15 Always Sunny Halloween Costumes That Require Relatively Low Effort

It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia is one of the funniest shows ever recorded in the history of television — full stop. The first time I watched it was junior year of college, and my roommates would constantly hear hysterical laughter coming from my room. With a show with such nutty plot lines and eccentric characters, there’s a lot of untapped potential for Always Sunny inspired Halloween costumes. Granted, these are pretty niche for Halloween costumes, but people with taste will appreciate the effort. Some of these can be done solo, some of these work best for couples and some of these are best for groups. If I had time to meticulously go through every single episode for this list, it would probably be at least twice as long, but there’s always next year for a part 2.
