3 Easy Costume Ideas

Every year when October rolls around I come up with so many ideas for what costume I should wear and I can’t decide, so I end up throwing something together last minute.

 

Pirate: 

Makeup- Heavy eyeshadow, lots of mascara, paired with a matte lip.

Outfit- I used a scarf from H&M and tied it to make a top. I paired it with boots from Rue21 and a black skirt. For accessories I wore a necklace made from coins, a double stud earring with a cuff from hot topic, and a silver hoop earring. Pirate Pics 1fullsizeoutput_93bfullsizeoutput_9ef

 

A Unicorn:

Makeup- I went for a natural look. A bit of foundation to even out my skin and a pink lip.

Outfit- I bought a unicorn horn off Amazon, but you can purchase one almost anywhere. I wore a white dress, a chocker that my grandma Linda gave me and candles. If you live somewhere cold a white jacket and jeans look just as cute. 3 costume ideashalloween costume 13 Costume Ideas UnicornHalloween coustume 1.jpgfullsizeoutput_9f0

 

The Night: This is the easiest costume, but be prepared to answer the question what are you dressed as the whole night.

Makeup- Smokey eye, black lip, and anti highlight.

Outfit- Just wear all black. I wore black leggings, a hoodie, and paired it with a pair of black boots.last minute halloween costumes

No-Carve Pumpkin Ideas

fullsizeoutput_72eCarving pumpkins has always been a big deal in my family. The older my siblings and I became the more intricate the designs became. Unfortunately I am allergic to pumpkins. As of early last year all my siblings have moved out, leaving no one to carve pumpkins, so I needed a new idea. I decided to do no-carve pumpkins; it was a way to still decorate pumpkins without it ending with hives. I basically just paint and glue stuff to pumpkins instead of carving them. I did this last year and I really liked how they turned out, so I decided to do it again this year.

 

The Confetti Pumpkin:

Supplies:

  1. Confetti
  2. White Paint
  3. Glue or Mod Podge
  4. A Pumpkin

Instructions:

  1. I painted all the pumpkins I bought white and let them dry overnight. It took two coats of paint.
  2. Glue the confetti to the pumpkin. Their is no real technique for this, but I found doing one layer, waiting for it to dry, then doing another layer of confetti worked the best.

Unicorn Pumpkin:

Supplies:

  1. Glue
  2. Glitter (two different colors)
  3. Hot Glue Gun
  4. White Paint
  5. Paper
  6. Black Acrylic Paint or Black Paint Marker
  7. Foam sheets, the color doesn’t matter
  8. Pink Jewels (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Paint your pumpkin white

2. Cut four triangles out of the foam sheets. Two big and two small, the size of them should depend on the size of your pumpkin. You will also need to cut out this weird sort of triangle shape from paper; it will be the horn. fullsizeoutput_72b

3. Cover the ears and horn in glitter. I made the big triangles gold and the smaller ones silver. fullsizeoutput_727

4. Once dry, glue the triangles together. Roll the horn and glue it using the hot glue.

5. Using hot glue attach the horn and ears to your pumpkin.

6. Using black paint or a paint marker, paint the eyes and mouth. fullsizeoutput_728

7. This step is optional, but I took some pink jewels and glued them on to give my unicorn rosie cheeks. fullsizeoutput_731fullsizeoutput_73a

 

Melting Silver Pumpkin:

All you need for this one is white paint, metallic paint, and a paint brush. Then just take your metallic paint and drip it down the sides of your pumpkin. Use the brush to paint the top of your pumpkin. This one is definitely the easiest. No-carve pumpkin ideasfullsizeoutput_737
