10 Cheap Last Minute Halloween Costume Ideas
It’s Halloween costume crunch time! Are you still looking for the perfect ensemble and don’t have a ton of money to spend?
Well, you may already have what you need to make an awesome costume, or a cheap solution could be down the street.
Look for a costume at a Goodwill Store:
For usually under $10, you can get a $200 costume at your local Goodwill store. They usually have racks full of clothes with Halloween costume potential, including old prom dresses, wedding gowns, princess outfits, superhero costumes, scrubs, “crazy jackets,” or orange T-shirts with Halloween slogans.
Why not be a homemade “Walking Dead” zombie? All you need to do is find some of your old, loose fitting light color clothes and stain them with tea. If you have some red food coloring laying around, you could always add random blood spots.
If you go to the Halloween section in any store, you can find white foundation and a black makeup crayon tube, which is usually cheap. Apply that, then mix up some flour and spread this in spots around your face and any exposed skin on your arms and legs and hands. Use the black crayon type tube to add some darkness around your eyes and mouth.
Now throw some sticky hair spray in your hair and add some flour. It even helps if you don’t wash your hair beforehand. After all this, you’ll look pretty zombified!
Wear all white. Attach (or paint) a yellow circle on your stomach. You are an egg.
