Easy Adult Costume Ideas

Costumes aren’t just for kids anymore.

It’s getting close to Halloween so it’s time to go through your closet and come up with a costume. Whatever it’s for, costumes can be a lot of fun. Come up with something that you like or something that compliments you personality. For example, if you really like to joke around, do a funny costume.

Don’t want to spend a lot of money on something that you will probably only wear a couple of times? Make your own costume. Here are some easy do-it-yourself ideas:

  1. ScarecrowScarecrow– Use an old set of sweats by cutting jagged edges on the arms, legs and bottom of top. Tie a rope around the waist, bottom of the legs, and the end of the arms. Use an old hat to glue some yellow yarn in the inside for hair. Add some yellow yarn inside the leg and arm holes. Add a little paint to your face and your all set.
  2. ghostGhost– Grab an old white sheet, drape it over your body, and mark hole for the eyes. Then cut little holes to peek through. Then draw a misshapen oblong mouth with a black magic marker and fill in the circle completely.
  3. witch1Witch– Grab an old black dress and wrap an old shawl around your shoulders. Wear a pair of pointy boots and funky stripped socks on your feet. Then grab an inexpensive black witch hat at the market. Top it off with a musty green face paint, and some fake warts. Maybe even find an old broom to carry with you!
  4. mummyMummy– Wrap your self in toilet paper or gauze… or maybe get someone else to wrap you up. This is too easy!     Then just wear a pair of white tennis shoes and socks. Don’t forget to leave room to peek out and holes for your pinkies.
  5. dogSpotted Dog– Wear some white sweats, with big black spots colored on it. Add a black dot on your nose, and a thick piece of white rope for a tail. Then, put some floppy ears (made of old socks or just construction paper) on a head band, and you are ready to go!
  6. cowboyCowboy/Cowgirl– Find some tight blue-jeans and an old western shirt for the main part of costume. Then accessorize with a big cowboy hat, boots, and a belt with a big buckle. If you want to go all out carry a rope to wrangle your friends with. Maybe, add a bandanna or a leather vest for some extra pizazz, or even a badge to be the sheriff.
