Halloween gives you the chance to reinvent yourself and be anything you want to be. Funny costumes have a universal appeal because the costumes can be as humorous, sexy or even cute as you want. Make a statement with a costume mimicking a recent event or opt for one that celebrates one of your favourite celebrities. Funny costume ideas for women are suitable for a Halloween event or even your next costume party in the middle of the year.

Celebrity Appeal

Pick a funny costume that pokes fun at a favourite or well-known celebrity. For example, wear a little black dress and accessorise with your favourite purse and heels. Add a fake house-arrest type ankle bracelet to one leg or carry a fake breathalyzer test, to poke fun at the way young celebrities are pulled over or arrested. Or, make your own fake tabloid from a piece of poster-board. Cut a hole in the front of the poster for your head and create a fake headline and other information. Attach the poster-board to a large box, cutting another hole through the box. Slide the box over your head and you're ready to go.

Pop Culture

Opt for a funny costume relating to a major event in pop culture or the media. A Tea Bagger costume was popular in 2010, when Sarah Palin and the Republican Party started using the nickname. During the same time frame, an oil spill costume was also common. Women wore ordinary or everyday clothing and adding black streaks of paint, to mimic the look of an oil spill.

Sexy and Funny

Combine a funny costume with a sexy costume, such as a female Robin Hood. Choose a low-cut or short green dress and top it with a black fedora and fake arrows inside a small backpack. Look for ways to take a traditionally male costume idea and make it more appropriate for women. If you're going with a group of friends, pick low-cut pinstriped suits and go as a gang of mobsters.

Just Plain Funny

Make a giant milk carton from an old cardboard box and add a photo of your boyfriend or spouse to the back, under a missing person logo. It's even funnier if your significant other is willing to work with you and go in a similar costume or even as a giant cookie. Pick costumes that are guaranteed to get laughs, such as a 1950s housewife or a large poker chip.
