To be honest, I’m not the biggest Halloween enthusiast–I get scared pretty easily and I don’t really enjoy dressing up. But lately, I’ve found that it’s a lot more fun and motivating to put on a costume if it’s something you’ve made yourself!

Of course, I’m not about to whip out a sewing machine and some cloth (because I’m pretty lazy), so it’s gotta be something simple but still funny, and I mean, what’s funnier than memes? ….right?

So a few of the other WIMterns and I came up with 8 different and easy DIY Halloween costumes for you to try out for your next trick or treat/Halloween party!
