Hello everyone, let’s make easy DIY costumes! Halloween is coming soon and apart from this, there are always enough reasons to dress up and to come up with a costume idea.
I thought about quickly sharing old costume photos on Instagram, but then decided to rather dedicate a full blogpost to it.
During the past years, I went to so many theme parties or hosted them myself and each time, I did my costume myself. Most of the time, it was a super quick costume without much effort, skills or costs involved. So here we go, have a look at my easy DIY costumes and find inspiration for your next costume party.
Easy DIY Costumes
One of the easiest kind of DIY costumes ever:a superheroine / superhero costume. Just wear a dress, make yourself a mini cape and a mask out of felt. Super easy!
A while ago, I hosted a circus theme party and dressed myself up as ringmistress. As you can see, there is not much needed for this costume.
For this one, you just need a bit of make-up and ruffled clothes, then you can walk around as creepy adult-size doll.
For a maritime party many years ago, I dressed up as sailor lady. I simply pimped a red dress, worked on a few accessories and made this cute maritime outfit.
For a video game theme party some years ago, I dressed up as Luigi. I used clothes in matching colors which I already owned and just ordered hat and gloves online.
Last year for Halloween, I decided on a popcorn lady costume. I embellished box and hat and only used clothes I already owned. The same went for my Cheshire Cat costume a few years ago: you only need clothes in matching colors, some hair chalk and cardboard for the mini mouth mask.
A care bear costume is also super easy. If you own colorful clothes, try to find the colors of your fave care bear and make a cardboard sign for the belly and some ears out of felt.
For my birthday about ten years ago, I dressed up as Wonder Woman. I stitched stars onto the pants and made all the cuffs and stuff myself, cutting out hard felt and wrapping it with golden fabric. Super easy. Another last minute idea a while ago was going out as harlequin, just putting on some sad and creepy make-up and wearing colorful clothes.
One of my friends once celebrated her birthday with a space party. I came up with this silver space outfit. I already owned bag, slippers and skirt, I then sewed the shirt, made the stars for the head with some wired and used dry hair spray for the grey hair. So easy!
