- A black T-shirt, jeans and sneakers can be transformed into a knight in shining armor by adding a belt with pouches, a helmet and some gloves or gauntlets.
- A white button-down shirt can be turned into a doctor’s coat with the addition of medical equipment like stethoscopes and syringes.
- A pair of pajama bottoms or sweatpants makes an ideal superhero costume if you add some colorful accessories like capes and masks or other accessories like capes, masks or belts with pouches for storing tools or weapons.
Costumes are great for Halloween, but some of us don’t have the time or money to make a whole new wardrobe for one night.
If you’re looking for an easy costume with normal clothes, here are a few ideas:
Bandages and gauze
This is a fun one to do with your friends. Just wrap each other up in bandages, and then add in some fake blood and wounds to make it more realistic.
All you need is boots and a cowboy hat (or cowgirl hat), depending on which one you want to be!
Wear a swimsuit under an overcoat or jacket, then take off the coat when people ask what your costume is.
A lot of people love Halloween but don’t have the time, money or skill to create elaborate costumes. Here are some ideas that can be pulled together with a little creativity and very little cost.
Clowns may be scary, but they’re not complicated. All you need is some makeup, a wig and some red clothes (or just wear your regular clothes). You can also use face paint to add extra detail if you want it to look extra creepy.
Zombies are another common choice for those who don’t want to spend much on their costume. All you need is some fake blood and torn clothes (or just wear your regular clothes). If you want to go all out, you can get a cheap mask at any hardware store or costume shop.
You could easily put together an animal costume by wearing normal clothes and putting on ears or horns from around the house (or just wear your regular clothes). If you really want to go all out, you could make yourself look like an animal by using makeup or even body paint!
If you’re planning to dress up for Halloween but don’t want to spend a lot of time or money on your costume, here are some ideas for simple costumes that can be made with normal clothes.
- The Incredible Hulk: Grab a green t-shirt and pair it with jeans and sneakers. Add a brown wig, sunglasses and a foam muscle suit (available at most party supply stores), and you’re done!
- A Dinosaur: Pair a long-sleeved shirt with jeans or shorts, then stuff some pillows in your pants. Put on a fake tail and horns and you’ve got yourself a dinosaur!
- A Character From Your Favorite Movie: If you love Star Wars, The Wizard of Oz or any other movie where characters wear costumes, try dressing up as one of them by putting on an outfit similar to what they wore in the movie. For example, if you’re going as Darth Vader from Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope (1977), grab a black robe and put on black gloves and boots to complete the look!
- A Cartoon Character: If you have lots of hair that’s the same color as your favorite cartoon character’s hair, ask someone if they can help pull it back into pigtails or
This year’s costume is easy, but you may be surprised at how much it still impresses. Let’s face it, most of us are not going to be able to pull off a full-on costume this year. We don’t have the time or money to do something that elaborate. We need an easy costume that can be pulled together quickly and cheaply.
Best Easy Costumes With Normal Clothes
Here are some ideas for costumes that can be made using normal clothes you already own:
- Animal ears and nose: If you have a pair of animal ears like those pictured here, then all you need to do is put them on your head and add a pair of animal nose clips to complete the look. If you don’t have any animal ears, go ahead and cut out two large circles from colored construction paper (make them big enough so they cover most of your head) and use a glue stick to attach them to your headband or hat. Be sure to cut out holes for your eyes so that people can see them!
- Superheroes: Everyone loves superheroes! Get some old tights or leggings and draw on muscles with marker or paint (if you want to go really crazy with this one). You could also find some superhero masks online or at party stores if
