Halloween isn’t just a spooky holiday filled with ghost, goblins, and ghouls. It’s also a big moneymaker. CNBC estimated in September 2017 that $9.1 billion would be spent on Halloween. Of that total, $3.4 billion would be shelled out for costumes. The average consumer will spend $86.13 on their costume and honestly, it will probably be duplicated by at least a few of their friends.
If you can’t stand the thought of being the 20th ghost-costume on the street then you might want to take a closer look at the holiday’s most inventive and completely-homemade costumes. These people must love Halloween and they seem to know how to create a costume people will be talking about.
A Scary Fish From The Deep Depths Of The Ocean
The anglerfish is really a marvel to behold. This fish lurks in the darkest and deepest depths of the ocean searching for prey. The dangling light on the top of this fishes head attracts its meals who come in for a closer look. If you are close enough to realize a danger is lurking, you are about to become a meal for the anglerfish.
These women did a great job of capturing the freightening nature of the fish while adding a little bit of geeked out electronics into the mix. This is impressive but we have more complex examples of DIY and super creative Halloween costumes coming up.
