It’s the season of colorful crunchy leaves underfoot, tart apple cider, cozy sweaters, and of course, the great Halloween debate: what can I dress up as that won’t break the bank Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to be creative (and original) when it comes to costumes, and all of them can be easily put together yourself.
1. Marionette Doll
All you need for this one is a steady hand with a makeup brush, and an old dress or suit and tie. Not good free handing makeup? Check out a YouTube tutorial. For more inspiration, see the newest scary movie Annabelle.
There are plenty of templates for that neon little diamond shape above a Sim’s head. The rest of the costume is just your normal clothes!
3. Bunch of Grapes
Pick a color, any color! Blow up a bunch of purple, green, or red balloons and then pin them to your clothes (which should be the same color as whatever color balloons you choose).
Find an old cardboard box and spray paint it the color Lego you want to be. When it’s dry, cut out the holes for your arms and head. Grab six plastic cups and paint them if necessary, give them a trim, and then glue them to the box.
5. Risky Business
Easiest costume ever, right? All you need for this classic is an oversized white dress shirt, white socks, and a pair of sunglasses! Classy and comfortable!
Still stuck on ideas? Check out your local thrift store as sometimes they have costumes put together in the window displays. Whatever your choice, it doesn’t have to be expensive!
