Halloween party costumes can be so easy and inexpensive too.

I LOVE costume parties. Not everyone does. But, getting folks excited about Halloween costume parties is pretty easy. As Halloween approaches, everyone starts to think about "what can I be"?

Even with my love of Halloween, usually I find myself on October 31 looking thru my closet to see what I can put together.

Homemade Halloween Costumes

Here are some memorable homemade Halloween costume ensembles from the past few years that you can pull together easily from items that you probably have in your closet which can also be done at the very last minute!:

  • A cowboy or cowgirl (boots, jeans and cowboy hat)
  • A Toga (learn how to make a toga)
  • A "lady next door" (bathrobe, curlers in the hair, cold cream on the face, and giant red lips)
  • Tacky Tourist (break out your Hawaiian shirt, fanny pack, sun glasses and camera)
  • A Hula Dancer (use leftover party supplies from a Luau party)
  • Puppy Dog (dress in brown, black, etc. and put hair into dog ear pony tails. Darken your nose and you are ready!)
  • Meme (what is the meme going around this week? Topical for sure!)
  • Pajamas (wear your favorite onesie or pajamas and carry a stuffed animal)
  • Princess (doesn't everyone have a tiara in their house somewhere?)
  • Genius Bar Employee (make a up a nametag and bring out your favorite Apple products)
  • Ghost (all you need is an old sheet and a pair of scissors)
  • Color - dress head to toe in your favorite color
  • 80's Rock Star - Old t-shirt, jeans, and tease up your hair
  • Grill Master - jeans or shorts, with an apron, oven mitts, and maybe a grilling tool
  • FBI - dark suit with dark sunglasses
  • 50's Mom - Conservative dress, pearls, plus an apron
  • Zombie - If you have the right colors in your makeup kit, you can wear anything, and just get creative with your makeup
