First, grab an orange T-Shirt or sweater. Second, take some black material and then draw and cut out the shape of a pumpkin face. Last, but not least, stick the face onto the orange T-Shirt by using sticky back tape.

Buy 2 plastic domes, attach them together and cut out their top and bottom so that they can fit around your body. After that, cut and glue mirrored material so that the ball gets shiny. Finally, complete your outfit by choosing appropriate shoes, gloves, tights, pants, etc.

#3. Rain and Storm Cloud Costume

If you are fed up with famous Halloween characters, then give this costume idea a try.
Use polyester stuffing to turn your head into a rain cloud. Then add hanging battery-powered LED lights so that you achieve a “lightning” effect. Last, but not least, you can put on a grey draped dress so that your body looks like pouring rain.

#4. Emoji Costume

Emoji costumes are quite simple and cheap. However, this does not mean that they are not impressive. The necessary materials include plastic platters, felt and glue.

You can use one platter for the front of the costume or make it sandwich board style. Cut some yellow felt and wrap it around the front of the platter. Then choose an emoji face, cut and glue the necessary shapes from other felt colors. Finally, add a strap to go around the neck or attach 2 straps to go over the shoulders.

#5. Lion Costume

Our last suggestion is inspired by The Lion King. If you and your kid like this evergreen Disney movie, then this might be the right costume for you. The only materials you need are a yellow shirt, fluffy yarn, brown eyeliner and scissors. Put on the T-Shirt. Then turn the yarn into a fluffy lion’s mane and paint a lion face.
