Eco-Friendly Costumes for a Disney Inspired Halloween
With Halloween just days away, it’s time to make sure your costume is ready to go! If you’re still looking for inspiration, Disney Environmentality has put together some eco-friendly costumes you can whip up at home.
Being environmentally friendly can be as simple as using things you have around the house or reusing old costumes. So do a last-minute raid of your house and see if you can create your own DIY, eco-friendly Halloween costume.
“We already owned a WALL-E hoodie and EVE Mickey Ears, and used one of Andrew’s snow boots and a succulent I had in my living room. I think they would have been proud of our eco-friendly hacks and ingenuity!” — Amanda, Travel Sales Support intern
“The costume was made from a corset, tights and wig I already owned. I liquid stitched and painted some old fabric to create the tentacles and wrap — stuffing them with plastic bags as a way of reusing them for my villainous Ursula costume.” — Madison, Wilderness Explorer
“I painted white paper from the recycle bin then crumpled them up to create the popcorn that are glued onto an old shirt I no longer wear. Luckily, I had a red striped skirt to match but you can always use red pants or skirt from a second-hand store. You can paint the skirt with white paint or use white tape to make the stripes. And pop!” — Thiffany, Operations Manager
The Lizzie McGuire Movie
“Hey now! Hey now! We repurposed the tulle and accessories from old Rapunzel- and Tinkerbell-inspired costumes to create our ‘The Lizzie McGuire Movie’ costumes.” – Maria, Environmental Coordinator
“I had the outfit and added ribbon from my sewing nook for a belt and bowtie. The flowers for the hat were repurposed from some floral wreath-making supplies, and I used clay to create the parrot head on top of an old umbrella. Lastly, the “practically-perfect” carpet bag was a fabulous find at a resale shop!” – Lindsay, Magic Kingdom Communications Manager
“Most of what we wore we already owned, and I used a broom, put a pool noodle over it with duct tape to create the large paintbrush for my artsy costume. I borrowed a headband and glued old paintbrushes to it to complete the look.” — Joey, Communications Specialist
Disney Bounding in Eco-Friendly Costumes
“My family was inspired by Donald, Daisy and Pluto for our Halloween costumes. Most of what we wore we already owned, and my skirt was made out of an old blanket that I cut and fabric glued into a skirt.” — Becky, Food & Beverage Hostess
“Environmentality and being green are incredibly important to me and my friends. That’s why most of the elements from our costumes came from a second-hand store or a good ole’ fashion clothing swap.” — Libby, Disney Internships & Programs Specialist
“The force was with us making my niece’s last-minute ‘Rey’ costume. She had the clothes and boots. We just added an old household drape we no longer use for her wrap and the lightsaber from the family toy box!” — Siva, Technology Manager
“I used old blue eyeshadow from the bottom of my makeup drawer to create my Sadness look. This was a good alternative to buying new face paint and was easier to wash off at the end of my emotional evening.” — Sloane, Public Affairs Intern
