Tip #13: To save money on Halloween costumes, work with what you've got.
This tip is brought to you by Nora... just look at the great, original, creative, one-of-a-kind costumes you can whip up just by gathering things from around the house and tying them onto your body. Who cares that no one will have any idea what you're supposed to actually be... or that to most people, you will probably just appear to be homeless and less than sane... Just think of all those times you've shown up to a Halloween party wearing a sexy cat costume that you went out and spent thirty bucks on just to run into five other people wearing the same thing - you will never again have that problem (and you'll also save a good chunk of change) by adopting one of these soon-to-be classics:
|Nora Socky-Hands (this, by the way, is "Beach" version - sunglasses and shirt are optional.)|
|Superwoman: Kitchen Edition |
(...gestures are important with this one - be sure to point and keep a serious face...
"I want YOU to do the dishes. I'll dry.")
|Clothespin Monster - what could be scarier than clothespins?|
