Halloween is approaching fast, and if you are looking for a unique and budget-friendly costume, Goodwill can be your best friend. With a little creativity and DIY skills, you can easily transform second-hand clothes into a spooky and stylish Halloween costume. Here are five DIY Halloween costumes you can thrift for and how to create them:
The ghost costume is a classic and easy to make. You will need a white sheet or a lace curtain, scissors, and a marker. Cut two holes for your eyes and use the marker to draw a ghostly face. You can add some fun accessories like sunglasses, hats, ties, or anything to make your ghost unique to you!
A witch costume is always a popular choice for Halloween. Look for a long black dress at Goodwill to start your costume assembly. You can find accessories to go with your look such as shoes, scarves, or a belt. And don’t forget to get your witches’ hat!
3. Barbie and Ken
A popular choice this year is to dress up as Barbie and Ken from the new Barbie movie! Find anything fun and pink for this look, such as shoes, purses, a sparkly top, and colorful pants. The best part about this costume idea is that it’s very customizable, so you can make it your own!
4. Wednesday Adams
Show your darker side this Halloween with a Wednesday Adams look! Not only will you have to master her classic pigtail braids and frown, but finding her ‘look’ is an absolute must. Find a ruffly black dress with chunky black platform heels to master her style. Bonus points if you can create your own sidekick, ‘Thing’.
Take your Halloween to new heights by dressing up as Pete “Maverick” Mitchell from Top Gun! This is an easy and budget friendly costume that you may already have items for in your closet. You’ll need a white t-shirt, jeans, black work boots, aviator sunglasses, and of course a bomber jacket.
So, with a little creativity and some thrift store finds, you can easily create a unique and affordable Halloween costume. So, don’t be afraid to get creative and have fun with your DIY Halloween costume this year!
