DIY Witty Halloween Costumes

Halloween is one of my favourite holidays. Unfortunately, being in Australia means that it’s still not super popular. But it’s getting there! Every year, more and more people jump on the Halloween bandwagon, which being an avid costume-lover, makes me happy.

Watch our video for hilarious DIY costume ideas and see the instructions for each costume below  🙂

What you need:


  1. Secure the logo to the front of your playsuit with a safety pin.
  2. Tape Toms head to a ruler so you can wave the poor chap around.
  3. Pop your wings on and you’re ready to go!

Why we love this costume:

It’s super cute and playful. Every gal loves her some wings.

Salsa Emoji

Knitflix & Chill


If it’s chilly, this is a fantastic option while still being a great pun. Follow everything above, but swap the Crave You Dress for the On The Floor Knit Dress and you’ll be good to go!

One Night Stand


What you need:

  • Cardboard the size of a small table with flaps (you can cut a moving box)

  • White tablecloth
  • Double-sided tape and scissors
  • Skanky undies
  • Condom wrapper
  • Old fries
  • Water bottles
  • Beer cup
  • Coloured cardboard
  • Small feather boa


  1. Wear your day clothes. A white shirt works best as it blends in with the tablecloth.
  2. Create a cone shape with the coloured cardboard and paste the feather boa around the base.
  3. Draw a circle in the centre of the cardboard, cut  the rough size of your waist.
  4. Get in and have a friend do the next steps!
  5. Cut a similar hole in the table cloth and put over you and the cardboard table.
  6. Use tape to stick paraphernalia on the table.
  7. Pop the ‘lampshade’ on.

It’s one of the funniest costumes around. Everyone will want pics of you in this!
