39 Witty Instagram Captions For Halloween That Are Anything But Basic

Originally Published: 

Halloween is, well, Halloween. You can't help but enjoy it — at least a little. There's so much to love: Halloween candy, costume parties, the cooler autumn weather, and, of course, all of your friends together and celebrating. It's an excuse to hang out with your besties, that potential crush you've had your eye on, and consume more candy than necessary. Basically, Halloween is where it's at. Whether you love it or hate it, there's at least a little bit of fun to be had. Between all of the fun and the laughs, you obviously have to take some pictures, and you'll need a bunch of funny captions for Halloween to go along with your snaps.

If there's one thing Halloween is great for, it's the Instagram pictures. You've spent weeks perfecting and DIY-ing your costume (or costumes, if you're hitting up a bunch of parties). The accessories are perfect, right to down to the makeup and hair. If you have a group costume, you pretty much have to slay it (which, of course, you do, because you're a #queen). Once you know you've crushed it completely with the idea and presentation, there's no shame in taking a few quality pics with the squad. Because, let's face it, if it's not on the 'Gram, it didn't happen.

But the most important part about posting a picture on Instagram is coming up with a creative and witty caption. Choosing just the right words for your post can be challenging. The right picture with the perfect caption can go a long way as far as likes are concerned. So, these 39 funny Halloween Instagram captions will match any post you want to put on your page this year.
