Halloween only happens once a year, but students don’t have to break the bank on a costume. Be creative and “Do It Yourself” (DIY)! In case students can’t think of any, here is a list of easy and inexpensive costume ideas.
Rosie the Riveter- What is needed: Get a blue button-up shirt and roll the sleeves up to the elbow. Pin back hair with a bandanna, and create a big 1950s pin curl in front. Complete the look with winged eyeliner and red lipstick.
Audrey Hepburn- What is needed: Wear a black dress with long black gloves and layer multiple pearl necklaces. Put hair into a sleek up-do, and accessorize with a tiara, big framed sunglasses, and a cigarette holder.
Formal Apology- What is needed: Wear a suit or nice dress and hang a sign around the neck that says “Formal Apology”.
Where’s Waldo- What is needed: Wear a red and white striped shirt with blue bottoms, a red beanie, and glasses.
Escaped Prisoner- What is needed: Wear a black and white striped shirt with black pants and look suspicious all night. Or wear an orange jumpsuit to create the look as well.
Fierce Feline- What is needed: Use black eyeliner to create an over exaggerated and dramatic cat eye by extending the line onto the nose. Color in the lower portion of the nose, and draw whiskers. Add black lipstick and ears to complete the look.
Ninja- What is needed: Dress in all black with a bandana covering the mouth, and be stealthy.
Costume error- What is needed: Write “Error 404 – Costume Not Found” on a t-shirt, preferably white.
