DIY Halloween Costumes

It’s my favorite month of the year ... October! You know what that means: it’s Halloween! Halloween is by far my favorite holiday because who doesn’t love candy, spooky stories and of course Halloween parties! I decided to put together three easy Halloween costumes to help you get into the spirit of spooky season! All of these costumes are super easy and you can probably find many of the items in your own closet already!

Costume 1:

You can never go wrong with a cat costume! It’s super easy, sassy and cute. For this costume, I decided to wear my favorite ripped black jeans, which I paired with a basic black long sleeve. To top it off, I grabbed black booties from my closet and transformed myself into a sassy kitty, using some black face paint for the whiskers! However, if it’s cold outside, you can add black fingerless gloves and a black teddy coat.

Costume 2:

For my next costume, I decided to dress up as a football player! I personally love football (Go Vikings!) and this outfit is perfect for anyone wanting to rock a sportier look. This costume could not be simpler: just grab any oversized jersey, leggings, sneakers, eye black and you’re ready to go!

Costume 3:

Who doesn't love a good frat boy costume? This is super easy and cute! Start by borrowing a friend’s (or your dad's) oversized button-up shirt, add tall white socks, a pair of slides, and you’re all set! If you want to add a little something extra to this costume, grab a baseball hat or some fun sunglasses!

With these cute and easy costume ideas, there’s no excuse to stay home on Halloween! Make sure to check out your local Plato’s Closet for similar items and much more! Happy Haunting!
