Halloween Party Day 3: Homemade Costumes {GIVEAWAY CLOSED}

What’s Halloween without costumes right!!!  I mean it’s the one time of the year I can dress up as anything or anyone I want and not feel like a dummy or get the stares of what the heck is she doing.  This year I will be donning everything 80’s.  Now this I would love to be able to do everyday but society hasn’t caught up with my coolness yet so halloween it must be.  For my 80’s costume it’s simple to make:

  • Grab the leggings I already own and insert one foot after another pull up and position as needed
  • Put on the neon purple foo foo skirt that is sure to blind anyone who passes.
  • Grab an old shirt and cut out the neck and make the bottom fringy
  • Grab your converse and you are ready to go…oh wait mustn’t forget the side ponytail.

That’s my costume and if you want to see a similar version of it (minus the skirt and ponytail, my hair was short) check out my performance of I Love Rock N Roll.  Yep I rock some 80’s look and I am proud of it.

Okay so maybe that’s not your halloween style and I am sure your kids look at you clueless if you mention dressing up like the 80’s.  So for that reason here are a few other make yourself costume ideas.  A No Sew Dracula that is sure not to be to draining and a No Sew Princess that will have royalty calling.  Simple, fun for kids to help and adorable costumes.  Making your own is definitely a little more budget friendly than the moolah spent in the Halloween stores.

    I made the first few costumes for both of my kids. The first costume I ever made was a ladybug for my daughter. I used a black sweatsuit top & bottom and made a headband for the antennae. The next year I made her a dalmation puppy out of footed pj’s. They were white and I used a black permanent marker to make the dots.
    A couple of years ago I made my son a fried egg costume. It was a huge hit with all the neighbors.

    One year my daughter wanted to be a California Raisin. So I got a trash bag, cut a head arms and leg holes into it, put it over her, stuffed it with newspaper to give it that wrinkled raisin look, secured it around her legs with tape, added tights and purple face paint. It was adorable, but not long into trick or treating, we had to go home, she was sweating buckets because of the trash bag and very uncomfortable. She never lets me forget the year mommy made her “miss most of Halloween” LOL

    My favorite was when we dressed my son up as a mad scientist!

    I loved the zebra costume I burned my fingers making for my youngest daughter.

  83. 83

    I dont think I have ever really bought a store bought costume for myself or my kids! We always came up with something on our own. My son has been an old man in pajamas slippers and old glasses, a nerd, a fireman. My brother was a frito bandito years ago in the late 60’s early 70’s!

    My Little Bo Peep costume

    I haven’t made any but my mom made me an Easter Bunny costume.

  86. 86

    All of my costumes were homemade. My mom didn’t believe in spending money on stuff like that. I was a hobo (my favorite), a lady-of-the-evening, a gypsy, a pirate, and a skunk.

  87. 87

    as kids, we had no money to buy store made costumes.
    we put together hobo outfits and one year we wrapped toilet paper all over us so we could be mummies.
    that was pretty good until it rained.

  88. 88

    I always like the idea of a hobo bum costume. Its easy to do and you can always tweak it how you want

    I love Halloween, my house is decorated with haunting sounds and all and my son usually dresses up and plays the part to hand out candy. One year he dressed as a scarecrow sitting on the porch and when the kids walk up to me for candy and he stood up, it was outrageous.

    One time I dressed as a dead cheerleader. I improvised with using various pieces of clothing. What a funny time I had with that. I had a hard time keeping a straight face when I looked in the mirror. lol.

  105. 105

    One year, I went as a tube of toothpaste! My mother made the tube out of muslin and painted it and a hat/cap.

  106. 106

    some of the most creative costumes I’ve seen are from using one’s imagination with second hand store clothes, some makeup and jewellry, and a lot of creativity!

    One in particular was a cowboy costume, which is easy to do homemade, or of course a clown!

    One of the simplest that I did when my oldest two were young, was have them dress up as the prom king and queen. I bought some ribbon that I stitched together and wrote on with glitter glue and got a simple crown for my daughter. THen I dressed them up in dressy clothes. They were so cute and it was a super simple costume.

  119. 119

    I handmake tutu’s and hairbows… so my little lovebug will be a princess this year 😉

    My favorite home made costume was the year I went to work as a cowgirl, complete with saddle! Everyone thought it was a great costume. I just chuckled… that’s what I looked like when ever I wasn’t at work!

    favorite homemade costume was some football shoulder pads, old plaid shirt, mask and aluminum foil machete.

