Halloween is right around the corner and I still have no idea what I want to dress up as. I've been doing a ton of searching around on Pinterest and Instagram and have been debating on making my own DIY costume and makeup as well. This year I want to be something very creative, but also affordable and comfortable as well.
The past couple years I have been dressing up as Princess Jasmine for Aladdin and although I would love to wear that costume again, I am opting out for something different and more creative and thought out.
Below are 5 DIY costumes that I am currently thinking about being and how each costume can be made.

1. Glam Skeleton
I've been dabbling with the idea of being a skeleton for a while. I am shooting for a glow in the dark skeleton costume, along with an awesome long-haired white wig with scary neon makeup so I glow in the dark. I've never done anything crazy makeup wise during Halloween, so I think this is the year I want to go all out and do so.
2. Rosie The Riveter
This costume is pretty easy as it is basically just a tied up blue button up t-shirt with your hair up, along with a red bandanna wrapped around your hair. This costume also calls for some daring red lipstick, which is my favorite color lipstick to wear! I love what Rosie The Riveter represents and I'd feel like a total badass all night.
3. Comic Character
I've been seeing a lot of awesome comic makeup on Pinterest and Instagram and have been totally inspired to pump out some crazy makeup Halloween night.
4. Master Chief
Ideally, I would like to make a Master Chief costume out since buying a good quality costume can range from upwards to $800 on most Halloween costume sites. I've seen plenty of people make DIY Master Chief costumes all out of boxes, but I'm not sure if I'm creative enough to make something like this on such short notice. I would also want to get the energy sword that the Covenant uses throughout the game. (If you're a Halo nerd like me, you know what I am talking about).
5. Call of Duty Character
This would be somewhat easy to make, as my character I made online is basically wearing SWAT and military gear. I would be wearing quite a lot of clothing though if I decided to go all out and dress up the exact same as my character looks on COD. This costume would most likely be the most expensive, as I would also want play guns and other toys holstered around me.
What are you being for Halloween this year?
