Halloween Series: Creative and Fun Costume Ideas/Tutorials

NO MORE CAT EARS WITH TUTUS!

Welcome to the first post of Halloween Series! This series contain 4 different categories of Halloween related ideas for you to jazz up this year’s Halloween! In this post I will share Costume Ideas to inspire you and show you something different from just having bunny/cat ears ! Subscribe to make sure you don’t miss a post on Halloween decorations, nails ideas, last-minute costumes, and most importantly, Halloween FOOD ideas for your party!

I love Halloween because you get to dress up like anything and you can put the most dramatic makeup on your face and no one will judge. (Or maybe they do, I just don’t care…) BUT, I don’t ever spend too much time on making my Halloween costumes. I would literally start preparing the night before and grab whatever I have around the house. If you’re like me, you need no worry! I put together some creative and fun yet very doable Halloween costume ideas and inspirations with tutorials or shopping options!

  1. Vintage Celebrities

As many times as people have done this look, being able to dress up like a Hollywood Star from the 50s is really a privilege. Halloween is the only day where people won’t think you’re crazy for dreaming to be one!

  1. Maleficent – The wicked witch

I am guessing that there will be quite a few attempts this year on being Maleficent (played by Angelina Jolie in Maleficent). Here are some ways you can achieve this look!

  1. Kissing Booth

Ha! I stumbled upon this on the Internet and thought it’s such an adorable idea. Not only that it easily be made at home with some cardboard boxes, paint and accessories, but you can also make a few bucks (;

For Couple’s Costume, you can have the guy wrapped in raffle tickets and have the girl in the kissing booth with sign saying “1 ticket/kiss, SOLD OUT”. Hehe, isn’t it so cute?

You can even make one for your pets… :D

  1. Cheshire Cat

Here’s the cuter version…

And here’s a more extreme (And a lot harder!) one from the Alice in Wonderland movie (2010)

Here’re some looks for you to recreate!

This is one of my favorite bird makeup. Feathers add a really cool effect to the look. **Please be sure to use faux feather on your face as real feather may cause allergies or infections!** 

  1. Kidnapped by Creepy Man!

This one is definitely creative and easy to make!

  • Find a cardboard box, cut a hole on the side of the box to fit yourself through
  • Make the Creeper by stuffing a baggy sweater and gloves then put a monster head on the top. (You can use any masks or heads)
  • Attached the Creeper to the box and cover the hole, but make sure to leave enough space so your lower body can fit through and look like the other half of the Creeper.

The same technique can also be applied to different illusions.

  1. Frozen

Last but not least, Disney’s biggest hit this year — FROZEN! Whether you want to be Elsa, Anna, or OLAF, you can find all those tutorials below! Maybe you can even go for a team costume!

I hope these costume ideas have sparked some lightbulbs !
