Halloween is only three days away and what better reason to go to your local thrift store than to create a costume!

Around this time, most thrift stores have their Halloween decorations out and organized. Most stores also have racks that are dedicated to costumes and outfits that fit the holiday. Personally, I’m not a fan of spending $59.99 on a sheath of polyster that will expose over half my body. Instead I opt for the creative fulfillment of finding and piecing together my own one-of-a-kind costumer at Goodwill or any great second hand shop.

If you don’t want to add to the million girls that will be a police officer, school girl, nerd, or cat woman this year- bring a friend and head over to a thrift shop. Don’t be afraid of the crazy ideas and costumes you’ll find.

Also, Refinery 29 posted this awesome slideshow on how to thrift and create 6 different super easy Halloween costumes & Ecouterre also posted a slideshow of 9 costumes under $15.

Happy Thrifting
