submitted on October 29, 2010 by mooncow728 in "Member's Lounge"
While putting together a Halloween costume can be tons of fun, it can also be creatively challenging and tough on your wallet, especially if you’re trying to outfit multiple family members for the holiday. So, to take the stress out of trick-or-treat planning, read on for a re-cap of 30 easy-to-assemble ideas, many of which are comprised entirely of goods that you probably already have lurking around the house. And if you’ve any thoughts to add to this list, by all means chime in here!

Some of my favorites:

6. Present: Cardboard box (that’s big enough for you to fit into!), wrapping paper, ribbons/bows

7. Where’s Waldo: Red and white striped tee, beanie, eye glasses, jeans

8. Cotton Candy: White clothes, pink tulle, safety pins

9. Ghost: White sheet (plus cutouts for your eyes)

11. Dr. Pepper: Lab coat, peppers, safety pins

14. Static Cling: All black or white clothes; random clothes (socks, briefs, tees) and dryer sheets, safety pins

28. Dry cleaning: Plastic dry cleaning bag (just slip it over any outfit)

      Those are pretty good! I like in the comments some writes:
      well….dress regularly and attach a leaf to a hat…when someone asks, tell them you are a leaf blower and blow the leaf

      Seems like something stupid I would do hehe.

    Funny! We put together Noah's "Link" costume from scratch. All we bought was a cheap blonde spiked wig and my husband made a sword identical to the one he used in Zelda and he's wearing my short blue jacket w/some felt pinned in the correct places and a pair of my green capris. It really looks great and he won his classes costume contest today! I even let him cut the tips off some old black gloves of mine. He ended up looking just like the pic & we paid only $10!
