Halloween is a time for choosing which ridiculous outfit you’ll don for any number of costume parties. Some people like to keep it classic and go the creepy or horror route. Some, of course, go the sexy route.

Both of those are tried-and-true strategies. But there is a third time-honored tradition for a Halloween costume: funny costumes. Humor takes many forms, so we’ll let you decide what’s funny to you. Here we have a collection of options to get you thinking about what’s funniest to you and your fellow party-goers. We have food, innuendo, and animals covered.

For those that prefer humor to scares at Halloween, here’s our list of the top ten best funny halloween costumes for 2016.


1. Bodysocks Inflatable Ride Me Adult Carry On Animal Costume

(Bodysocks)

Part of what makes a costume humorous (to me, at least) is when it’s too large to fit in any sufficiently crowded Halloween party house. This one certainly fits that bill. You’re bound to be the only princess riding an enchanted unicorn if you go with this option. Even if you aren’t, you can always joust. This includes a little fan inside that inflates the costume continuously throughout the night. If that doesn’t suit you, you can always go with an inflatable t-rex or bull rider.

2. Rasta Imposta Squirrel Costume

I am certainly biased in my love for rodents, but there’s something about dressing as a giant squirrel that is inherently funny to me. In case you’re wondering, yes, it does come complete with the nuts. So, if the costume itself doesn’t get at least a smile out of folks, you can always crack the occasional nut joke. Get it? Okay. I thought you might.

You’d better believe there’s a sexy squirrel option, too.

3. Rasta Imposta Lightweight Plug and Socket Couples Costume

(Rasta Imposta)

If you need a couples costume, it’s silly to resist the urge to go dirty. This simple costume will give you all the ammo you need for making jokes about plugging sockets, whatever that means. I trust you’ll be able to fill in the rest of the blanks. If you want something a little more modern along these same lines, try the USB port version.

4. HouseHaunters “Get Me Outta This Cage” Gorilla and Cage Costume Kit

(HouseHaunters)

A huge swath of humorous Halloween costumes really don’t make any sense. They’re a funny image, but the concept is just absurd. Why would a gorilla carry a human around in a cage? If the roles were reversed, could a human possibly carry a gorilla in a cage? Did the gorilla make the cage and then trap the human, or just happen to pick up a previously-trapped human in a cage? So many questions, such a relatively short holiday season to ponder them. Still, it’s pretty funny, and you can still fit a beer between the bars, so you’re set. Just one thing — if you opt for this one, lay off the Harambe jokes. We get it, already.

5. Rasta Imposta Cheeseburger Costume

(Rasta Imposta)

Dressing up as food never ceases to amuse. I think it has something to do with being able to answer, ‘What did you dress up as?’ with, ‘Oh, I went as a cheeseburger.’ Plus, to be fair, this is a photo-realistic cheeseburger, which must net you some style points or something. Even better, you can look forward to being serenaded with “The Cheeseburger Song” all night.

There are other ways you can go with this, too, of course. You have pancakes for the stacked jokes, doughnuts, tacos, and, why not, Spam.

6. Rasta Imposta Trophy Head Deer

(Rasta Imposta)

So you want something funny, but you don’t want to commit to a full-body costume. We have you covered. This is more of a hat or a mask than anything else. A good trick would be to stand really still against the wall and see how many of your drunk friends you can fool. If you want to make it a couples costume, you could give someone a toy rifle to be the hunter. The flannel shirt is separate.

You can always opt for the unicorn, moose, bear, or bass, too.

7. Faux Real Men’s Ugly Cardigan with Tie

(Faux Real)

While an ugly Christmas sweater is usually pretty humorous on its own, you can enhance this one by playing the straight man. During the entire duration of the Halloween party, play like you’re at a Christmas party. Pretend not to understand why no one else is readying for Santa. It’s funny enough to show up in this to a party, but selling it will make it go even further.

8. Rasta Imposta Ball Pit

(Rasta Imposta)

If you need help figuring out the humor angle on this one, I’m not sure I can help you. It’s a wearable ball pit. The jokes write themselves. It does come with the balls, but not enough to fill the pit. You can always pick up some more to be sure you have enough balls for people to play with.

9. Rasta Imposta Hamburger Helper Hand

(Rasta Imposta)

Sometimes, to get the laughs, you have to go random. Why not a cartoon hand mascot from everyone’s favorite(?) easy-to-make meal? First of all, you’re a giant hand. Secondly, you’re a retro-nostalgic cartoon character. It’s hard to go wrong. If it’s not quite crude enough for your tastes, but you’re digging the whole hand concept, you can get both the shocker and the finger. Or buy them all and go as a set with your buddies. In that context, I think the Hamburger Helper guy is funnier just because it’s unexpected.

10. Forum Novelties Men’s Old Cowhand Costume

(Forum Novelties)

An easy recipe for a funny costume is an iconic image plus cartoonish proportions. That’s what’s going on in this cowboy costume. Everything is oversized for the best comedic effect. This set comes with the hat, bandana, vest, and chaps. The inflatable revolver seems to not be available at the time of this writing, but you can always pick up a gun belt and badge. You’ll also need a ridiculous mustache and some cowboy boot covers to complete the look.
