Sometimes Halloween costumes can get a bit pricey. There’s nothing wrong with going all out, I mean it’s only once a year, but sometimes you just don’t have the coin. So I thought I’d share some ideas that you could potentially pull right out of your closet or get at a thrift store and be good to ghoul. See what I did there? Okay I’ll stop now.
This was me a few years ago. It was my oldest’s first Halloween and I was so focused on his costume that I hadn’t planned anything for myself. So I literally pulled all this stuff out of my closet and put on some heavy makeup and voila! Didn’t cost me a thing.
For this one you can just get an old wedding dress from the thrift store and rough it up. Get some cheap Halloween makeup at your local drugstore and make yourself gross. Super easy and super cheap.
Again, you could probably find all these pieces of clothing at a thrift store. You might have to spring for some colored extensions but you can get those for cheap at the dollar store. Some of you may already have these clothes hidden away in storage from your teenage punk phase back in highschool.
Fellas all you need is a hockey mask for this one. Take some old clothes you don’t care about and tear them up or get some from the thrift store and do the same. Grab a fake machete and you’re set.
I hope everyone has a fun Halloween this year, I can’t believe we’re only a week away. I love Halloween and I love to make it last all of October.
What will you be dressing up as this year?
