Halloween is fast approaching, with Halloween parties popping left and right all month. You never know which one you’re going to join—or when. Thus, if you need a guide on easy and fun Halloween costumes Singapore, we’ve got you covered. 😉
1. Cady Heron from Mean Girls
It’s not just Wednesdays when we wear pink! Cady’s first “Plastics” pink outfit is an easy but iconic wear for a Halloween costume Singapore. You just need a large pink polo, pants, and sneakers to pull this off.
Pro-tip: the more oversized the polo, the better. Cady’s first pink outfit symbolizes how she’s still trying to fit in with the all-pink “Plastics.” Trust us—everyone who has seen Mean Girls knows what your costume is!
2. Ice Cube
Transferring to the world of DIY Halloween costumes Singapore, why not dress up as an ice cube? Hear us out—get out clear trash bags and attach it onto a white shirt. Then, fill it up with clear matte vinyl plastics to give it a cloudy look.
Just because your look is hazy doesn’t mean you can’t create a clear costume. Put an “ICE” label on your costume.
Pro-tip: Take this outfit a step further by turning it into a pun. (ICE ICE Baby, like the example above!)
If you want a costume that resonates with any generation, buy a Pikachu hat and make waves this Halloween season. Put in some effort by wearing a matching yellow shirt, pants, and (optional) Pikachu’s iconic lightning bolt tail.
One-and-done Pikachu costumes are also possible for the extra lazy. Buy a Pikachu onesie and get your Halloween costumes Singapore done with.
Pro-tip: You can create the ears on your own. Cut out samples on a yellow cardboard and add black to its tips. Attach it to a headband after—voila!
4. Cartoonish Thief
Black and white striped shirt, a black eye mask, and a bag with a dollar sign on it—also a one and done Halloween costume! While robbers don’t look like this in real life, this cartoonish take is very easy to spot.
Pro-tip: Have fun (dance the night away, even) with this effortless and comfortable look. Choose this if you have a big night ahead!
5. M&M candy
Going to a Halloween party with your group of friends? Get your solid color shirts out and dress as M&M candy! All you need is the “M” logo stuck in the middle of your shirt and you’ve got yourself a packet of M&Ms.
Pro-tip: Take this a step further by searching the outfits of the cartoon M&Ms.
6. Minnie Mouse
Another very recognizable but easy DIY Halloween costume in Singapore is Minnie Mouse. While you may need to find or buy Minnie Mouse ears, other than that you’ve got the entire outfit covered.
Dress as Minnie Mouse by pairing the ears with leggings, a black t-shirt (or leotards) and a red skirt. These items are basics in any woman’s closet, but if you don’t have one—borrowing won’t be much of a problem as well.
Pro-tip: Don’t forget to add polka dots and facepaint to your final outfit too!
7. Cards Against Humanity Cards
Cards are generally easy Halloween costumes Singapore because of the material you make them with: illustration boards. Buy two illustration boards each and slap designs on it to make it look like a card.
A modern take on this simple but effective Halloween costume is to dress up as a Cards Against Humanity card. The statements are crass and funny, so it shows a lot of your personality while being so quick to make.
Pro-tip: this is the ultimate EASY Halloween costume! If you can’t print, draw the card content onto the illustration board.
8. Salt and Pepper Costume
Who said couples costumes had to take a lot of time and energy? Dress up with your S/O as salt and pepper shakers, which only takes at least 5 minutes of your day! One wears a white t-shirt with “S” on it while the other wears a black t-shirt with “P” on it. Make sure the font of the letters are homey for an old American household vibe.
Pro-tip: You can put pot covers on your head as well to mimic the shiny tops of salt and pepper shakers.
9. DIY Stick Figure or Skeleton
Inventive DIY Halloween costumes in Singapore for kids should always include stick figures and skeletons. If you don’t want to buy (or rent) a costume, these are classic looks for a good buck.
How to execute? Prepare an all-white outfit. Head to toe, your outfit should be cohesively white. Next, create a stick figure body using electrical tape. For the face, you can simply create one in a white paper plate and tie it around your head.
Pro-tip: Wow everyone by switching the colors—wear an all black outfit with a glowing white stick figure outline. Your costume will be a hit in no time!
Millennials can have a lot of fun dressing up as hipsters, which is a lighthearted jab at hipster culture. Create this look by getting washed-up items from your closet and putting them together. (Old flannels, scarves, browline style glasses, and more.
Take this a step further by holding up pretentious books and a cup of coffee. Make your humorous personality shine with this costume!
Pro-tip: Dress up your children as hipsters too! It’ll be very funny for fellow parents, and your kids can try out a few of your outfits (though you will have to resize them).
11. Waldo (Where’s Waldo)
Christmas and Halloween are close together, so let’s be economical, shall we? Use your red and white striped shirts for a Where’s Waldo costume. This is how you bring some childhood sentimentality to an otherwise adult Halloween party.
You can use a few items from your Christmas hats too and repurpose them.
Pro-tip: Those hipster glasses you can use for the previous costume? Create a more realistic Waldo by using them for this costume! 😉
With Halloween fast approaching, may these Halloween costumes Singapore bring you back to all the great memories you had as a child. These top easy Halloween costumes will surely bring fun to an otherwise spooky celebration; reminding everyone that there’s nothing better than a Halloween gathering!
