Halloween can be a lot of fun. Unfortunately, Halloween costumes can be expensive which isn’t always great for our fiscal fitness. I am a big fan of transforming clothing I already have into an iconic costume. This can be done by adding makeup and a few accessories.
Last year I dressed as a cat for Halloween. The great thing about this costume theme is that you can wear just about anything that flatters you. The cat look works with leggings, boots and a turtleneck. Or if you want to go glam, how about a little black dress? If you happen to have a leather or PVC catsuit in your closet, all the better! It is also a good excuse to rock your leopard print!

You can build this costume around clothing already in your closet, but first you need a couple key accessories… (Affiliate links to follow)
