It’s the spookiest time of the year: Halloween season is officially upon us! If you’ve ever tried to find the perfect costume, you know how quickly the price tag can become the scariest part of Halloween. Never fear! Our Boomerangs stores are full of unique and affordable pieces that can help you create costume magic without hexing your credit score. Simple ideas like all black wear for a lydia deetz wedding dress costume don’t need to break the bank, and neither do some more outlandish concepts! Here are a few suggestions from Boomerangs staff for pumpkin spicing up your Halloween look.
Pink lace-up boots: Marie Antoinette
These boots are fit for royalty, but don’t lose your head — they’re super affordable! Pair with a vintage ball gown or prom dress and a powdered wig and you’ll be ready for a revolutionary Halloween.
Sequin gown: Super Star/Cover Girl
Ready for your close-up? You will be in this fabulous sequin gown! Channel your inner diva with this A-list costume at a C-list price, and strut your stuff on the red carpet, inside Red Lobster, or wherever fame may take you.
Pleather long-sleeved top: Catwoman/Super Spy
Meow! This pleather top is purrfect for Catwoman cosplay, especially paired with goggles and a whip. If prowling Gotham isn’t your style, this top also makes for a very sleek and mysterious International Spy. Halloween: shaken, not stirred.
Pink Skirt: Pink Lady
Grease is the word this Halloween with this 1950s-inspired pleated skirt. Pair with a leather or varsity jacket and some saddle shoes and call up your fellow Pink Ladies. Meet you at the sock hop!
Vintage Military Jacket: WWII Soldier/Captain America
Ten-hut! This smart vintage jacket would look battle ready with some combat boots, fatigues, and a helmet. Give it a comic geek twist by carrying Captain America’s shield — the Red Skull won’t know what hit him. At ease, soldier!
Striped Shirt: 1990s Teen Heartthrob
The dream of the 90s is alive at Boomerangs! This bold striped shirt, paired with some ripped acid wash jeans, Doc Martens, and a mushroom cut, gives you that slacker style rocked by so many former Tiger Beat magazine pin-ups: Jonathan Taylor Thomas, Ryder Strong, and even young Leo DiCaprio. Looking fly, dude!
