Is it just us or has October flown by? Halloween’s now a week away and we’re running out of time to put together a costume. Instead of wasting money at your very expensive local Halloween store, try out these five DIY Halloween costumes. Plus, there’s barely any crafting required!
1. Unicorn Frappuccino
It’s the social media sensation that everyone hated (and loved) this year. Whatever you thought of the Unicorn Frappuccino from Starbucks, we can all agree it was a genius marketing plan. Recreate the drink in human form with a colorful outfit—think of lots of pinks, purples, and blues. Don’t forget your unicorn horn! Going to more than one Halloween party? These bright clothes make a great 80s costume too.
2. “Super” Fan
If you’re a sports fan (or own a lot of things covered in your city’s favorite team), assemble these items together for one super outfit. All you have to do is wear your favorite’s teams sports colors as a super fan. Go crazy with it from socks and sandals to a superhero cape. It would be even better if your team was the best of the rest… let’s not talk about the Cubs and Yankees missing out on the World Series.
3. Kid Interrupts BBC Interview
One of the best moments of TV occurred on BBC News earlier this year when two kids decided to interrupt their daddy’s important interview. The daughter enters the room with such swag and confidence. We all wish we can enter a party like that! Luckily, most of this costume includes items you probably own. The look isn’t complete without those baller pink frames.
4. Kim Possible
What’s the sitch? You’re not a real ’00s kid until you can sing the Kim Possible theme song at any given moment of time. Get ready to give your friends some serious nostalgia by dressing up as the crime-fighting teen. These neutral-colored items can easily be found at a thrift store or in your closet. To make the costume even better, find a friend to dress up as Ron Stoppable (or better yet, Rufus, the naked mole rat)!
5. Rosie the Riveter
This timeless costume should be worn by at least one person every Halloween. Not only is it an easy costume to put together (hellooo denim), but Rosie’s still a cultural icon for women around the world. Besides, some strangers seriously might need a history lesson if they have no idea who you are.
