Yikes, did you just get a last-minute invite to a Halloween party? Or did you spend so much time planning the kids’ costumes that you completely forgot about your own? Don’t worry, because we’ve got some ideas for fun Halloween costumes for the whole family that you can easily put together and still impress your friends!
Box of Timbits
Who doesn’t love Timbits! You’ll be the hit of the Halloween party, especially if you carry a real box of the little morsels with you. Bonus: get your BFF to paint a plastic garbage can brown, and you’ll have your Double Double!
Everyone has a bag of that fake spider web in the decorations box, right? Wrap some around your kid, add some plastic spiders and spooky makeup, and you’re ready for tricks and treats.
Rosie the Riveter
Rock this iconic symbol for women’s equality with a denim shirt, work pants, red bandana, and an up-do.
Don’t forget hair and makeup! Here’s a super easy tutorial:
For this one, all you need is an animal mask, a party hat, and a drink. Take it uptown with some formal wear!
This one is more easy-ish, but the cuteness factor makes it worth the trip to the fabric store. Bonus: the kid can help with the glueing! We’ve got the step-by-step tutorial for you right here.
Grab a full-length body suit from the party store and get glueing. Or, if you’re really in a pinch, pull out those red long johns from the ski bag.
This Halloween, no matter what you wear, have fun, be safe, and don’t eat too much candy. Or do, we won’t judge.
