Choosing a costume is one of the best parts about Halloween (it's only second to eating bags of candy and chocolate, of course). When you're trying to find the perfect family, group, or couple costume, it's scary how easy it is to spend a lot of money on store-bought costumes. Plus, you never know who else might show up in the exact same costume at a house down the block! That's why these homemade Halloween costumes are the way to go, whether you're looking for creative ideas for babies, toddlers, kids, or adults. Whether you're aiming to be scary, funny, or a combination of the two, these Insta-worthy DIY Halloween costumes can easily be made with everyday items you already have on hand and a few last-minute Amazon Prime finds that will arrive just in the nick of time. Either way, these family-friendly costumes, which cover everything from pop culture to puns, are way cheaper and more creative than anything else you'll find at the store. Sorry, we just had to say it. Even if you don't consider yourself particularly crafty, these ideas are easy enough that the most glue gun-challenged among us can find something that works.
Evan Booth's costume for Halloween 2006 seemed to be a nondescript "dude in a wig" until you looked at the GAPING HOLE in his midsection! This was accomplished with a camera in the back of the shirt that recorded a background scene and fed it to a travel-size DVD player in the front that displayed the backdrop. In 2008, artist Nicole Magne used the idea for a costume recreating a scene from the movie Death Becomes Her where Goldie Hawn has a hole blown through her body. The creation process is detailed on her blog, and the Instructables version is available if you'd like to try this yourself.

You and your partner are the coolest/funniest/most photogenic pair. You know it's true, and the Instagram likes just about prove it! When Halloween hits, however, you both struggle to think of a clever couples Halloween costume that is just as awesome as you are. Or even if you come up with a few fun ideas, by year three or four of dressing up together, you're probably in desperate need of some inspiration. Rather than settling for another boring look (Mickey and Minnie, for example), switch things up with one of these creative — dare we say, genius — couples' Halloween costume ideas.
Here at BestProducts.com, we start planning our Halloween costumes early. Like, really early. We wouldn't dare be that person looking for a last-minute costume — and neither should you. There's nothing worse than someone asking you, "What are you supposed to be?" And apparently we’re not alone in our love for dressing up: Americans spent more than $3 billion on costumes last year.
Anditron always dresses up for Halloween, but when she was pregnant, she wanted to incorporate her bump without being too traditional. So she made a Death Star costume. Or rather, her round belly was the Death Star, with small x-wing fighters attached. The rest of her was dressed in black. The Darth Vader helmet was incidental, but worked well. Take a look at the Death Ray deployed:

She's the one called Sailor Moon and she's a pretty big deal. Sailor Moon is a classic when it comes to anime, so she's a staple in comic con crowds. That makes her an easy pick when you're trying to put together a great outfit to wear for a bit of cosplay. It won't give you any of the powers that she normally has, but it will get you quite a few positive comments when you head out wearing your Sailor Moon costume. Just make sure you're rocking the long blonde pig-tails. (We’ve got the wig if your own locks aren’t quite cutting it!)

Tank Girl breakdown: shirt – mine, target painted on w/acrylics; shorts – mine, vintage; vest – thrifted, and I added patches and doodads; socks – hub’s and thrifted rainbow toe socks (one cut off as an arm warmer); goggles – dollar store; belt & holsters – my husband’s; weapons – dollar stores (I painted the bright orange gun); boots – mine; bat – thrifted kid’s plastic bat that I covered in contact paper and athletic tape. Unfortunately, I didn’t have time to add wounds and bruises, but I did add some bandages. 🙂

Sure, going as a pirate when you were a kid was a ton of fun. But with all of the swashbuckling and rum-swilling, well, it’s even better as an adult! You can be a debaucherously brazen buccaneer or even a more mild-mannered privateer when you pick out one of our exclusive pirate costumes. Your persona will be entirely up to you. Just remember to grab a plastic sword and probably some gold coins, too, to enhance your adult pirate costume!
1. Crown and Coke: This is a fun couples costume or a bottle of coke complete with coke tab headband makes for a great costume on it’s own! The tutorial is pretty simple assuming you have a red dress on hand. Turn this into a group costume idea with friends and all be different bottles of pop! If you don’t have time to DIY, I found a cute option on Amazon: Coca Cola Dress and Diet Coke Dress. Jack Daniels T-shirt and black pants would be a super easy non DIY version too: Jack Daniel’s T-Shirt.
If you were a factory worker in the 1880s, you were probably toiling away at your job for an average of 60 hours a week, and it wasn't unheard of for textile laborers in New York to make only 75 cents a day, which was a paltry sum, even for the time. To bring attention to these unfair working conditions, labor organizers coordinated the first Labor Day parade on Tuesday, September 5, 1882.

Because so many people travel during Labor Day weekend (over 35 million, according to a AAA study), roads tend to be much more crowded—and because of that, they're more dangerous. According to data from the Fatality Analysis Reporting System, the U.S. saw an average of 308 fatal car accidents per year during Labor Day weekends from 2011 to 2015. That’s second only to the average number of fatal accidents seen during Memorial Day weekend (approximately 312 per year).

Fans of the TV show The Walking Dead will recognize the Governor and his undead daughter. Redditor TriforceKing and his sister wore this last Halloween. It helped that he already resembled the actor David Morrissey somewhat. A few people pointed out that the Governor didn’t lose his eye until after his daughter was gone, but who cares? It’s Halloween!


Halloween is the time we can publicly celebrate all those movies, TV shows, and pop culture icons we love so much. Deliver viral, video-quality jump-scares in an officially licensed Freddy Krueger costume, complete with his signature bladed glove. Or, if your Halloween typically tends to be more light-hearted, be the bringer of prehistoric magic with a Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom inflatable T-Rex costume.
The character Cherry Darling from the movie Planet Terror startled folks when they saw that one of her legs was a machine gun. Then it inspired some women to recreate the scene. Now, if you are a beautiful amputee like Lacey Henderson, who gained note as a college cheerleader a few years ago, you can make hay by cosplaying the character at fan events. Henderson has a webpage with instructions for those who aren't amputees on how to recreate the Cherry Darling look, and an annual competition is held for the best machine-gun-leg costume.
