Snow White Halloween Costume

I’m pretty sure you have a wig somewhere in your house for this look. Throw on a wig, grab an apple and put on some ruby red lipstick. Pair the accessories with a blue top and yellow skirt and Snow White will be reborn.

Bat Halloween Costume

You will be glad you have not yet tossed out your broken umbrella with this costume. Cut your umbrella into two and hand stitch or hot glue it unto your black hoodie. The metal hinges can be fastened with a black tape, so your costume actually plays the part. Make bat ears from foam core and add some feathers if you wish for texture.

50 Shades of Grey Halloween Costume

Go for the PG version of a Fifty Shades of Grey costume. All you need are a couple of paint swatches from your local hardware store and tape them unto your black t-shirt and you are good to go. Even Christian Grey would give you credit for this ensemble.
