SUPER SIMPLE DIY COSTUMES

Here are a few SIMPLE & CHEAP Halloween costumes I’ve put together over the years. These ideas are perfect for when you need a last minute costume or want something more wearable and less costume-y. They only require 1. clothes you probably already own (or can be easily purchased) and 2. a few materials from your local craft store.

That being said, these are kind of supposed to have that DIY feel so don’t expect any super professional, comic-con looking creations. Haha

  1. POWER RANGERSimg_0793

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:

  • Leggings and long sleeve shirts in blue, red, green, pink, black and yellow. Forever 21, H&M, and ASOS all have a great selection of basics.
  • White felt which we sewed to our shirts to create the diamond design
  • Cardboard and yellow fabric for Green Ranger’s armor

2. SISTER ACT

WHAT YOU’LL NEED: 

  • Black basics: I used a pair of pleather shorts and a mesh batwing blouse that I already owned.
  • White collars: I just cut the collars off of two old button ups to fasten around our necks
  • Black pleather fabric and white fabric: to make the nun habits!

3. MATADOR AND (CHICAGO) BULL

WHAT YOU’LL NEED: 

  • MATADOR: Red Silk jacket, white peasant top, and red corset (all purchased separately) I also added some gold trim to the jacket.
  • (CHICAGO) BULL: Bull’s jersey and horns

4. MEDIEVAL KNIGHTS

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:

  • Gray basics to wear underneath. I chose a stretchy t-shirt dress
  • White fabric to make the “vests”
  • Red Felt (or color/fabric of your choice) for the crest
  • Silver fabric to mimic the chainmail armor

5. YOUR CONSCIENCE

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:

  • Red basics and white basics. I bought both the skirt and body suit (which Josh accidentally spilled a drink on.. GRRR) from ASOS. Josh bought his leggings from Forever 21 and cut up an old white T.
  • Devil horns, halo and angel wings: all purchased on amazon

6. CLUELESS PE CLASS

All of our clothes/accessories came from our own closets! But these items can also be easily purchased at Forever 21, H&M, AA, ASOS etc.
