A squid costume will look very scary and is very creative. Not a lot of people decide to be a squid so you will look very original. Use a double layer of fabric and stuff it with cotton or wool. Sew pieces of fabric around the body for the tentacles.
1. Aang (Avatar)

If you’re looking for a cool, easy and cheap costume to make, choose the mummy!
Wrap yourself in toilet paper and use mud to look old and dusty. Remember to leave
air holes at the eyes, nose and mouth and wear brown clothes underneath. You’re
ready to go!
5. Deformed Alien
This deformed alien costume is very creative and versatile. There are many different ways to make this costume
fit anyone’s unique
preferences. First, stuff your clothes with paper or cloth to make one side bigger than the other. It is best to wear one shirt size and pants bigger. Next, wear one shoe bigger than the other. Then, carry two different toy guns – water guns work well!
The hunchback costume is easy to make and fun to do. It is a hilarious costume because it looks ridiculous. When making it, use a brown shirt and stuff the back with paper or cloth. It is usually worn with dull looking colours such as grey, brown, black or red. These colours are used for a peasant look as the character is always portrayed as a poor street urchin.
This flower costume has a very simple concept. Anybody can be a flower - even adults! When making it, use yellow silk or cotton around your head. For the body, you need to wear green clothing as the stem and leaves. Petals for your arms can be any colour that you desire.
Zombies are always
looking freaky and
are another easy to make costume choice. Wear any clothing you want and dust yourself with dirt. Use red paint for the blood effect and don’t forget to walk funny!
It’s a Halloween classic
- the vampire is a scary
costume that is also easy
to make. Use a black bed
sheet as your cape and
wear a white dress shirt
and black pants. Use red
paint to give the effect
of blood and buy a set of
vampire fangs from a
local costume shop, thrift
shop or dollar store.
This ghost costume is the easiest to make. You usually need a long, white
sheet like a bed sheet or blanket. Make sure you cut holes for the eyes. Also, use white powder on the whole
body for a ghostly appearance!
The robot costume is a very fascinating
invention. It is strong, powerful and
smart. A lot of boxes and tubes will be
used for the body. Glue an old keyboard
and black glass on the body part of the
box. Make sure to use a lot of glitter
for buttons. The glitter can also be
used to make the armor shiny.
