Are you one of those people who loves to dress up for Halloween, but you don't want to look like you opened up a packaged costume and threw it on? I completely envy those people who have the uber creative gene, and can create the most amazing looks out of random pieces. That's not me. I need a little creative help.
I've found some really fun ideas online that you can create from your thrifty Goodwill finds. And you can brag a little bit and tell people you made it yourself! Check out these looks that I found at Goodwill of Central Indiana! Thank you for sharing your photos!
To create the Alient Tourist look, they have found a Skin Suit. If you can't find a green skin suit, apply some green face make-up, a long-sleeve green shirt, green gardening or knit gloves, green leggings, and green tube socks (or dye a pair of white tube socks green). Add a floppy sun hat, sunglasses, a Hawaiin shirt, camera, khaki cargo shorts or pants, and sandals, and Voila!
To create this look, all you need is a blonde long wig, a leather/pleather vest, suede skirt (distress the edges with a pair of scissors to give it a rugged look), brown leggings and your comfy boots. Complete the look with a toy dragon.
What a fun look! Look for a fun little shift dress in dark or earthy tones, with some lace or ruffles. Layer that over stripes.... Striped tights. A striped blouse. Add a chunky bracelet, some goggles (spray paint the rims of a pair of swim goggles with metalic spray paint to create your own), pull on a pair of chunky booties, and top it with a curly wig.
