Halloween Costume Ideas on a Budget

Halloween Costume Ideas for Groups

deadly sins

The Seven Deadly Sins.  This costume is cheap and easy. Get six friends to go as the other deadly sins: greed, envy, wrath, gluttony, pride and lust. Choose sloth because it’s the cheapest costume of the seven sins. All you have to do is not wash your hair for two days, roll out of bed in your PJs and you’re are set!
Total cost: $0, depending on how sinful you’re are willing to get.

1970s Television Family. There are so many great ones to choose from: the Partridge Family, Brady Bunch, Evan’s family (from “Good Times”), Donny and Marie Osmond, and the Jefferson’s. The family you choose depends on the make-up of your group of friends, but putting together the outfits is almost as much fun as the actual Halloween event itself. Make a date and head straight to your local thrift store, or your parent’s closet.
Total cost: $20.00 and up, depending on how dy-no-mite you want to be.

Silver Screen actress. Take your sexiest black dress, paint the your uncovered skin that would show in it silver (silver- colored hairspray works great), spray your hair black, and only wear only black and white accessories. Definitely stand out in a crowd, while still looking FABULOUS!!

Smurfette and Gargamelle. Last year my boyfriend and I were the “budget” Smurfette and Gargamelle. I wore a plain white dress (Job Lot or nurse uniform store for $3) and wore a blue turtleneck and blue tights under it. Then I cut a sleeve from an old white turtleneck, tied the end, stuffed it with toilet paper, and it that was my hat. I painted my face blue. and the only expensive thing was the blond wig, because I have dark hair. My beau wore a long black dress, put pulled red soccer socks over his sneakers, got a cat stuffed animal toy and a net, and we was were good to go!

    7 deadly sins:

    Lust: Tshirt cropped and tied as microtank, no bra, “L U S T” emblazoned on it, hair undone, micromini skirt,lipstick smeared “like that”, high heels. Expensively cheap.

    Sloth was already described. Keep with tshirt idea.

    Vanity: mannequin-like apparel. Use button up shirt and emblazon “Vanity” in script on breast pocket of shirt, rather than tshirt. Or emblazon it across shoulders.

    Wrath: Tshirt, “Wrath”. Jeans. Lots of bruises. Cast on fist. Brass knuckles.

    Avarice: tons of bling. Suitjacket and tux apparel. “My Name Is” tag with “Avarice” on it. Highly visible cell phone, etc.

    Gluttony: fat suit, Tshirt, “Gluttony”. Baby oil over all surfaces of skin.

    Envy: find a pop culture icon, and *be* that pop culture icon, incorporate “Envy” into the shirt.

    Done. Crew of seven are ready for the floor.

    I dressed up as a mime last year. Striped t-shirt, blank pants, black beret, face paint. The easiest part was to put the outfit together, the hardist was to be mute for the day.

    Total cost: -$10 to $10, depending on how good your miming act is.

    Halloween is the best holiday for the frugal creative types. So much fun coming up with a costume when you can’t afford a pre-made one.

    My friends and I were unique pageant queens one year:

    Miss Spell (scepter with a lot of misspelled words on it: kute, peece, luv, etc.)
    Miss Direction (scepter with arrows pointing all different directions)
    Miss Fortune (Magic 8 Ball, tarot cards)

    There are a number of possibilities! We all wore old bridesmaids dresses.
