What's better than a pun-based fancy dress costume? A pun-based fancy dress costume that only costs you 5p to make. If you used the bag to carry home your bottles of budget Lidl booze for the party then you can basically claim it was free.

 

2. Ginger bread man:

Works best if you're actually ginger in the first place, but if not then some hair spray'll sort you. This costume gets bonus points for also being a late-night snack.

 

3. Hodor and Bran:

Very topical, but also TOO FUCKING SOON.

 

4. One-night stand:

You might not get yourself a one-night stand wearing this, but it's worth it for the pun.

 

5. 404 error:

So fucking lazy, but perfect if you're one of those guys who secretly hates dressing up but doesn't want to go full party pooper.

"HI, I'M BARRY SCOTT, AND I'M GOING TO SHOUT THIS CONTINUOUSLY AT ALL THE OTHER PARTY GUESTS UNTIL THEY GET REALLY FED UP WITH ME AND EVENTUALLY ASK ME TO LEAVE!"

Effortlessly cool, and one of your five-a-day while you're at it.

A costume that is both a genius pun and good for preventing sexually transmitted infections – it's a surefire winner!

"HE'S MADE A COSTUME OUT OF NOTHING BUT A CARDBOARD BOX, IT'S UNBELIEVABLE JEFF!"

Get it... Because they're spices. And he's got a rack.

 

12. Fifty Shades of Grey:

Or as an alternative version of this costume you could dress up in skimpy leather and carry a whip around. Whichever floats your boat really.

 

13. Identity thief:

So lazy it's criminal.

 

14. Naked Sim:

Or if you want to be especially cheap, ditch the naked part and just make the green diamond bit. Just don't get in any swimming pools.

 

15. Cards Against Humanity:

Works for a group of any size (the more the better).

 

16. Nudist on strike:

Officially the laziest fancy dress costume in existence, and yet will probably get you more attention than someone who's been planning their outfit for months.
