Picking out the perfect Halloween costume is the ultimate test of outfit planning. It needs to be trendy, but not so trendy that everyone else will be wearing the same thing. It needs to be affordable, because come on, you're only wearing it once. And of course, you need to feel good in it. And there's no better way to check off all those boxes than by DIYing a costume costume yourself.
