Luckily, this costume is all creativity and can be put together with the help of your wardrobe and makeup drawer.

Sweet Scarecrow

One of the best parts about this costume is the versatility! You can choose to purchase a costume, or simply wear some comfy overalls, a tee and a silly hat! This Sunflower Scarecrow costume, $55, is also a cute option for the cowgirl who loves to look girly. Go all out and paint your face to really get into the scarecrow spirit!
