2013 Inspired DIY Halloween Costumes

Halloween is here! Okay, getting CLOSE, but that doesn't mean there is any time to spare.  It is time to start preparing, but sometimes the creativity part of Halloween is hard. It is so easy to walk into a pop-up costume store and buy another boring, expensive costume that at least 3 other people you know will be wearing.

Not to worry, pop culture and DIY are here to save the day! Our crazy world gives us creative fuel to light our fire year after year and 2013 was no different. So much has happened this year and Halloween is the ideal opportunity to showcase the crazy. With so much happening in our weird little world, it was nearly impossible to narrow it down. I somehow managed to put together 5 DIY, 2013 inspired costumes to try this Halloween.
