Halloween is less than a week away, and you’ve once again found yourself without anything to wear.
Don’t panic, and don’t run out to the nearest pop-up Halloween store and buy an overpriced costume in a bag. You still have all week to plan, and there are low-cost options, including building a costume yourself to save some money. But if you don’t have time to start knitting your own costume, there are still a few stores and sites offering deals. Here are some to check out:
If you want one of the popular new costumes for 2010, like Avatar or Jersey Shore, you’re going to pay full price. But the website is having a blowout sale on some costumes from years past, like this 300 Immortal mask for 60% off. I’d recommend this Dark Knight costume for your dog. Because he’s not our hero. He’s a silent guardian. A watchful protector. He’s Batdog.
Mario may get all the press, but Mario Kart fans know that his evil twin Wario is where it’s at. CurrentCodes.com offers the coupon code vamp10 for 10% off any order of $40 or more, bringing this down to an affordable $40.49 before shipping.
Some costumes never go out of style. You can dig this one out of the attic 20 years from now and everyone will still recognize who you are, long after your Snooki costume has been relegated to the dustbin of history.
This adorable costume was already marked down, and you can take off another 20% when you use the coupon code SPAF20, courtesy of FatWallet.com. As with most of these costumes, though, shipping will get a bit pricey.
I think at this point every women’s costume has to have “Sexy” in the name. This one is 70% off, though it’s only available in small and extra small.
