Just in case you’re counting there’s 15 days left until Halloween. Did I mention how much I love Halloween? There’s something about getting to be in character for a night and mostly I love the creativity of putting together a costume.Do you still dress up for the holiday? Maybe to go trick-or-treating with the kids or get in the spirit while giving out candy? There’s nothing like a great halloween house party.
You can just go out and buy a costume but a) it will probably cost you a bunch of money and b) it’s no fun. I’ve pulled together looks for 8 great halloween costume ideas that you can likely pull together from your own closet or at your local thrift shop. Don’t hold it against me but I think some of these ideas may give away my age.
All those great ideas are for you my creative & resourceful readers. As for myself, I’m going as a mermaid. It’s a costume I’ve wanted to pull off for years and I’m going to make it happen this year. I have all my thrift shop treasures and now I just need to rip them all apart and make them into a whole new under the sea (PG Rated) masterpiece. Stay tuned for the results.
