Community Halloween Quest: Build a Dream Halloween Costume

2990437928_1845d057f5_zWelcome to Halloween 2014 on Squidoo!

We decided to kick things off a little early to give you a jump on making your new-for-2014 Halloween lenses.

To get the ball rolling we’re looking for your best ideas for building a dream Halloween costume.  Who or what will you, or your children or your partner be this year?

To complete this quest, choose a character, animal or thing and share your DIY tips, ideas and advice for make-up, masks and making the costume.  You can create the entire ensemble or just a piece of the costume such as a mask, outfit or accessory.

Here’s a few examples to inspire you:

You’ll find further inspiration by browsing our Best of Halloween at Squidoo pages and by following our Lens of the Day entries where starting today, and over the course of the next week or so, we’ll be featuring some of our newest Halloween lenses.

When your lens is complete, send it to us using this handy Halloween Page Submission Form.

Go now.  Get creative.  We can’t wait to see what you come up with!

    Looks fun tho i am not costume designer type however the idea is pretty cool. Can’t wait to see the costumes that people come up with!

      You don’t have to be. The thought that just occurred to me is that you can take a dress up approach to the quest. You can do a DIY 007 costume which could just involve a simple tuxedo or suit and tie or what have you. I can remember back in school when some schoolmates wore their work uniforms during spirit week.

        Haha didnt thought of that yet, awesome idea. I think i will make a graphic about it or animation lets say like a POC (Proof of Concept). I will get right to it! I thought it had to be a real costume design :P
