Are you considering that you might make your own Halloween costume this year? Well, you don’t need to buy a costume for Halloween when you can easily make one yourself without spending too much time and money.

Who wants to spend over $50 on a costume in a Halloween store when you can make it your self. It’s always smart to look online before purchasing a costume in the stores to help you think of ideas to make your costume yourself.

Here are some fun ideas on how to make your own.

Always be creative. Think outside the box. Look around in your closet and see what articles of clothing you have that you can make into a costume.

Ask your friends and family about their old costumes that you can recreate into your own from their past Halloween celebrations.

Go to your local goodwill store and purchase cheap but cute clothes to mix and match to create a costume.

Look around the house for some kitchen supplies and art supplies for inspiration. You can also get creative by wearing crazy make-up to spice up your costume.

Think about your favorite sports athletes or celebrities and try to recreate them. You can wear an old jersey or get all dressed up and be your favorite celebrity.

Have fun creating your costume. The process of finding a costume doesn’t have to be stressful. Let your ideas run wild and enjoy your Halloween.


  1. Be creative
  2. Swap costumes
  3. Go to your local goodwill store
  4. Use kitchen/art supplies
  5. Be your favorite role model
