6 fashion-forward Halloween costumes you can make

October 31st is just around the corner, babes. Still in need of a costume? We’ll get ya dressed to impress in no time—with stuff you already own!


Create a buzz as a cute queen bee…
Break out the black and yellow. This queen bee getup will have all your besties buzzing with costume envy. Grab a yellow tank and layer it over a black turtleneck. With thick black electrical tape, create stripes by wrapping rows of tape around your. Toss on a pair of black leggings, black boots and yellow leg warmers. Craft DIY wings at home with cardboard and glitter, or hit up the store for some shimmering bee wings. Put the “queen” in queen bee with a glittery tiara…and an antennae headband, of course. Finish off the look with yellow and black eye makeup, and add sparkle some sparkle to your cheeks with a bit o’ glitter.

Go gorgeous as a gypsy…

Mastering the gypsy look means breaking out all your boho pieces. Pop a loose-fitting tunic over a colorful maxi, and tie a bright scarf around your hips, letting the ends dangle. Add piles of bangles and necklaces and larger-than-life hoops. Tease your mane and tie it up in a sequined kerchief.

Extra credit: Go wild with makeup...purple eye shadow and glossy lips will do the trick.

Calling all Gleeks…

Unleash your inner Rachel Berry this Halloween. Pick out prim ballet flats or basic loafers, white knee-high socks, a plaid skirt and a buttoned up blouse with an argyle sweater. Complete the costume with a bright pink hair band. Don’t forget to flash a Glee-worthy smile when ya go door to door, and maybe work on your scales a little.
Extra credit: Carry around some sheet music and pop a gold star on your face.
You can’t say “no” to a gnome…
Cute dress? Check. Colorful leotard and tights? Check. Chunky belt? Check. Combat boots? Check. You’ve got all the ingredients to go out as a girly garden gnome this Halloween. The only thing you’re missing is a cone-shaped hat. Whittle one outta red construction paper…just curl the paper into a cone shape and tape.

Extra credit: Carry a small potted plant while trick-or-treating, or don a long-haired white wig.

Dress up as a chic shopaholic

If you are one to shop ‘till ya drop this costume idea will suit you just fine, babe. Pop on your darkest skinnies, too-high heels, and a glittery top with a faux-fur vest. Don’t forget oversized shades and a billion baubles—try a statement necklace or three. Max out on crazy makeup: shiny pink gloss, electric green shadow, a mountain of mascara and golden body glitter. You’re set to shine all night, darling.

Extra credit: Stuff your purse with tonsa Monopoly money and fill your arms with shopping bags from all your fave stores. (Psst: You can hold more candy!)

Be a barista babe…

Here’s one for all you Starbucks lovers. All ya need to rock this getup is a black shirt and pants and a green apron (a green tee would work, too). Print off a pic of the coffee house’s logo and tape it onto your apron/tee. Tie your hair back in a high pony, tuck a Sharpie behind your ear and your order’s up, doll.
