Halloween is fast approaching, and so it’s finally time to whip out those costumes. While many people are fans of Halloween costumes, bills, rent and debt can often tighten our budget. To help you poor souls out, we put together some costumes that are quick, easy, cheap and sure to make ‘heads roll’ when you turn up at a party.
Toilet Paper Mummy
For a solid $3.50, you can chuck on a white t-shirt and shorts and wrap your self in toilet paper so that you look like a mummy. This costume is perfect if you want to wipe up any beverage spills but it can be a pain if you want to go to the loo or if drinks are spilt on you.
Chuck on a white bed sheet, cut out two eye holes and you’re done! One of the easiest costumes to make out there but also one of the most dangerous. Make sure the eye holes are big enough so you can see the floor and if there is a breeze, hold onto that bed sheet for dear life.
At some point in our lives we have all probably looked and felt like trash (esp during exam time) So why not literally become one with trash? Buy a box of trash bags and some tape and voila! The garbage bag costs a buck and this costume is completely waterproof.
Wear your favourite jersey and slather on some face paint. You can accessorise according to the sport you are a fan of (so if you love soccer put on some shin pads or if you love hockey then bring your hockey stick).
Roman Conqueror/ Conqueress
Similar to the ghost costume, if you want to be a little fancy wrap a white bed sheet around your body and make sure you secure it properly. To add that romanesque vibe, make a head wreath out of leaves strewn across your driveway and spray paint it gold if you want to look extra.
