{Halloween}: Easy Scarecrow Costume

Easy Halloween Costume: Scarecrow Easy Halloween Costume: Scarecrow

Hi guys! Here is the first of several easy Halloween costume ideas I will be presenting in the next two weeks. First up: an easy homemade Scarecrow costume! I love how cute and simple this costume turned out to be; and the best part is that you can literally put this look together in less than 10 minutes!

En Español - Hola a todos! Aquí les dejo con la primera de varias ideas de disfraces para Halloween que estaré presentando en las próximas dos semanas. Para empezar, porqué no intentan hacer este disfraz super sencillo de espantapájaros? Me encanta lo lindo y simple que resultó ser este disfraz; y lo mejor de todo es que literalmente puedes hacer este disfraz en menos de 10 minutos!

What I like the most about this costume is that it is made entirely by things that most women already have in their closets. This is what you will need:
  • Jeans
  • Plaid shirt
  • Boots
  • Hat (bonus points if its made out of straw!)
  • Black eyeliner (a must!) and orange eyeshadow (optional)
  • A little bit of hay
  • Sunflowers (optional)


Lo que más me gusta de este disfraz es que está compuesto de cosas que la mayoría de las mujeres ya tienen en sus closets. Esto es lo que vas a necesitar:
  • Jeans
  • Camisa de cuadros
  • Botas
  • Sombrero (mejor aún si es de pajita!)
  • Lápiz de ojos en color negro y (opcional) sombra de ojos en color naranja
  • Paja
  • Girasoles (opcional)

Clothing & Accessories:
For this costume, all you need to wear is your favorite pair of jeans, a comfy plaid shirt (if possible, try to get one in Autumn colors like mine), a pair of boots, and of course a hat. As simple as that.


Ropa y Accesorios:
Para este disfraz, solamente necesitas usar tus jeans favoritos, una camisa de cuadros (preferiblemente en colores de otoño como el mío), unas botas, y un sombrero. Así de sencillo.

Makeup:
The key part of this costume is definitely the makeup. I used a black eyeliner to draw these designs on my nose and mouth. I also outlined the bottom of my eyes with a subtle scarecrow-ish (invented word!) design. I finished it off by adding a little orange eyeshadow to the circle on my nose (optional!). I promise this makeup isn't hard to do at all, give it a try!


Maquillaje:
El elemento clave de este disfraz sin duda es el maquillaje. Yo use un lápiz de ojos negro para dibujar estos diseños en mi nariz y boca. También hice un diseño sutil debajo de los ojos que siento que le da ese toque de espantapájaros. Terminé mi maquillaje agregando un poco de sombra de ojos en color naranja al círculo que está en mi nariz (pero eso es opcional!). Prometo que este maquillaje no fue nada difícil de hacer, no tengas miedo de intentarlo tú también!

Finishing touches:
A great way to finish off this costume is to grab some hay and stuff it into the top of your boots and out of the sleeves of your shirt. I used just a little bit, but you could go all out with the hay! As a prop, I also bought some big plastic sunflowers to give it that Autumn Scarecrow look.


Toques finales:
Una idea genial para terminar este disfraz es agarrar un poco de paja y ponerlo en la parte superior de tus botas y en las mangas de tu camisa. También me gustó la idea de comprar estos girasoles de plástico como accessorio para darle ese look de espantapájaros de otoño.

    Awesome idea! I needed a last minute costume to wear to work (I'm a preschool teacher) & this works perfect since I have everything I need! I took a straw hat pretty much made a fall floral arrangement on it! Then I opted to do two low side braids (messy) & used straw tucked into tops of my boots & shirt pocket! I love your make-up idea too! Thanks soooo much! This was perfect for me!
