LAST MINUTE DIY HALLOWEEN COSTUMES

7:30 PM

It's that time of year again! Halloween is only a weekend away and although I spend all year thinking about what I'm going to be and pinning ideas on Pinterest, it never fails that I wait until the last 1-2 weeks to decide on a costume. That would be fine if I wanted to just run into Party City or Walmart to buy a costume, but I love to DIY plus all the good costumes have been picked over by the non-procrastinating Halloween shoppers so it's nearly impossible to find anything good. But don't fear, if you're like me and waited because, in today's post, I've put together 3 costume ideas that are quick, and CHEAP!


COSTUME 1: FRENCH MIME







Silence is Golden, and so is this easy costume! I bet you already have all of these items in your closet, that if you wake up next week and realize it's October 31st, you have a costume all ready to go!

WHAT YOU"LL NEED:
  • Striped Shirt
  • Back Pants
  • Red Beret
  • Suspenders (I DIYed mine but I actually found some in Walmart's Halloween section for $3)
  • White Gloves (So I'm guessing you don't have these laying around... neither did I! Purchased for $4 at my local Halloween shop)
  • Liquid Eyeliner
  • Red Lipstick
  • Awkard Hand motions and facial expressions!

COSTUME 2: CANDY CORN




Earlier this month, Twitter got into a heated debate about this classic candy! But whether you love candy corn or think it should be flushed down the toilet, you'll look sweet in this easy costume, and even the candy corn haters will get a toothache!

WHAT YOU"LL NEED:
  • 3 Large T-shirts (I got mine from Goodwill)
    • White
    • Yellow
    • Orange
  • Party Hat (painted white with craft paint)
  • White Tights (optional)
You can either put some sewing skills to the test or break out the fabric glue for this DIY! Cut the top of the orange shirt and attach it to the middle of the white shirt and do the same with the yellow, but attach it to the bottom of the orange shirt to follow the Candy Corn pattern. Top with your white party hat. I also paired my shift with white tights to keep my legs warm!

COSTUME 3: RINGLEADER






All eyes will be on you in the center of the Ring, like a Circus in this costume! This one requires a little more work because you'll need an old Red Jacket or Blazer you don't mind cutting up and decorating! 

WHAT YOU"LL NEED:
  • Red Jacket or Blazer (Again, I found mine at good ole Goodwill)
  • Gold Fringe and Decorative Trim
  • Black Hat
  • Black Shorts or Pants
  • Black Fashion tights (if you decide to wears shorts)
  • Black OTK or tall boots
  • DIY Riding Crop (cat dangle toy found at Dollar Store)
I ended up cutting the back of my blazer to give it that Tuxedo Tailcoat look and stitched the sides up with a sewing machine. And hot glue the fringe on the shoulders to make to Epaulettes! The Jacket was the only thing I had to DIY and it was pretty simple!

Hope you guys have a spooktackular Halloween!
