Buying everything you need to make your own costume can really add up. That’s okay if you’re not on a budget, but if the point of making it was to save money, you’re going to need to plan carefully. Halloween costumes is that they are often cheaply made and if they are not, you can expect to pay an arm and a leg for them. If you are going for a costume this is super unique and you can’t find it to purchase it anywhere, or if you’ve made up the costume idea on your own, then it’s time to get crafty and make it. Buying a Halloween could be cheaper just to buy because you would need to buy more materials if making it.  

“Go through old Halloween costumes because it’s cheaper and it’s more creative,” said special education teacher Ms. Mary Martin. 

Making Halloween costumes could be a fun activity to do with your friends and parents and it could be a way to show your creativeness.  

“I would make my Halloween costumes with my parents and best friends, I would help others with their costumes,” said senior Joseph Flores. 

Some people think they can save money by making their own, but it depends on the costume. Buying everything you need to make your own costume can really add up.  

“I rather just buy my own costumes even if I have to pay more because I believe it’s too stressful and overwhelming to make a costume because you have to plan it carefully and have the right materials,” said senior Emily Salgado.
