D-I-Y Halloween Outfits

D-I-Y Halloween Outfits

by Caroline Brock

October is coming up and everyone’s favorite holiday is close at hand. The one day out of the year where eating excess candy and running around in a costume is socially acceptable. The only difficult question  on everyone’s mind is what are you going to wear? Picking the perfect Halloween costume can be more difficult than deciding on what to watch on Netflix. You don’t have to break the bank in order to pull off a terrific costume. We’re taking classic Halloween looks and giving you tips and tricks that won’t break the bank, and refresh your costume that will have everyone talking.

Here are some tips and tricks about creating the perfect vampire outfit.

  1. For a vampire  focus more on your makeup. Youtube has great videos to help you create the perfect look for Halloween. For clothes a simple button down and some slacks for guys, and a nice black or red dress for girls.
  2. You can’t be a vampire without some sharp canine teeth. Your local Halloween shop should have plenty to go around.
  3. Last but not least, finish it off with edible fake blood to really elevate your look.


  • Nestle’s Chocolate Syrup
  • Corn Syrup
  • Red Liquid Food Coloring


Pour about a cup of corn syrup into a jar then mix in chocolate syrup and food coloring until the mixture is a deep red.


Being a witch or a vampire can make Halloween a classic success, but mummies know how to get down and party!

What You’ll Need:

  • White or gray clothing for the basis of your costume.
  • White gauze instead of toilet paper. (For a more aged look you’ll also need black acrylic paint)
  1. Put on tan colored pants and a shirt then have your buddy start wrapping you up in gauze, which you can buy in the medical section at Walmart. (For a more distressed look water down black acrylic paint. Soak the gauze in the paint. Gently wring it out and hang to dry.)
  2. To really pull this look off. Decorate with some Egyptian styled accessories, like a pharaoh hat, necklace, or an Egyptian staff for a little twist in this classic look.



Calling all witches! Don’t be afraid to unveil your true form with these ideas.

  1. The first place you should always look to find a great witch dress is your closet. Every girl should have a black dress just waiting for you to transform it into the perfect costume.
  2. For a witch it’s all about the stockings and hat!  Try some crazy socks for a twist. There are plenty of tutorials on how to DIY your own fun socks and your own witch hat. Just Pinterest it! If you’re not the DIY type you can always buy them at your local Halloween store or raid Walmart.
  3. A witch never walks around town without a sweet ride. All you have to do is go on a little hike. Find a large sturdy stick and fill another bucket with smaller sticks. Wrap the smaller sticks around the larger one and tie with twine or rope. You’ll be flying in style in no time!
