DIY Halloween Costume Wins

Halloween costume wins are the norm, right? You put on an outfit, everyone can guess who you are, and you feel like a rock star. Maintain that feeling be repeating one of these great DIY costumes.

  • The Fantasy Football look can be easily achieved by being literal. What do we mean? Dress up like a football player—don’t forget the black cheek stripes so it’s clear! Add an accessory from a fantasy film or show. Voila, you are a walking fantasy football icon.
  • Perhaps one of the easiest ways to dress up for Halloween on your own is to go as a past or present pop star. Just take clothing items from around your house and put them on in different ways. This Jimi Hendrix, for example, is achieved with a simple sport coat over jeans with matching shoes, a hippie pin, and a suit tie around a curly wig. Simple yet effective.
  • You can dress up an old Halloween costume you’ve got lying around, or just dress up an old T-shirt. Either way, you can easily transform yourself into an adult-sized Beanie Baby by taping a large heart-shaped “ty” sign to your shirt. For example, try an old cat costume (or just wear a black outfit with kitty ears) or use a tie-dye shirt (again, with animal ears). Yes, it’s 90s throwback, but that’s what makes the costume a win!

DIY Halloween Costume Fails

Where there are wins, there are also fails. Although fails are hilarious to flip through, you don’t particularly want to be the person everyone is pointing and laughing at. You certainly don’t want to go viral. So take a look at these and, well, don’t do them.

  • So you want to jazz up the traditional white sheet ghost, sure. Just keep in mind that pressing all that white cloth against your body is going to look strange, no matter what you do. Hence, don’t try the “ghosts in bikinis” look.
  • We get that as a parent, you want to use your baby’s cuteness as long as possible. But consider that what looks good on professional photography sites does so because they have been captured by professionals. These screaming pumpkin babies are proof that what looks promising isn’t always a good idea.
  • If you’re going for the superhero look, maybe find a costume that doesn’t require a lot of molding. In other words, probably stay away from aluminum foil when it comes to costumes, even if you’re going for Silver Surfer.
