Halloween Costume Ideas!

Posted on: October 24th, 2013

Are you still searching for the perfect costume? No worries, Goodwill can help! All it takes is a little searching and some creativity! Check out the Halloween costume ideas we pulled together below. All of the costume ideas came from our Halloween Ideas Pinterest board. You can follow us here!

Rosie the Riveter 


A chambray shirt and a red bandana are all you need to become Rosie the Riveter! Complete this iconic WWII era look with some red lipstick and black eyeliner. Roll up the sleeves and tie the bandana in your hair and you're all set!


Audrey Hepburn - Breakfast at Tiffany's 


Our stores are full of fun, girly finds to pull off this look. Here are two options for the little black dress. We paired it with a pair of silver and black ruffled heels, oversized black sunglasses and lots of beaded necklaces!

 

Tourist

 
A Hawaiian print shirt or dress, flip flops, beach bag, a big floppy hat and a camera case complete this costume!


Morton Salt Girl


One of the easiest ideas we pulled from Pinterest was a take on the Morton Salt Girl. You just need to add an umbrella and the container of salt to carry around and you're ready to go!


Katniss Everdeen - The Hunger Games


Transforming into Katniss is pretty easy, we found some great cargo pants, hiking boots and two different jacket options. Both jackets had hoods and lots of pockets. We added a plain black T-shirt and a cross body bag. Just French braid your hair and maybe add a bow and arrow set and you're ready for the Hunger Games!
 

Sandy from Grease


The last scene in Grease features Sandy in her black ensemble. Instead of the leather pants, we found some slim fit black pants with some sheen to them, paired with a tight black T-shirt with extra detail on the sleeves. We added a printed belt and two different "Sandy" inspired shoe options!

 

Mary Poppins


Who doesn't love Mary Poppins? A simple black skirt and white button down shirt start off this costume. We used a scarf for the red belt and a necklace to imitate Mary's red bow tie. All you need to add is an umbrella!

 

Top Gun


We found a great flight suit and boots that could be the great start of a "Top Gun" costume. Just add some patches and a pair of aviator sunglasses!

 

Just remember, when shopping for your Halloween costume, you don't have to break the bank. Goodwill can help you put together a very unique and inexpensive costume! Most of the clothing items featured in these costumes start at $2.99, with accessories starting at just 99 cents!
