Special Assembly: Halloween made easy with a DIY costume

imageHalloween is right around the corner and I really hate dressing up. I always try to figure out a clever costume that is mostly made up of my own clothes. This year, we have a Halloween dress up day and dance on Friday the 24th and then I have a couple of parties Halloween weekend. I saw an idea on Pinterest and ran with it! I decided to be a bank robber since I had almost all the components in my closet. I started with a black and white striped long sleeved t-shirt that I bought over Columbus weekend at Banana Republic. Everything was 40% off, so this leather trimmed top was only $25. I’m going to wear it with black leggings, a plain black beanie, and black gloves. I needed to buy two things to complete the costume. The black mask that I found at Party City for $3.99 was perfect. The next item was a little more challenging. I needed a money bag. I found a plain canvas bag at Walmart for .99 cents and then bought black puffy paint, also .99 cents. I sketched a large dollar sign on the tote and the painted it with the puffy paint. Done!
