With the exciting time of Halloween fast approaching, this is around the time everyone thinks about what they want to dress up as. No matter your preference, whether you love movies, music, superheroes, or want to dress up as a celebrity, Halloween puts your imagination and creativity on full display. However, sometimes the outfits we need are quite expensive, just to be changed for the next Halloween. With that in mind, here are 30 awesome Halloween costumes under $30.
Queen Of Hearts
The look is easy to achieve; all you need is a red dress, some red lipstick, and a deck of cards. You make a necklace with the cards (glue them on a piece of paper), and look more fashionable than ever!
Men In Black
Dressing up as the Men in Black is not only a great idea but also one of the most cost-effective ones out there. As long as you have the staple black suit, and some cool sunglasses, you will be incomplete style this Halloween!
DIY Bat Costume
This will make for a very impressive costume if you can pull it off (and it is very easy to make)! Get an old umbrella (a black dress can work too) and attach it under a black hoodie, making it look like bat wings. The rest of your outfit is up to you, and people will flood you with compliments on your creativity!
Dressing up as Queen Elsa from Frozen is always a fantastic idea! You will look amazing, and the outfit costs under $25 to put together. You just need a blue dress with some pearls, dye your hair blonde/white, and put a strand of the hair in a braid.
Star-Lord is the leader of the Guardians of the Galaxy, and dressing up as him for Halloween will make you look cooler than you could ever imagine. All you need are his signature red leather jacket and some black leather jeans with big pockets. If you want to go out of budget though, you can add his famous helmet.
The iconic duo from Riverdale will turn everybody’s attention to you. The outfit is very cheap, as you only need a matching cheerleading outfit. Bonus if you go as two people!
Everyone loves Minnie mouse, and good thing she is quite cheap to dress up as! All you need is a black top, and a red skirt with black dots to be the most beautiful mouse in all of Disney! Get ready for compliments from both friends and strangers!
Rosie The Riveter
One of the most iconic women in photos, dressing up as Rosie the Riveter will make you look so incredible. You just need a red bandana with white dots and blue overalls with a red belt. Bonus points if you can do her famous flex pose.
You have many options on how you want to go about this. You can cut parts of a t-shirt, or buy an already made shirt with holes and that is worn out. The makeup should cost less than $10, and overall, your creativity will shine with this! Try to sell it by dragging your feet on the ground often.
Going as one of Gru’s minions from the classic Despicable Me is great for two reasons: everybody loves minions, and it is so cheap to go as them!

You’ll look great, and it is very easy to put together!
Dressing up as Sia for Halloween will definitely not break your bank, but it will surely turn many heads! Sia has such a unique look, and if you can do it well, everyone will compliment your outfit! For this, all you need is her staple white suit, dye your hair black and white (or wear a wig), and a black dress. You can go further to get Sia’s famous large ribbon on her head as well!
If you were a fan of the iconic Flinstone family, dress up as the main character, Fred! His outfit is extremely easy and cheap to make, looks great, and feels very comfortable!

Bonus points if you go as a couple and your partner is Wilma!
