Christmas is only a few months away and you can already hear the cheerful sound in the air, but before we go into the details on how our Christmas trees will look like, you’d still have to worry over your Halloween costume. Will you pull on that old white blanket to look like Casper’s naughty buddies, or will you finally get that glittering fairy costume that is sure to make everyone ask you for fairy dust?
But the more important question would be, how much would you spend for this day—or should I say night?
The Ultimate Halloween Outfit
Apparently, the largest part of the cost for Halloween is the costumes. Yes, aside from masquerade balls or other costume parties (which are often kiddie parties), Halloween is the one time where you can choose to either envelope your shyness and still look stunning as you don the mask of Zorro, or you can wear something as flashing as Wonder Woman’s sexy outfit. This is the time when you only have to worry that you’ll look like an idiot of you wear your common jeans and shirt (hey, even with that, if you put on your hair like Son Goku or Bulma or some other anime character, you’d still be in!). And of course, all of this is just for one night only. So, are you going to splurge all your savings for “The Ultimate Halloween Outfit”?
Save More; Spend Less This Halloween
It is very much wiser if you don’t, to save yourself from financial regret later on. Actually, you can save a lot from spending your bucks over costumes if you design and create them yourself. With just a few materials and your vast imaginative mind, you can still look like Halloween’s fashion goddess. Rummage through your old stuff, get that old but still cute looking cheer-leading skirt you got, and then pair it with a collared blouse with a blue ribbon at the collar. Artistically spread some fake gems on a headband, and viola! You have a Sailormoon outfit. For a guy, you can use granny’s old dark blanket as a cape if you want to look like the gorgeous blood-sucking Count Dracula. Just make sure that you’ve asked permission first. Or you can spread the evil laugh around by dressing up as Joker, with that wide lipstick smudge on the face.
Really, all it takes is just a creative inspiration, and then you’re ready to a terrifyingly fun Halloween.
