What to Wear Wednesday: Crazy Easy DIY Halloween Costumes

Hello Lovely,

October is here, which means it's time to start sifting through the depths of the internet to find a costume that's trendy, but still classic; crafty, but still easy to make; and unique, but still mainstream (nothing sucks more than when people don't get your costume). To ease your pain, we've put together a list of some of our favourite DIY costumes you need to steal for Halloweekend. Let the crafting begin!

 

Tacos are easily a food favourite, so why not dress like one? This costume is so easy to make and it's totally perfect to wear for free burrito day at Chipotle on Halloween. (If you live near a Chipotle, moment of silence for the rest of us who don't). Anyways, the taco purse is definitely my favourite part and I kind of want to just wear this everyday. That's acceptable, right?? Grab the guac and the hot sauce, and read the how-to because you're about to be one big taco! (via Aww, Sam!)

So there you have it! I hope this list helped you to decide on what you'll need to have an awesome Halloween costume this year. Sadly I'll only be wearing my costume at Trunk or Treat. Jobs really should let us adults get into the spirit of things; if I can dress like an elf at Christmas, I should be able to come as Nicki Minaj or Beyonce from the Feeling Myself music video for Halloween! No? Pushing it? Okay, maybe you're right.
