Eugene, Ore.– Halloween costumes can be scary, but the price of them don’t have to be. If you shop wisely, you can score some pretty good deals. The Spirit Halloween store in Eugene offers a huge selection of costumes for boys and girls, ranging from 5 to 10 dollars.
“Starting at 10 dollars you can get into country girl which is our version of strawberry shortcake or candy corn witch,” said Jim Austin, sales associate with Spirit Halloween.
For those wanting to be super heroes, you don’t need super powers to snag a great deal!
“All super hero shirts with the cape are 20 dollars,” said Austin.
And if you accessorize wisely, the final price of some frightening costumes won’t spook your budget.
“Zombie is a pretty inexpensive costume. Get some makeup and shred up some clothes and you’re an instant zombie,” said Austin.
He adds, “this is a classic, the hooded cape. You can use it as a vampire, grim reaper, a witch, there are so many options. It’s just adding teeth or a mask or makeup.”
