The Best Funny Halloween Costumes

Many people imagine Halloween to be scary ? and for the most part that is how it is celebrated. But why be just like everyone else this Halloween, stand out and be funny. There is a trend rapidly moving across America that is turning Halloween funny. The idea of turning into someone or something else for Halloween has not gone out the window just the idea that it needs to be scary. Halloween parties are often filled with children and young adults. Asking your guests to dress in non-scary costumes is a way that everyone, no matter what their age, will have a great time. There will be no worries of scaring the little ones (or maybe even some of the older ones ? you know who you are).

After much research we have found the following costumes to be a big hit among the non-scary categories this year.

Candy M and M?s

M and M?s have gone big this year. Especially with the talking M and M candy commercials that are such fun to watch. Each color has taken on a personality of their own. There are two distinct M and M costumes available. The first is a traditional M and M candy. It covers the entire body with your arms, legs and face poking out of the costume. The second is a tank dress for young women. This is modeled more after the sexy green M and M on the commercials -although it does come in red and yellow also.

Angry Birds

Of course these costumes are modeled after the popular video game Angry Birds. Just about everywhere you look you will see this popular costume. Whether you choose red or yellow you will be a hit with angry birds.

Gnomeo and Juliet

Gnomeo and Juliet made a splash this summer at the box office and those adorable garden gnomes are still hanging around. There are a variety of garden gnome costumes. This costume is fun because you can personalize it by adding your own colors, suspenders even fun gnome shaped hats. An entire family of gnomes is very funny.


If we mention the gnomes we have to mention the Smurfs. A close cousin to the Gnome is the Smurf costume. Of course this costume includes your body turning blue. Be safe and don't use anything toxic on your skin to turn blue here. Try blue face paint, blue pants or leggings and a blue long sleeved shirt and white gloves for your hands.

There are many more options for non-scary Halloween costumes. Look in your local stores or go on line to get ideas for your costume. Be creative and come up with a funny Halloween costume all on your own by re-watching some of your favorite movies and getting ideas from there. Some of the most fun characters might be from when you were a kid. How about a character from one of your favorite books or television show.

Remember this, the point about a non-scary Halloween is to have a great time and not worrying about you or your youngsters getting scared. If you have been invited to a non-scary Halloween party don?t show up in something scary ? after all, the host has a reason for stating non-scary on their invitation. You may be surprised how scary it gets for you if you show up and scare the other guests.

Funny Halloween Costume Ideas – Halloween Skeleton

How to Make a funny Halloween Costume Skeleton

There are just so many scary things at Halloween, but possibly none as scary as the Halloween skeleton costumes. It seems that many people, both young and old, are attracted to the skeleton. Just the thought of bones is what scares most people. Therefore, at Halloween time traditionally there are a great number of people in costumes seen running around town that have at least part of a skeleton attached to it.

It is quite easy to make your own skeleton costume. Most people buy costumes year after year, but with the rising costs these days, it is cheaper to take a few minutes of time and make your own. It only takes a few supplies and some imagination to fashion your very own designer Halloween skeleton costume. Doing it this way is also more fun than just buying it from a store.

Just take any dark shirt you may have laying around and use that as your starting point. This can be a t- shirt or a sweatshirt. Whatever plain black shirt you have will work. If you don’t have a black one, navy blue works just as well. You can make a full skeleton costume by adding a pair of black pants, such as sweat pants. Pieces of cardboard and white chalk, or fabric chalk, are other supplies you will need.

Once you have your supplies assembled, you can get started making your Halloween skeleton costume. Cut the cardboard to fit inside the arms of the shirt, if you have chosen a long sleeved one. Another piece of cardboard should be cut to fit inside the chest of the shirt. Once the cardboard is inside the shirt, lay it on a flat surface. Use your white chalk or fabric chalk to draw bones on the shirt. If you happen to be doing this for a child, let this be a learning experience by explaining what bones go where as you are drawing them. Even if you aren’t an artist, this will still be fun.

The bones you will want to be sure are there include the neck bones, back bones, ribs, and possibly the hip bones. You can add gloves to the costume if you want, and draw in finger bones. The design for your Halloween skeleton is limited only by your imagination.

Not only is this costume rather spooky, but it can be made on the spur of the moment. It is one that can be worn for Trick or Treating, or to an adult party. So, it is quite versatile. To top off the costume, you have the option of either painting your face white, or wearing a simple white mask.

Be creative with some finishing touches to make the Halloween skeleton costume your own. Above all have fun creating and wearing your very own funny Halloween costume.

Printable Halloween Masks

pumpkin bounce md wht Printable Halloween MasksWe can make printable Halloween masks fairly easily ourselves now that so many of us have access to computers and printers. While these may not be as realistic as some of the expensive masks you buy in stores and costume shops, they can still serve a purpose. When you pay a lot of money on a mask for a small child, it may turn out to be money wasted. Masks can make a child very hot, making it appear hard to breathe, or even see through. Printable masks are much cheaper and can be made to fit any face.

There are many websites online that have printable Halloween masks that you can get access to for free. These are mostly found at websites for kids, but there are also those that can be used for adult masks. Depending on what you want your mask to look like, there are different supplies you will want to assemble once you have printed out the mask of your choice.

A child’s mask is very easy to craft and is also a lot of fun. The search for the perfect mask can be a large part of the fun. Keep in mind what the end result is supposed to be when looking at the different printable Halloween masks. Once you find something that fits your vision, print it out and get to work.

The first thing you will want to do is trace this mask on a piece of poster board. It will need something to give it support and substance to stay on without tearing. Cut out the poster board mask and glue it to the back of the printed version. Let it dry completely before doing any more work on it. Any coloring, painting or decorating can be done after this. Depending on what you want the mask to look like, you will need things like paint, glitter, or anything else you can think of that you would like to put on your mask.

If you are making these printable Halloween masks for children, you will need to make small slits or holes on the sides of the mask to run either a string, elastic, or ribbon through. This will hold the masks on their faces. Using an Exacto knife is the best way to cut these holes as well as the eyes, nose and mouth into the masks. They cut more precisely and you don’t run the risk of tearing the holes. Adults can simply use a tongue depressor or emery board attached to one side of the mask to hold it up their faces.

This is something that all the family can get involved. Printable Halloween masks have more choices for you every year. You can enhance and complete them yourself and you can use your own imagination and creativity. Since this is the one day of the year you can be anything or anyone you want you should take full advantage and make your Hallowen mask accordingly.
