September 27, 2018 | By Mason Roberts

If you are like the majority of people, you wait until the last minute to prepare for the holidays. Don’t worry, that’s normal. With Christmas coming, Halloween is often just not in the budget. If you’re invited to a party and just don't have the time or money to spend on creating a costume, don’t stress. We will give you some cheap and easy ways to make a Halloween costume without breaking the bank.


This costume is perfect for the procrastinator. You may even have some of the supplies laying around your home from old costumes that you can use. Grab a black and white striped shirt to begin. You can wear pants and tear the bottoms to make them look worn and old. Just strap on an eye patch and you’re ready to go!


If you enjoy the gory part of Halloween, this is a great option. All you need is some white clothes and medical gauze. Wrap yourself up and you’re set. You can even add some “dirt” with Halloween makeup for the added aged effect.


The robber costume is very similar to the pirate. All you need is a black and white striped shirt and a beanie hat with eye holes cut out of it. For added criminal effect, make a money bag to carry around with you!


If you do not like to get dressed up for Halloween, but have a Halloween party to attend, this is perfect for you. For a masquerade costume, you can just wear formal clothing. Put together an outfit that you already own. All you need to buy is the mask to create this mysterious look.

Risky Business

If you have ever seen the movie Risky Business, you know exactly what costume this is. One of the most famous scenes in this movie entails the characters wearing oversized button-down shirts with tube socks and sunglasses. These are items you most likely own already and won’t cost you a dime.

Marathon Winner

If you’re an active person that has some workout clothing, this is a good costume for you. Wear some of your short shorts, a tank top, and sneakers. The last piece to this costume is writing some numbers on a white piece of paper to pin to your top. To add some humor to the costume, wear a sweatband around your head. Maybe even an 80’s workout curly wig.

Kissing Booth

This costume is perfect for both men and women. It is clever, and can even steal you a few smooches. The supplies needed for this costume are: poster board paper and some markers. Start by cutting a hole in the top half of the poster board. On the bottom half of the board, write “Kissing Booth 25 cents.” You can wear any outfit to go with your booth. For some extra laughs, you can put kiss-marks on your cheeks with lipstick!

If you simply do not have the extra cash, you may want to look into taking out a loan. Do a search online for “title loan.” A title loan can assist you in getting together the perfect costume, and preparing for the coming holidays.
