How to Make a Cheap, but Awesome Halloween Costume
If you're trying to get through Halloween without spending a fortune, here are three ways to spend
as little as possible.
#1.) Look Through Your Closet. This works in a couple ways. If you have young kids, they
won't know any better: Chances are, you can make SOME kind of costume for them from the
clothes you already have. You'd be surprised what might come to you . . . 70's pimp,
vampire prom queen, cheezeball '80s gym teacher, slutty librarian.
--And you can 'zombify' any outfit too, as long as you're willing to rip the clothes and cover them
with a little fake blood.
#2.) Be Creative. This kind of goes with the first one. But if you get a little clever, you don't
even NEED to raid your closet. For instance, last year I was "static cling" and just pinned a bunch of socks, hand towels and fabric sheets to my shirt. LOL. even got honorable mentions at the staff Halloween party...just sayin'....
#3.) Go to a Thrift Store. Just go NOW. By next week, there won't be much left. Obviously
you'll spend a lot less than you would at a costume shop, and if you have LITTLE kids, there
might even be a few LEGITIMATE costumes they can choose from.
