DIY Halloween Costumes

Halloween is my favourite holiday. Christmas presents or sweet love notes on Valentine’s Day can’t compare with dressing up as your alter ego on Halloween. For the past few years, I’ve gone all out during the holiday, and often have a couple outfits lined up. Here are some of my favourite looks from the past couple years, and links to a few DIY Halloween Costumes for last minute inspiration!

sally nightmare before christmas halloween costume

Last year, for my second costume I was Sandy from the Nightmare Before Christmas. This costume was super last minute and really easy! My dress is from Hot Topic, and you can pick up an inexpensive red wig or spray your hair for the night. Blue makeup and eyeliner as stitches is the finishing touch to this costume!

Pirates of the Caribbean halloween costume

One of my all-time favourite costumes was when my boyfriend and I dressed up as Will and Elizabeth Turner from Pirates of the Caribbean.

I also really love this DIY Greek Goddess costume. I really like the metallic fig leaf headband, and a great pair of gladiator sandals would finish off the look!
