As Halloween begins to loom nearer, we’re already thinking about what we’re going to dress up as this year. And guys, there are some really great options so far. You and your friends could go as the cast of Inside Out or maybe as the ladies from Orange Is the New Black. But if you’re looking for a costume that is going to get you all the LOLZ (or should we say hahas), you should definitely consider trying one of these hilariously punny costumes.


1. Animal Cookie: If this is baby’s first Halloween, use the opportunity for some serious punning! Have one parent dress as an animal, another as a cookie and dress up your baby as a super colorful animal cookie! For the full DIY, head over to this blogger’s site. (via A Joyful Riot)


2. Ginger Bread Man: Embrace those red locks with this hilarious costume that you can buy at the grocery store. (via Reddit)
