You are welcome, SW Missouri!

Clever and Funny Halloween Costumes
Funny Solo Halloween Costumes
Pregnant Nun Halloween Costume
An old but gold idea, this one always gets me giggling. If you want to upgrade to a couples costume, simply add milkman.
T-Rex Costume or inflatable dinosaur rider Halloween costume
This thing has been popping up everywhere and it is hilarious. It is available for purchase online and in select stores around Springfield, Mo., so be sure to get on it (literally and figuratively).
Inflatable chub suit Halloween costume
Another costume which can have a wide variety of uses, for example, the blueberry girl from Willy Wonka, a summon wrestler or a plus-sized chef, this one can also be found online or at select stores in and around Springfield, Mo.
Pizza Halloween costume
Seriously, who doesn’t love pizza?
Running Forest Gump Halloween Costume
Personally, I love Forest Gump and this costume is awesome. Get yourself some 80’s short shorts, a red trucker hat and a beard to end all other beards, and you have efficiently and effectively dressed yourself for Halloween on a budget!
Ride a president Halloween costume
Similar to the inflatable dinosaur rider costume, you can get more political on the back of the current or past POTUS.
Taco Belle Halloween Costume
This pun has been gracing the internet for a while, but it still makes me giggle. Dress like Belle from Beauty and the Beast, and on her classic yellow dress, make sure there are some taco prints. Done and done!
Go as a Meme for Halloween
I love memes – they are that which brightens my day on a rainy afternoon. Some of my favorites include the world’s most interesting man (make it a couples costume by dressing as Dos Equis beer), Doge, Kermit as the “that’s none of my business” meme, grumpy cat, forever alone guy or as Willy Wonka in “you must be so original.”
Mail order Bride Halloween Costume
This is a cute and easy costume – wear a white dress, do up your hair a makeup and put FedEx tape all around you. Done!
Crazy Cat Lady Halloween Costume
Another favorite, with grandma glasses and your hair in rollers, dress in a long robe with an ample supply of cats sewn into it.
ALL of the Avengers
This one had me laughing – carry Thor’s hammer, Captain America’s shield, Nick Fury’s eye patch, Hawkeye’s bow…you get the point.
One Night Stand Halloween Costume
Another oldie but goldie, the one-night stand costume is a classic. Whether you fashion your own or buy one online, you will be the talk of the costume party!
Bob Ross Halloween Costume
Another easy costume, just get the hair and clothes right and you are good to go. Want to make it a couples costume? Have your partner go as a “happy little tree.”
Deviled Egg Halloween Costume
I like puns, that’s how eye roll *snickers*. Get yo’self an egg costume and dress it up with horns, a devil’s tail and a pitchfork.
Dress up in a tux or suit with a sign around your neck that says, “I’m sorry.” You are welcome.
Couples Costume Ideas
Publishers Clearing House winner and presenter
Another low-budget costume, all you need is a guy in a suit with an oversized check from PCH and a lady in a robe, curlers in her hair and a shocked look on her face.
Milkman and pregnant housewife
If being a pregnant nun is too much, you could always go as a pregnant housewife instead. This way people at your church won’t side-eye too much!
Steve Irwin and Crocodile Halloween Costume
I honestly loved Steve Irwin as a kid and even bought some of his videos… I say “kid” but I was actually a teenager (don’t judge me). This is a great couples costume idea. I love it!
The Dude and Walter Halloween Costume
Another low-budget costume idea, go as the Dude from The Big Lebowski. If you wanna go with a partner, have him dress up as Walter with the famous sunglasses and a plastic gun.
Bob Ross and a Happy Little Tree Halloween Costume
We mentioned it above, but in case you didn’t see it, we put it here as well. You are welcome!
Peter Pan and his Shadow Halloween Costume
A couples costume idea, all you need to be Peter Pan’s shadow is a black morph suit and black attire. You can make it yourself or you can purchase this costume online.
Jack Daniels and Coke Halloween Costume
This one needs no explanation
A Pimp and his Ho Halloween Costume
Funny story – I coupled with my flight instructor back in the day for a Halloween party. It was extra hilarious because he was such a straight-laced man that all his peers got a shock to see him in this light. #goodtimes
Family Halloween Costume Ideas
The Addams Family
Willy Wonka’s crew
Crazy Cat lady (with a bunch of cats)
The Wizard of Oz
Jurassic Park Keepers and Velociraptor
Goldilocks and the Three Bears
A Mob Family
Cops and Robbers
