We organized them especially for the kids and smaller kids.

I have to admit that I’m especially excited for this Halloween because I’m the host of it. And you know how it is, the host should come up with some different when it comes to makeup and costume.

But first, let’s dress up the teenagers and those who feel like ones.

What’s your favorite animal in the woods? – Take a look at this example. Use your makeup tricks you have up on your sleeve and do some magic!

One of the most popular costumes when it comes to Halloween. If you have old clothes in your closet, it’s time to re-employee it. Makeup can be fun for zombies – just look at how good you can make this look.

Do some makeover. Rip it. Paint it. Cut holes to make them look like bites and you are ready to go.

You can even re-create the zombie apocalypse with all of your friends.


The costume is easy to make. If you have some “similarity lines” with Katy Perry is a bonus.

Twinning Emoji

If you don’t want to push yourself to the limits and opt in for a minimalist style, this costume could do the trick.

The twinning emoji represents friendship and unbreakable bond everywhere around the world. So, it’s not only a costume, but it has a story behind it.

The Burglar

If you have a white shirt with black stripes, you don’t have to spend so much time creating the Halloween costume. Add a black beanie, a mask, and you are ready to go.

You can add some tweaks if you like. Make it sexier or scarier.


The photo scared me. The idea is to make something scary. Acting like a body will give chills to everyone that will see you.

Recreate the costume if you want to be remembered as the scariest costume on the evening.

It’s scary just to think about it.


I think the minions will be the most popular costumes for Halloween 2016. The dress is simple. A pair of denim shorts, yellow shirt, and suspenders.

Create goggles from cardstock or black cloth. You can ask your friends to do the same thing and show up as a group of minions.

It will be an entertaining experience.

A ghost
