This Halloween, show everybody that you’ve paying attention to what’s big in 2016. DIY a Halloween costume inspired by your favorite classics that were brought back into the spotlight this year!
Sandy Or Danny
Grease is America’s favorite musical—and it made a big reappearance in 2016 with Fox’s Grease Live! Dressing up as Danny Zuko or Sandy Olsson is super easy. You probably have everything you need already! Just wear a black t-shirt and pants. If you’re going as Danny, slick back your hair. If you’re going as Sandy, big curly hair and red shoes will complete the look.
This year was a big one for Ghostbusters, with a new (and hilarious) movie featuring an all-star cast that revived the classic movie’s popularity. Whether you’re a girl or a guy, all you need to bust this Halloween’s spookiest ghosts is a neutral jumpsuit (or a tan button-down), some orange duct tape, and a backpack with some vacuum attachments for sucking up ghosts. To finish off the look wear your favorite combat boots and add a Ghostbusters patch or pin!
Dory Or Nemo
Finding Dory is a pretty big deal. Honor your favorite marine dwellers by dressing up like them. Make your Dory costume by wearing all blue. Create a yellow fin with some cardboard and elastic straps you can wear over your shoulders. If you’d rather go as Nemo, wear your favorite all-orange outfit and add stripes with white duct tape or ribbon. Then, just keep swimming until you’ve impressed all your friends with your DIY skills!
The Minions may have had their big debut in Despicable Me, but they’re full-blown superstars now that they’ve got their own feature film! Grab your denim overalls, a yellow t-shirt and some black gloves, glasses and shoes and you’re all set to go. You can make a splash in your solo minion costume or travel with a whole group of minions to really make a statement.
Rey, Finn Or BB-8
Star Wars fans old and young will be milling the streets this Halloween as their favorite galactic characters. We personally think Rey, Finn and BB-8 make for perfect solo costumes and an even better get-up for the whole family! Mom can go as Rey by donning neutral colors cinched at the waist. Dad just needs a leather bomber jacket to pull off the Finn look. And baby makes an adorable BB-8 in a white onesie with orange tape for the details.
Whether you decide to go as your favorite 50s high school sweethearts or a hilarious team of bright yellow aliens, make sure your Halloween costume stands out by keeping it wrinkle-free. Before you head out for your night of tricks and treats, be sure to give your costume a quick once-over with your Jiffy Steamer!
