Halloween is in 4 weeks!! If you’re traveling around and think you can’t have a cool costume for Halloween, you’re wrong. There are plenty of do-it-yourself costume ideas out there, and some will require almost no work and the budget of a cheap Polish beer. You might just need to borrow a lamp shade or a broom stick from the hostel you’re staying at. Ask the hostel staff about any goodwill stores nearby, you’re bound to find lots of cool accessories to help you make the perfect Halloween costumes!

Easy to make! Grab your normal black clothes from your suitcase, and apply white powder (bought from the dollar store) over your face, neck and arms. Ask the hostel staff to print something resembling a screenshot of a silent movie dialogue, and voila!

This one is also easy to make by looking through your rucksack. If you’ve got a stripped shirt, perfect! Find a pair of gloves and a white plastic bag. Draw a money sign on it!

Got an umbrella? This one is for you. Cut basic paper and plastic bags into long pieces and attach them to an umbrella to turn yourself into a sea creature in no time. Bonus point if you do this as a group. About during a hostel pub crawl?

Get on the pun wagon with this cereal killer costume. Find empty boxes of cereal, glue them onto your shirt, stick some plastic knives in them and splatter some ketchup all over yourself. 

Free Food Shelf

Best hostel-related Halloween costume!

Well, the most hostel-related costume! This was from a coworker a few years back. He grabbed some ‘Label your food’ stickers, stuck them on his shirt along with stuff found on the free food shelf, like plastic spoons, ketchup packets and tea bags. Definitely quick and cheap!

What will you be this Halloween?

The Hostel Worker

I once asked a fellow hostel worker if he was still sane after working in hostels for so many years. His response: "Well, sane is another word for boring." Here's to many more hostel years!
