Are you looking for a Halloween costume this year but just don’t know what to be? You went as a vampire for the last three years and it doesn’t seem very original anymore. So maybe you need to break out of the mold and try something a little different. Maybe less spooky, and funnier. Here are 10 ideas for funny Halloween costumes to wear while trick or treating this year in Utah.

1. Inflatable T-Rex

This costume has not only become a classic costume, but also an internet sensation where a t-rex is seen doing everything from skateboarding to competing in American Ninja Warrior.

You can buy this costume so you can make your friends and family laugh too. Just don’t expect to reach things very well. And hugs may be out of the question. This costume is also available in kids sizes.

2. Ride an Elephant

Several variations of this costume exist, but this is one of the funniest. Show up to the costume party proving that you have the ability to tame this elephant. He even put you on his shoulders! Wear this elephant costume this year and show how in touch you are with your wild side.

3. Be Picked Up By an Alien

Along with the t-rex costume, inflatable costumes are all the rage right now. One of the funniest ones makes you appear to be picked up by an alien. And of course, everyone will wonder why you got chosen to be abducted and they didn’t. Perhaps they will be green with envy just like the alien? Pick up the Pick Me Up Alien costume and find out why the alien is abducting you. This costume is available in kids sizes.

4. Wrap It Up

Have you ever wanted to be rolled up nice and tight? Maybe with some beans and cheese? Well, today is your lucky day, because today is the day you find out you can be a burrito for Halloween this year.

5. Clean Chompers

Looking for a fun costume for you and your significant other? Well, you’re not going to find anything much better than the pairing of toothpaste and a toothbrush. No, unfortunately, the costumes won’t make your teeth any cleaner.

6. It’s PB&J Time

Another pair of funny Halloween costumes does come to mind: pb&j. This couples costume will take you back to the days when cutting the crust off your peanut butter and jelly sandwich was the best way to enjoy it. You might even say that dressing up with your partner in funny Halloween costumes like these is your jam.

7. Sink Your Teeth into this Costume

Jaws is likely getting a little old by now, but you don’t have to be old to enjoy this delicious costume that looks like you are getting actively eaten by a shark.

8. Whoopie

Who said being childish is a bad thing? If you have the most childish of children, then this whoopie cushion kids costume is a perfect companion to your childish little child. Are you a childish adult without a child? Don’t worry, they have a costume for you too.

9. Spooky Meal

You may have some beef with a child dressing up as a hamburger. No bun intended. But it may just be that this mouth-watering burger costume has made this writer hungrier than he already was. For burgers. Not children. Ew, gross. Why would you think I’d want to eat kids!?!? That’s awful!!!

10. Pet Raptor

Finally, you can’t be alone in your costume fun, so that’s when you get Fido involved. Dress your little pup up as a vicious velociraptor this Halloween. That is if Fido can keep it on for longer than 3 minutes without pulling it off.

Make Thriller your Halloween Tradition. (No costume required!)

See all your favorite Halloween Characters in Thriller! Frankenstein, Bride of Frankenstein, Zombies, Skeletons, Egyptians, Children of the Corn, Chuckie, Jason. Witches, and all your other favorite Halloween characters getting their groove on! Dance isn’t your thing? That’s OK. Even guys like Thriller! Performances are spooky, entertaining and even funny! Thriller has been a Halloween tradition in Utah for 22 years! It’s GREAT fun family for ages 12 and older.
