Best DIY halloween costumes: YouTube videos

In just a few days time Halloween will upon us, and so far we’ve given you news of a new Angry Birds theme including a new bird “Ham o ween,” recipes for using the pumpkin, and today we can give you some ideas courtesy of others, about making an outfit from scratch or how to apply your scary makeup.

On clicking over to viral video site YouTube using this link, you will be met with pages upon pages of how members of the public have taken to the site and happily shared their costume DIY ideas with makeup tutorials. We’ve just picked out five of our favorites, with one video at the end featuring other ideas such as a catwoman, scarecrow mask, ninja mask, zipper eye tutorial, dragon wings and so on.

The first up that we enjoyed is that of the “La Catrina” Day of the Dead costume. Using materials such as a hat, feather, plastic spiders, flowers and glue the outfit can be transformed along with a makeup session.

We enjoyed watching videos for a scarecrow costume and DIY mummy with makeup tutorials for a witch and a vampire. Click onto the individual links to find out more details.
