It’s that time of year again: HALLOWEEN! If you’re anything like the typical college then I’m sure you’re on the lookout for fun and unique costumes on a budget. This year, we got our creative juices flowing and came up with 151 homemade costume ideas that you can easily throw together for the big Halloween party. We’ve provided directions for each idea, but strongly encourage you to think out of the box and use your own creativity to make these the best costumes ever!
For this you need a big long sleeve shirt, a belt to tie around it, red pants, a red pointy hat and a BEARD! You might already own some of this stuff, but for the things you don’t have take a trip to the dollar store!
Get color streamers from a party or craft store, an old shirt and an old pair of pants/shorts/skirt/bottoms from a thrift store. Then cut the streamers and tape them to your clothes- you’re good to go.
Go to the craft store and get multi colored feather boas and bags of individual feathers. Glue them to a colored dress, skirt and shirt, shorts and shirt, whatever clothing you would like!
Get a one-piece yellow swimsuit or a yellow shirt, black shorts, and a yellow headband from a thrift or dollar store. Draw brown stripes on the yellow top. Add some yellow shoes and red blush. Pikachu!
For this you want the illusion of the costume to be hoarder standing in a pile of junk. Get a long skirt and get a bunch of junk to cover it with (McDonald’s wrappers, useless knick knacks, cockroaches, etc.) For makeup, just mess everything up! Find a sweater at a cheap price, to make an almost stereotype grandma/grandpa.
Things you need: wig, hair buns (scouring pads with the hair wrapped around them), satin fabric to wrap around like a dress, white boots (sale rack rain boots), wrist spikes – foam and electrical tape, tights. All of this can be found with some trips to the thrift/dollar/craft store.
For the clothes, just wear whatever color you want to be (pink, green, yellow, blue, etc.) To make the head of the hippo get a piece of cardboard: cut up the board until we made it look like a mailbox. Use superglue, regular paper for the eyes and teeth, and small wooden sticks for the eyebrows. Take a strip of poster board to a headband size to your liking and super glue. This is the band that is going to keep the rest of the board up. Take the poster board and fold it over the headband, superglue the sides and cut the excess part off the front. You need to super glue a separate piece for the back and front (face). For the mouth part, you need to fold it to a table shape, superglue the front of the mouth, and connect to the rest of the head. By now, it should look like a mailbox. Add eyes, eyebrows, teeth and ears.
Take your white oxford and high wasted jeans. Tuck your oxford into your jeans. If you are a girl, put your hair in pigtails. Take a piece of tape and wrap it around the brim of a pair of black glasses. Pack your backpack with your textbooks, pulling the straps as tight as possible until your backpack is securely on your back. Put a couple of pens in your pocket. Make sure your white ankle socks are showing! Also, know that pi equals 3.14159265. Don’t be surprised if someone asks to copy your calculus notes!
For girls- wear spandex shorts, a sports bra, tennis shoes and a robe. For guys- wear gym shorts, tennis shoes and a robe. Be sure to wrap your hands in tape or wear boxing gloves if you have them.
Get two pieces of foam board (gray and black). Print the icons large and paste them on. Use foil for the apple on the back and silver duct tape for the outside rim. Use regular duct tape to keep the two pieces together and as shoulder straps.
After buying plenty of bright colored balloons, pin the ends of them to any clothing of your choice. Follow by wrapping the balloons lightly in plastic wrap to give the effect of a bag. You can leave the coal flavor out of this bag of jellybeans!
Put on all black pants and a black long sleeved shirt. Use yellow tape for the road lines going down your body. On both sides of the “road” glue or tape small cars driving up and down. Make sure it’s not rush hour or you might be late to the party!
Attention all last minute costume makers! This costume is for you! For something easy and humorous, wear a simple full pink outfit and add a simple “Floyd” name-tag.
Grab some old white clothes and splatter paint across them. Find a piece of cardboard and cut it into the shape of a paint palette. Find a paint brush, and your costume is ready to go.
