Awesome Halloween Costume Ideas for Your Next DIY Halloween

Easy Things to Be for Halloween

Spooky season is upon us and in Estrella, our community is no stranger to autumn traditions while embracing the perfect desert weather. From awesome Halloween costume ideas to pumpkin carving and whipping up festive treats, Halloween is always a night to remember. Here are some examples of how your family can get creative this year.

There’s no greater feeling than stepping outside into the beautiful fall air on an Arizona Halloween night and sporting the DIY costume you’ve worked all month-long to perfect. Halloween is an invitation to dress up as whoever - or whatever - you want and allows you to tap into a creative side that you may not have known you had!

While some Halloween enthusiasts have been prepping their costumes since November of last year, others might be working on a time crunch. There are many easy, affordable, and creative costume ideas for women and men like this Pineapple from Studio DIY or these simple renditions of the classic Pirate and Cowboy costume from Sarah Forshaw’s Blog.

Simple Halloween Costume Ideas

Punny costumes are sure to be the life of the party and tend to make some of the best simple Halloween costumes. Try out something like this Bull in a China Shop from Merriment Design - anyone with a toddler knows just how spot-on this is! Maybe your toddler spent the last year watching their favorite Disney movie on repeat? Country Living has some great suggestions for easy DIY character costumes that the whole family can enjoy.

Why stop at costumes? With fall comes plenty of opportunities to unlock your crafty side. Fool your neighbors into thinking you’re the next Picasso (maybe even dress the part?) with these painted pumpkin ideas or stick with tradition and try out one of these fun pumpkin carving ideas. You can also try your hand at this timeless and delicious caramel apple recipe if you find yourself with a sweet tooth that a big bag of candy just can’t fix.

 In Estrella, residents are welcomed and encouraged to celebrate this spooktacular evening together. This vibrant community is known for going above and beyond with fun holiday events for the whole family. This year there are several events like Boo Boulevard, a drive-thru Halloween event, Spooky Storytime, a virtual event, and Tricks and Treats from the Youth Club.

Whether you’re carving pumpkins or consuming pounds of candy, a safe celebration is most important! We invite you to check out our tips for a safe (and spooky!) Halloween and look forward to a great season that's full of tricks and treats (mostly treats!)
