We all have a little beast inside of us, and if you are eager to let yours out, this halloween might be the best time! From lions, to tigers, to bears (oh my!) there is no end of options. And, since you can be as obscure as you want, you can stand out! An Axolotl costume may take work, but it will be worth it.

If your wit is already exploding out of you, then you will have no problem tapping into your creativity to create the perfect pun related costume.

The key is to take everything literally and don’t be afraid of the groan.

You could be a holy cow, radio head, nickelback, deviled egg, or an endless variety of others. These costumes are quick, simple, and cheap.

Let’s Get Scary

Break out the fake blood and clown makeup, things are about to get scary.

If you are looking for a frightening costume this year, there are definitely enough options to send anyone running. And if you are willing to work with prosthetics and liquid skin, you may even scare yourself.

If you are looking for something easy, however, give this quick Carrie look a try. Just don’t forget the dead pan scare that brings this character to life.

Need more of a challenge? The website Make: has some great tutorials.

It’s a Group Effort
