Cheap Halloween Costume Puns

Posted on 10/07/2013

Witches, ghosts and mummies are pretty standard when it comes to Halloween costumes. But if you're looking for an easy, affordable costume with a hint of cleverness, check out these costume puns.

Spice Rack
Head to a thrift store and find the biggest bra you can. Fill that Double D with containers of herbs like cilantro, parsley and thyme to create a "spice rack."

Smartie Pants
Buy a big bag of Smarties candies the next time you're at the grocery store. Hot glue them onto a pair of your old sweat pants and you'll easily become "Smartie pants."

Black Eyed "P"
No, we're not suggesting you dress up like Fergie. Instead pull a plain t-shirt out of your closet and use tape or a marker to draw a large letter "P" on the front. Dig out your black eyeliner pencil and give yourself a nice shiner. Bam- you're a black eyed "P".

Jim from the NBC comedy The Office was known for his simple, yet clever Halloween costumes. In season two he was a three-hole punch, but his costume in season six was even easier. Pull a Jim from the office and simply write the word "book" on your face with black eyeliner.

Ceiling Fan
Show your spirit for ceilings with a ceiling fan costume. Make a sign that says "ceilings are #1". You could even create a t-shirt that shows your love of ceilings.

Cereal Killer
Attach tiny boxes of cereal like Fruity Pebbles, Golden Grahams and Frosted Flakes to a plain t-shirt. Hold a fake weapon like a knife to complete your "cereal killer" costume.

Mail Order Bride
Don't feel like making your own pun costume? Right now you can save 50 percent on the Mail Order Bride Halloween costume at It includes a dress with a stamp design and a bridal veil. Pick it up for $24.95.
