12 Budget Friendly Halloween Costumes You Can Find in Your Closet
Low on cash and/or time this Halloween season? Never fear. There are plenty of fun, fandom themed costumes you can build using items you already own in your closet. Dig some key items out of your wardrobe and pair them up with a little makeup or a prop and you’re ready to go! No fuse, little to no extra spending, and quick Halloween costume solutions. (Don’t worry, I’m not going to cover the typical nurse or construction worker in this post -you know we have to get nerdy!)
Pick your favorite character from Supernatural and go closet diving. From flannel shirts and jeans to trench coats, this character cast is sure to match something you have on hand.
Bust out that old prom dress hiding in the back of your closet and pair it with a dollar store crown, or throw on your overalls (or jeans and suspenders) paired with a colored t-shirt and hat and you’re set to go!
Being bad can be a lot of fun. Don a colored robe and simple mask to complete these fun costumes.

Again, pair a simple robe or sheet with a mask and you’re set for Halloween.
Put on your “average civilian clothes” and best pair of thick rimmed glasses. Don’t forget to wear your ‘secret’ superhero shirt underneath, so when you’re called to save the day you can dash off to the rescue!
Pull out your suit and pair it with some red and white face-paint. Bonus points if you have a tricycle to ride around on.
These guys have grown quite popular over the past few years, but with good cause. Throw on your overalls and a yellow shirt and out the door you go. Bonus -talk nonsense and carry a banana around.
Kick some alien butt in your best black and white suit. Don’t forget the shades!
This one may take a little more time for the effects/makeup, but you can literally go any direction with your zombie costume. Take your worn work/scrub type-clothes that are a little dirty and beat up, add some fake blood and start practicing that zombie shuffle and groan.
Just like Supernatural, the character cast gives you so many options for simple Halloween costumes -it doesn’t get much easier to throw a costume together based on the clothes in your closet.
Get ready to travel through time with one of these fun, but easy options!
There are so many characters to choose from in this category, especially given all the generations of Pokemon there are now.
