fun and otherworldly eeriness—the ideal mix for Halloween night.
