Frugal and Fast: Last Minute Halloween Costumes

I wasn't going to dress up for Halloween this year.

Then The Sailor was given a Beetlejuice costume for the night. Now I will probably wear something but I don't have much time to prepare. I did find quite a few ideas that are not too pricey and can be made fairly quickly.

Medusa
What you'll need:
Longer hair (find a hair tutorial)
Plastic snakes (dollar store find)
A white sheet (no sew goddess dress)
Green eye shadow

Variations: Athena or Poseidon (you can make a trident with a broomstick, cardboard and duct tape)
   


Bandit

Black and white stripped or solid black shirt
