Don't want to be recognized by some unleashed spirits on the All Hallows Eve? Not sure if you'd like to be lured into the 'other world' too soon? Do not worry; the Halloween costumes are there for a reason. Traditionally, they were meant to be worn so that the ghosts and spirits wouldn't recognize you and cause you no harm. Today, it's more of a fun tradition, when you can be somebody else, at least for a day. If in the olden days the disguise were more about witches and ghosts, now you can morph into your favorite movie character, an animal and even an object or an intangible idea - creative Halloween costumes are the hype right now.

Since All Saints Eve is right around the corner, you should've by now gotten your Halloween costume ideas ready to go. But sometimes it can be hard to come up with something creative and original, without clearing your bank account. Bored Panda has helpfully compiled a list of some of the most impressive DIY Halloween costumes we could find so that you can get some last minute inspiration. Scroll down to check them out below. And if you're going to a party with your SO, there are couples Halloween costumes too!

Its no easy job to walk in those heels, my sister once jokingly taunted me to try those pencil heels and I couldn't walk even one or 2 step perfectly. If this guy has courage to put them on and come to office/college whatever this place is, I will upvote this image for the courage only.
