DIY | Simple Halloween Costume: Marty Mcfly

The spookiest calendar holiday fall on a Friday this year and who doesn’t love dressing up like your favorite ghoul or goblin?  It is the one day you are allowed to be anything you want and not feel ashamed about it. Even if you are too old for that TMNT costume. For most of us we may not have time or even the money to dish out for a new costume, but you’ve probably realized: it is time to let go of that old Darth Vader look this year.

If you happen to be childless on October 31st, then chances are you’ll be out on the prowl and looking to get a few drinks into your system. We are with you buddy. Many dive bars and house parties will not let you enter if you are not in full costume, or they may let you attend the party just so you can be the only LAME in the party without a costume on. Which is really awkward and disturbing. When done right, a crafty Halloween costume could be already sitting in the back of your closet or at a local department store. If you decide to go the department store route, feel good knowing most of the items you see here you can reuse. 

Here is one way to pull off a holiday costume without spending a lot of money.
