Free or Cheap Halloween Costumes

Posted on 10/07/2008

It’s ok to hand out chocolate bars and lollypops in celebration of Halloween, but before you hand over lots of cash for the perfect costume read these tips. There are plenty of ways to use creativity instead of credit cards to create a great Halloween get-up. And with a few exclusive coupons, that costume will be way scarier than your bill.

Spirit Halloween
For 25 years Spirit Halloween has been dressing people up like sexy pirates and ketchup bottles. There are plenty of ways to cut your costume costs with Spirit Halloween coupon codes. From now through Halloween, take 20% off any one item with code SPAF20P. Or, take 10% off your entire order with the coupon code SPAF10P. Spirit Halloween is also offering free shipping on orders over $75. But hurry—that offer is only good through October 8. pegs itself as the web’s most popular costume store. It’s where a girl can achieve her dream of becoming a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader or a guy can finally become that character from Halo 3 he’s so obsessed with. And lucky for you, that costume won’t cost you as much money with this special coupon code. Use the code BARGAIN to receive 10% off your order of $50 or more. It’s good through Halloween and does not apply to shipping or tax charges.

Swap Costumes
Nobody likes being the same character every Halloween. Try swapping costumes with a friend. Or search the web for costume exchanges in your area. This is a great way to shake up your costume wardrobe without spending a penny.

Hit the Thrift Store
Combine the sometimes random collection of clothing at your local thrift store with a little creativity and you can walk out with a great costume at a really great price. Here are some ideas to get those creative juices flowing: grab a plaid shirt and overalls to become a farmer. Try on that puffy prom dress and wear a sash announcing your title as Pork Princess 1984. Cut a hole in the bottom of a laundry basket so it fits around your waist, throw in some thrift store shirts and you are a basket of dirty laundry.

Search your Closet
Chances are your own closet holds some costume options. Throw on a trendy outfit, plaster your bangs with hairspray so they’re standing straight up and now you’re Mary from Something About Mary. Or slip on some leather sandals, grab a sheet and wear it as a toga. The secret to a great free costume is creativity.
