Halloween costumes aren’t as much fun for grownups as they are for kids. That’s just a fact for most adults, we’re sorry to say. Maybe it’s the pressure to be super clever, or daringly topical, or naughtily sexy (why are so many Halloween costumes for adults so, um, “adult” anyway?) But let’s not let go of that fun side of Halloween costumes that most of us had as kids. Here are some cleverly artistic DIY Halloween costumes that you can create without breaking the bank!
Remember Carmen Sandiego? Wondered lately just where in the world Carmen Sandiego is? Right here. Just grab a jacket, hat, globe, and Carmen has been found.
Here’s a very easy, fun his-and-hers costume. It’s a classic pair–Mary Poppins and Bert–but not an overly obvious one.
Now that we’ve found Carmen, that reminds us, where’s Waldo? This costume is as funny as it is easy. If you’ve got a (well-behaved) dog, you can even have her join in.
This final one is fun to create, especially if you grab a bunch of friends and a bottle of vine (sorry, that one just had to be included). Inflate a few dozen balloons and wear a coordinating shirt and you’re good to go. It’s pretty grape.
We hope that’s inspired your Halloween, whether it’s a big party or answering the door for the little trick-or-treaters.
Check back, because we’ve got some carved pumpkins up next that you just have to see to believe.
