The Best DIY Halloween Costumes

Time is running out! You better get your act together and figure out what you’re going to be for Halloween this year. Sure you can run to Party City and be a “slutty [insert profession here]” or you can be creative and make something (don’t worry, it can still be slutty). Below are some DIY costumes from friends of mine. Hopefully we spark some inspiration! Also, check out last year’s blog here for some of my oldies but goodies!

The Hunger Games Themed Bat Mitzvah

Hi Dawn. Let’s be best friends! While I don’t know you, I did stalk your bat-mitzvah photos on the Internet and I fell in love. While searching for fun things to pin, I stumbled across cool bat mitzvah themed parties. Back in the day, I had a candy themed party and it was AWESOME. However, if I could do it all over again, I may have copied Dawn’s idea.

Dawn (this girl from the Internet I never met) had a Hunger Games themed party complete with a firey DJ booth, care packages falling from sky with bread and spiles, and girl on fire center pieces. Some pics are below but to see the full story click here.

Take Time To: Get Yourself A Halloween Costume

AHHH!!! Halloween is around the corner and you don’t have anything to wear! Sure, you could always grab a belt and be Quailman but I’m sorry boys… it’s been done! And ladies, you don’t want to be that girl who just slapped on a pair of bunny ears to your slutty black outfit, do you? Now’s the time to think of something cute and witty (and low budget) to be this year. And IMHO, don’t get a costume from Party City because I guarantee you will bump into 12 other police officers and race car drivers while you are out. You don’t want to be wearing the same costume as someone else! I have not yet decided on what I will be but here are some cute costumes I found that seem to be pretty low budget and some of my past costumes too!
