Whether you are handing out candy with your grandma or dressing up for fun with your roommates, having a good Halloween costume doe not have to be hard or expensive. Here are a few ideas to get some laughs and not spend a fortune this Halloween.
The Hunters & The Hunted
Perfect for a duo or group costume. Grab some camo from your closet, or a cheap camo shirt from Walmart and pose as a hunter this Halloween. For extra fun, have someone dress as a deer. Use an eyeliner pencil to create the facial features of a deer and then buy a pair of $1 antlers at Walmart (or make your own!).
This one is guaranteed to get a few laughs. Grab a bag of Smarty’s candy from your local store and tape them to your choice of pants.
If you are looking for a spookier option, a witch is an easy classic. Rock some all black and pop on a cheap witch hat and prepare to get spooky.
A classic college costume, rockstars are a fun, simple way to dress up for Halloween. Grab your favorite band tee or purchase a band tee from Walmart (about $10) and pick your favorite pair of slashed up jeans. To make the costume your own, add in face makeup or accessories.
Group your dad’s Polo shirt, khaki shorts and snapback to become an offical frat boy. Do not forget to add the sunglasses to complete the look.
M & M’s
For this costume all you need is a colored tee and matching socks. This costume is great if you and your group of friends want to match.
A final easy option is tourists. Break out those fanny packs from your mom’s closet, pop on some sunglasses, a Hawaiian shirt and a bucket hat and you are good to go.
