FULL SIZE MONSTER COSTUME  

This is way easier than you might think, all you need is to find a bright or pastel-coloured hoodie and glue on some monster features to make eyes, teeth and horns. You could use colourful dots of felt, sponge or any material you like to make monster features and then add more to the body of the jacket. For an added scare, you could even try creating some monster claws or feet by adding more felt to gloves or shoes.
