Best Make-Your-Own Halloween Costumes

I hope that everyone enjoyed their Halloween this year – delicious candy, fun costumes and lots of partying!

In my opinion, my favorite party of the holiday is dressing-up. Rather than purchasing a costume at the store where everyone buys the same thing, it’s an opportunity for you to bring out your creativity, while being cost-effective.

Inspired by the Britney Spears “Circus” music video, this year, I decided to be a circus ringleader. I put together my outfit with my mother’s vintage red blazer, along with clothing already in my closet. To add the finishing touches, I purchased a few items, which came to less than $30.

Making your own costume is not only fun but gives you the opportunity to express yourself in ways that you only imagined about.

Check out the NY Times blog Daily Green’s list of unique Halloween costumes using recyclable materials on a low budget. The best one on the list? The hamburger dress costume – doesn’t it make you want to order one?
