The Definitive Guide to Cheap and Easy Halloween Costumes
Photo by Monica Fuentes.
Not everyone is a procrastinator. We're sure there's a perfectly good reason that you need a costume 48 hours out from Halloween night. Maybe you got a last minute invite to a costume party. Maybe your original plans that didn't involve costumes fell through and your backup plan involves you dressing up. Maybe you're a last minute trick-or-treat chaperone. These things happen.
Whatever the reason, if you don't have a costume and you're looking for cheap inspiration that you can throw together with minimal effort you're in the right place. We here at the Houston Press have spent the last few years becoming experts at the fast, cheap costume.
Check out the following lists, and have a happy Halloween!
