Halloween has finally neared once again and that means that there are tons of people who will be celebrating this day of dressing up and wearing face paint, and getting down at the many parties that take place. This year, with the holiday falling on Sunday the 31st, you can bet that most people will be heading out to parties on the day prior, Saturday the 30th. I have a good mind to think – much like many other Halloweens in the past – that there will be both a mixture of great costumes as well as some horrible ones that reflect that a person does not either care about this holiday, they didn’t want to spend too much money, or they just copped out on the Halloween costume this year. In case you are wondering, I totally copped out for the Halloween party I plan on attending. And I don’t feel bad about it all. So what follows are the top five Halloween costume cop-outs. If you guessed that I am going dressed as the first one on this list, you get a spooky gold star.
- The vampire teeth and eyeliner costume. This one is so easy. I got myself a pair of teeth at a Halloween store for about twenty dollars. Some black skinny jeans, a dark black top and some eyeliner completes this $20 Halloween costume.
- The homeless person. We all have some torn up and damaged clothing in our wardrobes. I usually wear these when I am doing my yard work. All you need to do is add some face paint to make it look like you are a vagabond, and you are set. Estimated cost: $5.
- The hippie. Hit up any K-mart near you and purchase a really cheap and cheesy, tie-dyed shirt. Add a long hair wig and headband, and some bell-bottomed jeans, and you are good to go. Estimated cost: $10-$30.
