You don’t need to spend a fortune to look great in a costume. I show how I put together some of my best costumes and two different ways to create your own unique looks that will get you compliments AND save your wallet.

First option for creating your own best Halloween costume for less.
Find a dress or outfit you want to wear. Something that looks good but is comfortable.
Think of a fun character who wears something like that.
Adorn with inexpensive details from the character, like usual socks or bold colored hair dye.
Second option for how to make your own Halloween costume that only looks expensive.
Think of a character who resembles you. It helps if they have the same hair color or a similar wardrobe.
Put together a look from things you already have that highlights your similarities.
Adorn with inexpensive details from the character, like usual socks or bold colored hair dye. Wearing your own clothes, makeup and jewelry will cut back on costs enormously!
2020 Bonus: Pick a costume with a character who wears a mask. It can double as your mask for the evening.
If you are celebrating this year, please wear a mask. Rainbow Brite would have done it.
