Favorite Halloween Costumes of 2013


I had a blast rounding up my favorite Halloween costumes last year, so I decided to do it again in 2013! But this time I also have something else fun to share… all the AMAZING Studio DIY inspired costumes you shared with me! I was FLOORED by how many of you created the costumes I posted this year, and was so happy each time I saw a new one tagged with #studiodiyincostume. So! Below I rounded up all the ones I had (up until the time I wrote this post) and it was probably the most fun thing EVER! You guys are so stinkin’ talented and I just love each and every one of these costumes below!!! So check ’em out, and then keep scrolling to check out my faves spotted around Instagram last week. There’s some AWESOME ones, folks!

    The baby pineapple is so adorable! and that flamingo costume, look at those wings. I really like the Picasso one to. They are all so creative. It’s really hard to pick a favorite! I love seeing my Instagram picture up there(I’m the one getting my head pulled off!). Thanks for giving us such awesome DIY’s for Halloween costumers. I’m sure they will be used year round for all occasions.
