So, in order to void all that, here is the way to show off your fashionable side, while spending little or no money at all and being truly one of a kind.
Inspiration is everywhere. From celebrities and movies to your favorite novels and fairy tales. Preparing for a Halloween party should be as much fun as the party, so use your imagination and be original and goofy. You don’t want to spend too much money, so it is best to use regular clothing items and add an item or two to make your costume more believable. Here are five costumes that are cheap and simple, so you can have a fabulous Halloween party and be original.
Karl Lagerfeld’s style is recognizable all over the world and it hasn’t change in ages. While you don’t have to change your hair color, you can do something very silly: just put some baby powder on it and pick up your hair in a low ponytail. When it comes to clothing, you will need a pair of oxford flats, black sunglasses, of course, a tie, and a suit. Accessorize it some more with a long chain necklace and a pair of riding gloves. In case you are missing a piece of outfit, just borrow it form your father’s or boyfriend’s closet. Wouldn’t it be cool to be Mister Chanel for at least one night?

Long blonde hair, real or fake, a perfect set of false eye lashes and everything pink is all you need to be the most famous doll ever made. Barbie is all about being girly and playful, so you can use jewelry you wore when you were a child and wear it with a simple pink or red dress. If you want to be a Barbie, forget about matching colors; wear yellows, pinks, reds, greens, pastels and neons, as long as you are all sparkling and cheerful. For a perfect Barbie look just think pink!

Just because Vivian Ward was a prostitute, it doesn’t mean she is not a movie icon. In fact, Pretty Woman is one of the most popular romantic comedies of all time, so no wonder Julia Roberts’ poster outfit, if you can call it one, is still hot, even 22 years later. You need a pair of over knee boots, a cropped top and a tight, body con skirt. Accessorize the outfit with oversized jewelry and who knows, if you are single and lucky enough you might find yourself a Richard Gere look alike.

Lady Gaga is very popular at costume parties. However, Gaga changes her looks daily, so it is safer to go for some of her older looks. It gives you a complete freedom to use clothing items that you wouldn’t dare to wear on daily or formal occasions. Among the must-haves you will find a crazy pair of sunglasses, fake nails in various shapes and colors, studs, skulls and shoes which look like they are not really made for walking, but are surprisingly comfortable. You can mix it up with some of Cindy Lauper’s crazy outfits from the 80’s and you may become a new fashion sensation, literally over night.

Angelina Jolie is one of the hottest women alive. On the other hand, Lara Croft is the best looking girl in the world of video games. So, here is what you need to become her, at least for a night. First of all, you will need a fake tan. When it comes to clothing, all you need is a good, padded push up bra, a black tank top and a plain shorts. Pick up your hair in a ponytail, you can use extensions to make it longer and richer or wear a wig if your hair is not dark. The only thing missing is a plastic gun, which you can borrow from the kid next door. It is as simple as that and you will feel cozy and comfortable because you’ll be wearing your own summer clothes with just a few crazy accessories, like a gun.
