Dive into our list of fun, sassy, and inexpensive DIY sexy Halloween costumes or not with ideas that will make you the talk of the party.

Smarty Pants

What you’ll need: A pair of jeans, sticky notes, and a marker.

How to: Write random trivia, equations, or funny quotes on the sticky notes and attach them all over your pants. Wear glasses (real or fake) and carry a few books for added effect. Who knew being nerdy could be this cheeky?

Cereal Killer

What you’ll need: Mini cereal boxes, plastic knives, red paint, and a basic T-shirt.

How to: Stick mini cereal boxes onto your T-shirt. Stab them with plastic knives and splatter some red paint for a “bloody” effect. Now you’re a cereal (serial) killer! Pun-tastic, right?

Identity Thief

What you’ll need: A bunch of name tags and a black outfit.

How to: Write random names on the name tags and stick them all over your outfit. When someone asks who you are, just say, “I’m an identity thief.” Simple, clever, and bound to get a few chuckles.

A Work of Art

What you’ll need: An old white T-shirt, fabric markers or paint, a palette (or cardboard cutout), and a paintbrush.

A Formal Apology

What you’ll need: A fancy dress, a sash, and a marker.

How to: Write “SORRY” on the sash. Don your fanciest dress and wear the sash. Voilà! You’re a “formal apology.” This one’s especially handy if you’ve got that old prom or bridesmaid dress lying around.

French Kiss

What you’ll need: A striped T-shirt, a beret, red lipstick, and face paint.

How to: Dress up like a French girl with the striped baby tee and beret. Then, paint your face in the iconic KISS band style. You’re not just French; you’re a French KISS!

Spice Girls

What you’ll need: Old spice containers, poster paper, and markers.

How to: Create mock labels like “Cayenne” or “Basil” and glue or tape them to the containers. Wear them as necklaces or belts. Now, grab a few friends to join in and form your own “Spice Girls” group.

The Ghost of Social Media Past

What you’ll need: White bedsheet, markers or paint, old logos of MySpace, MSN, etc.

How to: Cut out eye holes in the bedsheet to make a ghost costume. Draw or stick old social media logos on the sheet. You’re now the ghost of social media platforms long forgotten!

Universal Remote

What you’ll need: A black dress and colored sticky dots or buttons.

How to: Stick the buttons/dots in rows on your dress to resemble a remote. You’re a universal remote! Bonus: Pretend to mute people at the party.
