Pun Intended: Costumes with a Punch Line
Let's face it: people love corny costumes. With a little imagination, just about anyone can create a costume based on a common phrase or punch line.
For instance, you can just throw on some white clothes, then cut a yellow circle out of yellow fabric and attach it to your stomach. Add some devil horns and a pitch fork, and voila! You're a "Deviled Egg."
Or... be a "Gold Digger." Wear a gold dress, gold accessories, gold glitter in your make-up and hair, etc. Paint a toy shovel gold and carry a bag of "gold" nuggets.
And pun costumes can be perfect when you need a last-minute idea. Have only five minutes before the party and still nothing to wear? Try some of these suggestions for a quick, easy, laugh:
Attach a dollar to each ear (get it? Buck-an-Ear).
