Greetings! What are you doing for Halloween? I have a party to go to this Saturday. My costume? I'll be a 70s disco chick. I have an old afro I wore to a Studio 54 party last year and a sexy maxi dress. I need to run out and get some medallions so Pam Grier will be asking ME where I shop.
What about you? I have some ideas for Frugalista-style costumes that pamper your bank accounts. I did a segment recently for WTVJ NBC-6 here in South Florida and had a bash.
1) Go as a job seeker. Wear an old suit from your closet. Tape a pink slip of paper to a "Hello, My Name Is" sticker that you can buy from an office warehouse store for about $4.97.
2) Go as 70s disco queen! You can either buy a ready-made outfit from a place like Party City or you can hit up thrift or vintage stores for discount bell bottoms. Wear your hair in a flip or buy and afro from a beauty supply store for about $25.
3) Go as Sasha Fierce. A leotard will run you about $15. Throw on some heels, fake eye lashes and put on a fake bling ring. You can get the fake bling rings for about $2.99 in the wedding section of costume/party shops.
*As if* these tips aren't enough, check out my blog homie, Bargain Babe. She held a contest for most affordable costume.
