Halloweekend Day One: Super-Easy Costume Ideas

Friday, October 24, 2014

October 31st is coming soon, y'all!

Because it's basically next Friday, I want to do something fun. I'm writing a weekend-long series called "Halloweekend", and I'll be sharing easy costume ideas, seasonal books, and other fun stuff with you over the next three days.

If you don't celebrate Halloween, that's a-ok. I'll be doing lots of Fall-related things that you can do for any occasion this October/November, and they don't have to be spooky.

Speaking of spooky, I don't do scary/creepy things. These will be fun, mostly DIY ideas, with an emphasis on fun.

So, with that in mind, let's get into some super-easy costume ideas! :) These costumes only require one key item, and you'll be able to find many of these around your own home. Many of these costumes will also work for both guys and girls, too. Plus, I'm all for modesty, so all of these costumes cover up nicely.

Bandana - Rosie the Riveter, Fix-It Felix, or Rock Star

Easy Costume Ideas Using Bandanas: Rosie the Riveter/Fix it Felix + Rockstar

For all you history buffs out there (or ladies wanting to go for a girl-power costume), Rosie the Riveter is a great and easy idea. Just tie a red bandana around a messy bun, wear red lipstick, and roll the sleeves up on your denim chambray shirt. Add jeans and neutral shoes, and you're set!

Fix-it Felix from "Wreck-it Ralph" is super-easy, too. All you have to do is follow the same steps as the Rosie the Riveter option, but just tuck the bandana in your pocket. This is an easy option for guys or gals; just adapt it using clothes you have.

Wanna be a Rock Star? Tie a bandana in black - or any color you like - around your head, or wear it as a headband. Then, wear black or very dark blue jeans with a band t-shirt (you can thrift these, or wear a tee from a concert you went to this summer). Add black boots and bright lipstick in a color of your choice and you're done!

Broom - Sorcerer's Apprentice Mickey or Minnie from Fantasia
I absolutely loved watching Fantasia when I was little. I loved all of the bright colors and music. But my favorite short in the film had to be "The Sorcerer's Apprentice", where Mickey Mouse is an apprentice to the wizard Yen Sid (Disney spelled backwards!) and gets into all kinds of mischief. Part of the short had Mickey accidentally causing all the brooms in the castle to dance.

To be Mickey or Minnie from "The Sorcerer's Apprentice", just grab a broom. Easy, right? Then, for Mickey, grab a blue hoodie, blue jeans, and brown shoes or any tennis shoes/sneakers. For Minnie, wear a blue dress, black tights (polka dots optional), and flats, along with a black cardigan if it gets cold. 

For both of these costumes, if you have Mickey or Minnie ears, rock them on Halloween! Also, for a little extra Disney magic, wear or carry glow bracelets or glow sticks.

I hope y'all liked these costumes! What are you going to be this Halloween?
