For this costume, all you will need is 50 gray paint samples, a gray t-shirt and some tape or glue. Could this be any simpler? Just tape or glue the paint samples onto the t-shirt in any way you want and voila! Your costume is done.

You will surely hit the ball out of the park with this costume. Throw on your jersey of choice, grab a ball or other equipment that fits that sport and you are good to go. Even if you don’t have a jersey, you can still use any shirt or sweatshirt that has a sports team name on it.

Bubble Gum

This costume idea will blow everyone away. You will be so popular with your friends for giving them sweet-smelling breath. For this costume, you will need a pink t-shirt, pink balloons, bubblegum and some iron-on letters. The letters on the shirt are optional, but if you do decide to use them, you can write anything you want that relates to bubble gum. Once your t-shirt looks the way you desire, start to glue the balloons to it, grab your gum and you are set.

Yoga Enthusiast

You will be the most comfortable person at the party with this yoga costume. Graphic tees with yoga slogans on them have become very popular, so it shouldn’t be too hard to find one. If you can’t get one, just wear any tank top or, better yet: iron on your own saying. Besides the tank, you will just need some yoga pants (leggings work fine) and a yoga mat.

If you are still struggling to find a costume you like, head to Target or a local Halloween store. Either place will have tons of different costumes to choose from.

Don’t forget to be safe and have lots of skele-fun this Halloween.
