When it comes to Halloween, why buy your costume if you could make it (or better yet, pull it out of your own closet!)?? All week long I’ll share my ideas for inexpensive, homemade Halloween costumes. Enjoy!

For my Rosie the Riveter costume, I looked no further than the iconic “We Can Do It” WWII era poster by J. Howard Miller (read more here). And this get up is was a freebie - I already had all of the pieces hanging in my closet.

Key Elements:

  • Red Bandana
  • Chambray or denim button up shirt
  • High Waisted Jeans

I love this costume because it’s probably something that most gals have ready to go in their closet.  I actually got the idea from one of my office mates who went as Rosie last year.  In addition to the three key elements, a vintage hair ‘do completes the look.  For mine, I teased my grown out bangs forward and then swooped them back and secured with bobby pins and hair spray. I secured the rest of my hair into a low pony tail and pined it upwards to lay smooth under the bandana. Polka dots are great, but any red scarf will do the trick. Finally, red lips aren’t a must, but I felt like they pulled everything together. Get ready to flex those biceps! 

Cost: $0
Difficulty Level: Easy
Time Commitment: 30 minutes or less
