Top Halloween Costume Ideas

Gone are the days where it was easy to to go to Big W, buy a white table cloth and cut out two eye holes and become a ghost for Halloween. From matching couple costumes to the latest movie characters, people dressing up for Halloween are looking outside the box this year.

Here are the top creative Halloween costumes ideas:

Harley Quinn

After behind-the-scene shots of one of the most anticipated movies, The Suicid Squad, we’re thinking there will be many Harley Quinn look-a-likes roaming the streets this year. As an added bonus it’s not a terribly hard costume to put together with some hair chalk, shorts, a baseball top and make up for special effects.

halloween-decorations-diy-airtasker

Pumpkin carving can get mighty messy so why not showoff your painting skills instead. Perhaps you could even get guests to BYO their own creations and have a prize for the best looking pumpkin.

Mummify recycled jars with bandaging and craft store purchased googly eyes. Just don’t forget to add the tea light candles and light when it gets darker.

If you need a helping hand there are thousands of Airtaskers ready to help you out.

You can stick these glowing balloons all throughout the house, even in some cupboards for an extra scare. Just crack a glow stick and place into a blown up balloon.

6. Pumpkin cooler

At the end of the day it’s still a party and drinks need to remain cold at all times. Staying with the theme, crave out the inside of a pumpkin and place in a glass bowl with ice.

7. Classy garland

It doesn’t have to be all fake blood and pumpkins – use colours orange, black and white in new original ways. To make this garland just buy different bits of ribbon (even ask for offcuts to save money) and away you go.

8. Bloody candle

Who are we kidding, it’s the one time of the year where it’s blood-themed decorations are acceptable. This is simple to recreate by melting red candle wax onto a white candle.

9. Scary bottles

Another chance to get out the paint brush and convert wine bottles into works of halloween art.
