Try one of these cheap homemade (and pretty awesome) Halloween costumes

Hey, Halloween is three days away. Do you have your costume yet? What? You procrastinated and don’t have one? Really? (Insert sarcasm here.) Well, we have found some cheap and relatively easy costumes you can make, just in time for the campus Halloween party.

These ideas are from Brit Morin:

A piñata – All it takes is some clever positioning of colorful crepe paper

Super Mario brothers – Overalls, a train hat and some felt

The old dude from the move UP – All you need are some nerd glasses, some balloons and a cardigan sweater. A bow tie helps, too.

A bag of jelly beans – Fill a clear garbage bag with balloons and affix the Jelly Belly logo.

Thing 1 and Thing 2 from Dr. Seuss – Red outfits and blue hair. It doesn’t get any simpler than that.

Good in the sack (you have to really see this one to get it.)

Here are some more ideas, courtesy of Kelly Armstrong, who wrote an article for her student newspaper:

Zombie — There are many tutorials on YouTube to show you how to do it. 

We found a crazy unzipped mouth tutorial that you gotta see:

Smartie pants – Use an old pair of pants and glue bags of Smarties to them.

Dice cube – Get a big box, spray paint it white, use a marker to color in some dots then cut holes in it for you head and limbs.

Toga – Who doesn’t have an extra bed sheet lying around?

A little white lie – Write on a piece of masking tape some of the things people lie about: “No, those pants don’t make your butt look big” or “This is my natural hair color.” Then tape all the lies to yourself.

If you try any of these costumes out, send us a photo.

Happy Halloween.
