8 Easy Halloween Costumes On A Budget Because We Know The Struggle Is Real

FYI to those who State Once You’re an adult: I’m, and I’m 25 years old Halloween gets Older Here for this. Snacking on leftover candy bars (or, you know, picking from the extra bag I purchased for myself), light jack-o-lanterns, watching on repeat — I am obsessed with it all. While I will undoubtedly be that person to splurge on house decor that is creepy to provide trick-or-treaters a show once I have my own home, I am also that person who won’t pay the big bucks for something I will only wear once. Say what you want, but rocking easy Halloween costumes on a budget is the way to go if you are low on cash.

Naturally, the first place I visit for costume inspiration is media that is social. The thousands and thousands of pages lavish, intricately designed costumes on Pinterest and Instagram are a goldmine of ideas to mooch from, if your prom dress prices not more than an exact replica, but do not be surprised. OK, I am exaggerating, but the very fact that so many Halloween costumes go for well over $50 (and even On the cheaper side of things) is disgusting. And do not even get my started on costume makeup. You are better off using your own.

Check these eight easy-to-make Halloween costumes out to get your creative juices flowing and save a bit of cash in the process.

1. Regina George

If you are a  fanatic, you know Regina George is perfect, and this costume is super simple to recreate.

In the minimum, you probably have a bra and a white tank top that is plain. Take your tank top and cut on one hole out throwing it on your most bra, and set the combo with a dark mini-skirt and apartments.

So bring!

2. Cactus

You do need a green dress to pull it off, as cute as this cactus costume is. Scout out the cheapest olive tee it is possible to find (this one from Forever21, as an example), and get blindsided by way of super-gluing thin parts of white yarn into the fabric.

Should you want your cactus to flower, throw your hair in a high top knot, and secure with a lot of vibrant, floral hair clips.

3. Social Butterfly

Because your costume is cheap, that doesn’t mean it can not be creative.

Gabbie Hanna is all about Halloween costumes that are affordable and cute. Deer God! Toga-antler ensemble, to eccentric puppet makeup, her Youtube station has an array of playful costumes to pick from, but this one is my favourite.

The first portion of this movie moves into Gabbie’s makeup search for the interpretation of what a social butterfly may be, but frankly, if sparkles and rainbow aren’t your scene, you can totally eliminate your style.

The main attraction is going to be a set of wings you can purchase from any costume store for under $10 (Amazon comes from clutch with this set). To get the whole “rdquo & societal ; part across, print out and glue social media stamps all.

4. Doe, A Deer

That I could roll with this, although I am not really certain if dressing up as a deer for Halloween was considered fantastical and adorable.

Angela Lanter’s last-minute costume’s best aspect here is that it really requires makeup products you probably already have in your own collection. Add a pair of jeans and a brownish sweater, and you are set for celebrations, trick-or-treating, or binge-watching scary pictures with friends.

5. Waldo

Rather than partying it up this Halloween, challenge your friends to a game of hide and seek. Odds are, they’ll never find you when you are half as great of a hider as this seek-and-find puzzle character.

Add a red and white striped shirt to your favourite pair of denim skinnies, a beanie cap, and faux eyeglasses.

Professional tip: If you want to get Thrifty, draw on rims that are thick with pencil eyeliner.

6. Wednesday Adams

Wednesday Adams might be the easiest Halloween costume for women to replicate because all you really have to do is throw together an all-black-everything outfit (and for many of us, let’s be real, that is already our everyday look as it is).

Stone a sexy LBD, but also make it frightening with a set of matching red red lipstick to lure your sufferers heels, and black tights — err, I mean friends.

Bonus points if you can accessorize with a skull head or bottle of poison to sip on throughout the night. Parties have a rule right?

7. Scarecrow

Scarecrows are just another Halloween costume which take five minutes to throw.

Have a flannel available? Put it on and dig into your makeup bag for dark eyeliner and orange eyeshadow to draw and fill in stitching details on eyes, mouth, and your own own nose.

8. The Undead

This tutorial is from way back in 2014, but I needed to share it here since it was good.

There’s really no right or wrong way. Take a classic tank top, rip it up, basically, and poke through some holes aim to look as disheveled. As for makeup, dark and red eyeshadow sunglasses and black eyeliner are going to be your go-to.

Want inspiration? Envision yourself the most exhausted you been without a drop of coffee to help save you. What is that for the living dead?
