3 Punny, Last-Minute Halloween Costumes

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at BC chapter.

Halloween is a week away! Have you figured out what you’re going to be yet? If you haven’t, fear not. Her Campus BC is here to help! Here are three easy-to-make Halloween costumes that you’re sure to love. Love puns? Then you need to check these out. 


If you’re a fan of the Office you’ve seen this one before. With less effort than creating a Facebook profile on a poster board, all this outfit requires is your face, the ability to spell the word “book”, and something to write on your face with. 

What you’ll need:

  • Face Paint

If you are looking to be a little fancier than that, get a magazine or book and cut out a hole for your head and bam! You have a “Face-Book” costume!

What you’ll need

  • Magazine
  • Scissors

Cereal Killer

Why dress up as a serial killer when you can go as a cereal killer?! You’ll have a great outfit complete with a snack for later in the night when you’re hungry at a party. All you need to do is stick the plastic knives in the cereal boxes and tape or glue the boxes to your clothing. 

What you’ll need.

  • Mini boxes of cereal
  • T-shirt
  • Tape or Glue
  • Plastic Knives 

Freudian Slip

For all you philosophy majors out there, this one’s for you. While a real Freudian Slip is ” verbal or memory mistake that is believed to be linked to the unconscious mind,” this one is a little more scandalous!

What you’ll need

  • A slip or dress
  • Tape
  • Paper
  • Marker

Whatever you choose to be or plan to do, make sure to be responsible and stay safe! On behalf on Her Campus BC, we wish you a Happy Halloween!
