5 Last Minute DIY Halloween Costumes


Halloween is fast approaching; do you have your costume ready? Maybe you do and it’s beautifully elaborate. But you just added another night of Halloween gatherings to the list and you’re in need of a last-minute costume. VOA Thrift can help!

Check out our list of FIVE easy, last minute DIY Halloween costumes with VOA Thrift:

Mrs. Doubtfire – This is a comfy one! Grab a long, pleated skirt, cardigan sweater, and large glasses (bonus points if you can find or fashion an eye glass chain from a necklace).

Roman in a Toga – You can always find fabric, curtains, sheets, and large t-shirts that can be fashioned into a Roman-like getup! Tie it up with a belt or rope. Check out our shoe selection for gladiator-style sandals and/or boots to match.

Dobby the House Elf – This is probably the easiest costume on the list! Grab an oversized white t-shirt or sleeper shirt and tie at the shoulders. Just make sure you grab a book and a black sock because Dobby is a free elf ready to have a good time!

Pumpkin – Everyone loves pumpkins on Halloween! Mix and match items of your own: comfy pants, orange shirt, and a green headband, hat, or bandana. Extra credit if you turn your pumpkin into a jack-o-lantern with a sharpie!

Tourist on Vacation – Get dorky with this one! Start with the basics: High socks with sandals or sneakers, fanny pack, and a camera around your neck. There are all kinds of shirts, sweatshirts, and sweaters from go-to vacation destinations at VOA Thrift so you can rep your favorite spot.

If all else fails, grab every pink piece of clothing you can find, a blonde wig, and voila, you are Barbie!
