Halloween is just around the corner and with the busy lives we lead, finding a costume can be a challenge. However, limited time does not equal a bad costume. With a pinch of creativity, you can build a great costume out of things you already own. Small details can add a surprising amount of character, so don't skim on wigs, hats, gloves, glasses, make up or jewelry.
An easy way to pick a costume is to find a character or person that you already look like, and preferably one that you also like or connect with. To make it look more convincing, pay attention to the facial features that you don't have in common with the person or character you are emulating. Freckles, moles, and wrinkles are super easy to place, but if you want to take it a step further and try contouring your face to look like theirs.
If you're talented enough, you don't even have to look like the person! For more costume and Halloween ideas, follow us on Pinterest. Happy costuming!
