The White Rabbit
If you have a white dress and red coat at home, you’re halfway ready! All you need to add is a pair of rabbit ears, a blue bowtie, and a clock purse (a pocket watch would be pretty cool too!). This costume can work for both adults and kids - a classic such as Alice In Wonderland always has great costume ideas you can improvise at home!
Such a classic movie and a great costume idea! Danny Zuko from Grease is so easy to make, you only need to dress up with black pants, a plain white T-shirt and a black leather jacket. Oh, and don’t forget to add a whole bottle of gel to that hair!
This family got creative! It’s a DIY funny halloween costume that’s pretty easy to put together too. You just need to prepare the milk box with cardboard, paint and tape, and then cut some other cardboard boxes and paint chocolate chips on them. Then everyone dresses up with brown clothes and you’re all set!
This lovely costume is so simple to make and perfect for a family gathering on Halloween! Such an easy dress up idea for adults that you can easily DIY at home.
You’ll only need:
- A pink dress
- ½ yard of green tulle
- 1 piece of back felt paper
- Double sided tape
Model and cut the seed out from the felt paper making five total. Then tape them to the dress. After that, all you need is to cut the tule into stipes and tie them on a headband. You’re done!
Bonus: You can find a piece of yellow fabric and dress up your dog as pineapple so you’re both matching costumes! Isn’t it so cute?
What a Rainy Day
This is an awesome costume to wear on a girls’ night out on Halloween, it’ll give the girls give a good laugh! Print and cut faces from men, use string to hang them on an umbrella and dress up for a rainy day, easy peasy! Bonus points if you start singing It’s Raining Men by The Weather Girls at some point.
Have you ever looked for DIY halloween costumes for couples? This is certainly a pretty famous one, but that’s because it looks so good! You can learn how to make this, or even improvise with what you already have at home - if you do it right, everyone will recognize it!
