Now I can’t be the only one who doesn’t want to spend money on an outfit that I will wear only one day out of the whole year. Of course, there are the stereotypical costumes—pirate, athlete, nerd, cowboy/cowgirl, etc. But you can do better than that. So what are some creative costumes that you would be able to put together with things you already have lying around the house?
All you need are some sandals, cargo/khaki shorts, a fanny pack, and a hat. Walk around taking pictures on your phone or camera, and your look is complete!
Just wear all black and then put any stuffed animal cats you own into a backpack. Haha, get it?
This one is fairly self-explanatory. A nice bonus is that you can actually EAT the candy before you tape it on your clothes.
Since I doubt you will actually be able to take a real knife to your ward Halloween party, I would recommend taking a fake or making one out of cardboard.
No longer do our vampires have the high-collared capes with the long, slicked-back hair in a ponytail. All you need to be a modern vampire is a smoldering look and a leather jacket.
This one is pretty funny. Just wear some gold jewelry & borrow a shovel (or again, make one out of cardboard).
This is a super easy way to be comfortable the entire night—wear your pajamas and walk around with a box of Kleenex.
Wear camouflage. If you have a beard you get bonus points.
Use a tiny bit of gel…who am I kidding, use a LOT of gel to get that slicked back hair, then add a white t-shirt & cuffed jeans. If you have one, add a leather jacket.
Some people are pretty hardcore with this costume, but I would just wear a blue shirt and walk around eating cookies. Is there a downside to this costume? Absolutely not.
Just pin some socks all over your body along with a dryer sheet or two. Also, it’d be a pain to brush out afterward, but teasing your hair might add a nice touch.
Boo from Monsters, Inc.
Pink shirt with purple leggings. Easy peasy.
Eleven from Stranger Things
All you need for this look is a pink dress & some waffles. Let’s be honest, why WOULDN’T you want to go buy some waffles?
Just throw on a red plaid shirt & carry around the paper towels. If anyone spills anything at the ward party, you’ll be more than ready to assist.
Men in Black
Suit & sunglasses. Boom. You now have a costume.
