- Ghost You had to know this standby Halloween costume was going to be on the list. Grab a plain, white sheet and cut two holes for your eyes. If you don’t have a white sheet hanging around or the one you have is too big, you can purchase a few yards of plain, white cotton fabric at your local discount fabric store for less than five bucks.
- Soldier If you're active in the military, you may not even need to buy anything for this cheap Halloween costume. Buy or borrow a pair of camouflage pants and a camouflage T-shirt. Depending on where you live, you probably should not carry around a real or pretend gun. If you're headed to a Halloween party, go without the gun and you'll be less likely to get shot at or arrested for carrying a weapon.
- Devil You can buy a devil’s pitch fork, tail and horns inexpensively at most party supply stores. Add a pair of black or red jogging pants and a red hooded sweatshirt and you’re ready for Halloween. If you really want to go all out, you can add bright red cheeks with lipstick and a sinister looking mustache with black eye liner.
- Warlock Making a warlock Halloween costume on the cheap side is easy. You can grab a warlock/witch's hat at your local big box store for less than five bucks. Wear blank pants and a black top, robe or cape. For added authenticity, you should buy or make a wand out of a wooden dowel spray painted blank.
- School Girl If you're in touch with your feminine side, this Halloween costume is a fun one that everyone with be talking about. Dust off your girlfriend's Catholic school girl outfit or pick up one at your local thrift shop. All you need is a plaid mini skirt, a white button up shirt and some cotton knee socks. A big cross is optional, but would complete the look nicely.
