Halloween costumes on the cheap

Anne Fullerton | 29 October 2010 | 1 Comment


Trying to make a Halloween costume without a) time and b) money can be hard. Here are some suggestions for the poor and time poor that can be made from stuff you already own…

ANTOINE DODSON
aka ‘Bed Intruder Guy’

The internet may have made us a generation of easily distracted, self-absorbed man-children, but it’s also given us an infinitely wider pool of Halloween costumes to choose from.

You will need: red bandana, a wife beater, baseball bat, attitude.

DONATELLA VERSACE

You will need: fake eyelashes, fake tan, one fabulous dress, two grapefruits.

MILKY JOE
from the Mighty Boosh

halloween

You will need: a coconut, a texta, a stick.

FRIDA KAHLO

HALLOWEEN

You will need: scarf or flowers (for headpiece), mascara (for monobrow), bright printed skirt, shawl, earrings.

PAN’S LABYRINTH MONSTER

You will need: hands, a pen.

BERNIE
From ‘Weekend at Bernie’s’

halloween

You will need: circular sunglasses, moustache, ‘80s leisurewear, a friend to hold you up.

JOHNNY
From ‘The Room’

Take inspiration from Tommy Wiseau’s vanity project gone wrong. Though it might not be the most easily recognizable costume it is easily one of the creepiest.

You will need: a black wig trimmed to length, a suit, a football for recreating the most memorable scenes, the passion of Tennessee Williams.

JARETH THE GOBLIN KING
From ‘The Labyrinth’

halloween

A Bowie costume never gets old. Though this Labyrinth get up requires confidence and some sweet pins it’s a lot easier to pull off than the Ziggy Stardust era.

You will need: blonde wig or lots of hairspray, ruffled shirt, waist coat, high-waisted tights in grey, a pair of socks (for stuffing pants), boots. Accessorise with baby doll.
