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
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
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
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
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!
