Halloween. The most popular night of the year for people of any age. For teenage guys, it is the perfect night for dressing up. You get to be something or someone else for a few hours. Costumes range from the most elaborate imaginable to the simplest expression of creativity. It is easy to walk in one of the pop-up costume shops. It’s also easy to scroll through the online offerings for a costume. The thing is, these ready-made costumes can be pricey. There are some fantastic and credit worthy DIY costume ideas out there. These costumes are super easy to pull together and will have heads turning. Check out the links below each description for everything you’ll need!
Chick MagnetCheck Price on Amazon
This one is simple and hilarious. Dollar stores often have the supplies to make this costume. All you need is cardboard, scissors, and paint. Don’t forget tin foil (or silver glitter), adhesive, and some baby chick stuffies. If you cannot find the stuffies, you can make pom poms from bright yellow wool. To make the pom poms look like chicks, color and cut out some orange paper beaks and glue them to the middle of the pom-pom. The “eyes” for the chicks can be peppercorns or small black beads glued into place. Cut cardboard into the shape of a magnet-use a horseshoe shape- and paint it red. Cover the ends of your magnet in foil or glitter.
If that is a little too time consuming, there are options. For your supplies you can find everything for this costume on Amazon. Clothing itself can be a t shirt and jeans or take it up a notch and dress up in a dress shirt, dress pants, and a tie. Slicked back hair and dark sunglasses complete the look.
Candy WrapperCheck Price on Amazon
In the history all of the great DYI costumes, this one takes the cake….er, candy. For this sweet number, all you need is a glue gun and some glue sticks, your favorite treats, and a little gold bling. Want to crank it up a notch? Carry a portable Bluetooth speaker and play your favorite Rap tunes while you show off. Highlight your great style and imagination. REALLY want to take this to the next level? Grab a battery operated or wireless Bluetooth microphone. Sing along with your music. If you can’t carry a tune, a pretend mic still makes a great addition to this outfit. Most of the materials for this costume are available in your local Dollar store. For ease and convenience, you can also find all of them on Amazon. If you want to find everything you need in a collection, Amazon also carries that!
Cereal KillerCheck Price on Amazon
This great idea for a quick do it yourself costume has been around for a while, but it still gets a pretty good giggle. All you really need to do for the Cereal Killer costume is to find a shirt and pants that you are not too worried about. Once you have your outfit picked out, hit the supermarket. Find some of those mini boxes of cereal and hot glue them to your pants and shirt. Use a knife or box cutter to create slits in the cereal boxes. Use red craft paint around the slashes, then leave plastic knives buried in the cereal boxes. If you cannot find the mini cereal boxes, use one regular sized box of cereal. It’s still a victim, but don’t glue it to your costume-just carry it around with you instead.
For extra props for this costume, you can make a trip to the Dollar store. Get a sinister mask or balaclava for your face, and a prop knife.
Amazon also carries all the necessary supplies for this one. This is a great option that makes more sense for putting together this costume for the big day.
Negan and Lucille Walking Dead CostumeCheck Price on Amazon
For all the fans of The Walking Dead, the next idea is a real killer costume. Even if you are not a huge fan, this is still a fantastic outfit that is all attitude. The best part is, unlike most DIY Halloween costumes, you can keep on using most of the pieces. To put together this Negan costume, all you need is a pair of jeans, some square-toed boots, and a tee shirt. Add a well-worn leather jacket. Don’t own a leather jacket? Check out your local thrift store. They will be sure to have something there that will work for you. Preferably in black. You can complete the costume with your very own version of Lucille, too. The thrift store will likely have a baseball bat sitting around with the used sporting goods. Or you have an old one laying around you do not use anymore. For the barbed wire, a black magic marker and a steady hand and you can draw that accessory right on the bat. Finish off with a generous coat of red craft paint on the top third of the bat and you are all set. Do not forget a handful of grease in your hair. Can’t find what you need in a thrift store? Amazon has a few things that are worth looking into. They have replicas of both Negans jacket and Lucille.Check Price on Amazon
