Do It Yourself Halloween Costumes That Work

I love putting together do it yourself Halloween costumes! I don’t want to show up at a party wearing the same Halloween costume as someone else. And, while I love DIY Halloween costumes, I’m not overly crafty. I have been looking for some simple Halloween costume ideas when I came across these videos.

Deer costume

A faux fur vest with a neutral colored outfit make the best staples. To complete the look, add an antler headband created from foliage in your backyard or with artificial flowers.

A chambray shirt and jeans are all you need! To finish the look, just add a red bandana in your hair and top it off with some powerful red lips.

Sushi costume

An all-white outfit is the foundation for your “rice.” Tie a pink/orange ‘sashimi’ pillow with a simple black scarf around your waist. Add some green and pink flowers to your hair as “ginger” and “wasabi” and voila!
