Well, it’s here. Halloween is right around the corner! Do you have your costume ready to go? Or did you think you had another week? Well if you’re not prepared, no need to fret, here at ShirtSpace we have some last-minute DIY costume ideas ready for you. 

Sandy and Danny From Grease

Sandy stole our hearts when she first appeared on-screen back in 1978, and has continued to do so ever since. To create her look, first start with some tightly curled locks, then grab the Bella+Canvas 7501 Ladies' Sponge Fleece or Bella+Canvas 8850 Ladies' Flowy Long-Sleeve Off Shoulder T-Shirt in black. We know this is not her traditional cap sleeve look; however, since this tee has a wide neck, it can be worn off the shoulder. Creating a fun look while keeping you warm, too. Finally, grab a pair of Bella+Canvas 812 leggings and a pair of red heels, and voilà, you’re Sandy! 

For the fellas, Danny from Grease is easy to tackle as well. Grab a classic Black tee, like the 3001C, jeans, white socks and Converse, and you two can now boogie down all night.

Next up, dress up as your favorite Thanksgiving dessert. The base of this costume is, of course, an orange shirt, we recommend the Bella+Canvas 3001C in the color “Autumn”. Next, find a pumpkin headband or beanie. Can’t find one? Then make one! Take a quick trip to the dollar store. Then grab a headband, a small (fake) pumpkin, and using a hot glue gun, combine the two into one. Finally, using a vinyl cutter or just some felt, cut out the Greek letter for “pi” and glue or adhere it to the shirt. There you are, now you can walk around as one of America’s most delicious treats.

If being a sweet treat is not in the cards for you, maybe think of being one of Halloween’s favorite characters, a Ghost. 

No, we are not telling you to break out a sheet and cut holes for the eyes. We have something even more simple in mind. Grab your favorite white t-shirt, let us recommend the Gildan G500, and black felt from your local craft or fabric store. Cut out two eyes and a mouth, adhere them using a hot glue gun. And just like that, you’re a ghost. Now, who are you going to haunt? 

Energizer Bunny

First, jump on ShirtSpace to grab a pink tee, sweatshirt or tank top. Next, we recommend finding your bunny ears and fluffy tail. Once satisfied, throw on your newly decorated tee, bunny ears, and go hop about until your battery is drained.
