Bag of Jelly Beans

Best Cheap Women’s Halloween Costume

Why people love it
  • Super simple DIY
  • Great for a last-minute costume idea
  • Instantly recognizable

We ran into this idea on roxy3’s Instagram and absolutely fell in love with this cheap Halloween costume idea for women (or men). Not only is it a great idea for a last-minute costume, but it’s easy to put together too as the balloon set comes with ribbons and a tool to blow up the balloons for you!

You’ll still need to track down a clear plastic bag and Jelly Belly label.


Comfort: Unless one of those balloons pops on you or you wrap the bag too tightly around your body, you shouldn’t have to deal with much discomfort at all when wearing this costume.

Longevity: Considering balloons don’t have a very long shelf-life, the elements of the costume itself won’t last very long. However, this idea is a good one to keep on hand in the future if you’re short on time but still want something fun and creative to wear.

Price: Since this comes with balloons, ribbon, and a blow-up tool, this is actually pretty cheap for a DIY costume.
