There aren't many universal truths in this world, but here's one: Things are always more fun if there's a pun. OK, fine, I'm not sure that counts as a universal truth — I know all you pun-haters are out there somewhere — but I think we can agree that it definitely applies to Halloween costumes. Funny costumes are cool and all, but punny Halloween costume ideas have the potential to be so much more clever. And while there are plenty of pun-tastic costumes you can throw together as a solo look, why not recruit a little help from your pun-loving friends? After all, some puns are best delivered via a group, so if you and your crew are still looking for a creative Halloween idea then consider coming together and sporting a punny group costume for Halloween 2018 for the sake of some good laughs
Yes, some puns are pretty cheesy, but that's all part of the pun — I mean, fun. And what's even better is that most of these costumes are super-simple and versatile, so you can totally get creative and add your squad's personal flair to each look.
