The spooky holiday is right around the corner, and it’s time to make decisions on what to be. Store bought costumes can be expensive, ranging from $45-$50 just for a simple ghost. If your time is running out and you’re in deep desperation for a costume that is affordable, creating a costume yourself could be the best option. Here are four trendy, cheap, and easy DIY suggestions for this Halloween.

THE BELOVED MOVIE CHARACTER

Dressing up as favorite costumes from popular movies is always a good idea. The characters are easily recognizable and the costumes can often be made from items that you probably already have in your closet. The first DIY costume suggestion we have is Boo from Monsters, INC.

For this costume you will need: purple leggings, an oversized pink shirt, white shoes or socks

Arrange your hair  in pigtails with pink ribbons or barrettes.

THE SOCIAL MEDIA FAN CLUB

Being around your friends and having fun is an amazing part of Halloween. Doing group costumes will show how close and creative you all are. Dressing as social media is also a smart way to be noticed around school and get compliments from your peers. This DIY costume is “Social Media Platforms.” For these costumes, you will need materials to reflect some of the most popular social media sites.  All logos will be attached to the clothing in a manner most comfortable for the wearer and based on whether or not you intend to reuse the clothing.  Staples, iron-on transfers, hot glue or crazy glue are suggested.

Twitter: Blue dress, black boots, and a cut out of the twitter logo to place on the dress
Instagram: A multi colored t-shirt (tie-dye), black leggings, brown boots, and a cut out of the Instagram logo
Snapchat: A yellow tank top, white long sleeve shirt, white leggings, black flats, and a cut out of the Snapchat logo

THE CEREAL KILLER

Trying to find something to be for Halloween as male is sometimes a challenge.   But the perfect idea and not-so-extra costume would be the “Cereal Killer.”  It is simply, fun, and not at all girly.

For this you will need :

  • Small cereal boxes
  • A white t-shirt
  • Red paint
  • Plastic spoons

To create this costume, you will staple or glue the boxes randomly on the t-shirt. Glue the broken plastic spoon to the box. Lastly, splatter red paint on the shirt to look like blood.

DALMATIAN AND FIREFIGHTER (PERFECT FOR COUPLES)

Many students in our community are in a relationship. If you and your partner want to have a costume that sends the message “we go together” to the world, try out this idea. It is both cute and school appropriate.

For this costume you will need :

Firefighter

  • Red suspenders
  • White or black t-shirt
  • Yellow fire hat
  • Brown boots

Dalmatian

  • White t-shirt
  • Black paint or black construction paper
  • White, pink, and black felt
  • Old plastic headband

To achieve the dalmatian you will need to either paint spots on the shirt, or cut out back spots from paper and glue it randomly on the shirt. Next, cut ears out from black felt. Then cut the same shape, yet smaller, using white felt, and the same shape smaller using pink felt. Glue the felt together in ascending size, then glue it to the headband.
