10 Costume Ideas and the BEST Secret for Pulling Them Together
Still asking yourself that elusive question, “What should I be for Halloween?” Though this annual fright fest doesn’t hit our calendars for another 10 days, for many, the parties kick off this weekend. If you’re scrambling to pull together a costume, you probably have a few criteria in mind: fast, cheap, cute, and easy.
Chances are there a few options you’ve considered and ruled out at this point:
Halloween Stores: They have tons of costumes BUT these always seems overused and overpriced
Goodwill: Cheap but not always the cutest of costumes
DIY: This always seems like a good idea until you start then realize it’s going to take 10x as long as you expected.
No need to worry because we’re letting you in on a little secret we’ve discovered. There are only two places you need to look for all of your costume needs: Forever 21 and American Apparel. Between these two stores you can piece together any costume you dream up and, best of all, it will be fast, cheap, cute and easy!
