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!
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.
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!
Wear a spiffy suit with a shiny tie, find an awfully unrealistic toupee like wig, and be a complete jerk to strangers. Talk as loud as you can with a deep voice. You will be surprised how much you look and sound like Donald Trump.
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!
