Have A Spook-Tacular Halloween With These Easy, Affordable Costume Ideas
Halloween is one of the most fun nights of the year as you’re free to become a kid again - playing dress up, coming up with the kookiest looks, and hoarding candy!
There are some people who spend days - and even weeks! - developing their most spook-tacular looks. But, for many of us who have little time or patience, we’re left stumped on how to come up with a passable Halloween outfit that’s easy on the pocket and which takes little time and effort to put together.
But don’t fret! All you need is a little imagination and creativity, and can use some of the clothes and accessories you already have a home.
Here are some fun, easy ideas:
A Witchin’ Good Time
If you have no time, simply look around in your closet for a long sleeved black or navy dress and heels, then pop on this sparkly witch’s hat, which you probably already have lying in your back closet or your niece’s closet.
This little quirky accessory just adds that perfect touch of fun. You can wear it with anything really – an all-black ensemble, color-blocked outfit or dress. It’s all about the details, so do pair this with other accessories to complete the look and be Trick-or-Treat ready.
THE NIGHT IS OURS
Channel the mystery of the Phantom of the Opera, and head out into the night with this masquerade mask and a cape! If you want more drama, you can easily spruce this up with a few sequins and glitter!
THIS IS SPARTA
If you’re thinking about a group costume, why not be the whole band of warriors from 300? This is the time to flaunt those curves and abs, and all you need is a red cape. Don’t forget to bring this prop to deliver the full affect.
Taking inspiration from the ghouls and ghosts of the season, paint your face to look like a skull and slip on these comfy gloves. You can wear a red hoodie and jeans and bring along a guitar – like the boy in Coco – or pull out one of your mom’s black lace veils to embody the full drama of the Dia de los Muertos.
