Funny New Adult Halloween Costumes 2024 - Most Popular Last Minute Costumes for Halloween

So.  Halloween.  Am I right?  Let’s just call it like it is; 2024 is a total dumpster fire of a year.  It’s all terrible.  Everything.  Do you even think you’ll be going to a Halloween party?  We’re already over it and we know you are too.  But, alas, here we all are trying to plan a costume just in case.  Look, even if you’re going to just put it on to sit on your couch to drink, don’t throw in the towel right yet.  Oh, and go wash your hands.  Always just wash your hands, anyway.

You know what we’re not going to do?  We’re not going to come up with a list of “The Hottest Costumes of the Year.”  Those sites usually list 100 different costumes.  It’s like, thanks for the help.  Now you’ll have to scroll for an hour.  Plus, every costume that’s “the most popular” is almost always certainly out of stock or you have to purchase the knock-off on eBay for upwards of a mortgage payment.

So welcome to our Halloween Costume Guide for Adults (or, like, kids who are just really tall for their age).  These certainly aren’t the hottest, the funniest, or the newest.  But, you know what?  They’re good.  They’re just good costumes.  Sure some may give you a small laugh (like the one you do through your nose) and some are kind of new but most are just classic standard options that won’t cost you are ton, may actually be in stock, and won’t be seen on everyone else at the party you’re going to on your Zoom call party.

So check out some of our best Halloween costumes for 2024.  Is this year over yet?
