If you are not a fairy tale fan yourself, here are some ideas on what you can get for your daughter. In fact, you could probably win a contest with some of the ideas below. I, as a matter of fact, seldom am. Not a week passes by without an event being hosted on Main Street and you can really see how vibrant the area feels when residents from all around the city gather up for these events. When the event you knew was going to happen for weeks suddenly appears, it can be really hard to look at your wardrobe and come up with a costume. Make sure you have some tape and safety pins on hand, because these easy, DIY Halloween costumes are all you’re going to want to wear this year.
Really, all you need is to get creative with your makeup — and you don’t even have to be a pro to get the look down. Everyone loves a sheet ghost — even Lady Gaga (pictured above). Another excuse to be clad in all-black — and put your cat ear headband to use. And all it requires is a leopard outfit (a catsuit if you’re feeling extra festive) and a cat ear headband. The classic cat look that never goes out of style! Now, I just have the clothes in my closet and a desperate hope that I can figure this out. In the end, all you need to do is finish preparing the food, welcome the guests, and have a good time.
You don’t really need a purple and green suit to get the Joker look. I personally love this TikTok tutorial above, and you can steal the look without too much work. Lil Huddy, or Chase Hudson, is another TikToker famous for, well, just being on TikTok and doing his thing (and sometimes causing drama with other TikTokers). You can easily achieve a batty look with a black hoodie, trash bags, and black paper. For those looking for a costume that works for everyday Zoom calls, a white and black collared Wednesday Addams look fits the bill perfectly. All you need to do is cut the black garbage bag into two and tape each half to the arms and side of your hoodie to get a webbed wing look. Then you can cut your paper into bat-ear shapes and tape those to the hood.
Then of course, you would need a white felt hat to top off your homemade Smurf costume. Splurge for this full look or throw a witch hat on with a prairie dress, and you’re done! You can easily create this look with a zipped-up leather jacket, or splurge on the full costume with gloves included. Use the same makeup to blacken up your arm from the elbow down to create the look of Furiosa’s prosthetic Finally you need lots of belts. You can use a simple, long black dress; the only part you have to nail is the severe makeup look.
Any scary costume, pun costume, or DIY costume to choose from out there is made even better when you have someone to dress up with you because nothing is as fun without your partner (or partners) in crime, amirite? Hopefully, you’ll run into some child dressed as Dorothy while out trick-or-treating. Hopefully, your own trick-or-treater won’t get any rocks in place of candy this year. Halloween was just so great this year! To still look your absolute spookiest without having to break the bank, you’ll want an easy, DIY Halloween costume that doesn’t cause you a lot of fuss. Also, even if your costume is pulled together from a few clothes and scraps lying around your house, it still has tons of potential to be the absolute coolest.
