5 Easy Costumes to Save You Money and Time!

Bag of Jelly Beans
This bag of jelly beans costume must be the sweetest one of the bunch!

What you need to do: Get a clear trash bag, cut holes for your arms and legs to fit through. Print the nutritional facts on the back of the costume, just like what you see on the backs of candy bags. Fill up the bag with colored balloons for the jellybeans, and tie up the trash bag near your neck with a ribbon.


Bath Puff

A bath puff costume is sure to be one of the most creative costumes of the night! And you can make it yourself to boot. 

What you need to do: Buy some tulle from a fabric store, and bunch it up to pin or sew on an outfit. You can choose to wear a tube dress, tank top and shorts, or leggings and t-shirts underneath.


Audrey Hepburn

You can't go wrong with Audrey Hepburn's character in the classic Breakfast at Tiffany's.

What you need to do: Get a little black dress, black gloves, a cigarette holder, a tiny tiara, a pearl necklace, and black heels.


Derek Zoolander

Perfect your blue steel pout, and you're already halfway there. 

What you need to do: Get a patterned headband, blue eyes (or contact lenses), and an arresting gaze. Dark eyeshadow and purple lips preferred.


Silent Film Stars

This black-and-white film star costume might be perfect for those who think silence is golden. 

What you need to do: Get black attire, white body and face paint, and black lipstick and eyeshadow. Use the black eyeshadow as blush. You might want to choose an outfit that resembles something from the 1930s to 1960s when black-and-white films were popular.
