‘Tis the season for gourds, ghouls, and grande pumpkin spice lattes…but the spookiest part of fall is being without a costume on Halloween! Check out our round-up of DIY costumes, and get some ideas on how to recycle any cardboard or boxes you’ve got around the house. With a little imagination you can put your own personality into these costumes, or maybe this post will inspire a unique idea for your ensemble this year!


For the Monsters:

If you don’t want to deal with sticky face paints, or fake blood and false teeth, take a look at these monster-themed costumes.


Cartoon Kiddos:

This is the one night a year that we’re allowed to step away from reality, so get creative and embrace the nonsense!


Animal Lover:

If you’ve got a wild child, or you just love creatures of all kinds, see if you can execute one of these animal DIY costumes.


For the Big Kids:

Don’t worry, we didn’t forget about the kids on the inside- here’s some ideas for adults too! Try putting your own spin on any one of the costumes from this post, and have fun handing out candy, having personal space at a party, and trick-or-treating this Halloween!


Whatever your plans for this holiday, please remember to be safe while out and about at night! Bonus points to you if you incorporate glow sticks, battery-pack LED lights, or glow-in-the-dark paint in your DIY Halloween costume this year.

We want to see what you come up with! Post your creations to social media, and tag or share with Sorensen Moving & Storage. Let the crafting begin!
