We don’t all have a lot of money to spend every year on a new outfit, which is why budget Halloween fancy dress costumes are becoming more common sights in supermarkets and on costume retail websites. Some even have sections dedicated to low cost solutions that won’t break your bank balance.
I read an article today (read it here) that stated that people in America are expected to spend 9% more this year on all things relating to Halloween including Halloween fancy dress. These stats came from a consumer survey from the National Retail Federation. However, this isn’t what we’re getting from customers so far who are very concerned with the amount of money they will be spending. Halloween in the US is a much longer holiday period than in the UK, so it makes sense that the nation as a whole spends more per person than in other countries. I’ll openly admit that I’m really quite jealous as the run up to the 31st can be a real drag but when the day finally comes it seems to always be worth the wait.
Budget Halloween Fancy Dress Options
Finding really cheap Halloween fancy dress is no problem at all. Many of the online retailers that sell Halloween costumes along with major supermarkets stock budget outfits. With the current financial climate in the state that it is offering cheaper options will allow everyone to buy an outfit and get involved with this fantastic holiday period. It’s a time for people to forget about their personal or professional lives and enjoy an evening of scares and entertainment. Many neighbourhoods participate in local festivities in the form of trick or treating and screening horror movies on a projector. Asking your village hall to open for the night so that communities can come together and spook in safety is a great idea. Everyone turning up in their own Halloween fancy dress creation will be a topic of conversation in itself.
Doing a quick search online will present hundreds of stores with thousands of Halloween fancy dress options. Filtering the results to display Halloween fancy dress options that cost less than £15 / $23 or some that are even less than £10 / $15.50. You might think that they will be poor quality cast offs that nobody wants but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Simple designs with few accessories can be a great starting point for anyone with a creative head on their shoulders. Be it a cool zombie costume that can be formed from a nurse or cheerleader uniform or a bloody prom queen costume made from an old ball gown you can create Halloween fancy dress on a shoe string budget.
Budget Halloween Fancy Dress Costumes to Avoid
Simple, avoid nothing! If you have a bottle of fake blood and a pair of scissors you can turn a terrible purchase into a competition winning Halloween fancy dress costume. Halloween fancy dress doesn’t have to be perfect to be brilliant, quite the opposite infact. The more messy and vile looking the better it is. Enjoy yourself, have a good night and save your money for a night to remember.
