The last thing that Halloween has to be is expensive. Halloween allows you to bring out your creative side in order to show off a beautiful costume for that year. If you want to save even more money, you may consider a do it yourself costume rather than spending money on a costume at a store. Here are the top five diy Halloween costumes to make in 2014.
Little Mermaid Magic
Disney costumes will never go out of style. Dressing like a Disney princess will always be all the rage for children and adults alike. Though many princess costumes will require at least buying the right accessories, a little mermaid costume requires the colors, purple, green, and blue, along with a little fashion sense and imagination.
For a Little Mermaid costume, you can purchase a bandeau top and attach tulle fabric to the bottom. Create several layers of skirt with the tulle fabric to make the skirt puffy and make your princess feel beautiful.
Become a Kitty
Cat costume are one of the simplest that you can make. These costumes require a black outfit along with ears and a tail. Ears can be created with black cardboard attached to a headband and the tail can be easily sewn with a hand stitch. The black outfit can come from your closet and be anything from a skirt and shirt set, to leggings and a leotard.
Any and All Super Heroes
Though super heroes employ a lot of magic and mayhem, becoming a super hero, or a super villain can be easy. Cut your facial costume from extra fabric that you may have, and dress up in your favorite cape and pants. Be sure to wear a shirt that features the sign of your favorite super hero or super villain.
If you would be your regular, run of the mill major bank robber, cut your own mask with eye holes from black cloth, and dress in all black of your sneakiest outfit.
Become a Paper Doll
Paper dolls were something that we all enjoyed in school. Attach your own paper doll with a diy Halloween costume for at home. Find a beautiful smock or apron and cut out the shape with a large piece of cardboard. Attach the smock to the cardboard so that it is as stiff as necessary for the paper doll look.
Send in the Clown
A clown diy costume is simple. Dress up in a silly, colorful outfit and that makes the body of the costume. The dress up part is all makeup. Apply makeup to look like the happy, sad, or scary clown that you prefer. As a clown head, you can use old (and cheap!) pomp oms instead of clown hair!