  125. 125

    I had to think up something at the last minute last year, so I put on ripped up clothes and pinned a stuffed kitty to the back of my shirt and went as “something the cat dragged in”

  134. 134

    My favorite memories were when the boys were young. We used to all get dressed up (even me) and we had so much fun

  135. 135

    I dressed my daughter as a witch and her little sister as a broom one year

  136. 136

    Funds were really tight, so I took a black trash bag put it on my daughter and filled it with crumbled newspaper to make her look like a california raisin.

    My girls originally wanted to be My Little Ponies for Halloween. So I was going to cut out some felt ears, glue them to a headband, and add some colorful yarn. I was also going to cut out felt shapes like you find on the side of a My Little Pony and attach them to the pants of the outfit.

    Well that was my idea, but my girls, in just a few weeks, have already changed their minds again! lol I can’t keep up with them!

    My two favorite homemade costumes were for Beetlejuice and Ragged Annie. The hardest part of Annie was making the red yarn wig. Beetlejuice was made with a combination of my own clothes and a very cheap black and white striped blazer I had found at a thrift store. Lots of fun putting them together.

  178. 178

    This year my 12-year-old son decided he wanted to be a “Special Ops Tomato.” After giving him a very confused look, he explained that he wanted to be a tomato from the Army. Again, confused. We ended up getting a large red sweatshirt, stuffing it with plastic bags to make it round (after he had put the sweatshirt on), and painting his face in camo colors. We found a pair of dog tags and let him carry every fake weapon he scrounge up from his room. Voila! Special Ops Tomato. He kept saying “but it’s original!” Um…yeah honey. You’re one of a kind.

    I’ve never attempted to make a costume for my girls. We will be doing part of my oldest daughter’s this year though. She wants to be a zombie softball player. She’s going to wear her softball uniform and I guess we will be painting her face. I will have to see how it goes. lol Thank you!

    The cutest costume that we have ever made was a dalmatian out fit for my daughter.
    We had a white velour two piece set with black polka dots, made a tail, painted whiskers and a nose and made puppy ears out of her long hair.
    She was adorable.

    My favorite homemade costume was when I went as a bunch of grapes. My mom bought a purple sweatshirt and black sweatpants and she stapled little purple ballons all over the shirt and then she made a green felt hat to look like a stem.

    One year I went my friends and I all dressed up as the fruit of looms character. I was the grapes and wore purple leggings and taped blown up puple ballons to a body suit. It was hard to fit through tight spaces but it was a really great costume.

    I made this awesome mummy out of toilet paper. But of course disaster struck half way through the night and it started to rain. We went home and I put her in a rain slicker and we went right back out there. Couldn’t miss out on all that candy.

    My daughter went as Smartie Pants. I hot glued Smarties to a pair of old pants. Then I took an old t-shirt and wrote Smartie Pants on it with pastel fabric pants. We tied a few in her hair, too. It was a huge hit.

    We also did a deviled egg costume which was white pants with a devil’s tail sewed to the back, white shirt with a large yellow circle on the front, and devil horns. I wrote DEVIL EGG in black on the yellow circle.

    My favorite home made costume–One year my Mom decided to make us costumes, she made my sister a cat costume out of black velvet–it was amazing, but it took 10 times longer then she expected so she ran out of time a didn’t make my costume. So she took a bunch of full skirts from my teenage sister and her lovely puffy white blouse, and made me a gypsy she put a scarf on my hair and I got to wear a ton of costume jewelery –I loved it –I felt like a princess–I never got to wear jewelery. The following year she told me she would make my costume first, and I could be anything I wanted –I chose to be an ostrich—not an easy costume to make—I looked more like big bird than I did an ostrich–but that year we went to a ton of Halloween events –and I won prizes at every one!!

    Oh, I’m not crafty at all….so I don’t even try to make costumes, but my mom was very talented with her sewing machine and I remember one year when my brother and I were young she made an angel costume for me and a devil costume for my brother. They were intricate and brilliant and we were just the cutest things ever!

    My favorite homemade costume was when I made a fall tree. I made branches off of a brown costume and had leaves all over. It was pretty interesting. Last year, also, my husband was a handmade slab of bacon. He’s a bacon freak.

    We used to dress up like hobos when I was a child. Using my Dad’s old clothes. When my daughter was born, her first costume was a kitten with a black sweatsuit and tobogon with little triangle ears crocheted on it.

    My favorite for my daughter was I took a formal gown that was lace over taffeta that my niece owned, and I cut off the bottom, removed the taffeta that was on the piece I cute off and make a shawl out of the lace I cut off. Then we topped it with a crown and wand she already owned and made her a fairy princess. Very cute and didn’t cost me anything. Thanks.
