Halloween may not be right around the corner, but it is never too soon to start planning your costume. Most probably in October everybody will be looking for the perfect costume that will make them stand out of the crowd. If you start making your costume now, you will have less things to worry in October. Given that most costumes are available in stores and online, chances are you and other 3 people will be wearing the same costume, which would be an awkward situation. Granted, there are many great costumes out there, and if you really don’t feel like making your own costume, go to the greathalloweencostume.com website. You will surely find something cool there. However, if you want to really make a good impression with an original costume that no one will show up wearing, here are some ideas of easy DIY costumes for this year’s Halloween.
Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz
If you want to become Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz, you can create your own version of the character using items you surely have in your closet or you can purchase so that you will be able to wear them for other occasions. You will need a white blouse with ruffled sleeves, a light blue overall skirt or a plaid blue skirt, and a pair of red shoes. Split your hair in two, braid it and tie it at the end with some blue ribbons. A basket in one hand and you are ready to start looking for the way but to the Halloween party.
This is an excellent costume idea that is very easy to make using a red skirt, a top, a marker and some pompoms. Apply the tiny pompoms on the top and cover it entirely, then use a marker to draw a knob and a 25c price on the skirt. Just make sure everyone inserts the coin before taking a pompom off.
This is one of the easiest, yet most effective DIY Halloween costumes, considering it mimics a macabre movie character. To become Wednesday Addams, you will need a black dress with white collar and cuffs, a pair of black leggings and black shoes. Braid your hair in two side tails and make sure you get into the attitude of the always-serious Wednesday.
Olaf the snowman
Since the Frozen movie, everybody wants to be Elsa or Ana, but what do you say about a DIY Olaf costume? You will need an all-white outfit, starting with a white hat and ending with a pair of white pants. Apply three large round black buttons on the shirt and make a carrot nose out of orange paper and you are ready to melt at the Halloween party.
If you and your partner are out of costume ideas, here is one you can make yourself and create a great couples costume. With a pair of black pants, a striped shirt, a black mask and a black hat, you two can become two burglars ready to steal the Halloween candy.
