This is such a clever and sweet idea that is so simple to make! Use one of your old bralettes or tank tops as the top and cover the front of it with different colored pom-pom’s. Then, get a tight, red, high-waisted skirt, and write “25 cents” with a black sharpie in the front! If you don’t want to write on the skirt, you can write that on a silver piece of fabric or felt! Throw on your favorite pair of heels and you’re done. This is such a creative and simple idea that will be a big hit on Halloween.

This is such a cute Halloween costume if you are looking to be something with a group of friends and stand out amongst the other costumes! All you have to do is get a white tank top or shirt and write which suit and number you would like to be. Wear a cute flowy or tight skirt and throw on some black heels, and you’re done!

Social Media

Let’s be honest here… We all love social media. What better way to express that then through your Halloween costume? Simply take the color of the social media sign and make that your shirt color. For instance, for snapchat you will wear a yellow shirt (clearly) and then cut out a little ghost symbol from felt and hot glue it onto the shirt. Pair the shirt with a cute yellow skirt and white shoes. You can do this for all forms of social media so you and your friends can match!

This is the most creative costume yet! All four seasons can be turned into costumes for you and your friends. For fall, all you need to do is make a crown and satchel of leaves, throw on a black shirt and a cute flowy skirt, and you are set! For summer, think bright! Wear a flower crown, a bright yellow skirt, and a denim top. For winter, channel your inner Elsa from Frozen! Pair a cute white top and a sequin skirt to give off a snowy effect. Lastly, for spring, focus on the beauty in flowers blooming and wear a floral top with a cute skirt!

You can be whoever or whatever you want for Halloween! We hope you try out one of these DIY costumes. If you do, don’t forget to tag us in your Halloween pics on Instagram @glamandgowns or @Faviana_NY and on twitter @FavianaNY!
