    When in doubt, revisit the '80s. It's a surefire way to win a costume contest without putting much work into it, because, let's face it, most of the stuff you already own/wear could probably appear in The Breakfast Club and not seem too out of place.

    Now, let's be clear about one thing: We're not suggesting you go out and buy one of those ridiculously over-priced "'80s party girl" package costumes at your local Halloween pop-up shop. No, you can do better than that! These costumes are so easy and straight-forward, you can probably get away with spending under $20 dollars (if not a flat nada) — but, they're still fun, creative, and offer those coveted, crucial DIY bragging rights. Hit the slideshow, 'cause it's gonna be totally rad!
