Halloween is arguably one of the most fun and creative holidays and is undoubtedly looked forward to every year. What makes Halloween so much fun, though? Yes, the candy is a plus, but the costumes are the highlight of this holiday.
Everyone wants a costume that makes them look good, feel good and can occasionally provoke a little laughter on the side. Here are some tricks and treats for looking perfectly spooky this Halloween.
Thrift, thrift, thrift
No one wants to spend a haunting amount of money on an outfit they will wear once, unless it is their wedding day. Goodwill, Plato’s Closet and more thrift stores have many reusable costumes, or items that can be turned into a trendy costume.
Raid your closet
Repurpose, repurpose, repurpose. Those old clothes that haven’t seen the light of day since 2013 can be cut, pinned and used for inspiration. Plus, they cost nothing, well at least anymore and would appreciate being shown off again in an entire new light. Household items can also be a huge help.
Please do not offend anyone, just a friendly reminder. No one’s culture, ethnicity or trauma is a costume. It is serious, personal and should be treated as such. There are an abundance of costumes out there that are not rude, utilize that.
With the above being said, do some research. Most of the best costumes are made out of pop culture or meme references. Why? Because they are original and everyone can relate. Plus, who wouldn’t love a little bit of laughter?
Pinterest saves lives
Can’t think of anything? Well, then hit up Pinterest. Go to that search bar, search whichever kind of costume is inspiring and two hours later there will be an abyss of suggestions that are chalk full of cute, fun or spooky costumes waiting to be worn.
