Costume Double Duty

Call me thrifty, cheap, a miser. Say what you may, but I do know how to stretch a penny. But when it comes to Halloween and other times that require a costume, its not always easy to get a great deal. And that’s really not cool, especially when it’s something your only going to where one day a year. So what’s a discount diva to do? Make your costume do double duty. Your probably scratching your head wondering what in the world I am talking about. Essentially, instead of going for the packaged costumes that you will never be able to wear again, put together everyday wearable pieces that work together to make a costume.

I have put together a collection from around the web some of my favorites that could be used to make an awesome costume this Halloween. After all, since it involves fashion, Halloween is one of my favorite Holidays. To see more info on an item or to purchase, just click the picture.
