Popular DIY Halloween Costumes

Halloween costumes can get pretty expensive, especially considering you’ll most likely only wear them for one night. These DIY costumes are not only easy and budget friendly, they are most likely going to be the most popular of 2016! Check them out!

Kenneth Bone: 

He became an overnight internet sensation after asking a question during the second presidential debate while wearing his bright-fashion forward red sweater. This look is sure to make an appearance at your Halloween party. That’s if people haven’t just adopted the look for every day now. Ken Bone made that happen.

Harley Quinn: 

Her flirty look is so easy to recreate on a budget it’s bound to become as popular as the mouse/bunny/cute animal costumes that only require fishnets, ears and a corset.


The Joker: 

Because Harley Quinn needs her Puddin! Even if you’re not going as a couple, there will be so many girls dressed as Harley, you’re guaranteed to find your match. Plus his costume is really easy and budget friendly. Hit up a consignment shop and grab yourself a coat and some accessories.

Hillary Clinton: 

Hey, it’s been done! I bet it didn’t take much planning either because you can find this whole outfit at your local nicely dressed lady store.

Chewbacca Mom: 

Someone HAS to do this! All you need is a Chewbacca mask (if she didn’t buy them all lol) a black t-shirt, and maybe a steering wheel. Facebook live the whole thing just like she did! SO easy!

Eleven From Stranger Things: 

This girl was a HIT this year! Not only did she bring back everyone’s love of Eggo Waffles, but she saved Mike! You need a pink dress, blue jacket, white shoes/socks and a wig. Throw in a box of Eggos for a bonus.

Barb From Stranger Things: 

The least we can do for Barb after she clearly got the short end of the stick is dedicate a Halloween costume to her! Visit your local Goodwill or resale shop and grab high waisted jeans, a button up top and large frame glasses. #JusticeForBarb.

This is a guy’s or girls costume especially now that the reboot was a female cast! Jumpsuit, hat, and boots and you’re done!


After the release of PokemonGo you can expect to see dozens of Pikachu at your Halloween Party. Especially since Pikachu is so easy to recreate:
