Funny Unique Halloween Costume Ideas

Halloween costumes allow adults to experience the fun of childlike make believe. Many people choose costumes designed to evoke fear. However, some people gravitate toward funny Halloween costumes. A good imagination reveals numerous possibilities for creating unique and funny Halloween costumes. Whether the choice of buying parts seems smarter or making them appeals more, numerous choices exist. Making people laugh at Halloween comes simply with a costume that's unique and tailored to the individual.

Friend or Co-Worker

For those whose Halloween activities revolve around a close-knit group of friends, relatives or co-workers, dressing as someone in that circle provides a high level of humour. Clear it with the person first, though, to avoid offending him. In fact, the chosen party might want to lend some items to help create the illusion. Dressing as one another brings a whole new level of potential laughter to the scenario. People with easily recognisable traits or clothing styles make the best choices for this costume.

Hybrid Costumes

Taking traditional costumes and combining them can create unique and humorous costumes. Use devil horns, mask (or red make-up) and tail and add angel wings and a halo, and the costume represents a devil going to a party dressed as an angel. A full gorilla costume works with a cheer leader or beauty queen costume to create humour. Larger contrast between the two costumes achieves more fun factor. Similarly, making the core costume more realistic and the costume "on top" more "fake" gains more laughs.

Gender Switch

While the concept of a gender switch doesn't carry a high level of novelty with it, it does evoke much laughter. Some novel touches added to the concept increase the uniqueness and humour of the costume. A man dressed as a specific woman (fictional or real) or a woman as a specific man elicits more laughs than just a generic gender swap. Making the attempt look particularly poorly executed adds even more humour to the costume.

Abstract Costumes

Abstract concepts or items (like websites) that are otherwise complicated to create visually offer laughter when pulled off as a costume. Of course, such costumes also attract a lot of "what are you?" questions. A website might prove fodder for a funny costume. A cardboard box painted as the site represents one possible method of achieving that goal. The same box transformed into a book with faces glued to it achieves a Facebook costume.
