Erica Domesek, the author and founder of the popular DIY blog, shares a few of her best Halloween ideas and teaches us how we can do a proper costume without ever leaving home

Erica Domesek founded the P.S.- I Made This... brand as a website in 2009 and has since been inspiring her massive following (132k on Instagram and 58.8k on Twitter) to embrace a world full of beads, sequins and color, and get down with the do-it-yourself lifestyle. Since she creates everything from accessories to home decor to everything in between on her website, we asked the style savvy DIY guru for some tips on how to create quick and easy one-of-a-kind costumes for Halloween this year.

The New Yorker encourages using items you already have in your closet as the centerpiece for the look and then mixing in accessories found at your local party supply stores. "Adding a touch of DIY and finding things from your everyday world infused with costume bits can take an ordinary costume and make them extraordinary," Domesek tells Pret-a-Reporter. "Halloween the one time of year when its all about letting your creative juices flow; why be just like everyone else, when you were born to stand out?"

If you have the below staples in your wardrobe, say hello to your semi-homemade costume:

SPOOKY SKELETON

If you're looking for a fashion-inspired creation, Domesek has that covered, too. "We took one of our favorite designer brands and infused it with a traditional spooky skeleton," says Domesek "We love some good fashion puns, of kors!"
