It’s hard to believe that store-packaged Halloween costumes can be so expensive. I mean, $50-$60 is a lot just to spend on a costume you’ll either never wear again or will sit in your closet for several years before being recycled. Making your own DIY Halloween costume will not only ensure that no one will show up with your outfit but will save you a lot of money (not to mention you’ll have some extra cash leftover to spend on alcohol). If you’re on a tight budget for Halloween costumes then consider these.
Okay, so this may not be the most creative DIY Halloween costume but it’s definitely the easiest to do and well, everyone will get a good laugh. If you’re a female considering dressing up as “Snookie.” This is fairly simple; throw on the skankiest dress you have in your closet for your outfit. She’s known for having that ridiculous puff on the top of her head so simply re-create the pompadour style hair. Of course for make-up you’ll want to use heavy black liner. For safe measures, get a spray tan. If you want to be one of the guys from jersey shore then consider getting really buffed up and getting an incredibly noticeable spray tan (use the kind that comes off! Nothing professional). If you can’t get buff enough to pull this look off then consider stuffing yourself to make it look like you’re muscular and of course, the spray tan. Spike your hair and voila! You’re a “guido.” Also, make sure your outfit matches the part. You know the drill.
I’m a huge Dexter fan and if you are too this DIY Halloween costume might be a fun one for you. Go as a victim of Dexter’s! If you’re a female looking for a sexy Halloween DIY costume this would work out fantastically. Wear a nude strapless bra and wrap your breasts with saran wrap. For the bottom you’ll want nude panties (preferably boy shorts but any cut works fine) and wrap with saran wrap. Now, to pull together the “Dexter’s Victim” look you’ll need to have a convincing cut across your right cheek. Use fake blood and replicate his infamous signature. If you don’t want a sexy Halloween costume and are looking for something more conservative then consider wearing normal clothes and of course include the cut on the right cheek. This will work for a male as well.
Apple Itunes Shadow
Apple is name for their black shawody, faceless figures on their itunes commercial. If you’re an Apple fanboy (or gal) consider this Halloween costume. You’ll want to paint yourself black from head to toe and wear a skin tight black t-shirt and pants. You can even print the white apple logo on your shirt if you wish. Tuck your ipod (or at least the cord) into your pants and put the earplugs either into your wears or around your neck. Super easy, right?
