If you know me, you know that I LOVE HALLOWEEN. I love coming up with costumes. For me, Halloween is another opportunity for self-expression; you can quite literally be anything you want to be.
For years I have been getting many of my costume pieces from Amazon, but this year I wanted to take that one step further. I wanted to create costumes based on finds from Amazon. Pieces that would ship in 2 days or less and wouldn’t cost me an arm and a leg because let’s face it- I may never wear them again. I didn’t want to take the easy way out and buy a costume on Amazon because there’s nothing worse (to me) than having the exact same costume as someone else, right out of the package.
Belle with Books
A very easy IRL version of my favorite Disney Princesses, Belle.
This costume consists of only 4 pieces. The total costume is under $75, and the most expensive piece was my shoes. If you already have black flats, the costume is under $50!
BEETLEJUICE, BEETLEJUICE, BEETLEJUICE
Well… a “glam” version at least.
I borrowed the wig from a friend, but I did link a similar wig for under $20 in this outfit. I also linked the ONLY eyeshadow palette I used for this look under the Halloween Link.
Go Grease Lightnin’
I did my own take on Sally from Grease. I bet most of you have many if not all of these items already in your closet! If you don’t, prime to the rescue!
Your greaser girl costume will cost you less than $45 and you can absolutely wear all of these pieces again and that’s pretty rad. I didn’t include a moto jacket in the pricing because there are so many to choose from (and I’ve had mine for years), but I did include one in the link.
“This is my costume. I’m a homicidal maniac. They look just like everyone else.”
This one-piece costume is as easy as it gets. You an wear tights and black flats with the outfit to complete the look head-to-toe.
Just a spoon full of sugar and a prime account is all you need to make this costume. **Tights, bag and gloves optional
Looking for something a bit more…. terrifying? Let me conjure up my Amazon Demon for you.
Last year, Becca and I were Demons and it was absolutely amazing to terrorize the streets and bars of Baltimore. The gold finger jewelry was spray-painted black and my contacts were prescription and purchased from HoneyColor.
ROSIE THE RIVETER
Want to be a badass babe? Look no further than Rosie: A two piece costume that stands the test of time, appropriate for work and a night out for Halloween. *Combat boots not necessary, but linked in my Halloween Marketplace Link.
If you’re in the need of a group costume, party animals might be just the thing. Pajamas in public? Yes please. While I didn’t create a breakdown of the costume, there has to be thousands of onesies to choose from, so get creative! Here is a panda, a lion and a dragon to get you started.
As a Baltimore native, I had to pay homage to my hometown with the Utz Girl Costume. I was actually the Utz girl a few years back for Halloween and got engaged!!
Quite possibly the best costume (for a number of reasons): comfy clothes, everyone knows and loves Waldo and it’s so fun to get into character.
