Depending on who you ask, The Great Gatsby is F. Scott Fitzgerald's masterpiece novel about passion and the great American Dream, or it's a movie starring Leonardo DiCaprio. Whichever version you prefer, there's no denying that the 1920s makes for a great party theme. All it takes is a little bit of jazz music, our flapper dresses, and some dashing suits to make your party feel like the speakeasy throwback you've been yearning for. And since prohibition no longer exists, you don't have to worry about the cops coming to bust up your Gatsby costume party.

Choosing a costume is one of the best parts about Halloween (it's only second to eating bags of candy and chocolate, of course). When you're trying to find the perfect family, group, or couple costume, it's scary how easy it is to spend a lot of money on store-bought costumes. Plus, you never know who else might show up in the exact same costume at a house down the block! That's why these homemade Halloween costumes are the way to go, whether you're looking for creative ideas for babies, toddlers, kids, or adults. Whether you're aiming to be scary, funny, or a combination of the two, these Insta-worthy DIY Halloween costumes can easily be made with everyday items you already have on hand and a few last-minute Amazon Prime finds that will arrive just in the nick of time. Either way, these family-friendly costumes, which cover everything from pop culture to puns, are way cheaper and more creative than anything else you'll find at the store. Sorry, we just had to say it. Even if you don't consider yourself particularly crafty, these ideas are easy enough that the most glue gun-challenged among us can find something that works.
Ben Carpenter is a cosplayer who uses a wheelchair. For this year’s Tampa Bay Comic Con, he and his group became the cast of Mad Max: Fury Road. Ben was Max in the scene where he was strapped to the front of a vehicle in order to supply blood to the driver. He used his wheelchair in the upright position for the vehicle, driven by a friend and accompanied by other characters from the movie. They won the award for Best Group Cosplay. Of course they did.

Dressing in costume is one of the most common and recognizable traditions that dates back thousands of years to celebrate one of the oldest holidays, Halloween. It was the Celts, who lived 2,000 years ago, that were believed to wear the first "costumes" consisting of animal heads and skins, during the bonfire celebration of Samhain.  Even though adult costumes have come a long way from the "animal heads and skins" that the Celts wore, the desire for people to dress up in costume and celebrate a special occasion is still in our blood.

Historians often credit Peter J. McGuire, co-founder of the American Federation of Labor, as the first to propose a holiday celebrating workers. According to the modern-day American Federation of Labor, McGuire brought up the idea in an 1882 meeting of the New York Central Labor Union, saying that workers should lead a parade to “publicly show the strength and esprit de corps of the trade and labor organizations.”

It’s not really a new picture, but this photo was posted just last week showing a baby who can’t wait until he’s born to go trick-or-treating. Redditor Ghost0_ told us how he and his wife used that idea for Halloween a couple of years ago, and what went into making it. You don’t really have to be pregnant to pull this off, but it’s funnier to people who know you if you are.  

Flickr user jpotisch made this snow globe costume by hand! The globe is fashioned from clear acetate, and the snow is made from bits of foam hanging by thread. He posted the building process in a Flickr album with some commentary along the way. He said it took about three days to build, but the finished product is a work of art! He also made the banana costume his son is wearing in the background—and it has a photo tutorial, too.

If you were a factory worker in the 1880s, you were probably toiling away at your job for an average of 60 hours a week, and it wasn't unheard of for textile laborers in New York to make only 75 cents a day, which was a paltry sum, even for the time. To bring attention to these unfair working conditions, labor organizers coordinated the first Labor Day parade on Tuesday, September 5, 1882.
Turn your favorite Instagram filter into an easy costume you and your significant other can both use. To make it, pull up Instagram stories on your phone and select the "Heart Eyes" filter. Then, point the phone at a blank surface and take a screenshot. Send the screenshot file to a printing or office supplies store to have it blown up and printed on a thick board. Then, cut out a part in the middle for your face.
