Giveaway: Win a Halloween Costume from HalloweenCostumes.com!

This giveaway has closed. Congratulations to Kelly Stadium, who entered by commenting! Please stay tuned for more giveaways in the future!

It’s October! The weather has cooled down, the leaves are changing colors, Starbucks is serving Pumpkin Spice Lattes again…

…and we are nearing one of America’s favorite holidays.

That’s right — Halloween is coming up in just a few short weeks! And if you do not yet have a costume, I have great news for you!

HalloweenCostumes.com has graciously offered to give one reader up to $75 worth of FREE costumes!

Their site, which is organized by sex, age, size, and even themes, features hundreds of costumes in all price ranges and tastes.

Have a little one in the house? Why not try the Baby Costumes section? Are you a history buff? Go check out the Historical Costumes! Of course, this post would not be complete without my mentioning the Star Wars Costumes or the Video Game / Toy Costumes sections. I am also loving the Wizard of Oz Costumes, and if my due date weren’t literally days away from Halloween you know I would be sporting something from the Maternity Costumes!

They even have a great selection of Couples, Groups, Plus Size, and even Pet costumes!

Here are a few of my personal favorites…

This costume can fit both kids and adults!
Mario Kart Costume, $19.99


I confess: I have always wanted to dress like the Princess of Power.
She-Ra Costume, $48.99


I have been telling J for ages that with our height difference,
we would make the perfect Spartan Cheerleaders couple.
Spartan Cheerleader Costumes, $27.99 each (female and male)

  1. Emily L:

    My most memorable costume was when I made my own Candy Corn costume 5 years ago. I literally spent nights hand sewing each piece together. The crowd loved it and it was a hit at the party!

  2. Lili:

    Last year, i bought some bat wings and ears and was a bat. People thought I was a flying cat. haha.

  3. Judy:

    Most memorable costume has to be the time when I was a teen and decided trick or treat as “myself”. I couldn’t believe people gave me candy… Those were the days when my friends and I were “too cool” for costumes… Or so we thought. lol

  4. Jen:

    My favorite frugal costume was being a penalty flag – a yellow poncho was all I needed! My boyfriend wore a ref shirt he already owned and kept me tucked under his arm all night. It was a blast!

  5. Joyce:

    My favorite costume was Snow White…or maybe it was because I got the most candy that year?? =)

  6. My best costume was the year I went as Cleopatra. Not entirely original, but I made the entire costume by hand, beading and all. It took me 4 months and I was very proud of it.

  7. i remember being tinkerbell when i was in 1st grade…i thought i had the prettiest costume out of everyone else!

  8. When I was in elementary school I went as Pippy Longstocking. I definitely outdid all the other girls in my class though… my mom braided my hair around a wire hanger so my pigtails actually did stick straight out!

  9. Cecilia Andes:

    My most memorable costume was when I wore a cat suit and went as cat woman. I was the bell of the ball (party). LOL…. And I loved all the cute comments.

  10. I went as Hera one year in elementary school (since I was studying Greek mythology) and made the costume myself. It was basically a white dress with sheets that I wrapped around myself, and I painted my face white. I thought I looked so cool, but looking back it was pretty ridiculous!

  11. Oh I would love to be She-Ra!

  12. Michael:

    I wore a robe and had a pipe. I was Hugh Heffner.
