20 DIY Halloween Costumes We’re Totally In Love With This Year

Every year, Halloween just gets bigger and bigger. Maybe it’s the subtle pressure of social media that makes everyone want to outdo each other, or maybe it’s just because Halloween offers an endless amount of creativity. Regardless, this October is your time to shine, and we’ve got the most creative costumes to help you live your best life.

Above, who wouldn’t want to dress up as a greenhouse like this DIY costume from The House That Lars Built?

Hello, Wonderful has the 2017 update on Starbucks Frappuccino costumes with this DIY Unicorn Candy Milkshake ensemble, which can be scaled up for grown-ups. You can pay homage to the Unicorn Frappuccino by painting the “cup” with layers of color rather than swirls.

This one is too good, we had to feature it twice! Halloween is the one time of the year you can live your dream to be a one of San Francisco’s famous Painted Ladies — like this fabulous DIY costume above from Oh Happy Day.

Caitlin of The Merry Thought goes cute with her DIY Nesting Doll Costume. The main components are easy to assemble from your wardrobe (a scarf and a dress), though her apron is an Etsy purchase. However, Caitlin recommends simplifying with a vintage floral apron.

Your friends will heart this fun idea by Kara from A Kailo Chic Life. This costume is the wearable take on the Geronimo Balloon installations that became some of the most Instagrammed things of 2017.

A vintage sight made in costume form by StudioDIY: A pink flamingo! It’s all the cuter to pair with a tiny baby cactus.

Though that cactus was cute, we think the group would be complete with the DIY Manicured Lawn costume from The Glitter In My Tea. Get it?

If you prefer another pun option, look no further than Good Housekeeping‘s French Kiss costume.

Vanessa Diaz of Brite & Bubbly is really taking us back with her DIY Polly Pocket costume. And yes, to answer the question you’re thinking right now, it opens!

Vanessa also came up with the genius Rosé All Day costume, which comes complete with a flamingo straw.

While we’re on the subject of more 2017 beverage trends, here’s a group costume by Brit + Co centered around everyone’s favorite seltzer: La Croix. And not to ignore the guys, there is a La Croix Boy.

Brit+Co also gifted the world with a group GLOW costume, which will be a bit more unique than the Orange Is The New Black and Stranger Things costumes that’ll still be around this year. Find yourself a Sam Sylvia and a Bash, and it’ll be complete!

Got a lot of cardboard at your disposal? You have the building blocks of this family of robots by Sarah of Tell Love and Party.

If cats are your thing, you’re definitely going to want to grab your favorite bathrobe, pick up some yarn, and pull out all your old Beanie Babies (yes, we know you still have some…) and dress up as a crazy cat lady. See how with a tutorial from Oh Happy Day.

Studio DIY‘s school supplies family costume idea is pretty easy to replicate: If you can doodle on a shirt and fold paper into a hat, you can make it.

Baby-sized Peter Pans are always cute, so why not commit to a whole family costume based on the classic Disney movie? See how these adorable costumes were created at Lovely Indeed.

Though Homemade Mimi created this fun “Stranger Things” family costume last year, we’re betting the Netflix show will be inspiring a lot of group costumes this year.

Fun fact: The Care Bears are celebrating their 35th anniversary this year. Pay tribute to your childhood favorite with this family Care Bears costume from Suburban Wife City Life.

Though Max is represented in full-costume glory, Jordan of Love, Jordan kept it relatively simple for the rest of the family “Where The Wild Things Are” costume.

Tabitha Blue of Fresh Mommy Blog went with a full (and relatively easy) family circus halloween costume. It’s a great idea if you’re going with a lot of family, since you can just keep adding themed costumes to the mix.
