We’d argue that there are four main types of Halloween costumes: scary Halloween costumes, cute Halloween costumes, sexy Halloween costumes, and funny Halloween costumes. And in our opinion, funny Halloween costume ideas are some of the hardest to do well. It’s easy to cross the line from funny into cheesy or cliché, after all. Plus, with a funny Halloween costume, you run the risk of spending half your night explaining the joke to confused trick-or-treaters or party-goers. You want a hilarious Halloween costume, not a confusing one.

Still, the allure of a funny Halloween costume can be hard to resist. So, we rounded up 33 truly funny Halloween costume ideas. Sure, everyone’s sense of humor is different, but within this list of funny Halloween costumes for women, there are definitely at least a handful that will make you crack a smile. We rounded up hilarious Halloween costumes that you can buy at the store, ones you can DIY, and ones that are as simple as pulling on a t-shirt. And if your taste runs a little juvenile, we added in a couple of especially silly Halloween costumes, too. Hey, if it garners a few laughs, we’re all for it.
