Cheerleader costumes are popular choices for Halloween or other times of year. However, cheerleader costumes can be expensive and not worth the money for a one-time use. Luckily, it is easy to put together your own cheerleader costume, so you are ready for Halloween and still can save money.

Choose the colour you want. If you want your cheerleader costume to represent a certain team, you need to make your costume the colour of the team. If you have no preference and just want a costume, pick a colour you like.
Look for a shirt and skirt combination that is the same colour as the colour you want for your costume. The shirt can be a T-shirt, tank top or long-sleeve shirt. The skirt should be the same colour as your top to make the best-looking cheerleading outfit. If you are modelling your cheerleading outfit off that of an existing team, buy a shirt and skirt combination similar to that team.
Represent your team. Decide what team you are the cheerleader for and cut a letter, team name or mascot out of construction paper. Attach this to your shirt with tape or with safety pins.
Wear athletic shoes. Cheerleaders are athletic and very active during a game. In order to give the appearance that you are a cheerleader, you have to wear some form of sneakers.
Make your pom-poms. Pom-poms are essential to a cheerleader costume and can be made with construction paper. Cut pieces of construction paper into long strips and attach them to a short stick with tape to complete the costume.
Create a megaphone by rolling up a piece of paper into a cone. Tape the paper to together and you will have a megaphone.
