Top 10 Punny Halloween Costumes—Animal Edition

Long live the pumpking! Maybe next year I’ll do an all-gourd edition.

Regular readers may have noticed that I have a deep, abiding love for both puns and Halloween. Celebrating the combination of the two is becoming an annual tradition around here; see Top 10 Punny Halloween Costumes and 10 More Punny Halloween Costumes if you missed them the first time around (and especially if you need a last-minute costume idea).

But you know what I like better than puns or Halloween costumes? Animals. And you know what I like better than animals? Animals in punny Halloween costumes, of course. Why, they’re pawsitively purrfect!

If you’re a pun/Halloween/animal lover like me, these costumes will leave you ast-hound-ed and a-mew-sed.

10. Rufferee

Always calls a foul for unnecessary ruffness.

9. Pool Shark

I think Paul Mewman won an Oscar for this one.

8. Baked Pugtato

Pairs nicely with a pugkin spice latte, obvi.

7. Santa Claws

You better watch out … because Santa Claws will scratch your face off for making him wear this humiliating costume.

6. Sheep Dog / Corn Dog / Watch Dog / Hot Dog

That’s a mutt-load of dog puns!

5. I Dream of Weenie

Your wish is her command. Because she’s a dog, and that’s the deal they make with humans.

4. Harry Trotter

He spends the last two books looking for Lord Voldemort’s Horse-cruxes.

3. Muttley Cyrus

She came in like a rrrrrrrecking ball.

2. Bunny Bee

Or maybe it’s a rab-bee-t?

1. Slow Cooker

Slow and steady wins the punny Halloween costume countdown.

10 More Punny Halloween Costumes

It’s that time of year again. The leaves are turning, the air is nipping, and food is being pumpkin spiced. But most importantly, people are creating their pun-based Halloween costumes.

Last year I celebrated the season with the Top 10 Punny Halloween Costumes. This year I found ten more punderful costumes that you can use to show how clever/broke/last-minute you are. Enjoy!

10. A Salt and Battery

The defendants are being charged with felony wordplay.

9. Cap-Sized Ship

Not to get nitpicky, but I think this is slightly larger than cap-sized. Still, good work with the cardboard.

8. Cereal Killer

She’s homicidal for Cocoa Puffs.

7. A Brush with Death

Who knew the Grim Reaper was so concerned with oral hygiene?

6. The Diction-Fairy

She has the magical power of reading.

5. A Bag of Eminems

Hi, my name is (what) my name is (who) my name is (chicka-chicka) Slim Bag-Lady.

4. God’s Gift to Women

This one’s for all the literalists out there.

3. Dunkin’ Donuts

America runs, dribbles, jumps, shoots, and scores on Dunkin’.

2. Iron Man

This suit doesn’t fly, but it does eliminate wrinkles. Your move, Tony Stark.

1. Bud Light-Year

I’ve set my lasers from stun to swill.

Top 10 Punny Halloween Costumes

Okay, it’s not really a costume, but hey: steam punkin!

Over on the , I’ve been counting down the days to the best holiday, Halloween, with a celebration of pun-based costumes. Just in case you missed the countdown, here are the highlights:

10. Pugkin Spice Latte

Adorable and seasonal.

9. 50 Shades of Grey

The SFW version.

8. Fantasy Football

The best defense is a good Gandalf.

7a. Reigning Cats and Dogs

7b. A Coat of Arms

The writers on New Girl clearly love a good pun. Not pictured: Bee Arthur.

6. Cleocatra

This is possibly the only costume a cat would be proud to wear. She still looks a little embarrassed, though.

5. Spelling Bees

Combining three of LJBC’s favorite things: spelling, puns, and cuteness.

4. Chicken Cord on Blue

Still scrambling to put something together? This is probably the easiest last-minute costume on this list.

3. Heisenburger

Feeling sad about the end of Breaking Bad? This will cheer you up.

2. French Kiss

Rock ‘n’ rolling all night fills them with such ennui, no?

1. Stegatortoise

Cutest costume ever. This seriously makes me want to take up crochet. And reptile ownership.

Samuel Johnson famously claimed that puns were the lowest form of humor, but I think this post proves that a good pun is its own reword. Happy Halloween, everyone!
