We’re still in a recession, people. This Halloween, costumes certainly don’t need to be purchased from those expensive pop-up stores. Besides, the most creative and innovative Halloween get-ups aren’t those that come from a box but rather from the imagination. And for everyone who’s not so skilled in thinking up their own DIYs, here are a few ideas …
- Want fairy wings? It’s as simple as mixing old tights and clothes hangers. Just reform the hangers into the desired wing shape and cover with old tights. Finally, there’s a use for those ruined stockings with one small hole. Decorate with as much glitter as you wish.
- Pretending to be everyone’s favorite crazy pop singer, Lady Gaga? Remake the Poker Face with foam and paper. Attach mirror decal to cardboard, cut out tiny squares, attach to a simple mask with a hot glue gun, and just dance.
- Or what about The King of Pop? Is it too soon? Shorten your pants hem, add a silver glove, and learn some iconic dance moves. Or if you want to go really all-out, sew silver fabric down the side of your pants.
