Forget forking over a fortune for a sexy costume for Halloween that you’ll never wear again. That’s also not to mention that these typical costumes for women – the sexy cop, the dirty nurse, the dead cheerleader – are so overdone; it’s time for something new!
And what better place to start looking for your Halloween costume than within your own wardrobe? Here are some of the best DIY costumes that you already have in your closet.
Instead of glam you want gore and instead of sexy you want scary. You’re not the type of girl who wants to look like everyone else at the Halloween party. Good for you. Let’s bring back the true meaning of Halloween – fear – and who doesn’t fear a zombie?
Now, you may want to work with some old clothes that you plan on retiring after this season because zombies are rarely clean. They’re wearing ripped clothes with blood splatters and nastiness all over the place. The good news is that zombies can wear whatever they want.
