5 Easy DIY Halloween Costume Ideas

So you’ve been invited to a Halloween party. Or maybe your kids are insisting that you dress up when you go trick-or-treating.

Don’t be the neighborhood fuddy duddy without a costume! There are so many great Halloween costume ideas out there, from pre-packaged sets to totally unique DIY Halloween costume assemblies. Here are a few ideas to get your costume creativity flowing:

1. Find the perfect wig.

Halloween is the time to experiment with new hair! Wigs are a near-instant way to get into the spirit of disguise. Get a long shaggy wig, put on some tight pants and a black headband and go as a rocker from the 80s! Or wear a blue bob and some white clothing and go as a Waitress from the Future. Or a Cult Member. Wigs are so versatile!


2. Get creative with cardboard.

Cut some holes in a box, cover it with wrapping paper, attach some ribbon suspenders and go as a Christmas present! Or have your kids decorate the box for you with buttons and control panels and go as a Robot.


3. Accessorize.
