Are you ready to answer the biggest question in October – What are YOU being for Halloween? Before you respond, think to yourself, do you really want to be Lady Gaga again this year, or do you just simply lack the creative ability when it comes to finding and creating costumes like the rest of our generation? Halloween is the one day a year where you can dress-up and act like whoever you’d like (without being judged) for the whole day, have fun with it!

For those who are having a hard time finding a unique costume of their own, here are some low costing suggestions to get your idea’s flowing. It is to be hoped that most of the items you’ll need to complete a look can be found in your own closets, saving you tons for money!

Vivian from Pretty Woman:

A blonde wig, preferably with bangs, found at your local target for only $8, short white tank top, blue mini skirt, to make the skirt match the color of the one shown in the movie, take white fabric paint, found at any Michael’s Craft Store and lightly dab on. A Red blazer, high healed black leather boots, and lastly, red juicy lips!

Tom Cruise from Risky Business:

A plain white button-up dress shirt, white boxers, white high socks, and black sun glasses!

Rosie the Riveter:

Red and white polka dotted bandana, a navy or royal blue button-up dress shirt, be sure to roll up the sleeves to of course show off your “guns of steal,” high waisted jeans, red socks, black boots, and again red lipstick!

Pee Wee Herman from Pee-Wee’s Playhouse:

White shirt, red bow tie, gray blazer, white pocket square, gray dress pants, high white socks and fresh white sneakers!
