Halloween Costumes from Your Wardrobe
Take a look at what you have in your wardrobe before ordering online or making a trip to the mall to buy a costume.
Making use of what you have in your wardrobe can save you money for a costume that you will use only once.
3 Things To Do In Coming Up With a Costume
Here are 3 things that you can do to come up with a fun and creative costume for Halloween.
1. Surf through the internet for a character.
Make your research in Google images for cartoon or movie characters. Find one that strikes you.
2. Determine the outstanding color/s of the character.
Look at the photo of the character. What colors stand out?
Once you have determined the colors that stand out, then you can open your wardrobe search for these colors.
For example, the color that obviously stands out in the character of Blobby of Hotel Transylvania, is neon green. Search for neon green dresses or top and bottom in your wardrobe.
3. List down the accessories of the character.
Check out the accessories that complete the character. For example, Blobby sports a black headphone and big black shades. Look for these items in your wardrobe.
Remember, you can improvise like coloring an old pair of white shades black.
