What’s the most fun part of All Hallows’ Eve? The Halloween costumes, of course. But figuring out where to start can be a challenge. That’s where we come in. First, decide whether you’re going to fly solo or go for a group costume. Then, choose a direction: Are you going to opt for an old-standby (a ghost, a cat, a skeleton), the pop culture costume of the moment (dare we guess Pokémon this year?), or something totally one-of-a-kind? No matter your choice, we have homemade Halloween costume ideas for the whole family—yes, even your pets. And you don’t even need to know how to sew. It’s easy to make Halloween costumes for kids (or adults) out of things you already have around the house—toilet paper rolls, yoga mats, yarn, and more. But, if that still sounds way too complicated, we’ve rounded up the best costumes to buy, too. Plus, masks you can throw together in minutes, realistic makeup tutorials, and simple ways to turn a T-shirt into a last-minute costume.
