Easy Halloween Costumes and Makeup

Kids anticipate Halloween every year. With pumpkin picking, costume wearing, and trick or treating to look forward to, what’s not to like? Adults enjoy fall and Halloween festivities as well. There is no need to spend a lot of money or to purchase any type of special effect items. There are many simple and fashionable costume ideas that you can create using normal items that you already own.

One easy to assemble idea is the cowboy/cowgirl costume. Put on your best leather boots, your favorite jeans, and a plaid shirt in flattering colors. Add a cowboy/cowgirl hat, some bright lipstick, and your friendliest smile, and you are set!

Another costume idea is to dress up as Mary Poppins. She is a very pretty and popular character. Be sure to pin your hair up, and to bring a parasol or umbrella from home. Wear a shirt that is either white, lacy, or satiny. Pair it with a skirt and white gloves. Also wear heals, fancy boots, or high heeled boots.

If you have a brown vest and boots, you may want to dress as a safari guide. You could bring binoculars, and wear hair and makeup as normal. If your children have a jungle breed of stuffed animal, bring that along as well.

Remember Pippi Longstocking? She is another costume idea that is easy to achieve with at home materials. Wear your hair in two braids. You can cut floral wire or a clothes hanger to achieve Pippi’s braids straight out to the side look. Apply fake freckles by using your eyebrow or eyeliner pencil. Match various patterns, such as wearing knee socks from two different sets, or pairing a jumper of one color with a striped shirt of two other colors. Smile, and have fun!

You could also create a Dorothy look. Wear white ankle socks with red shoes. Wear a white shirt with a blue skirt or jumper. Style your hair into two ponytails and tie ribbons around the base of the ponytails. Carry a basket.

Halloween is a festive time of year. There are plenty of tasteful and fun costume ideas for adults to create. Have a fantastic time creating your look and enjoying the season!
