I absolutely love couple and family costumes themed after the Belchers from Bob's Burgers. This one isn't hard — you'll need some aprons, a red shirt, and some novelty glasses!

4. When it doubt, go for Ariana.

You'll need super high ponytail and an oversized sweater to pull off the Ariana look. Don't forget to contour your face! Also, friendly reminder that pants are absolutely optional with this costume.

6. The scarecrow is at true DIY classic.

I mean, how easy is this? Pick up, thrift, or use your existing farmer best (aka jeans and a plaid shirt), grab a hat, and pull up a YouTube tutorial on how to paint those stitches.

You don't have to buy an existing shield for your kid to go as their favorite superhero! Cutting circles out of cardboard and even having your child help paint will easily create an adorable tiny shield.

8. Get batty with it.

You'll need some little ears, and some scrap black fabric. Remember, you don't have to be good at sewing to make those wings — you just need to be able to use a pair of scissors and some hot glue.

10. Ready to rob some banks?

If you can't find a striped shirt, a simple white shirt will do. Pick up some electrical tape and make those strips yourself, as well as the "$" symbol on the bag! Don't forget the novelty money, okay?

A blonde wig, some black dye, and an oversized bow are all you'll need to create the perfect Sia look. You can hide your whole face under those bangs!

Party animals! Pick up some party favors from the dollar store, a pair of cat ears, and a cat makeup kit from your local Spirit Halloween. (What did your Spirit Halloween used to be? Mine was a Forever 21.)
