Creative Halloween Costumes

Contributor post by Susie from GinnyPenny

It’s the one day of the year you get to dress up as silly, scary or sexy as you want. Halloween lets us just have some fun with expressing ourselves.

Etsy’s got you covered, as long as you plan ahead and order in time. Here are some unique finds to really set your costume apart from the rest.

As long as we are talking about planning ahead, why not sew your own costume?

A black cape is a great way to start a costume. This one, with its beautiful clasp can transform you into a vampire, a witch or even a medieval lady.  With its versatility you will be able to use it for many years.

If you are like me, you have at least one witch hat in your closet. You know, just in case you need an impromptu costume. If that’s the case add a cat and a broomstick pin and it doesn’t matter what else you wear, you’re set!
