Almost everyone loves dressing up in a costume for Halloween, but it can be expensive and time consuming to find the right Halloween costume at the right price.
One of the ways to save money on costumes is going to your local thrift store and searching through their aisles of forgotten clothing and accessories. This can take some time and creativity, and you need to be flexible and open-minded about you costume. However, if you can find your costume at a thrift store you are likely to save save money.
Another option is to go to your local Halloween costume store. These stores usually have thousands of prepackaged costumes, decorations, and accessories. The downside is usually the price is marked up significantly, and if you want until a couple days before Halloween there is a good chance a lot of the costumes will be picked over, and all that will be left is the costumes no one else wanted. Also you have to deal with fighting the crowd which can get crazy around Halloween, especially on the weekends in October.
A third option is to order your Halloween costume online at one of several online stores the sell discount costumes. They usually have the same costumes as your local Halloween costume store, but the prices are often lower. You also get the convenience of shopping from home and having the costume shipped directly you.
Wherever you decide to get you Halloween costume at this year, just remember to have fun and be safe. Happy Halloween!
