3. DIY Pineapple Costume
You don't always have to be scary for Halloween. Sometimes, it's okay to just be a pineapple. A pineapple is awesome. Be a pineapple.
4. Light Up Fairy Garden Tulle Maxi Dress
Light up every room with this DIY fairy garden maxi dress costume. Be very careful with the assembly, though. You don't want to be the girl with the fairy garden to be the girl on fire.

Make a costume that has a sense of humor. She Sells Seashells Down By The Seashore, anyone? Have everyone recite it, and if you can think of any other tongue twisters, go right ahead.
