This month, the Stone Point Apartments Blog is bringing our residents ways to get costumed to celebrate Halloween. Check out our DIY resources as well as some online and local costume shops. Whether you hunker down in your apartment to create a costume from scratch or head out to shop in the Menomonee Falls, WI area, we’ve got you covered. Read on to learn more about these topics in today's blog post.

DIY Costume Ideas


You don’t have to be a fan of the band — or have friends for a group costume — to pull this costume off. This is the perfect costume to try if all you can find in your apartment or between the couch cushions is a handful or two of nickels. Round up as many as you can find and glue them onto the back of a spare T-shirt.

Flapper and Gangster

A timeless combination, and it’s easy to nail the look with a few well-chosen pieces, hats, hairstyles, and accessories. We love the whole 1920s look. Hello, Charleston.


Yo ho ho - being a pirate is a super easy-to-pull-off costume idea for couples for Halloween. You can both be pirates, or one can be a pirate and the other a wench. Have fun and brush up on your pirate-speak, because it’s an important part of your character.

Hot Air Balloon Rider

Cut the bottom out of a cardboard box to make it into the basket, attach some helium balloons to your basket, and add a few decorative touches. Or get inspired by Creatively Christy to turn yourself into the flying house from Disney Pixar’s movie UP!
