Stylish DIY Halloween Costumes
Ready to look drop dead gorgeous (muahahaha) this Halloween?
Whether you’re on a budget or want to rock a super-unique costume this Halloween, doing it yourself is definitely worth trying (and potentially more rewarding).
Even if you’re a crafting beginner, you can easily pull together a Halloween costume for little to no cost. (No precision is required for gory splashes of blood and no sewing is necessary for gauzy mummy costumes).
Check out these fun, unique and budget-friendly DIY Halloween costume options from ShopAtHome.com:
Devil with a Blue Dress:
This costume idea is, well, super-hot. Pay homage to the song Devil with a Blue Dress, with, you guessed it, a blue dress and some devilish accessories. The song, originally a single released in 1964 by Short Long, later became a Billboard hit when it was recorded by Mitch Ryder and The Detroit Wheels. Go ahead and rock your favorite blue dress, or find a cheap one at a thrift store. Complete the costume with sequined devil accessories available at Walmart. This kit for under $10 comes with a horn headband, bow tie and detachable tail. Sequin Devil Accessory Halloween Accessory Kit, $8.67 (plus Cash Back), Walmart.com
Spelling Bee Champ:
Michael’s craft store has a dozen DIY adult costume ideas. Our favorite? We think the Spelling Bee Champ costume is the bee’s knees. The project is labeled “beginner” and will take about one hour to craft. You can shop for all the supplies you need at Michael’s — including Velcro strips to hold your letters, a yellow T-shirt and plastic headbands to give you some wordy antennas.

Transform into a royal count or countess this Halloween with a DIY vampire costume! Rock an all-black outfit — bonus points for gothic-inspired boots and smudged eye make-up. You can find vampire essentials like glow-in-the dark teeth and gory fake blood to elevate your costume to Dracula status. The Dollar Tree has great costume essentials, but you have to buy in bulk — which makes it perfect if you’re shopping for group or family costumes.
Are you a good witch or bad witch? Either way, become a make-up pro with a costume make-up kit. The Disney Good vs. Evil kits by e.l.f. include everything you need to take on a character, including dramatic eye make-up and eyeliner, brush sets, lip gloss and nail polish. In each kit, you’ll get a combo of dark, moody shades and light, breezy colors. e.l.f. Disney Good vs. Evil Eye Collection Set, $4.99 (plus Cash Back), Walgreens.com
