Halloween is just around the corner! If you have Halloween parties you’re planning to attend, you’re probably starting to think about costumes. Buying a Halloween costume can be notoriously expensive. Even if you’re trying to get out of debt and stick to a budget, you can still have a fabulous Halloween costume! We have 5 cheap Halloween costume ideas for you. All you need is a black dress and some accessories, most of which you probably have in your closet already!
1. Audrey Hepburn
For this costume, besides a little black dress, you’ll need some pearl necklaces, sparkly earrings, and black gloves. You can also find plenty of hair tutorials on YouTube for Audrey Hepburn’s iconic bun.
This is probably the most obvious of our cheap Halloween costume ideas, but you can never go wrong with a witch. Any black dress will work, and you’ll just need a pointy hat and possibly some green face paint. Bonus points if you bring a broom as a prop!
3. Black Cat
A black cat is another classic Halloween costume that is also relatively easy. If you can find a headband with cat ears and something to use as a tail, you’re done! Just use some eyeliner to draw whiskers on your face, and you’re ready to prowl the neighborhood.
4. Wednesday Addams
All you need is a long-sleeved black dress with a white collared shirt underneath it for a Wednesday Addams costume. Of course, you’ll need to do your hair in two braids and throw on some knee-high socks too.
This costume requires a little bit of DIY skill. Any black dress will work as long as you put a cape over it, but for the horns, you’ll most likely need to make them yourself. You can find ideas on Pinterest or YouTube.
You can have fun and look fantastic this Halloween without racking up credit card debt on a flashy costume. With a black dress and some creativity, you can stick to your budget and still be the coolest witch in town!
