DIY Halloween Costumes

Halloween is right around the corner, and if you're like me and don't have a costume yet, then this post might help you out.

Instead of buying a typical costume from a Halloween shop, try making your own. It's a guarantee that no one else will have it. Here are some of my favorite DIY costumes that I've come across.

This is probably my favorite! Can work as a birthday present or any other type of gift bag.

Turn yourself into pop art.

Rosie the Riveter 

I've NEVER seen this one done before - Jellyfish!

LikeWowLala on YouTube has a pretty good DIY Miley costume video. 

Couple/Group Costumes:

Bunch of Grapes - wear solid color top and stick bunches of balloons on.

Let me know in the comments what you'll be dressing up as for Halloween.

  3. Great pics, I like the Victoria Secrets one the most, xoxo.

  4. These options are so awesome! I especially love the Victoria's Secret bag. Did you end up being any of these for Halloween!

    Just wanted to let you know that I found your blog on the Her Campus network, and I was just newly accepted into it, and I wanted to reach out to you because I'm a fellow Louisiana resident! Though I live in North Louisiana, which is so completely different from South LA. I followed along on GFC (do you have a Bloglovin too?), and would love it if you checked out my blog as well:

  5. These are too cute, wish I woulda seen them before last weekend! I'm new to HerCampus and love finding fellow college bloggers (Sometimes feel like I'm the only one!)

  6. I am totally stealing the Bunch of Grapes costume next time I'm dragged to a costume party!!

  7. Wow!! Jellyfish is looking so beautiful, even I have never seen such costume before. Now I am also planning to make such a nice costume for my daughter for this Halloween party at Los Angeles event venues. Loved the idea of sticking balloons to top is also fantastic. Thanks for sharing such ideas.
