DIY Halloween Costumes [Steals]

DIY Halloween Costumes, Easy Costumes, Frida Kahlo Costume, Olive Oyl costume, Costume with closet items
It is that time of the year again, Halloween! And if you are like me and procrastinate until last minute! This post is for you! I used items I found in my closet to create these costumes! I bet you can do it too! If not, you can always go to your local thrift store and spend very little.


Last year I did not write a blog post but I dressed up as Damian from Mean Girls, see here: 2017 .
Past years I have done Lion, Pirate, a French girl, Madonna, Jeanie in a Bottle, Rocker, etc.. Here are the links to each year so you can have more options:  2016, 2015, 2014,

This year, I will show you two great options that I am pretty sure you will be able to create in a few hours.

OLIVE OYL
I've had this black skirt forever and I bought this top a few Christmas ago because we have a tradition of everyone wearing the same color, that year was red. But honestly, I never wore it again.
All you need for this costume are the following items:
- Dark Skirt (here are some Shein, Forever21, Romwe, H&M)
- Red Top/sweater (here are some Mango, Kohls, Zulily)
- White Collar top ( I used Doilies from the Dollar Store)
- Yellow Tape or a Ribbon (got yellow ribbon at the Dollar Store)
- Brown Booties (here are some TJMaxx, BlueflyDSW)

FRIDA KAHLO 
I love Frida Kahlo and I've been wanting to dress up like her for a while, but for one thing or another, it didn't happen. But finally, I had all the items necessary to look like her, see below.
- Embroidered Top/ Floral. A colorful Dress works too (Got my top when I visited Merida, Mexico and the skirt is thrifted for $1.99)
- Colorful Shawl
- Fake Flowers or real (My sister-in-law got this cute hair band from Target) Here are some in case you want to buy: Francesca's Kohls, Tilly's.
- Eyebrow makeup
- Big Earrings and Necklaces
