Uh oh. Halloween’s around the corner and you still don’t have any Halloween costumes for your family.
We love the affordable, easy, and do-it-yourself Halloween costume ideas available at Savers.com, the website for a national chain store that specializes in secondhand and gently-used clothes and accessories.
For parents who can’t make it to Savers locations to meet costume consultants, the website has printable costume and makeup tutorials on how to create unique, inexpensive, and memorable Halloween looks for everyone from parents to pets.
By following the simple costume shopping lists and step-by-step makeup instructions, the whole family can be transformed into popular characters from “Avatar,” “Toy Story 3,” or “Sesame Street.” There are also handy tutorials on creating annual Halloween costume favorites such as superheroes and princesses in addition to creating a Steampunk costume, a trend that combines elements of the Victorian era with science fiction.
For budget-conscious families, parents can still save money and time without sacrificing style and personality. Plus, saving on Halloween costumes for 2010 will mean having enough on the side to plan for next year!
