Everybody loves a good dress up party and wanting to be the best, so with halloween just around the corner I thought I’d find you some of the best DIY dress-up costumes I could find.

Here are some of our favourite alternative DIY costumes.

1. Sweet tooth

Yummy enough to eat? Well maybe not but it sure does look fantastic and it’s easy to make because all you need is brown paper, toilet paper and colourful streamers.

2. Pac-man


If you have a group why not get together and go as the characters from pac-man. You’ll be chasing each other all night!

3. Or… Tetris


This is definitely more original and you could even challenge yourself to see how many different combinations you can make.

4. Barbie Doll

I had barbie doll costume made for a dress up party by an Airtasker and I’ll never make a costume again because it was so great not to have to worry about it. Not to mention I won best dressed!

5. Dunkin Donuts


Costumes playing of brand names or couple costumes are always entertaining. Think bacon and eggs or cookie monster.

6. Lego


This is possibly the best one yet because everyone as a kid played with lego, plus there are so many outfit combinations.

7. Snacks anyone?


Wearing this would make you the party favourite and could even see you early a couple of dollars (only joking), but it doesn’t get much more creative than this.

8. Xenomorph

Whether it’s halloween or you just really like aliens, this is an Airtasker-made costume and perhaps the best one we’ve seen yet.

Don’t have time to make a costume? There are plenty of Airtasker happy to take up the challenge, I know that I’ll never look back!

I've loved interior design for as long as I can remember and I'm currently about to renovate my first home. So as well as being the Content Lead at Airtasker, I'm also on the lookout for the latest design trends, backyard ideas and anything to do around the home. I'm also trying to use low-tox cleaning methods and work towards being more plastic-free!

    How did they make the costumes? I would LOVE to make some of these for the kids here at the daycare!

    Hi Nicole, you can post a task on Airtasker to get these types of costumes made. I had the Barbie one made for myself and it was excellent!
