DIY Halloween Costumes For Women

Exploiting trademarks and trade dress for monetary gain can cause brand dilution and tarnishment. But doing so for your own DIY Halloween costume will not make you the subject of a lawsuit. Well, surely not a successful one. 😉 So get inspired like Jeremy Scott* and create a unique Halloween costume that can help you win a costume contest.

For the craft part of these DIY Halloween costumes, opt for fabric paint pens and/or fabric Sharpies and/or iron-on transfer pens and/or washable paint pens.

The high-end looks below also make for easy Halloween costume projects.

Of course, if you do not have cute accessories and would need to shop anyway, why not go all out? Dress as a fashion icon for Halloween. Want to keep it law themed? Dress as Amal Alamuddin Clooney.
