You don’t have to be a (chronological) kid to enjoy Halloween: Dressing up never gets old, even as we get older. Finding good costumes for people over 60, though, can be tough — especially when so many costumes for women push the “sexy” looks. But there are funny Halloween costumes for people over 60 and we have proof!
Yes, women and men over 60 are still extremely sexy, but that doesn’t mean they want to get dressed up like sexy vampires or schoolgirls. Luckily, some really hilarious costumes are out there that aren’t too revealing, too complicated or too expensive — perfect for the over-60 set. Here are five funny costumes for people over 60.
You might have seen this Inflatable t-rex costume on YouTube, where wearers engage in every imaginable activity while wearing it. It’s gut-burstingly funny in person, too — and it’s great for people of any age or sex. Go ahead: Show up at your Halloween party without saying a word, and see how long it takes everyone to figure out who you are. You can also ride a dinosaur, if that’s more your style.
You know who else is getting a little bit older but still kicks ass? The members of KISS. This KISS costume is not only hilarious: It also has good coverage, comfort and suitability for both men and women. You can even do most of the costume yourself after you get a wig and some face paint.
If you’re round and bald, take advantage of the situation with a Minion costume. If you have grandkids, they’ll love it. And even if you don’t, everyone else recognizes these iconic…things…from Despicable Me. If you don’t want to splurge on the full-body costume, recreate the look with some overalls, a yellow shirt, a yellow swim cap and some goggles.
One of the best costume trends of the past couple of years is “onesie” animals, like this panda costume. They’re super-comfy, warm, easy to put on and roomy. They are also affordable and all-in-one, so you don’t have to worry about buying a bunch of accessories before Halloween. Check out the cow, giraffe and elephant, too.
Here’s another funny option for people over 60: The genius “sandwich board” costumes that you can slip on over black pants and t-shirt. Most are one-size-fits-all, and they go on and come off easily. This taco costume is particularly zany, but lots of other choices are just as silly. You’ve been a lot of things in life by now, but we bet you’ve never been bacon, avocado or sushi.
