DIY College Halloween Costumes

Halloween in college is always fun because no one really knows what they want to dress up as until maybe a day before and no one really wants to spend much money on costumes. Personally I would rather not spend $40+ on a costume that comes from a bag and barely covers your body, or a combination of duct tape and body paint. It's usually pretty cold on Halloween! And I just personally like to stay covered. But if that's what you like to do, you do you. Here are just some fun DIY costume ideas that don't require buying a lot and are easy to put together with friends!
 
Beanie Babies
You just need animal ears/hat, make a TY tag and wear colors that go with the animal you're dressed as!

Hannah and I did this our freshman year

Pretty Little Liars
All you need is a black dress, and a red A for added effect!

And if you happen to all have red coats, that looks great too!

We did this last year, you can't really tell, but we had name tags with a red A and the name of the "liar" we were dressed up as. In this picture, we were Hanna, Spencer, and Aria

Toddlers and Tiaras
You just need white t shirts, little tutus (I think we got them for $3 at Hot Topic last year), tiaras (also very cheap) and we made sashes out of wide white ribbon, and you could also wear leggings and add a pacifier. I've also seen this done with ruffle socks and Mary Jane shoes which looks adorable!
Toddlers and Tiaras costumes. Too funny... Definitely next costume!

Hannah and I did this last year as well

Tiffany and Co. Box
This could be done either by making the dress as demonstrated here, or putting a white ribbon around a turquoise dress and a white bow in your hair could be added as well!

Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's
All you need is a black dress, big sunglasses, a small tiara, black gloves, heels, and an optional cigarette holder

Flapper 
Or Daisy from The Great Gatsby, whatever you want. Basically all you just need a sparkly or fringed dress, lots of pearls or gems and a headband around your head

(from Sarah Vicker's blog, actually a summer party, but too perfect not to include!)

Greek Goddess
Just make a sheet toga like for a toga party, plus gold accessories and shoes!

Happy Halloween, Thanks for reading!
