There's just something so satisfying about pulling off the perfect DIY Halloween costume. First of all, when you make your own costume, the possibility of walking into a party to find 10 other people have your exact same get-up greatly diminishes. Plus, DIY costumes don't usually cost you an arm and a leg to put together. Win, win. Can't really say the same for those fancy store-bought costumes out there — which is why we put all of our favorite DIY costumes and makeup looks in one place for you.
