    While we get super (read: SUPER) into Halloween, we can't help but roll our eyes every time we pass a big costume supplier chock-full of dead President masks, plastic axes, and slutty-everything looks. Over here at R29, we like to construct our October 31 ensembles on our own terms — and, that means getting thrifty. To stand out from the mass-manufactured crowd, we hit up our NYC vintage mecca, Housing Works, to piece together some easy-to-assemble costumes — complete with expert tips, obviously.

    Because we wanted to make sure all our readers were covered, we tried to be as diverse as possible with our spooky-chic concoctions. Think: the flattering-yet-funny pun costume, the jailed-celebrity getup, the creepy-but-comfy look, and the one you'll actually wear again. Oh, and — wait for it — they're all budget enough to leave enough cashola for some potent witches' brew. What can we say, we're scary-good.
