Five Last Minute Homemade Costumes To Get You Through Hallowe’en
Having a busy week and got nothing ready to wear at your Hallowe’en bash? Fear not, we’re here to help with a host of last minute homemade costume ideas to get you ready for the spookiest night out of the year.
Enter the Hunger Games
With the third instalment of the Hunger Games coming up next month, why not channel one of our favourite movie heroines, Ms. Katniss Everdeen? Some of your wardrobe staples will do the trick for this look. All you’ll need is a black hoodie, vest, jeans and your winter riding boots. Boom. Then grab a plastic hanger, elastic band and a knitting needle and you’ve got your very own bow and arrow to take into the arena. The final touch? Katniss’ killer side plait of course.
On Wednesdays we wear pink
Take a leaf out of Regina George’s style book and snip two (strategically placed, ahem) holes in an old tank top you’re sure to have lurking in a drawer somewhere. Pair it with your favourite mini and heels and you’re good to go. So fetch.
Angelina Art Attack
Before Amal Clooney set Venice alight with her gorgeous Oscar de la Renta wedding gown, Angelina Jolie made headlines in her Atelier Versace dress featuring some of her children’s artwork. Follow in Mrs Pitt’s footsteps by popping on a white dress (or beg, borrow or steal one from your flatmate) and fashioning yourself a wedding train from a spare bed sheet. Then dig out your Crayolas and get creative. Simples. And if you’re heading to a house party, make sure to bring along some art supplies and invite people to add their own designs. A sure-fire way to make some new mates on a night out.
Who's for tea?
Raid your Granny’s wardrobe for a long chunky cardigan, floor-length skirt, neck scarf and an old-school blouse to transform yourself into the one and only Mrs Doyle this spooky season. Accessorise with a teapot, tin of cakes and some dodgy lipstick and you’re golden. Ah go on.
Get by with a little help from your friends
If you’re heading out with the girls this Hallowe’en, gather some basic supplies and have a quick group DIY session before your pre-drinks to make yourselves some simple costumes. Some of our favourite examples here are scrabble tiles, human rock-paper-scissors and lego pieces. Be creative and have fun ladies!
