3 Quick & Cheap Halloween Costume Ideas

Hey guys,
I am not the biggest lover of dressing up for Halloween however I have rounded up outfits or costume ideas that you could make if you are on a tight budget or you don't like dressing up.
 These outfits are made up with things you may already have in your wardrobe
Hope you enjoy x
 
 
 
 

Outfit 1// Gothic Alice In Wonderland
This outfit you may not have all the items you will need but they are super easy to get
hold of. To represent Alice's dress you will need a blue skirt like this one from newlook.
Alice always has a pinny on her dress, you may need to buy this- which you can do from Amazon or eBay. To make outfit more gothic add a band t-shirt of your choice ( it looks really good if it is black)
For footwear you could wear some heels but if you are going trick or treating you may want to keep it simple and be comfortable by wearing black converse ( or any black daps)
For added extras; stripy black tights look really cool (you can buy these from pound land or fancy dress shops), I chose to add this headband from Claire's and a black Lipstick will make you look even more gothic.
 

 
Outfit 2// 1950's school Girl
This outfit Is one for people who hate dressing up. All these things you should have in your wardrobe. layer up a jumper ( I chose a grey one from Topshop to represent a school uniform) and a white blouse with the collar popping out. Tuck the jumper in to a midi length skirt.
I found these adorable brogues in light pink, to keep with the girly theme. You could use your school schools or dolly shoes. Finally add a satchel, as everyone had a satchel in the 1950's.
You could Google 1950's hairstyles and add a cute hair band for added extras.
 
 

Outfit 3// Wednesday Addams
This is my favourite outfit. I love the Addams family, if you haven't watched it, you must!
This outfit is also the simplest. All you need is a black shirt with a collar and a black dress or skirt, pair it with some black shoes of your choice ( I chose boots) and your outfit is done!  all items in this outfit are from H&M. You will of course need to plait your hair in to two plaits. If you don't have black or brown hair you could buy wash out black hair dye to make yourself look even more like her.
