Halloween Easy Costumes Winners

First of all - congratulations to all the finalists!

Our Halloween Easy Costumes finalists shared some absolutely fantastic costumes! Here at Instructables we are always impressed with how the simplest of materials can be turned into the most amazing Halloween costumes. Not only were our finalists super creative and resourceful, their costumes were well documents and could easily be recreated on a small budget and with very little time. We loved reading all the tips and tricks for getting a costume just right, substituting materials and customization. Picking winners was challenging, but we know you'll be just as impressed as we are with them!

And so, without further ado...

FIRST PRIZE
Composer Busts by davidandora.


This costume is not only incredibly easy to do, but it's an original concept and looks fantastic. Another fun attribute is that it looks even better when grouped together, so this costume is perfect for you and your friends!

SECOND PRIZE
(alphabetical order)
HAWKEYE. by Mr.Sanchez
How to make a Thor Costume by The Rambler
Minecraft Steve Costume by pjkumpon


pjkumpon's Minecraft Steve Costume was one of the best we've got on Instructables - looks amazing and the finishing touches like adding velcro to keep the head on straight or adding foam for comfort truly made it a top notch costume! Hawkeye and Thor used hot glue and craft foam in fabulous and inventive ways - both costumes are definite proof that those two materials can make great costume armor.


THIRD PRIZE
(alphabetical order)
Duct Tape TMNT Shredder Costume for $8.11 by imamathguy
Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader (Kid-friendly) by eric3dee
Make an award-winning costume in one night with packing tape and newspaper by morganlemae
Mr. Fredrickson from UP - Halloween costume, 8mo+ by T_Albrecht
YOSHI HOODIE by jtrask1


Our third prize winners really shined when it came to using household and ready made materials! Mr. Fredickson's PVC pipe walker was perfect - and we loved the idea of adding extra weight to it to help with stability. And the sweater vest and bow tie were too cute! Shredder's cardboard and duct tape armor came together quick and was ingenious - the duct tape is a great substitute for metal. The Yoshi Hoodies were a great project - we loved how the author took a simple piece of clothing and was able to make a cute costume that looked great and was easy to wear out trick or treating! morganlemae's tree costume shows the potential of packing tape in costume making - I can't wait to see if it spawns more packing tape costumes. And last but not least, the creative use of materials like ace bandages and a milk jug for the Luke Skywalker and Vader costume was really impressive - not to mention the absolutely adorable photos!



Congratulations to all that entered! It was so much fun reviewing all the entries. Our Halloween contests make us realize we truly have the most creative and expressive community on the internet. You are all amazing - thank you for sharing with us. :D
