Quick and Creative Halloween Costume Ideas
The pile of Halloween party invitations sitting on your desk doesn't have to be sinister–there are plenty of simple costume ideas that will make your evening easy and eerily inexpensive!
Next time you receive a Halloween party invitation from a close friend in the mail, consider dressing up like the party's host for a funny, unexpected twist–often all you need is a wig, a distinctive outfit and a good sense of humor!
Also, if you are as paper-obsessed as everyone here at Tiny Prints, you can use old Halloween party invitations and other social stationery to make your costume. Use a copy machine to enlarge the Halloween invitation itself and wear it like a big sign, telling everyone that you are the "prints" or "prints-ess" of the party. Or you could just stick Halloween invites all over your body and tell everyone you are a deck of cards!
When a Halloween party invitation encourages you to bring a guest, it's a golden opportunity to don devilishly delightful duo costumes. Depending on the tone of the event set by the Halloween invitation, you and your date can dress up like easily recognizable celebs, literary characters or household items. Salt and pepper are popular choices, as are the signature looks of celebrity pairings like Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes. If the Halloween party invitation sets a more playful tone, women can channel their inner fairy tale princesses by dressing up like Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty, and men can go with characters like Bert and Ernie or Bart Simpson and Milhouse.
No matter what creative costume you choose, a little imagination and a lot of style will surely make this one happening Halloween!
