A collection of Do-It-Yourself Halloween costumes
By Andrew Linde Multimedia Manager
This Halloween I made a simple captain’s costume out of stuff I mostly already owned. I bought the captain’s hat at an army surplus store and completed the look with khakis, a blue sweater, boots, a peacoat, and a pipe. The blue sweater I bought just for the costume. The boots and peacoat I already owned for extreme winters. The pipe I borrowed from a friend.

What inspired my costume was my obsession with Poe Dameron’s jacket from Star Wars episode 7. I didn’t want a boring resistance fighter costume because I like to go all out. Over the past years, I have wanted to wear a steampunk costume over the years but never got a chance. Thus my costume this year is a combination: Steampunk Jedi!

My inspiration was from Game of Thrones’ Daenerys Targaryen’s dress. It was fairly easy considering that I just learned how to use a sewing machine. I chose a lightweight baby blue fabric. The most difficult part was making the belt and shoulder pieces.
While it didn’t end up looking exactly like it did on TV, I was still happy getting through it and having something to wear for the spooky season.

Going as Velma Dinkley from Scooby Doo required a lot of stuff I just couldn’t make. I had to be thrifty in a different way.
In the end, the turtleneck and skirt came from Amazon, the shoes from Goodwill, and the socks from a sporting goods store. Lastly, my brother borrowed a pair of 3–__D glasses from a theater and punched the lenses out.