You won’t be raining on anyone’s parade with this costume! The key ingredient is lots and lots of cotton balls. Find old clothes that you don’t wear anymore and glue cotton balls to your whole body, or at least whole upper body. Don’t forget the squirt gun, and add lightning bolts to the cloud as an extra touch.
Okay, I’m going to set the scene on this one. Party is lame. There’s music blasting, but no one is dancing. You walk in wearing your all black outfit, with your iPod headphones in your ears and iPod in pocket. Dance your butt off in the middle of the room. Party starts! The solution: you in your iPod Dancer costume!
This is a classic! Take a cardboard box and cut out one side, looking kind of like a TV. Cover that open side with blue plastic wrap and tape fake fish or aquatic stickers all over. Don’t forget Nemo and the gang!
Easy: Wear all black and a black face mask
Find a square box and cut 3 holes in it for your head and arms. Paint the box black. Cut out 9 squares of construction paper colored red, yellow, green, blue, white, and orange. Glue or tape the 9 squares onto the box. Poke your head and arms through the holes. Now you are a walking, talking, partying Rubik’s cube!
Okay, you’re that dude that just likes to party, no costume necessary. Well you can’t be a walking party foul on Halloween, so just throw on a baseball cap. Cut yourself a piece of yarn about 3 to 4 inches long. Find a leaf or two outside. Tape one side of the yarn to the leaf and the other to the bill of your hat. Let it dangle all night long. When people ask you what you are for Halloween you can tell them that you are a leaf blower, then blow the leaf that is dangling in your face.
Simple: bed sheet. Throw on your bra and undies, ladies. Twist the sheet up to make a toga that fits your preference! If people say “oh, real creative, a Greek god/goddess” you can explain to them that you just left the Animal House toga party.
Many people are familiar with the movie scene of Tom Cruise sliding across the family room floor in an oxford, underwear, and calf socks. This scene was featured in the movie Risky Business. The scene has become pretty popular, but the movie is not as noted. Anyways, take a trip to the nearest Goodwill or Wal-Mart. Buy a cheap oxford button down shirt (white), a pair of tighty whities, and some calf socks. Grab your favorite pair of sunglasses. You will be the life of the party! I’m sure by the end of the night you will be sliding across the living room floor. That’s risky business.
Get a bodybuilder suit, or stuff pillows in your shirt, whichever. Find yourself a bald cap. Cover the suit, cap and your face with silver/gray paint.
Take a trip to a craft or Halloween store to get a long beard and wig combo. Then cut up a bed sheet and wear it for your bottoms. For extra credit, get Fedex box and a Wilson soccer ball to complete the look.
Find a trucker hat, mullet wig, fake teeth, old jeans, a white tank top, and a plaid shirt to make this costume a success. Cut your old jeans into some short “jorts” (denim jean shorts)and cut the sleeves off your plaid shirt. Add the wig, hat, and teeth to finish off the look.
This look can be made a million different ways. Wear a very bright and very flowery outfit. Add a cool headband, some rosy glasses, and a peaceful attitude. Bring your hula hoop if you want to knock over drinks all night long.
Take a tall laundry basket and cut a hole in the bottom that you can fit your body through. Tie two pieces of string to the top of the basket to hold it up. Fill the basket with laundry. Do not insert detergent.
Show people how magical you can be! Wear black pants, a white dress shirt, white gloves, a black top hat, and of course, a black cape. For a little more, add an old-timers mustache and a magic wand. Please don’t bring a live rabbit to the party; go the stuffed route. Say Abra Cadabra you are ready!
You will need a black suit, matrix-style sunglasses, and ear-bud headphones (along with a nice haircut). This can be used for an FBI agent costume, CIA agent costume, etc. You’re under arrest!
Find a referee shirt, create one by applying black stripes to a white shirt, or vice-versa. Make sure you have a whistle around your neck. Final touch: paint your face like a clown. Touchdown!
