Halloween is this weekend and stores are most likely sold out of pre-made costumes.

But you know what? That’s fine! Why dress as something marketed for the masses when you can save money and create your very own unique look with supplies you most likely have at home.

We’ve probably become quite accustomed to our beds during the pandemic, so why not honour it in a do-it-yourself (DIY) get-up that’s bound to turn heads.

All you need are your pyjamas, bedsheets, a light blanket, pillow, cardboard box and something to hold it together.

Wear an eye mask and carry a stuffed animal with you for added effect.

There are several ways to do this one, but the most important thing to have here is a zip and some adhesive that’s safe for your skin.

How you choose to do your face is up to you but the zipper effect will add a certain dimension.

Part of dressing up for Halloween is also to embrace popular culture and what’s more popular right now than Squid Game?

A popular choice would be the soldiers dressed in dark pink jumpsuits wearing full-faced black masks with either a white triangle, circle or square on it.

Additionally, they also wear black belts and black gloves.

No jumpsuit? No problem, a red hoodie will do too.

If you’re a lady, change it up a little and wear a dark pink / red dress instead of a jumpsuit.

While this may be the easy way out of dressing up, just a tad bit of effort can change that with this super easy idea.

All you need is a t-shirt and a cut out of the words. You can also write it with permanent marker.


If that still sounds like a lot of work, then lets revisit these 5 last-minute Halloween outfits that are office-appropriate for the lazy Malaysian.
