Don’t Buy a Costume…. Make You’re Own!!!

It’s October BITCHES!!!! The month of my favorite holiday. Let’s be honest Christmas is overrated, Halloween is the real highlight of the year. It’s the only holiday that exceeds the magic of your childhood. As a child you went skitzo over the anticipation of the best sugar high of the year and awesome costumes. As an adult you go skitzo over the parties, candy, alcohol and R-rated costumes.

Being a poor rager meant I had to get a bit creative concerning my costumes. Here are some of my creations. Maybe you can get some inspiration to raid your closet and see what inexpensive creations you can design.

Where’s Waldo? ($10)

  • Red & White Striped Shirt
  • Plain White Beanie
  • Red Material From Old Red Shirts

Cut red material and my gay BFF sewed stripes onto the beanie and voila you have a striped hat & stripped T-Shirt. Top it off with your prescribed glasses or buy some fake ones at the 99 Cent store.

Josie & The Pussycat Dolls: Meow ($5)

  • Cat Ears

Dress in black, draw in some whiskers and paw prints and voila you’re puurty cat.

Obama Girl ($10)

  • Patriotic ribbon
  • Iron on – printing paper

Tie red white and blue ribbon anywhere you see fit. On your head as a head band or around your leg fastened to a sexy garter. Iron on “Obama Girl” to a patriotic colored shirt and voila you’re an awesome democrat!

Nicki Minaj / Leather Dominatrix ($20)

  • Pink Wig
  • Anything (p)leather
  • Lingerie

Honestly you just need a purple wig and an outrageous outfit for this one. The wig is a bit pricey but it’s a $20 investment for any great outrageous occasion.

Zebra ($15)

  • Zebra dress

Put on your best zebra print or buy some from forever 21 or walmart, be creative with the make up and hair and voila you’re an animal but of course we already knew this.

PS: If you don’t have a gay bff who likes to sew, than Goodwill will fill that void and make sure you look amazing despite your penny pinching ways.

Have Fun!