This costume requires fake blood, a hospital gown, and band-aids for added effect. Put some band-aids on your face with fake blood dripping out of them. If you can snag an IV stand, you’re straight ballin’.
Put on your running gear, gloves and a toboggan for this costume! Pin a placard with a number to the front of your shirt and run like the wind!
Wear a black suit and a cape, if possible. If you already have those, all you need is fake blood and plastic vampire teeth. Make the fake blood appear to drip down your face from the mouth. Add white face paint and black around the eyes to look indistinguishable. You could always go the Twilight route and throw a pound of glitter on your face.
You will need bed sheets, a small white lampshade, and artistic skills. Cover your body with bed sheets just enough so that you can walk. Then, put pins in it so you’ll know where to draw the logo. Choose a simple toothpaste brand logo and draw it in the correct spot. Add the lampshade on to your head.
For this, you should use a large whiteboard and some dry erase markers. Put a string around the whiteboard so that it can hang around your neck (put something soft on top for your neck). Use white paint everywhere outside of the white board. Draw the game, and people will likely want to play your costume.
This costume will take a ton of cotton balls. Find a long-sleeve shirt that you don’t care about and put glue all over it, covering every inch with cotton balls. Do the same for your pants and shoes. Add white face paint if needed. Watch out for werewolves.
You will need scrubs, a white coat, and a stethoscope. Add bloody gloves to become a surgeon. Keep a small notepad in your back pocket so you can write people prescriptions. Let me check your vitals!
You will need an extra large potato sack, white paint, a black permanent marker, a small piece of string, and fake cash. Paint the potato sack white, and after it dries, put a big money sign right in the middle. Cut a hole in the top of the bag for your face, and cut leg holes at the bottom. Then, tie off the bag above the face and add loads of fake cash.
Use a bed sheet (with paint of your choice) and a lampshade. Put an old pillow over the lampshade and cover all of it with any extra bed sheet material. Use a pin to keep it all in place and paint everything (try to use different colors for the top and bottom of the mushroom. Paint some circles with different colors everywhere.

This is pretty self explanatory, but if you’re a guy, choose a nice dress and let a girlfriend put makeup on you. If you’re a girl, wear jeans and a t-shirt, and draw on a fake mustache.
This costume is a great arts and crafts project! You will need a lot of colorful foam (found at most arts and crafts stores) and a hot glue gun. Start by cutting out a large red foam circle. Then, cut strips of different colored foam and glue them on top of the circle. When you are done gluing the foam strips, cut arm holes on each side of the circle. Place your arm through the holes and wrap yourself up like a taco!
Cut a whole in a cardboard box and decorate the outside with hearts and lips. Cut a hole on one side to make room for your face. Take a sharpie and write “Kissing Booth” above this hole. Place the box on your head and make everyone kiss you!

Paint a large piece of yellow cardboard and hang it around your neck. Carry a marker and have people write on your costume. Talk about an easy way to score some phone numbers!
This is an easy look to pull off. Wear jeans and a white shirt to start. Add a blue vest with a name tag. Lastly, hand out stickers and say hello to everyone you see!
Wrap yourself in a small comforter and then wrap the comforter in aluminum foil. Presto! You’re a burrito! For added effect, carry packets of hot sauce to hand out to strangers.

Use construction paper, cardboard, or plastic wrap to create some webbing for between the curved wire. Glue feathers or cotton balls to your webbing material.

Another cool idea to do as a group- Fall: A hunter green shirt, maroon shorts, brown leggings/tights. Then glue some dollar tree leaves on yourself! Winter: Wrap a white tree skirt around a white dress, spray paint some boots silver, and glue/tape tinsel on the tree skirt. Maybe get yourself a green small plain wreath from the dollar store and wear it around your neck. Spring- Pink leggings, spring dress and some vine flowers from the dollar store. Summer: Get a yellow visor from the dollar store. Wear yellow leggings and yellow shorts. Paint a sun on a big white shirt and your set!
