  • 20 Easy Halloween Costumes For All Ages

So you’ve been invited to a Halloween party? That is awesome – who doesn’t like dress ups right?!

Kids and adults alike can have a heap of fun organising and dressing up in their costumes. The only thing is the party is this weekend and you’ve forgotten all about actually buying that slutty zombie nurse costume that you’ve had your eye on for weeks now.

What the hell are you going to do now? Time for a little creativity! You’re not creative at all I hear you say? Well, you can thank me later because I have put together a list of 20 easy peasy lemon squeezy Halloween costumes that you can make yourself at short notice that are perfect for the creatively challenged amongst us (like myself!).

Halloween costumes don’t always have to be ghoulish, sometimes, it’s fun to just ‘have fun’ and be a little silly and left of centre with your costume, too.

 

Lets get started with ideas that will work for kids and adults!

1) A Bag of Jelly beans

Bag of water balloons, large clear plastic bag or clear plastic sheet, some tape and viola! — jellybeans a plenty. This costume is also very handy if you maybe have a little too much wine and lose your balance — built-in air bags! Safety first!

2) Pop art girl/guy

3) Medusa
