7 Halloween Costumes You Can Make on a BudgetOctober 30, 2020
Halloween is here at last. The problem is that the older you get, the harder it is to find the perfect costume without breaking the bank. Don’t worry, though, because we’ve got you covered. Here’s a list of easy costumes that will keep your bank account intact and your budget on track.
We said we had you covered, but you didn’t think we meant it literally. A ghost is the ultimate last-minute costume that you can put together on a budget. All that’s required are a white sheet and scissors.
However, the ghost costume is not without its drawbacks. If you’re covered by a sheet, you may have trouble moving at any pace faster than a walk. In any case, this costume is easy, quick, and incredibly low-budget. Perfect for someone who forgot that Halloween was coming up.
Snag some ears, face paint and black clothes, and your costume is done! You can probably even find someone who dressed as a cat last year and borrow their costume. It’s popular for a reason. Few costumes are cheaper and easier to put together than the simple, effective cat costume.
Another easy costume: Waldo. Requiring a few simple pieces, including a red and white shirt, beanie, and your favorite pair of jeans, Waldo couldn’t be an easier costume to put together. It’s also one of the most comfortable Halloween costumes you can wear!
If you’re not feeling the plain old Waldo, you’re in luck. There are a dozen other Waldos you can dress up as. You could be Odlaw, Waldo’s nefarious twin, or Wenda, Waldo’s current girlfriend. Dig a little deeper into the Waldo lore, and you could dress as Wizard Whitebeard, the wizard that allows Waldo and his friends to travel to far-off lands. All these make great conversation starters, and they’re equally easy, still requiring just a striped shirt, beanie, and jeans.
There’s lots of space to maneuver with this one. All you’ll need are gloves, a robe and some athletic shorts. You might even have the pieces already!
A bonus of dressing as a boxer is that there are so many famous boxing movies to choose from, with a dozen Rocky movies alone. If you felt like it, you could go through years of Halloweens without changing from the Rocky universe.
There’s no denying, a mime costume is a fun way to dress up that’s also easy on your wallet. You’re basically Waldo with face make-up. To top it all off, everyone is sure to be amazed by your pantomime skills.
Dressing as Bob Ross is a great way to create a fun costume without breaking the bank. Get your wig out, your double denim, your beard and your palette. It doesn’t matter if you don’t look like Bob Ross. As he would say, there are no mistakes.
There are hundreds of other fantastic and affordable costumes out there, and these are only the tip of the iceberg. If you’re looking for a few more ways to avoid breaking the bank, consider student loan refinancing.
