I love a good themed costume….whether it’s a group or couple! A lot of these you could do with your BFF and some of them can be bigger group costumes! Hopefully this gets some of your creative juices flowing for Halloween in a few weeks if you haven’t decided what you’re going to be yet!
Secret to Creating good DIY Costumes (No Sew)
A few of the costumes listed can feel “generic” but you can definitely put your own spin on it by creating the costume yourself and not buying it from the store! Forever 21 and Amazon are my gold mines for creating DIY costumes, then I construct the rest with ribbon, construction paper, gems, etc and some hot glue. All of the accessories are usually homemade, unless it’s something like gloves or cat ears. The crown above in the Princess Peach costume is a quick DIY one with 1 sheet of gold scrapbook paper, gemstones, and a hot glue gun.
Example from one of the costumes below – be the Golden Snitch in Quidditch (and your man be Harry Potter) I would search for “gold dress” on Google, Amazon, and Forever 21 to see if I could find something for $20ish. I then simply add some wings and boom! EASY and CHEAP costume. When I was Cosmo from Fairy Odd Parents, I searched “green metallic dress” and found a tight fitting tube dress. I constructed the crowns from scrapbook paper paper again – same with the wand! I also used a ruler and painted it black for the stem, but something even cheaper like a straw could work.
