I’ve been on the search for some cute, cheap, Halloween costumes this year.
I have had so many other costly projects lined up this past year, that I’ve put myself on a holiday spending budget.
So below are some ideas that I think are really fun, and all you need to do is add a little make up and accessories!
Who remembers wearing a poncho as a kid? I know I’m sharing my age right now, but thank goodness they’re back.
As much as I love dressing up for Halloween, sometimes these costumes are really itchy and uncomfortable.
So, a costume T-shirt with simple added accessories is a perfect fit for anyone who wants to celebrate the holiday but be comfy. This Mini Mouse set is available at Walmart!
I love when my hubby dresses up for Halloween with me, but he likes to keep his costumes simple. So costume kits, like the Hippie one above is a great idea. There are a ton of varieties on Amazon.
Work Wear Cardigans, Dresses, And Tunics
Yes….I do dress up at work, and boy have we come along way with choices. Check out some cool Halloween work wear ideas that are super duper cheap!
LOVE me a cardigan! Covers my butt, and looks cute with jeans or leggings.
Or you could get a Halloween Tunic, like this one available at RoseGal.
And finally, how about a Halloween dress. I especially like the vintage style dresses like these below:
These are just a few Halloween costume ideas that are budget friendly.
I would also invite you to check out my SPOOKTACULAR page on Amazon for more decor, party, and costume ideas for everyone.
Have you ever taken a stroll down memory lane and looked at your past Halloween costumes? Well, I thought that I would take the scary plunge and share some of my crazy, frightful, and goofy moments in time below.

My Babe and Me in 1993!
My hubby and I spent our first Halloween party together in 1993, and we decided to dress up as each other. I did my best to transform him into a beautiful lady with make-up, long, painted, finger nails, and panty hose. All I remember is how silly we looked, and we both laughed our butts off whenever he had to go to the bathroom.
Pink And Me in 2009
This one just cracks me up, because I can clearly remember those fake eye lashes making me want to scratch my eyes out from itching so much!
But, oh how I loved my long, hot pink hair, and bling! Also, the glittery sweater and skirt was an outfit that I saved from my grandmother.
Heck, my “Grams” didn’t realize what a diva she really was.
Pirate Mates in 2012
I’m truly blessed to have a soul mate, that’s just as silly as I am, and willing to put himself out there for the whole world to see.
I really enjoyed putting the pirate inspired make-up on the two of us spooky pirates, and I thought we looked like brothers.
Batty Me in 2013
I chose to go a little Bat-Glam with this cute black, bat, choker and the brightest Halloween orange top I could find.
I work in a medical office during the day, and this paired really well with my black scrub pants. 🙂
Geek Girl Daughter in 2011
And finally, I had to share my daughter’s Geek Girl costume from 2011.
Every time I see this, it makes me chuckle, because she really played her part well. Except, the finger up her nose is kind of gross.
I hope you liked some of my Halloween pictures through the years, and I only wish that I would have had more from my childhood.
It’s really kind of cool that we can take a picture, and share it instantly with our family and friends.
In fact, all the pictures above were ones that had been posted by me or others on Facebook and Instagram.
I then noticed that I’ve been on FB since 2008, and I can literally see a slide show of my family & friends grow up through the years.
It really is kind of special, and I hope that you all of a safe and spooktacular Halloween week and night.
