Halloween costumes are fun to create. Many items to use with your Halloween costume can be found in your home or local thrift store. Creating costumes can be inexpensive and a lot of fun to make and wear. You’ll find that some of these will also work as last-minute Halloween costume ideas.
Here are 25 costume ideas to help inspire you to create your own costume this year. It can be pretty simple to put together a costume and after you’ve decided on one, browse the websites of online Halloween retailers for your costume. You may have some more ideas. Use your imagination and creativity when making a costume, as this makes the costume unique and truly yours.
Dracula: For this scary costume you will need a pair of black pants, a white long-sleeved shirt, a black jacket and a white vest. She is wearing a black collared cloak and a gold necklace. She smooths her hair back with the hair gel. She wears pale face makeup, dark eyes and bloody lips with blood also dripping from her mouth and, of course, vampire teeth.
A witch: You will need a long black dress with long sleeves, a witch hat, black shoes and a broom. She is wearing green and gray face makeup and dark gray lipstick. A fake wart on the nose would also help. Blacken some of your teeth for a really bad effect.
Tom Sawyer: Wear a worn-looking jumpsuit, a matte plaid shirt, and be sure to go barefoot. Put a straw hat on your head and chew on a rather long piece of straw. You can also add freckles to your checks and make your feet dirty.
A genius: You will need a pair of baggy pants that fit snugly at the ankles and a top or vest to match. Use a brightly colored scarf as a belt tied around your waist. Wear wide bracelets on her arms and large hoop earrings. Go barefoot. Make a fabric turban and add a large plastic jewel to the front of the turban with fabric glue. If you can’t find the pants this outfit requires, use a pair of baggy pants and tie the pants up to the ankles with a colorful ribbon and make the pants look puffy.
Instead of a turban, you could gather your hair in a ponytail on top of your head. Add some glitz to your hair. Wrap a thin scarf on the lower part of the face.
Peter Pan: Using a dark green fabric, create a tunic that comes above the knee and has a jagged hem and jagged sleeves. She is wearing black or opaque green tights, a black belt and black shoes. He makes a hat using the green fabric and add a feather to the hat. Put a dagger under your belt and you are Peter Pan.
Igor: For this costume you will need a very loose lab coat or a long-sleeved white shirt. Place the stuffing in a pillowcase and sew it inside the shirt for the hump. (You could also use Velcro to hold it in place). Wear a pair of frayed pants with holes in the knee areas. For a belt, use a string and tie it in front. A dull old looking t-shirt that is ripped at the collar, sleeve and hem looks great. She carries a jar of brown water (she uses food coloring) with a piece of cauliflower in it for the brain. Shaving your head and walking hunched over … shaving your head is optional.
Jack and the Beanstalk: For this costume, wear all green and wrap the wired silk ivy all over you from head to toe. Using a straw hat, glue some cotton balls onto the hat for a cloud effect. A sprig of ivy should come out of the top of the hat. Make a tunic for a Ken doll and Ken becomes Jack, and you are the beanstalk. He carries a bag of beans with you to distribute.
Octomoma: This is really fun. She wears long dark hair and large, very red lips. Attach eight dolls on yourself and you are good to go.
Indiana Jones: For this costume you will need a brown hat with a brim. Use a whip rope and attach a handle, or use a jump rope, detach one of the handles and spray paint the rope and handle. Wear brown colors, a tan shirt and brown boots. Wear a leather jacket. Use a coarse sponge and brown makeup to create the stiff beard. Add a few lines of dirt around the cheekbones, temples and under the jaw.
A sorcerer: For a sorcerer, use a long black or dark robe with long, drooping sleeves and a dressing gown belt (use a drapery tie clip for the belt). He hangs mystical objects on his belt such as a bag, herbs, crystals and carries a cane.
Mrs. Claus: For this cute dress, glue some cotton balls to a shower cap for the hair. She is wearing a white buttoned shirt, a long white skirt, a red apron, red and white striped stockings and metal-rimmed glasses on the tip of her nose. Add the rosy red cheeks and you are ready.
A hunter: This is really easy. She wears camouflage clothing, a hunter’s vest with many pockets, a camouflage hat, gloves and rubber boots. He carries binoculars, a water bottle and a fake shotgun with you.
A devil: He wears a red leotard and a red turtleneck shirt. She makes pointy ears out of red felt. Make red felt horns with thread inserted or red painted foam and attach them to a headband. Make the felt tail with an arrow shape at the end and insert the thread into the felt. Cover all exposed skin with red body paint. Take a black eyebrow pencil and draw the eyebrows at an acute angle outwards. Color your lips red or black.
Cat thief: This guy is dressed in black. He is wearing black leggings, a black turtleneck, a black cap, black socks and shoes, black eye mask and black gloves. Hang some tools from a belt and wear them around your waist. He carries a sack over his shoulder.
Bell: Trim the hem of a short green dress in a jagged pattern. Put your hair in a bun and do very little makeup (mostly some blush, lip gloss and mascara). She is wearing green ballet flats with pompoms on top. She wears little fairy wings and carries a magic wand and a big smile.
The Easter rabbit: To be the Easter Bunny he wears white sweatpants and a white hooded sweatshirt. Using pink and white yarn and felt, she makes bunny ears and attach them to the hood of the sweatshirt. Cut an oval shape from the pink felt for the rabbit’s chest and attach it to the front of the sweatshirt. She creates a bunny nose and mustache using makeup and wears white gloves. She carries a basket full of colorful plastic eggs with you.
A soldier: Wear military clothing such as: overalls, hat or helmet, black boots, dog tags, utility belt with water bottle and a fake grenade. Camouflage your face and carry a fake gun.
Teen Wolf: Wear a basketball costume and headband. She buys fake fur from a craft store and using spirit gum attach it to any exposed skin. She is wearing rubber nails and high tennis shoes.
A rapper: For this trendy guy you will wear baggy jeans that drop down the hips, a t-shirt and hoodie, a baseball cap tilted to the head, gold chain, large watch, a grid on the teeth (the rubber wrap of rubber). silver will work for the grill) and great tennis.
Black eyes P: This costume is super quick and easy. He is wearing a white shirt and with a black marker draws the letter P on it (make sure it’s a big P). Using black face makeup, give yourself a black eye. You are now a black-eyed P.
Circus clown: Wear a jumpsuit over a brightly colored long sleeve shirt, converse sneakers (the older the better) and a clown wig or color your hair with color spray. Paint your face white and create a clown look that you like. He brings a noise maker with you and sprinkles stupid twine.
School crossing guard: This is quick and easy. You will need to wear dark-colored clothing (trousers and button-down shirt), a whistle at the neck and carry a stop sign.
Rock’n’Roll Star: All you need to be a rock star is a pair of leather pants, leather jacket or vest, spiked dog collar, fake tattoos, long hair wig or spiked hair, and sunglasses. Be sure to bring a toy guitar.
A used car salesman: Smooth your hair back using a lot of hair cream. She is wearing a polyester plaid dress, a button down shirt and several neck chains. Hand out business cards that you have created yourself and tell people that you can get a lot of them.
Marge Simpson: Wear a Marge Simpson wig or make a blue strand wig. She is wearing a green sheath dress with elastic around the top, orange flat shoes and a beaded necklace. She uses makeup to color your skin yellow.
