Halloween Costumes

As we step into the month of October, there are two things on everyones mind, regardless of your age: pumpkin spiced everything and Halloween.

Every year there are thousands of costumes that are bought at high end Halloween stores, and while some people might feel alright spending upwards of 50$ towards a costume, I for one do not. So what is a person suppose to do to find a great costume idea, at a great price? Here are some options:

  • Ask a friend, a coworker, or family members. Usually people store old Halloween costumes in the basement, and never want to reuse it, so there is ample opportunity to snag a great costume and jazz it up in your own way!
  • Hit up your local thrift shops. They will usually have a section of affordable costumes during the month of October (not to mention a huge variety of clothes to use to make your own costumes!)
  • Look around your house at old clothes or new clothes that you can use to DIY!
  • The dollarstore has tuns of Halloween goodies (including candy, makeup and costumes) that are a great option for a great price
Do you have any other places you would go for an affordable Halloween costume? Let us know!

Hope all you Junk Lovers have a spook-tacular Halloween!
