6 Super Cute and Cheap Halloween Costume Ideas

As someone who is super obsessed with Halloween and often spends months in advance coming up with a costume idea, I can totally understand if you’d just rather not because it does take a lot of time and effort. For this reason, I’ve come up with a list of super easy and inexpensive ideas for those of you who just want simple, cheap Halloween costume ideas that won’t cost you a ton of money ( if any money at all ). These ideas are still fun and cute so you can enjoy the fun of Halloween without breaking the bank or looking lame.

Any kind of Animal – Cat, Dog, Mouse, Bunny, etc.

 One of the easiest options for a quick and cheap Halloween costume is to dress up like a cute (or scary) animal of your choice. Cats are really easy and all you need is some black eyeliner or face paint to draw on some whiskers and accentuate a kitty nose.

Add in a black slinky bodysuit, dress or even black leggings and you’re good to go! You can customize any of these however you like with what you already own as desired. If cats aren’t your thing, there are always cute dog or puppy looks, bunnies, a mouse, or even a cute deer like Bambi 😉 See my Kitty Cat Makeup or Minnie Mouse Makeup.

Skeleton / Dead Anything

There are loads of skeleton makeup ideas and tutorials out there, but the realistic ones are my favorite because they looks elegant, beautiful, and still really haunting. You can make any costume or invent any costume you already have by “dead-ifying” it. Have a pirate costume already?

Go as a dead pirate this year! You can also just wear a cute outfit and paint your face as a skeleton. Play around with fun colors and go as yourself, but dead 😉 You can also add color to this idea by doing a sugar skull makeup look.

Any Fairy Tale Character

 If you’re a fairy tale fan, there are tons of fairy tale characters (and Disney and classic Grimm ones) you can easily dress up. If you have short dark hair, put a red bow in your hair, pop on a white, red or black dress, give yourself some rosy cheeks and red lips and there you go – You’re Snow White.

If you happen to own a blue or yellow dress, go as Belle from Beauty and the Beast. If you have particularly long hair, go as Rapunzel. If you’re blonde, go as Aurora from Sleeping Beauty or Cinderella. 🙂 If you need inspiration, check out my fashion finds inspired by fairy tale characters!

A Ghost

You can dress up as a ghost for Halloween in so many fun way no matter your age or gender. The first way is super easy and involves cutting 3 circles into an old sheet for your eyes and mouth. Voilà! You’re a ghost 😉 The second goes for a bit more of a realistic ghost look and involves painting your face white and making your eyes look all gaunt and dead-like. Both ideas are reasonably cheap and fun 🙂
