Halloween is coming and if you haven’t already got your costume sorted then you probably need to start thinking about it now. We touched on some really creative costumes but what about simple ones? We’ve got some great ideas for costumes that don’t take too much effort at all.
Dress yourself all in black and get your hands on some cat ears. These are easy to find in clothing stores as well as in your local fancy dress shop. Go for glittery one, furry ones, or simple diamanté ears work too.
Can’t get your hands on ears? Twist your hair up into two buns on top of your head (Miley-style) for makeshift cat ears.
You could also fashion yourself a tail out of stuff you have lying around at home. Cut one leg off a pair of opaque black tights then stuff it with socks or newspaper. Clip this to the back of your skirt or trousers for an instant tail.
Eyeliner works fine for whiskers and a little black nose.
Or you could go for brown jeans, over-the-knee boots and a corset. Wear with a long jacket and whatever pirate accessories you can find in your nearest supermarket.
Maybe carry a plastic bag of blue popping candy around with you too.
Plastic fangs can be found in beauty stores, supermarkets and from fashion retailers.
