Using emojis in your texts is a great way to take your iMessages from basic to brilliant. How else will someone know your true feelings without the inclusion of a little man running away from a piece of cake or a smiling swirl of poop standing next to a saxophone? What a world we live in! Emojis are one of the most amazing technological advances in this modern world, and so to honor that fact, we have created a DIY guide on how to dress as your favorite emoji for Halloween!
DIY Dancing Twins Emoji Costume
These two little gals are definitely a fan favorite of texters around the world. Are they ballerinas? Are they cats? Are they both? Does it matter? Just focus on how cute and happy they are to be side-by-side.

DIY Three Monkeys Emoji Costume
See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil. These three little monkeys look like they are getting into some trouble! This is SUCH a perfect group costume idea for you and your two friends - and take our word for it, those costumes are really comfy. If you're out and about on Halloween night, however, just be prepared to stop and do these poses about a million times.

DIY Pink Shirt Girl Emoji Costume
The infamous pink shirt girl! She's always ready to help you express any situation you're in, via emoticon. While the floating arms giving a face massage might be hard to replicate in a real life setting (we couldn’t resist!), the others should be a cinch! The scissors effect was done with some fishing line. However, we maybe don’t recommend going to a party wielding such a dangerous item!
You can choose to go solo and be a single pink shirt girl with a whole array of hand movements in your repertoire, or get a bunch of ladies together for an easy and cute group costume. Ta-da!

DIY Bride, Cat, and Princess Emoji Costumes
Not into the pink tee? We have a few more options for you. Princess girl doesn’t look too pleased to be royalty (maybe someone texted her the poop emoji?), but the heart-eyes cat is definitely feeling good. We used some liquid eyeliner to draw on the whiskers for the kitty and borrowed the ears headband from a Garfield costume.

DIY Salsa Dancing Emoji Costume
To dress as the sassy salsa dancer emoji, you just have to find everything red in your closet. This senorita dress we used is pretty much a perfect fit – after that, slip into some red heels and apply your brightest red lipstick. Hey! Maybe find those two girls in the black leotards and hit the club.

DIY Bomb and Collision Emoji Costume
This costume is extra fantastic because it knocks out two emojis in one look – the bomb AND the explosion. Just because this emoji is an inanimate object doesn’t mean you can’t embody it on Halloween.

The above examples not doin' it for you? That’s ok – there are hundreds more options available. You just have to get a little bit creative as you peruse your emoji keyboard. For example, there’s a whole section for food! Imagine a whole group of you and your friends dressed as fruit or desserts. Here are a few more ideas that we think would be a hit. (We also included that little puppy in a jockey costume in case you take your pet trick-or-treating this year. Arf!)
