If you're still thinking about what you want your costume to be for Halloween, you should get creative and make it instead! DIY costumes will save you money, and can be clever!

Our Smart Shopper Chelsey Davis brought in DIY costumes she made for the four anchors Monday morning to give you ideas!

Chelsey gave Iris Hermosillo, the ABC15 Mornings Meteorologist, an "it's raining men" prop. Take any umbrella or draw one onto a poster board with a ruler taped to the back for stability, and add paper-printed male celebrity faces with string and tape! Chelsey used blue ribbon to attach the heads, but you can use whatever you want!

For Dan Spindle, the ABC15 Morning Anchor, Chelsey gave him a sticky, post-it note that had the word, "apology" written on it with Sharpie. Because he was in a suit already, he turned into a "formal apology."

Danielle Lerner, the other ABC15 Morning Anchor, got social! Chelsey bought a foam board, colored it to look like an Instagram post, and cut out a center square. So, Danielle was basically holding a frame all night to capture her moments! The plus side of a foam board is that one side is white and the other side is black. So, you could also decorate the black side with a meme you write in chalk-like, "Don't be HalloMEAN!" or, "All treats and no tricks!"

Chelsey donned a pageant sash she made with ribbon she already had. She cut out white paper letters and taped them on the ribbon. The sash read, "Miss Cellaneous." Chelsey taped all kinds of random things onto her outfit, and instead of wearing a crown, she wore a chef hat! You can wear miscellaneous items when you're "Miss Cellaneous"!

There are so many great ideas. You can dress up like emojis, be Bob Ross and turn your friend into a "happy tree," and the list goes on and on. What ideas do you have? Let us know on our Facebook page.
