Pun Costumes for You and Your Friends
Dressing up with your crew is even more fun when you wear pun costumes as a group.
Ladies, grab your best girlfriends and start by choosing a herb or spice for each member of your crew, such as basil, oregano, cinnamon, or rosemary.

Rock lovers will appreciate this funny and easy group costume. Start with a classic French look with a black and white horizontal striped shirt and a black beret. Then get out your face paints and recreate the wild face makeup of the band KISS, and voila! – instant laughs.
Pun Costumes for You and Your Significant Other
What could be cuter than pun costumes for couple’s on Halloween? Have fun with one of these ideas.
Men – dress the part of a postal worker, with a simple short sleeved button-up shirt and black shorts or pants. Create a postal service badge and carry a messenger bag stocked full of envelopes. Ladies – put on that old wedding dress that has been sitting in the closest, or hit up a thrift store to get the bride look that completes this cheeky costume.
50 Shades of Grey
