Now is as good as a time as any to think about what your next Halloween costume is going to be. For easy homemade Halloween costumes, you don't need a lot. Some go all out and have costumes with lights and moving parts. Some Halloween costumes are simply store-bought, which there's nothing wrong with that. But if you wanna get people talking and stand out, you'll make your own. You should never think you need to go all out to make your own costume, either. In fact, there are plenty of costumes you can make using things you already have at home. Here are a few ideas.


The easiest of all costumes. Grab an old, white sheet, cut a couple of holes in it and you're good to go.

Pac-Man Ghosts
Just as easy, but requires four people and four different colors of sheets. Blue, Pink, Orange and Red for Inky, Pinky, Blinky and Clyde.

Charlie Brown's Ghost
This is almost as easy as the others, just requires a black sharpie or marker. Do exactly as you did to make a ghost, but also color in large black polka-dots to have the appearance of all the mistake holes that Charlie Brown had in his Halloween special.

I used to do this one a lot. Get your dad's old clothes or any type of farm-type wear (long-sleeve plaid shirt and jeans or overalls) and stuff your clothes openings with leaves so it looks like you're stuffed. Ta-da! You're a scarecrow!

Another easy one. Get yourself a bonnet, wear some pajamas, get a binky and/or a bottle. Wanna go all out? If you have some adult diapers, make sure of those. (just not literally)

Shirt n' Jeans, mess up your hair, thick make-up for guys and girls and bring your video game guitar or your Paper Jamz if you have one.

Dress like the opposite sex
Always a crowd pleaser! Mostly for the guys. Dress in girls clothing, get a roll of sockets or water balloons and you'll be good to go. It's a little harder to be a guy if you're a girl. Use coffee grounds for scruff (or some kind of pencil like eyeliner) tuck your hair in a hat - you should be fine.

Dress as an old man or old woman
Not much easier than raiding your mom and dad's old wardrobe. Make sure it fits okay. That means guys pants have to hike up to their chest.

There are SO many more. I'd love to hear your easy ideas in the comments below.
