10 Costume Ideas and the BEST Secret for Pulling Them Together

Still asking yourself that elusive question, “What should I be for Halloween?”  Though this annual fright fest doesn’t hit our calendars for another 10 days, for many, the parties kick off this weekend. If you’re scrambling to pull together a costume, you probably have a few criteria in mind: fast, cheap, cute, and easy.
Chances are there a few options you’ve considered and ruled out at this point:
  1. Halloween Stores: They have tons of costumes BUT these always seems overused and overpriced
  2. Goodwill: Cheap but not always the cutest of costumes
  3. DIY: This always seems like a good idea until you start then realize it’s going to take 10x as long as you expected.
No need to worry because we’re letting you in on a little secret we’ve discovered. There are only two places you need to look for all of your costume needs: Forever 21 and American Apparel. Between these two stores you can piece together any costume you dream up and, best of all, it will be fast, cheap, cute and easy!
Here are 5 costume ideas from each store with pieces currently on their racks. The only question left to answer is “trick or treat?”
