DIY adult Halloween costumes are the best option if you like original costumes, but at the same time, you are looking for an easy, cheap, and fast costume.
I’m sharing with you some ideas, to make your own costume for adults at home, for men and women.
Personally, I have always made my costumes at home, as I always say, nice or not, but original and unique, I would mind spending sixty dollars on an original costume to get to a party and find someone with the same costume as mine…
Plus now we’re five in the family, so spend a minimum of thirty dollars per costume, to wear it only once… has no point, that’s my opinion.
You can make homemade costumes for the whole family, made with materials that we already have, or using old costumes. you can also make up like La Catrina, very fashionable among Latinos.
This time I share with you that of Cruella de Vil, the infamous Disney Villian. For this, I got a second-hand robe, of those that they use in the choirs. I added a white stuffed animal down, just like the dress, helping me with a silicone gun or hot glue, then I bought some white gloves and painted black spots with a permanent marker or sharpie.
For makeup use concealer as a base, I painted more arched eyebrows than mine, just like my lips, to give them a touch of mockery.
Mimo’s costume was easy, black trousers, red straps that he didn’t have, so we used a red ribbon attached to the trousers with silicone; Makeup is very easy, white shirt and you’re done!
Mumm-Ra or Munra as we knew it in Mexico, the villain of the Thundercats, the mummy demon, this one I loved, this easy to make, you only need bandages, red cape or a piece of red fabric, blue paint for the face, and latex to make your wrinkles. This is an original DIY adult Halloween costume wearing by my brother.
Football referee or árbitro as we called. You need black trousers, a black and white striped shirt maybe these would be the hardest thing, but you can still get a solid color like the ones they use now, don’t forget your red, yellow card and whistle of course; already if you want to disguise yourself as one of your favorites, like ChiquiMarco, because you make the hair entry like Dracula and you’re done!
One that I also loved and sure all Latinos will like, had to be the costume of El Chavo del Ocho! Look at the details, even the spring got, a khaki pants, suspenders or slats, the striped shirt that you can find in your house, perhaps the hardest thing to find would be the hat, finally topped with brown shoes and freckles.
Catwoman, this time we were two disguised the same. What I did, was wearing leather trousers, a blouse, and black boots. I no longer had time so I bought Catwoman accessories, the package includes googles, ears, and a mask.
You can make your own mask, with foam or felt, and for the ears, use a headband and silicone glue some felt ears, it’s easy, you just need some time.
And if you are looking for a family or group costume, a good idea is a homemade scarecrow costume for adults and children like the one in the first photo
