Take a trip to the Hundred Acre Wood for Halloween by becoming the honey loving Pooh. This look is easy to rock with a simple red T-shirt that says "Pooh" across the front.

Get together with the Mike to your Sully (or Boo, in this case) for this cute costume. Grabbing a lime green shirt and gluing a big eyeball to the front will work perfectly for the little green monster. For Boo, just throw on a pink tee. If you can find a Sully, a light blue T-shirt with purple, construction paper spots will do just fine! Although monsters are supposed to scare, there is no doubt you and your crew will be adorable together in these incredible costumes!

Let everyone know that's none of your business with this meme costume. The shady Kermit meme has definitely stood the test of time. All you need is a large green T-shirt and a piece of felt for the collar. If you don't feel like carrying around a quote bubble along with your TEA, just write it on the shirt itself!

Not only is this costume cute, but it is also timely. In the fall, everyone has Starbucks clutched in their hands to keep warm. To complete this lewk, print out the Starbucks logo on iron-on paper and stick it to a huge white T-shirt. For added effect, draw boxes on the back of the shirt and write down your fave order!
