Get a laugh with our punny (and cheap!) Halloween costumes

diy halloween costumes

If you’re anything like us, you may find yourself scrambling for a fun Halloween idea at the last minute. But it doesn’t have to look like you just threw something on. Look like you planned your Halloween costume for weeks with our favorite punny (and cheap!) outfits.

We linked everything you need for easy shopping!

Kevin Bacon

Write “KEVIN” on a name tag and a bacon costume (avoid the real stuff – we heard it attracts zombies on October 31st).


Glue slices of bread on a t-shirt or snag this even easier bread t-shirt, and throw some gold medals over your head.

Dust Bunny

Grab yourself some bunny ears and tail and carry a dust pan. Done and done!

Chip on the Shoulder

Buy some mini bags of chips and safety pin them to your shoulders. Maybe you’ll start a new shoulder pad trend – so hot.

Green Thumb

Safety pin some flowers on your outfit and use a green Sharpie to color your thumb green. You can use rubbing alcohol to remove the marker on your skin.

Wet Blanket

Wrap a cozy blanket around your shoulders (convenient for chilly nights!) and give your hair a wet look, which is so runway hot right now. You can use Layrite or any strong, shiny gel. Come it through and slick it back.

Honey Bee

This is a sweet costume. Carry around some honey (also a yummy snack) and write B on a plain t-shirt.

Party Animal

Pick your favorite animal accessories, we vote dog, and throw on a party hat. Bonus points if you pass out party blow out whistles to really be a party animal.

Party Pooper 

This pairs great with party animal for a couples costume idea. Try this poop emoji shirt with a party hat and blow out whistles.

We hope you have a safe and fun Halloween! Be sure to tag us in your social media posts so we can see what outfit you picked for the big day.

In most of our content, you see us having fun with, and making fun of, our family and our marriage.  There’s plenty to laugh at, there is also plenty to work on. This portion of our website is all about our ongoing quest to be better at being married to each other.  The content is a little longer form than the usual videos, but it will still make you laugh - and hopefully it’ll make you think a little!
Parodies and original music to make you smile.
We create videos that are meant to make you laugh. This is our podcast that is meant to make you think (and hopefully still laugh a little!).

About Us
The Holderness family has been dancing in pajamas and singing during snow days for years — but last year they hit the record button on the camera and published their goofy video on YouTube. Penn, Kim, Lola, and Penn Charles continue to make hilarious videos around tent-pole events and circumstances most families face.
