Cool + Original Halloween Costume Ideas!

The countdown has begun! It's exactly two weeks until Halloween so you know what that means- it's time to start planning those costumes. I'm gonna be straight up honest here, Halloween isn't my favourite time of the year. I don't particularly dislike it but I do always dread having to dress up. Costumes aren't really my thing. That's why I've compiled this list of some cool and original costume ideas. So if you're not the biggest fan of costumes, or you're just stuck for an idea this year then read on.

1. Pretty Little Liars

If you're an avid Pretty Little Liars watcher, this will be the perfect costume for you this year. The best way to achieve this is to gather up three of your friends and be the cast of the programme. Use the image above to inspire your outfits. All you really need is a little black dress and smear some dirt marks on your body. Voila! 

2. Skeleton

Okay maybe this isn't the most original idea ever but it can actually look really cool and cute. I love these skeleton leggings (€24.26 ASOS), paired with this cut out t-shirt (€14.15 ASOS). It's a perfect laid back costume that doesn't even look like costume! 

3. PiƱata

This idea is definitely super original! You're almost guaranteed no one else will be dressing up as this. You'll need a lot of crepe paper and time to do this one, as it's a DIY Project. Check out Camilla Styles tutorial here to create this costume! This is one of my personal favourites.

3. Minion (from Despicable Me)

If you feel like releasing you're inner child- this is the perfect costume! Definitely not the sexiest look but who cares, it's fun! MacBarbie07 on YouTube does a great tutorial (here) for this outfit. If you're not feeling in the mood to do it yourself you can also purchase a ready made costume here.

4. Miley Cyrus VMA's Bear Costume

When I found this costume idea on YouTube, I couldn't not add it to this list. Yes it's crazy, yes it's controversial but cool and original? Definitely. I personally wouldn't wear this but if you like turning heads, go for it! LikeWowLala on YouTube has the tutorial so check it out here. Amazon is also selling a ton of outfits to get the Miley look (you can even get a Robin Thicke costume!). Check them all out here.

5. Makeup

If you really dislike the idea of getting dressed up, just go for some crazy makeup. There are so many makeup looks out there, from corpse bride to gorey and bloody you'll find something that appeals to you. Just Google or YouTube search your desired look for hundreds of tutorials.

They're my ideas for Halloween this year. Will you be dressing up this year?
