-Hello lovely people of the WHI community!
This article is purely dedicated to those lazy people who love Halloween. It's the 28th and Halloween is going to be here in three short days. If you haven't decided yet on what costume to wear this year and are on a budget, fear not! I'm here to show you 5 ways you can turn a simple, white T-shirt dress into a dope Halloween costume.

'Tis the season to be spooky

🕸️ | Angel

A classic. For this costume, all you're gonna need is some angel wings, a halo, your trusty T-dress, some white shoes, and some white gloves.

For a little creepy surprise:

Before putting on your gloves, dip your hands into some fake blood and let it dry. Pull off your gloves and spook everyone!

🕸️ | Bunny

Another Halloween classic. Throw on your T-dress and a pair of bunny ears. On a thick white belt glue on a ball of cotton and put it around your waist to give yourself some shape. And, voila! You're a bunny.

Take it to the next level:

Drink some edible fake blood and let it drip down your chin and into your shirt. Take a carrot and douse it in blood too.

If you don't want/can't buy edible fake blood:


  • corn syrup
  • chocolate sauce
  • red food coloring
  • a drop of blue food coloring

and you made yourself edible fake blood. Go crazy!

🕸️ | Unicorn

'Cause you're magical. Shrug on a rainbow jacket atop your white T-dress, place a gold belt around your waist and throw on some nice heels/ sneakers and there you have it! A simple recipe for looking out of this world. Don't forget your horn and your wings!

For a spooky twist:
(heavily inspired by LoT's first episode of season 4)

Dip your horn into some fake blood. Dye your lips with it too, and, if possible, find a heart (like the organ) and feast on it throughout the night.

🕸️ | Ghost

This involves a little bit of DIY. With some black felt, give your T-dress some eyes and a mouth, throw on some fishnets and whiten your skin tone to look as dead as possible. Now, you won't need to fumble around with a sheet all night long.

From cute to creepy:

Hold a bloody (fake blood, people) knife in your hand. Don't kill anyone, though!

🕸️ | Sushi

Hear me out people, you're gonna love it. Use your white T-dress as the rice, an orange throw pillow as the fish and a green scarf as the seaweed. You'll be the cutest snack around.

From yummy to yucky:

To transform the look to creepy, glue or use velcro stickers to spice up your shirt with some delicious looking spiders. Try alternating them in size and place them all around for a more realistic look.

And there you have it, folks. 5 Halloween costumes that are simple and creative. Now, you don't have an excuse to show up in your jeans at the Halloween party.
