Halloween is upon us, ladies and gents, which means that you and your squad of friends are scrambling to find funny group pun Halloween costumes for 2015. You want to make sure that it's easy enough so that people can understand what you are going for, but at the same time expresses your individual taste. That is exactly why group costumes are tough! You have a lot of work cut out for you.
When I was in middle school my friends decided to do a group costume. We were going to be the Teletubbies. (Don't ask me why we thought that would be a good idea.) Since I've always been the tallest friend I was designated as the purple one, and the rest was history. Did people get what I was going for? No. Was is it a pun? Again, no. Both of those things would have been better than my costume. That is why I've compiled a list of punny group costumes you and your friends can recreate. Life is too short to not dress your best.
The trick to pulling these off is letting people take a second to "get it". You'll see their eyebrows furrow for a second, and then boom, totally realization. It will be worth it, I promise! So be bold, be fun, and tweet me your awesome punny costumes, because I'm still thinking of some for me!
1. Dunkin' Donuts
Ever since I moved to LA, I've been missing the sweet sugary heaven that is Dunkin Donuts hazelnut iced coffee. Luckily they built one in Santa Monica, but I am not about to drive 45 minutes to get coffee. Solution: this Halloween costume.
2. Ceiling Fans
This is a classic. The best part is that you can add as many people to this group as you want. Stragglers are welcome! The more fans the better the costume gets.
3. American Horror Story
Use the leftover supplies from Fourth of July and a few childhood Goosebumps books to recreate this amazing idea. Also, this gives you a chance to be current with television's latest hit.
4. Spice Rack
I'll be totally honest. I got one out of the five in the picture. My goal of posting it on here is to have you solve the mystery of the other four. Help?
5. Candy Rappers
Another one I really like. Easy to do, doesn't require a lot of upkeep, and has maximum impact. Good, good, good.
6. Burritosaurus & Fairyrrito
This one is tough to guess right off the bat. Are they magical creatures or are they aliens? Nope. They are burrito-inspired creatures. Why can't all costume ideas have something to do with food?
7. Dad Pun
I think we often forget that old people like to have fun on Halloween, too. That's why included this bad boy costume. When it comes to finding something more Dad-like, well, I'm sheet out of luck.
8. Basic Witch
I know this is a one person punny costume idea, but I thought it was so great that it deserved to be shown. This way you can ask your friends to do it with you. Then you guys will be Basic Witches together! Side note: I am totally doing this for Halloween.
This is another one of those "the sky is the limit on the amount of people who can be part of this" costumes. The second bonus of this look has to be the ability to start a game of tag at a Halloween party that blows.
10. Baby On Borg
To any of you fathers or mothers out there, scratching your head on what to be for Halloween with your parent friends ... look no more.
11. Pen Dipping In Company Ink
Easy costume to make, that serves an added purpose of telling people how you and your significant other met.
12. Black Eyed Peas
Let's get it started in here! Pay tribute to food and a great band at the same time.
13. Spice Girls
So tell me what you want! What you really, really want. I'll tell you what you want, what you really really want. You wanna, you wanna, you wanna, you wanna, really, really dress up as a Spice Girl for Halloween.
14. Cereal Killer
One of the classics. Since all you'll need is a box, some markers and friends, this makes it the perfect easy Halloween punny costume.
15. Pot Heads
You might want to stay away from posting it on publicly accessible social media. Depends on how cool your boss is.
16. Galactic Supreme Court
Saved the best for last. This Halloween, Star Wars is really popular. Win everyone over with this costume idea for you and your punny friends.
