So you've been invited to a Halloween party and you either hate dressing up, hate spending money on costumes, or just aren't creative enough to come up with something clever, we've got the answers to all your problems!

I do love dressing up for Halloween, but I usually end up spending more than I wanted to on my "homemade" costume, and that is annoying. Sometimes simple for minimum dollars really is best, and these pictures prove it...

Now, if I may add a few more that I put together with some things laying around my house to show just how easy it is. I would also like to thank my very fabulous male model for showing them off so fantastically.

1. "Raining Cats and Dogs"

2. "Leaf Blower"

I need to preface this last one by saying that I know this may not be a very politically correct costume idea, but it sure did make me laugh HARD when I saw the idea online. I should also admit that I had to force my model to wear it because he is not really on board with this hilarity. Thanks for being a good sport, Steve.

 3. A Dictator (please forgive me, but it's PUNNY! Get it? Punny? Never mind.)

Man, I'm still laughing at that one. Pretty sure it would be the hit at any party you attend this year.
