Long-time readers know that we often host in-house wordplay contests. Not only do we invite our friends at Penny/Dell Puzzles to participate, but our fellow puzzlers and PuzzleNationers as well!
This month, the challenge was to create a punny costume for a wordplay-fueled Halloween party!
Participants could use famous phrases, quotes, celebrities, characters, and anything else they could think of, just so long as there was a punny element to the inevitable costume!
With both text and art submitted, let’s check out what these clever puzzly minds came up with!
An enigmatic talk/game-show host… Rebus Fill-In
Just carry around pictures of Miss Kapowski, Miss Bundy, Dancer Gene, and Singers Clarkson and Rowland, then tear them up… Kelly Ripa
Someone all dolled up in a fabulous evening gown and hair stacked up high, but also wearing a flannel shirt, toting an axe, and covered in a bushy beard… RuPaul Bunyan
A man in a sharp suit, dyed entirely pink, smoking a pipe and asking about your mother… Pink Freud
Someone in a striped shirt and beret, wielding a sledgehammer in one hand and a plate of thin pancakes in the other… The Crepes of Wrath
Kim Kardashian riding a broomstick… a Flying Buttress
Slutty Sandy (from “Grease”) with Freddy Krueger hands and a Santa cap… Sandy Claws
A peanut butter cup carrying a ladle… Reese Witherspoon
A Great White shark dressed in a cereal box… The Jaws of Life
An impaled Italian Stallion dressed in his boxing outfit and gloves, accompanied by someone dressed as a Boston Red Sox player… Rocky Horror Pitcher Show
A plaid bowtie and cummerbund with a black pork pie hat, black sunglasses, and a goatee… Breaking Brad Majors
(Here’s one for a family!) Mom, Dad and kids all dressed like Freddy Krueger or Edward Scissorhands… The Blady Bunch
Picture it: A long time ago in a galaxy far far away…
A man with a Chuck Norris beard, scowl and cowboy hat, wearing a short trench over a black Jedi knight outfit looms in the doorway of a smuggler’s cantina. He slowly pushes back his coat with a robotic hand revealing his holstered sidearm and drops his lightsaber from his sleeve into his other hand…
