Halloween funZombie: Find a ball gown or vintage suit. Purchase face makeup to create the ‘dead’ look and smear fake blood on your face, hands or clothing.

Vampire: Pick out a button-down shirt and black pants. Create a dark-colored cape from a secondhand tablecloth, sheet or curtain. Top off the look with white face paint, black eye makeup and fangs.

Pirate: Pair a white button-down shirt with black pants and black vest. Add a sash around your waist, a seaworthy hat and pirate makeup to complete the costume.

Witch: Grab a black dress and black pointed hat. Wear a long dark wig, tights and black shoes. Finish the look with face paint and a broom.
