How to Create a Unique Costume

With Halloween approaching, I wanted to quickly share the way I come up with fun, unique costumes without feeling like I'm "wasting" money on something I'm only wearing one day a year.

So the point of view I have now when it comes to making a costume is that I'm only going to buy pieces for it that I can wear again in the future. It sort of utilizes a "everyday cosplay" mentality which has been inspired by The Nerdy Girlie.

Here are some examples:

 Peter Parker/Spider-Man

While they may not have been perfect, they were enjoyable, comfortable, and allowed for me to not feel bad about spending the money to put them together.

I recommend looking up some examples of street clothed superheroes or just dressing up as people in normal clothes for costumes this year. I'm sure it will help with the anxiety many of us have when trying to come up with something to wear.

Show me your favorite costumes! I'll send free copies of my ebook to folks who do.
