Last Minute DIY Halloween Costume Ideas 2021
Updated: Oct 25, 2021
Are you in the frantic scramble to find a noteworthy costume for Halloween 2021? Well we got you covered! Here are four last minute DIY costume ideas that are truly a sign of the times...
Rising sea levels, extreme weather patterns, warming oceans, melting ice caps... the list goes on and on. The possibilities are endless and all pretty terrifying. Whichever direction you choose to go, make sure that all clothes involved in your costume are not the product of fast fashion (that would be ironic!), and any paper cut-outs used are recycled.

Bernie Sanders with mittens
Remember when Bernie Sanders was cold at Biden’s inauguration back in January? (Remember January?!) Once again, Bernie stole our hearts with his curmudgeonly vibes and giant mittens. For this costume, you need some big mittens (extra points if your mittens are from an independent business, like Bernie’s), a brown coat, a mask, and a folding chair in which you can sit comfortably while you gently judge the people around you.
Kim Kardashian at the Met Gala
You are already wearing a mask… you might as well cover up your whole body ala Kim Kardashian at the 2021 Met Gala. If you don’t have access to a black full-bodysuit, you can use a pair of tights over your head, I guess? Be ready to explain that this outfit is a commentary on the oversaturation of celebrities in our culture and the commodification of the female form.

Put a bunch of stickers on your forehead and cheeks and give every adult in your life an angsty glare and an eye roll because they just don’t get you and god, it’s brutal out here. Bonus: you can wear your regular clothes, because really it’s way too hot in Waimea to wear a black bodysuit or a puffer coat like Bernie.
