It’s official! Halloween is next month and the countdown is beginning early over here. I never seem to plan my costume well enough ahead, but I’m determined to be on top of my game this year. I can’t stand the idea of wearing a corset and animal ears, and calling it a costume. I have a hard time finding store bought costumes that are interesting, not slutty, and recognizable, so here are my picks for the 10 best store bought Halloween costumes for this year (and at less than $40 each, none of them will break the bank!).
10. 20s Flapper Girl
I’ll admit that this is definitely on the sexy side, but do your homework and study 1920s lexicon. If you can talk the talk, that’s what really sells this costume. Plus size also available.
9. Sock Hop Sweetheart
Don’t tell Peter Pan you’ve become a pirate! Collect yourself some booty and give out gold chocolate coins to your friends. Everyone loves a gracious pirate.
7. Spartan Cheerleader
If you don’t know much about Cleopatra, at least watch the 1963 film starring Elizabeth Taylor. Break out the eyeliner, ladies! Plus size also available.
Put yourself in stitches as the lovable Sally from Nightmare Before Christmas. Body paint optional, as this costume also comes with sleeves.
Beat everyone to the punch as Jem from Jem and the Holograms. She’s fun, sparkly, and got a new movie scheduled for 2016.
3. Captain America
This Lady America dress is still long enough to fight crime in, but if you’d rather wear the full suit, go for it!
2. Classic Witch
Nothing says Halloween better than a witch! Keep it traditional, and let your inner goth out. Plus size also available.
1. Litchfield Prison Jumpsuit
You’ve got time to pre-order this costume straight from Orange Is The New Black. Don’t worry, they’ve also got these puppies in the classic convict orange.
