Fun and cheap costume ideas for all ages
Halloween is just around the corner. Going to the store and buying a brand new costume is convenient, but can be expensive. There are many ways you can have an awesome easy Halloween costume without the price tag.
In Portland, even our Goodwill stores can be expensive. Before you head out to your nearest Halloween shop or thrift store, see what cool costume apparel you may have in your own closet. Here’s some inspiration to get you in the costume mood.
Household items such as an old t-shirt, toilet paper or boom box can be transformed into a memorable outfit this Halloween. Ask your relatives or friends if you can borrow some clothes, such as an old prom dress or a fun bow tie. I would even go as far as checking in with some of your co-workers. It’s always fun to talk costume ideas in the break room.
