DIY Round-up: Halloween Costumes

Posted By on Oct 19, 2015 in Handmade Love and Inspiration

Halloween is almost here, and if you’re feeling festive, here are a few handmade costume ideas for you. All of these tutorials are free, without using hugely complicated supplies or materials, and they’re all for YOU. (And, just because that’s my personal preference, you won’t find any references here to “slutty {fill in the blank}” as a costume idea.) So let’s get rounding up!

DIY Halloween Costumes for Women

  1. Scarecrow – You probably have most of this in your closet already. Grab a straw hat and a “monster” make-up kit and you’re good to go!
  2. Rosie the Riveter – headband, jeans, chambray shirt, tough-as-nails attitude: done.
  3. Carmen SanDiego – Get your winter coat early this year and you’ll be all set, no matter where in the world you’ll be celebrating Halloween.
  4. Famous or Fictional – This is actually a list of 10 ideas. Grab your long black dress and be Holly Golightly, or throw on a jacket with boots & leggings and you can be Katniss!
  5. Shop your closet – Basic wardrobe staples make up this 3-part collection: gypsy, fortune teller, pirate. Shiver me timbers!
  6. Snow White – This idea could easily be applied to other princesses, as well. Get creative with your color choices and you don’t have to wear a bikini top or a ball gown to rock the look.
  7. Buffy – Grab a normal 90s-teenager outfit and a sharp piece of wood and you’re all set!
  8. Liz Lemon – If you’re a brunette who wears glasses, you’re already halfway there.
  9. Emoji – Fans of little smiley faces and creepy dancing twins, unite!
  10. Dorothy – Grab that gingham dress from summer, a pair of red shoes and braid your hair. With a click of your heels you’ll be done!
