It’s that time of year again! A time filled with spooky fun, crunchy leaves, and delicious candy (fun sized only, please).
Below are our five favorite DIY Halloween costumes for you and all the spooky, Halloween-loving yogis in your life!
*Please note that all of the costume ideas below have been carefully curated for the utmost comfort and flexibility in case you need to strike a yoga pose – as we at Barefoot Yoga often do.
We love this cute and classic look! Start by throwing on a pair of black leggings and a long-sleeved black top. Then, click here for awesome DIY instructions on how to easily add the bones! This costume can be used time and again for a comfy and cute Halloween look. However, if you’d prefer not to paint on a beloved set of yoga clothes, you can also try this DIY method, which only involves cutting up an old tee instead of painting directly on fabric.
2. “Downward Facing” Dog
Puns! Who doesn’t love ‘em? Only people who wouldn’t dress up as one, that’s who!
What’s needed in this costume, you ask? Your favorite leggings, top, wrap (if it’s chilly, which it probably is) and a stuffed dog. Step 1? Affix stuffed dog upside down on shirt using a strap set up or glue. Step 2? Done.
3. Black Cat
Me-ow! With the recent popularity of feline yoga classes, cats and yogis have never paired better. Check out this slideshow, which has a variety of different cat costume makeup looks! And, if you’re feeling extra frisky (pun intended) pick up some cat ears and a tail from your local costume shop!
4. Celebrity leaving yoga class
Head down, fast walk, sunglasses on, yoga mat bag over shoulder. Ideal if your main focus is to slip unnoticed through a crowd of festive and be-costumed people (perhaps to get home for scary movie watching) rather than join them.
5. Marathon runner
Comfiness alert! Throw on your fav yoga pants, some medals from assorted spelling bee and singing competitions from your childhood, and you’re good to go. (For extra authenticity, print out a marathon bib online to pin to your top!)
Costume Modification: If you are actually a marathon runner, please proceed using your own medals and ignore our suggestions.
Have a happy and safe Halloween, yogis!
