Unusual Halloween Costume Ideas
In case anyone needs inspiration, here are pictures of some original Halloween costumes I’ve worn over the years. I am also posting a few worn by my children and husband – just the homemade ones. Enjoy!
I styled my hair and sprayed it gold, then painted my face.
Painting your face is a great way to make an ordinary costume extraordinary!
I’m wearing a vintage dress and braided my hair the night before to get the kinks. Then we put on white face paint and a little fake blood. Notice how I forgot to paint my ear and my husband forgot his hand!

The piggy costume was made from a pattern by McCall’s: “Easy McCall’s M5956 Kids”
The Grim Reaper made scarier with a painted face..
Perseus and Medusa! I cut and “shaped” a Halloween wig and used rubber bands and clips to attach the plastic snakes. My husband’s costume was store bought.
