Amazing Costume Ideas for Halloween with Leotards & Tutus - Beyond the Barre

Create this year's Halloween costume DIY style with basic dance wear pieces like unitards, leotards and tutus. Here are some ideas we love....

Pair a royal blue short sleeve or long sleeve leotard with a red tutu for a unique spin on our favorite Dr. Seuss characters.

    Thing 1 and Thing 2.

Create a cat suit with a simple black unitard. Add ears, a tail and some creative make up and you are ready for Trick or Treat


More creative ideas made with only unitards and fabric paint.



Take a nude long sleeve leotard like this one and pair with a pale yellow or white tutu to create a lion costume. Brown felt can be used to create a tail. Buy ears and face paint to complete the look.



For a peacock costume pair a royal blue long sleeve leotard with a teal or royal blue tutu. Create your own feathers and apply to back of tutu with fabric glue.
