Humorous Costumes

When you think of Halloween, you think of ghosts, supernatural occurrences and evil beings.  So when you think of Halloween costumes you automatically think along those same lines.  However, in the last couple of years more and more teenagers and adults are turning instead to humorous costumes.  Don’t get me wrong, there are still plenty of ghosts and goblins out there on Halloween night.  But for me, in between every couple of hair-raising gruesome costumes, I just love to see one that makes me laugh.

Last October my brother Brian and his wife Jill stopped by on the way to their annual Halloween costume pub crawl.  My brother was dressed as this big silver Beer Keg and his wife was a Fraulein Beer Garden Girl.  Brian’s Beer Keg costume (Beer Keg Halloween Costume) had a working tap in the helmet that you could actually put liquid in and drink from it.  It was hilarious!  Jill made a great Beer Garden Girl in her costume Beer Garden Girl Halloween Costume and was the perfect compliment to Brian’s Beer Keg.  They won second place for the funniest couple costume.  Unfortunately for them, Trailer Park King Halloween Costume and his wife, White Trash Halloween Costume came in first. 

Humorous costumes come in all shapes and sizes.  They can be as funny, disgusting, or anatomically incorrect as you want them to be.  Many of these I would definitely save for the “adult” costume parties.  Television shows have some of the funniest and unforgettable characters that always make great Halloween costumes:  Cartman from South Park , Stewie from Family Guy, Lieutenant Jim Dangle from Reno 911 (he’s the one that wears the short shorts) or Mary Katherine from Saturday Night Live, just to name a few.

If television characters aren’t what you’re looking for, then try your hand at being an alcoholic beverage.  Instead of drinking a beer at your next Halloween costume party, you can actually be one, or maybe a bottle of tequila, a martini or even a margarita.  The possibilities are endless and humorous!
