Halloween is just ONE WEEK away. And if you’re anything like me, you’ve either been prepping your costume for a month or you’re scrambling to put something together for the parties this weekend.

I’ll be spending my Halloween in Disney World… bet you can’t guess which princess I’m going to be! But in all seriousness, sometimes the best Halloween costumes are those that you can create right at home.

3 Essential Tips for Creating your DIY Halloween Costume:

  1. Think about who you look like. For me: Ariel, Donna Pinciotti, Ginny Weasley, Sally (Nightmare Before Christmas), Emma Stone, and Daphne from Scooby Doo were all people I thought of.

  2. Use Pinterest then head to your closet. Search DIY costumes on Pinterest and then head to the closet. I’m certain you’ll find you have more than you think.

  3. Makeup is critical. With most DIY costumes, makeup can be the most important step. Hop on YouTube or contact your talented friends to help your look come to life.
