Buying a Halloween Costume on a Budget!

This year for Halloween I wanted a costume that would look kind of pretty rather than scary. I know that seems silly but if you’re a girly girl you’ll get what I mean. Anyway, It’s hard to find cute Halloween costumes in the shops especially because they’re all for younger children. So, I bought mine online from websites like Amazon and eBay.

My Dress-

I’m being a vampire so I started looking on Amazon for black mini dresses. A lot of these are really cheap so if they have reviews make sure you check them out before you buy your item. I found the perfect dress but they sold out then I managed to find the exact same one on eBay. Mine, unfortunately, didn’t have any reviews so I was taking a little bit of a risk, but I ordered it so it would arrive at the start of the month giving me plenty of time to find something else if it didn’t work out.img_1557I was super happy with my dress. It arrived 2 days earlier than it was estimated which was such a bonus! It’s exactly as the picture portrays, however, it does look slightly more fitted on the model because of the way she’s posing. The dress is a crushed velvet material with a lace detail around the bottom and neckline.IMG_1730IMG_1733IMG_1725

 

The Cape-

Being a vampire I definitely needed a cape but I didn’t want to hide my dress completely so I bought a spiderweb lace cape. I found different versions of this cape and chose the cheapest one that would still be delivered quickly.img_1558

Overall, I’m really happy with the cape. The length is good and for the price, the quality is good too. There’s a couple of threads but for the price and material, I was completely expecting that. It’s nothing you can’t quickly snip off. It was also delivered on time and there were no problems.IMG_1753IMG_1751

Fangs and Fake Blood-

To add some detail to my costume, I really wanted fangs. On Amazon, they do lots of Dracula fang caps which look so realistic. My mum has used these in the past so I knew they were safe and looked really good. I decided to buy some that also came with a tube of fake blood as it was only pence more than buying the Dracula teeth alone.img_1559I haven’t actually tried on the teeth or used the blood yet because I want to keep them all packaged up until Halloween night. However, the package came on time and it was fast delivery. The fangs have good directions on the back and It all looks like it should work well.img_1545

As for shoes, I already have some gorgeous velvet heels that match the velvet of the dress. I also thought these were perfect because they’re burgundy which will add some colour to the outfit. If you’re looking for shoes I would recommend actually going to a shop to try some on as I don’t know how trust accurate sizes on Amazon and eBay will be. New Look often does some really good sale shoes.IMG_1739

I’m so happy if this gave anyone any inspiration or good ideas. That reminds me if you’re looking for a good Halloween costume inspo, Pinterest is a perfect help. I’ve been using Pinterest a lot for Halloween ideas. Make sure you like and follow x

    You actually make it appear really easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually one thing that I think I would by no means understand. It sort of feels too complex and very extensive for me. I’m taking a look forward in your next post, I will try to get the cling of it!
