DIY Halloween Costumes

It’s the end of October; that time of the year when you dress up in whacky costumes and enjoy a spooky night out for Halloween. Costume options, we know, are a bit cliché but fear not, we have a few suggestions that you could put together in a matter of hours. So, go indulge in DIY therapy.

Maleficient:
This is probably the latest and most favourite add up to our favourite celebrity Halloween looks.

What you need?
A leather ensemble, preferably a black long sleeved dress and an extended cape that reaches your knees.

Need to accessorize:
Skyscraper leather boots, a stiff collar and a pair of devil horns, all in pitch black (of course).

Make-up woes:
A pale face with oxy blood lips and dangerously winged eyeliner. The make-up should leave you looking breathtaking.

Local Hippy:
The most comfortable and easiest to put together, considering you can just throw on your clothes!

What you need?
A vintage maxi, can be layered with a crochet jacket if required.

Need to accessorize:
Finish the look with a floral headband that you could make yourself and totally go wild. Feel free to wear a chunk of wooden bracelets and long neck pieces. A fishtail braid and colourful feathers in your hair will make the ensemble look effortlessly fun. Don’t forget to bring your Ray Bans along.

Make-up woes:
We recommend you keep the make-up neutral.

Ms. Gnome:
Bring a sense of nostalgia and a touch of fun to upcoming parties with a Ms. Gnome costume.

Smurf

What you need?
A petticoat, leg warmers and dress to give you an authentic look. Wear the shoes of your choice. 

Need to accessorize:

The hat can be easily made at home. Boot covers let you wear the shoes of your choice.
