Blend with white on your lips to further add to the ghostly effect.
For the ladies, the princess costume is both an easy and budget-friendly Halloween costume. Secondhand shops and consignment stores often sell inexpensive, outdated gowns that can be paired with a store-bought tiara. Viola! Instant princess!
The ninja costume is a versatile costume for men, women, teenagers and children. All you need to pull it off is a pair of loose-fitting black pants, a black turtleneck and a black T-shirt for the mask.
Making a ninja mask is easy. Do it using the following steps:
Pull the T-shirt over your head, letting it rest on top of your nose. Pull the back half of the shirt over your head like a hood. Gather all loose parts of the shirt and tie them. Any remaining folds should be tucked into your turtleneck.
Pair this costume with a katana blade, throwing stars or sai knives and you’re set to go!
With the popularity of AMC’s, “The Walking Dead” zombies are in style. They’re also an easy costume. You can use your own clothes. The only thing you’ll need to purchase is the make-up kit. The clothing you decide to wear will be up to your imagination. Where were you and what were you doing when you were “turned”?
Get into those clothes and rumple them up. Then, add the make-up and blood and you’re dressed to scare.
No matter what budget-friendly Halloween costume you choose, you can have fun without breaking the bank.
