Halloween Costumes for under $20

by vichekaim

I never bothered trying to buy a costume for Halloween because

  1. Overpriced
  2. Makes me look like wrapped ham or a pig in a blanket
  3. cheap quality/material
  4. will most likely never wear it again

So I have a solution, dig into your closet and see what you can find.


How to get the look:

  • dig through your closet and find anything that is black/green/khaki. From there, mix and match and see what works best for you.
  • go buy a camouflage cap ( you can easily find one on eBay for under $10)
  • for shoes- black boots are perfect! but  if not as long as the color of the shoes fall under the colors stated above they should do the job.
  • for the military tags, you can either go to a store like Wal-mart and buy it from those machines for dog tags or you can go extremely low budget and make it using cardboard and cutting into the shape of a dog-tag and wrap it with foil!
  • hairstyle: braid to the side


How to get the look:

  • Raid your closet for anything that is black! anything works- shoes,shirts,tanks,blazers, leggings,shorts, skirts etc.
  • buy a FBI cap and FBI badge online ( I bought both of them on eBay, came out to roughly $10)
  • you can either iron the badge to your shirt, on the left side near your chest, or you can use a safety pin to stick to your top and remove after you’re done.
  • hairstyle: tie a ponytail to a side ( look more fierce!)
