9 Creative (and Eco-Friendly!) Thrift-Store Halloween Costumes Under $15
Don't get us wrong, we love Halloween as much as the next guy or ghoul. But we doubt we're the only ones who consider a $59.99 "costume" (read: a shoddily sewn swath of polyester) more trick than treat. Add to that the yawn factor of having the same exact "sexy cop" getup as two other people at a party and it's enough to make you want to quit dressing up all together. Enter thrifting. With a little ingenuity and know-how, you can snag a one-of-a-kind outfit for under $20. Join senior editor Yuka Yoneda and contributing writer Lori Zimmer as they scare up nine creative costume ideas from other people's castoffs, Doc Frankenstein-style.
