DIY Halloween Costume 2017

Need a last minute costume idea??

These Grannies take the cake!

It is an easy DIY costume that you can complete with most things from your home!

Not to mention the amount of laughter all night long…

For the hair…

If you can find/borrow a cheap wig, that is the easiest way!

However, you can definitely get a granny effect from some rollers around the house and white color hair spray (we lucked out at Goodwill)! You can also use some of the white spray to lighten the eyebrows.

For the makeup…

The makeup is super simple! Draw a few squiggly “wrinkles” on the forehead and around the smile creases, blend them with a lighter foundation or powder, & slap on a red lip! Viola!

For the glasses…

We found some Lost and Found readers at my job & cut some Mardi Gras beads from the Dollar Tree and tied them to the edges of the frames.

For the outfit…

We found dresses in the girls’ closet, white Keds ($5 @ Walmart), frilly socks, and a belt. This is really quite easy to muster up in the closet.

For the voluptuous lady parts…

Lili is basically a genious.. she took some stockings and stuffed socks into each leg portion and the wrapped it around the girls’ neck to create the tatas 😉

And for the hilarious rump, she put some bloomers on the girls and stuffed them with tshirts (one for each cheek, hehe)

For the Accessories…

For the “cane” we used some toy golf clubs and for the trick or treat bag a couple of the 1 million canvas bags we had around the house!

All in all, this is probably the most hilarious things we’ve ever done. You will not regret all of the laughter at the end of these costumes!

How To: DIY Last Minute Halloween Costume

Are you like a lot of us and Halloween sneaks up on you before you know it?

Not to fear..

With a couple items laying around the house, a dash of creativity & a BFF you can essentially rule the world! …and also throw together an adorable Halloween costume!

Check out our Nerdy Scientists..

 THE OUTFIT

Seriously, you couldn’t get any easier than some skinnies and a long sleeve T!

THE ACCESSORIES

 Go to your craft basket / closet / room and grab those spools of ribbon you bought at Micheal’s three years ago that you couldn’t live without & do not tell me I am the only one..

If you don’t have your own Lili, you may have to Youtube a bow tie & how to make suspenders. But seriously, all it takes is some safety pins & glue dots!

Those glasses I bought at Goodwill last year for some reason and here they are, the sole inspiration behind these adorable costumes!

THE SCIENCE LAB

All those vases you have tucked in every nook and cranny, that you thought you’d one day use, but haven’t looked at in years.. Well TODAY is the DAY! Bust those bad boys out… fill them with water (to your level of desired mess) and drop and couple drops of food coloring in them… BAM! Beakers and Flasks! Add a couple syringes you get everytime your little cutie gets “bubble gum medicine” and you have a full blow science lab!

**Now of course, I wouldn’t have food coloring.. So we used Jello packets, cake decorating beads, Valentina hot sauce, and anything else we could find in the kitchen. At least I’m happy to report it didn’t phase the girls at all…**

I don’t think Lili and I were prepared for the amount of cuteness this was going to create.  So I’m just going to leave this right here…

Viola! NERDY SCIENTISTS!

Hey Gap called, they want their child models back…

But seriously, all of these things were just around my house. I can only imagine what we could have come up with had we been at Lili’s house. If I have it, so do you!

We don’t even mind if you copy us!

All our love,

The Adventurers
