DIY Halloween

 Happy early Halloween, guys! I decided to throw together a few DIY Halloween costumes that are pretty easy to assemble last minute. First, a black cat! No need to get flashy! If you've got a black outfit, you can easily put some pipe cleaners on a headband and use some tights as a tail! This one's easy because you can customize it... use a dress or pants or whatever you have!
 Second, do you guys remember Madeline? From the children's book? This was going to be my costume this year, until I realized that I dress like this everyday. Hah.
Anyway, all you need is a blue dress, a red tie, and a yellow hat. Slap a ribbon on that thing and you're set!

This last one is my actual costume. I'm a ladybug! For this, I just taped a bunch of black circles to a red coat and threw it over my cat costume. Swap out your cat ears for antennae, and it's a go.
Hope it gave you guys some ideas!


  1. These are so cute! I love that you dress like Madeline on the daily. I am going to be catwoman (with my bat-suit clad bf of course) and I bought a black catsuit but was planning on making my own ears/ headpiece! Definitely may steal the pipe cleaner idea, thanks!

    1. That sounds super cute! My boyfriend's gonna be Captain Kirk. Not so much in theme, but it'll be fun anyway!

  2. These are all so cute! I really love the Madeline costume, it's such an original idea. I'm your newest follower on GFC and bloglovin', follow back?
