Last Minute Halloween Costumes Under $25

In a month or so cold weather party season will roll around, leaving a bunch of my friends wanting to buy a new cocktail dress. That's when they'll start regretting the $98 spent crafting Games of Thrones Halloween costumes back in October. I won't be in that boat, though, because as much as I love buying clothes I draw the line at shelling out for costumes.

That's where the outfits in the slideshow below come in: they cut corners but still look creative, which is great in itself. But they're also great because they'll free you up to buy real clothes later, on days when Khaleesi's pet dragons and shredded burlap crop top won't elicit "you look great!" reactions.

The dress you wear doesn't really matter. But your earrings must be at least 4 inches long and your eyeliner must be way heavier than usual.

Feel free to pass judgement on the sexy schoolgirls walking around; you've got a giant headband, so you're a totally different pop culture reference.
