As much as I love spooky season, there are a few gripes I have each year. Finding a costume is hard enough on its own, but factors like 1.) trying to save money, 2.) finding a costume that doesn't require a lot of effort, and 3.) finding pieces that I'll be able to wear on other occasions so I don't feel as guilty about spending my dollars all result in piles of stress once October rolls around.
If you can relate to these inner turmoils, I'm here to say, "I hear you, and don't worry, because I've got your back." After scouring the interweb for costume ideas and Amazon for shop-worthy finds, I've rounded up some easy, affordable costume ideas that won't cause your wallet to cry.
Each costume idea only requires you to purchase one item, and you'll most likely be able to find the other components in your closet. These finds are also all under $25 each, so you won't have to shell out the big bucks just to participate in the spooky festivities this year. Not to mention, many of these products, such as this plush robe, this skater skirt, and even this duct tape can be worn or used in your everyday life, so you get the most value out of your purchase.
While Halloween is full of scary things, you won't have to fear finding an easy costume that checks all the boxes, including creativity. We promise this isn't just hocus pocus, so read on!
Ken From Barbie Costume
The Barbie movie will probably serve as one of the most popular sources of inspo for this year's cohort of Halloween costumes. If you want to hop on the bandwagon while still bringing your own unique twist, you can write "I am Kenough" on this tie-dye hoodie for an easy yet accurate costume.
Turkey Head Costume
The Friends Thanksgiving episodes are each iconic in their own right, but perhaps one of the most memorable moments was when Joey gets his head stuck in a turkey (honorable mention to when Monica wears it later on in the episode — voluntarily). Now, you can do the same for Halloween with this turkey hat, minus all the stress of getting your head back out at the end of the night.
The Dude From The Big Lebowski Costume
This Halloween, you can look as if you rolled straight out of bed, and it can pass as a legit Halloween costume. Wear this plush robe along with a white or gray t-shirt, black or dark plaid shorts, and black sunglasses, and voilà! You're Jeff "The Dude" Lebowski from The Big Lebowski.
