Super Easy Halloween Costume Ideas

My daughter Natalie has always loved dressing up. This year she keeps changing her mind on what she wants to be for Halloween. She gets an allowance, and that usually goes towards outfits. Since she's on a budget, she doesn't spend that much.

So far, here's what she's worn this season. Right now she's saying she's going to be the zombie with the mask. But it could change. And heck, sometimes she DOES change. Last year she went trick-or-treating in one costume, came home after an hour and changed into a different one.

It's like she's living at Downton Abbey. I've told her it's not required that she change her attire throughout the day, but she insists.


Anyway, here are the costumes:







Stranger Things 3 was pretty awesome, right? I especially liked Robin, who worked at Scoops Ahoy with Steve. This is the dress version of their uniform.



It was at Hot Topic. The name tag did say Robin, but I had one made on Etsy for Natalie.


She actually needs the zombie shirt for the Thriller dance she's doing with her school. She made it herself. She bought a white t-shirt, fake blood, plus powder dirt. She also used real dirt and took out her hatred of math on the shirt in the backyard.












It turned out like this. The light up mask was found at Spirit Halloween for $19.95. She won't be wearing the mask for her performance but thinks it adds to the costume for Halloween. But she's also thinking of making her face all bloody for Halloween and not using the mask after all. Again. I never know what she's planning.






Natalie loves Mean Girls, so she wanted to stroll into school dressed like Damian. Was it Spirit Week? No. She was just bored.





You can buy the blue hoodie on Amazon here as well as the glasses here.



My son knows what his costume is. Three Hole Punch Jim from The Office. You can easily make this by getting a white button up shirt and tie. I cheated and got the adhesive buttons and tie in a kit from Spirit Halloween for $7.99. I figured I'd mess it up somehow. I found the button up shirt at Kohl's.




For a while she was obsessed with the Area 51 raid and aliens. So when she saw this on Amazon, she insisted on getting it. You can buy it here.







So there you go. A bunch of costumes.


What are you or your kids going to be for Halloween?
