Brown Paper BagWith the economy this bad, no one would give you crap about a brown paper bag over-the-head costume with the words "the economy" written on it. In fact, they will applaud and laugh at that cynical humor. In fact, what you are doing is actually a service to the candy giver, as it will allow for them to get a chuckle or two in exchange for candies. Fair exchange I must say.
RobocopThis costume might dent the bank a little bit, but nonetheless, this is still a cheap alternative to the real deal: Robocop… gone frugal. Here’s what you do, buy duct tape if you don’t already own some, then start wrapping it around yourself or get a friend to help until you are covered from head to toe with just the eyes and mouth showing (if you can score some pieces of cardboard boxes, lay that on you first before wrapping the duct tape to add authenticity to your Robocop). Recommendation of wearing something over the head is strongly advised because the cleanup/removal afterwards will be a pain, literally.
Basketball PlayerWithout a doubt, anyone can look like a basketball player. Take Jackie Moon for example (picture on the left), no basketball skills whatsoever, but yet, no one would have guessed it just by sheer appearance. Aiming to look like a baller on Halloween is a cinch. Wear shorts, find a t-shirt and cut the sleeves off so it looks like a cut-off shirt, and wear some kind of tennis shoes. Did someone say practice?!
Cross DresserCross dresser. Always popular and always easy. Though it is much harder for the men, because putting on makeup is no easy task. The rules are pretty straightforward: if you’re a guy, try to look like a s**tty female that you dream about. And for a woman, just aim for a tomboy look. There’s no need to spend money here, because surely you have friends of the opposite sex, but if that fails, look towards your family members with the last resort being the parentals.
