I love Punny Costumes! (See my previous submission of Punniest Homemade EyePad). My husband thinks I’m crazy for making punny costumes and he just shakes his head like I’m a hopeless cause. It’s true! I’m a sucker for play-on-words types of costumes.
The key to a good punny costume is that it is DIY and relatively easy to make. I just cut out some cardboard in egg shapes and wrote the letters E, G, G and S (one letter per egg) on the cardboard. I mixed up the letters (in other words, “scrambled”) and duct taped them onto some string.
Then, tie the string around your neck to make a necklace where you can see all the letters. Glue on a couple of weights (small magnet or anything that will weigh down the letter) at the bottom of your letters (on the back) so your letters don’t spin around. Wear a yellow shirt to go with the egg theme.
I had lots of friends look at my costume and scratch their heads. Then, when they figured out what I was, the look of realization was priceless!
