Happy October 1!  It’s unbelievable that we’re already into Fall, October no less.  But, that means that it’s time to start thinking about the best DIYs of the year: Halloween costumes!  I’ve always loved making my own costume.  The earliest one I can remember is a sea monster costume where I dyed cheese cloth and sewed it to a sweatsuit.  I know I was still in daycare at the time, so I was little, but I can still remember how freaking excited I was to make and wear that costume.  There have been lots of others throughout the years: Pumpkin (made out of a pumpkin yard bag stuffed with newspaper, My Little Pony, Cupcake, Pink Flamingo, the list goes on… And I highly encourage you to take the time to make yours this year!  Which is why I’m sharing some creative, yet easy, DIY costumes on the very first day of the fine month of October, because I always push mine off until I’m scrambling last minute and have to take a half day off work to finish it. Which was the case last year.  When I was the most adult I had ever been.  So shameful!


Anyway, here are some of my favorites that I’ve found across the web:

Last year, I made this costume.  But, instead of sticking with the swan theme, I went hot pink and turned it into a flamingo!

A super easy but fancy-looking masquerade mask.  I bet it would take you 30-45 minutes tops.
