Halloween might seem like a carefree holiday where kids dress up and we all over-indulge in candy, but it’s a major money-maker too. Americans spend $9 billion (yes, billion) each year on the holiday which equals out to over $80 a household. While we could easily spend $80 on candy, the majority of that money goes towards costumes.
If you want to save some money on your costume this year and are tired of being a sexy cop for the 16th time, then take a look at these inventive and entirely homemade costumes. Show up at your best friend’s Halloween party in any of these costumes and your friends and family will be talking about it for years.
French Kiss? Or French KISS
Everyone loves a good pun, and that’s always when the best creative Halloween costumes happen. This group of friends knew they could have just been KISS and called it a day but they took it an extra step further by making it French.
This is one of the easiest unique costumes to do on a budget. Just buy some Halloween makeup and put on some striped shirts. If you want to take it a step further, buy a baguette and eat some cheese all night.
