DIY Halloween Costumes

DIY Halloween Costumes For Women

I’ve never been a fan of store-bought, overpriced, bad quality Halloween costumes. They’re usually too tight, cheaply made, and everyone and their brother have the same ones. For those reasons, I prefer DIY Halloween costumes. I used my Amazon affiliate links to put some classic costume looks together in case you’re a do-it-yourself girl too. Most pieces outside of the shoes are around $10-$20 or less, so we are keeping it budget friendly too. I’ve also added everything to the Halloween section of my Amazon Influencer account but I think it’s much more organized in the form of this blog post. Check it out, friends!

Wednesday Addams Costume

Dress     |     Boots     |     Fishnets     |     Skull     |     Wig 

The Addams family is such a well-known movie, you can’t go wrong with a Wednesday Addams costume. Bonus points if you’ve already got dark hair so you don’t need a wig! In that case, just grab a contrast collar dress, some fishnets, combat boots, some kind of spooky prop like this bloody skull or a fake poison bottle, throw in some braided pigtails and you’re good to go!

Dorothy Wizard of Oz Costume

Dress     |     White Tee     |     Sparkle Sneakers     |     Toto Basket     |     Tall Socks

This look is my casual version of Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz. Grab a blue and white gingham dress and a white cropped tee for underneath, a pair of red sparkly sneakers, some long white socks, and a Toto in a basket prop and your costume is complete. I swapped out the sneakers for the ruby slippers because I really didn’t see any online that I would personally wear, they all looked kind of cheap. I figured the sneakers would still have the red sparkly effect but are cute and much more comfy than a pair of heels.

Greek Goddess Costume

Sheet     |     Cuff     |     Belt     |     Headband     |     Gladiator Sandals

I can’t leave out a Greek Goddess costume because it’s probably the cheapest costume you could make, depending on what you already have on hand. The basics of the costume are simply a twin top sheet and some kind of gold ribbon or belt. I created my look above at Walmart for about $10! This is the tutorial I used for how to tye this style of toga. From there, you can add any kind of fun gold accessories you like, a pair of gladiator sandals and you’re done!

Sandy from Grease Costume

OTS Top     |     Pants     |     Waist Belt     |     Red Shoes     |     Red Lipstick

This is a great costume for blonde ladies, and again, you might already have some of these pieces in your wardrobe, I know I do! To get the Sandy from Grease look, pair a black off-the-shoulder top with black pants, a waist belt, red heels, and some red lips. Grab that curling iron and tease your hair up a bit, and BOOM, good to go. If you live in a cooler part of the country throw a leather jacket on top!

Do you create DIY Halloween costumes too? What are you going as this year? Tell me in the comments section!

Until next time,
