It beats plastic devil horns! Witty party-goers show off their pun-tastic Halloween costumes on social media (so how many do you recognise?)

  • Twitter users got creative with Halloween costumes this year with brilliant puns 
  • Lauren Holman, from Minnesota, dressed her family up as the Grapes of Wrath 
  • Eliza Orlins, from New York, dressed as Stormy Daniels/Stormi Jenner crossover

For many, dressing up for Halloween means a last-minute costume involving cutting holes in a white bed sheet or putting on a pair of cat ears.

But for others, the spooky season is the perfect time of year to truly show off their creativity and wit through incredible costumes.

From pop culture references to political commentary, social media users have seriously upped their pun game for this year’s costume competitions.

While one Twitter user dressed their family up as the Grapes of Wrath, complete with balloons and scythes, another went as ‘Plant Parenthood’ – her spin on Planned Parenthood – by carrying a potted plant in a baby sling.
