Last Minute DIY Halloween Costumes


Halloween is this weekend! And, this past weekend I was getting a little worried I wouldn’t find a costume!..

Okay, very worried! I even started texting my girl friends to see what they were coming up with, or if they were going to spend a million dollars buying a new costume.

Since I DIY’d a costume last year I knew that I wanted to continue doing this every year.

I found this adorable Mickey Mouse sweater at a thrift shop nearby! “I should be Mickey Mouse this weekend!!” So yes this $4 investment was my inspiration for my costume:)

I had a lot of fun putting this costume together! It was simple, very inexpensive, and turned out really cute, and accurate to the legends real outfit!

I thought it would be cute to have a yellow pair of shoes with the black ears for Mickey Mouse. I added red heels, with the classic polka dot headband as an option just in case one night I wanted to be Minnie Mouse.
