Super Simple Halloween Costumes on a Budget

Halloween costumes can be really pricey, especially if you have multiple children. Here are some of my ideas for cheap, easy to make costumes.

You can find a video tutorial for these costumes on my YouTube channel: Budget Costumes

Crazy Scientist

  • Old white shirt
  • Fake blood
  • Crazy hair (hair gel)
  • Glass jar
  • Fake fingers
  • Food dye
  • Eye protection googles or a head light (optional)

Wear the shirt like a lab coat. Stick hair up on all ends or in a crazy style, and wear goggles atop of the head. Fill the jar with fake fingers and green food dye.

Crazy Doctor

  • Old white shirt
  • Fake blood
  • Face mask
  • Stethoscope toy
  • Name Badge

You can download a free printable for my name badge design here:

Cover the shirt in blood and allow to dry. Print out the name badge and attach it to the shirt pocket. The rest of the costume is all down to the accessories.


  • Black clothes
  • Dark hat
  • Fake money (I printed some)
  • Takeaway bag
  • Black pen

This costume is very easy. Simply print and cut out fake money and draw a money sign on the takeaway bag.

I hope this post has been helpful for those of you doing Halloween on a budget!
