Walmart Canada: After Halloween Bargain Prices & Free Shipping

Posted by on November 2, 2014 at 1:30 PM

Walmart Canada: After Halloween Bargain Prices & Free Shipping

I know Halloween just happened, but if you plan on celebrating it again next year then head over to the retail giant to stock up on some great Halloween themed items at bargain prices with free shipping. This stuff will sell out QUICK.

In the decorations department, there are still some items to choose from though most have sold out. I found this 50 LED C3 Light Set in orange on sale from $9 down to $2.25. These are great for stringing up on your house or decorating the bushes outside your house. Stow them away in your Halloween box for next year.

This BEWARE sign for your front door is a great little prop you can purchase now and put away until next year. Originally $9, it is also on sale for just $2.25. Alternatively, you can give the sign to your son for his bedroom door until Halloween rolls around again.

For your little princess, you can grab a couple Princess star wand and tiara kits for her for next to nothing. Pick up the silver kit for $1, originally $4. There is no need to save it for next Halloween either, they would make great additions to your child’s dress-up box.

Check out these Jumbo Fist Halloween props. Originally $10, they are now on sale for $5. If you paint them both green, then you can use them as hulk fists. If you paint one red, then you can use it as Hellboy’s fist.

I love these Blood Drip Light String with Skulls for just $7.25, originally $29. I would love to see what those behind a thin veil of fog could do for a house. I bet it would creep younger kids right out. Speaking of fog, if you have one of those fog machines I blogged about earlier, then load up on Fog Solution for just $4.50, originally $9.

Here are a bunch more deals too:

There are some more expensive inflatable items for your lawn on sale as well. Quantities are really limited and things are seriously selling out as I write this post. I already had to remove one item because it went out of stock when I was half way through writing about it.

Shipping is free as per usual with Walmart Canada.

6 Last Minute Halloween Ideas

Posted by on October 30, 2014 at 8:00 PM

6 Last Minute Halloween Ideas

Tomorrow is Halloween and if you are like me, you have a busy life and may have waited until the last minute to get your Halloween things together.  You may need a last minute costume, or some last minute decorations, or even some last minute party ideas.  I am sure there a lot of people that are in this boat so I have put together a few last minute easy to do Halloween ideas for trick or treating, parties or for decorations in general.

1. Party Prop

6 Last Minute Halloween Ideas

This is a very simple and fast thing to do the day of your party.  Just put  rubber spider, worm, or any creepy crawler in you ice cube trays to have some festive ice for your guests drinks! I found this idea at Buzzfeed and I know I will be using it this year for my kids.

2. House Decoration

6 Last Minute Halloween Ideas

This last minute easy decoration is also from Buzzfeed.  Just take any plastic cup you may have, draw a jack-o-lantern face on them and use the flame-less candles underneath. You can make fun ghosts, pumpkins, Frankenstein faces and more and it will just take you minutes.

3. Party Game

6 Last Minute Halloween Ideas

This game from Daycare Answers is perfect for a kids party.  Basically, you get foods like spaghetti, grapes, a banana and put them in holes in a box and get the kids to guess what everything is.  They think that the items are guts, eyeballs and brains instead.  The complete instructions are listed through the link.

4. Halloween Food

6 Last Minute Halloween Ideas

I would have never thought of this myself.  Add some white icing and chocolate chips to a cupcake and you have a cupcake ghost.  This idea from Buzzfeed is perfect for a Halloween party this weekend!

5. Costume

6 Last Minute Halloween Ideas

This simple skeleton costume that I found at Coolest Homemade Costumes would work for a man, woman, or child.  You just need a black shirt and a white shirt and you make some cuts into the material.  You can add some face paint to make the costume even better but all of the directions are listed online.

6. Party Prop

6 Last Minute Halloween Ideas

This prop would be more for an adult party.  Print off a scary picture and put it in a jar with coloured juice to make it look like a body part in a jar.  I have to admit, this looks pretty cool even though it is morbid. This idea came from Morbid. They have it as an April Fool’s joke but it would make a great Halloween prop for any party.

Have a very fun and safe Halloween tomorrow night Moosers!

Amazon Canada: Rubies Costume DC Comics Action Trio Set Of 3 Halloween Costumes (Boys) | Was $40 Now $28

Posted by on October 30, 2014 at 9:00 AM

Amazon Canada: Rubies Costume DC Comics Action Trio Set Of 3 Halloween Costumes (Boys) | Was $40 Now $28

This is one cool three-pack! On Amazon, you can now save on a Rubies Costume DC Comics Action Trio Set Of 3 Halloween Costumes (Boys) – it includes a Batman costume, a Superman costume, and even a Robin costume! Normally $39.99, you can now get this DC Comics costume set for $27.22. You’ll also qualify for free shipping when you order this item! Although Halloween will be here tomorrow, you can always have this 3-pack ready for next year – or you can also pay extra and select “One Day Shipping” so you can have this costume set tomorrow! You can also have these costumes ready for a superhero party!

This Rubies Costume DC Comics Action Trio Set Of 3 Halloween Costumes (Boys) is suitable for boys that are from the ages of 3 to 10 years old. The Batman costume includes a Batman Tabard with an attached cape and headpiece. The Superman costume includes a Superman Tabard with an attached cape and some boot tops. Finally, the Robin costume includes a Robin Tabard with an attached cape, an eyemask, and some gauntlets. This is one cute set!

Are you all ready for Halloween tomorrow? One of my best friends is throwing a Halloween party on Saturday night, which should be a momentous affair! He’s a chef, so I’m sure that he’ll have plenty of delicious food available (and candy… I’m particularly a sucker for gummies). Although I won’t be a DC Comics action hero like Batman, Robin, or Superman, I’m going to dress up as The Million Dollar Man Ted Dibiase, an old-school WWF/WWE wrestler. It was a toss-up between that or The Big Boss Man!

I found it hard to find this item in Canada. If you were to buy this Rubies Costume DC Comics Action Trio Set Of 3 Halloween Costumes (Boys) from Amazon’s American site, it may seem like a good price at $17.95 US, but when I tried to see what it would cost after taxes and shipping to my Canadian address, it ended up being $34.86 US (plus the possible duties and fees that you’d receive at your door).

Listed below is a brief review of this Rubies Costume DC Comics Action Trio Set Of 3 Halloween Costumes (Boys) from a satisfied Amazon customer:

My twin 4 year olds are having a great time mixing and matching these costumes. They’re even looking like they’ll work for Halloween costumes!

Happy hunting, Bargainmoosers!

WalMart Canada: 17-FT Hanging Reaper With LED Eyes & Sound | Was $98 Now $49

Posted by on October 29, 2014 at 11:19 AM

WalMart Canada: 17 FT Hanging Reaper With LED Eyes & Sound | Was $98 Now $49

Halloween is just around the corner, Bargainmoosers! Although we’re 2 days away, you can start getting some sweet decorations ready for next year (unless you upgrade your shipping option on the WalMart website so you can get this item in time for Friday). For example, WalMart’s currently having a great deal on their 17-FT Hanging Reaper With LED Eyes & Sound – normally $98, you can now purchase this spooky decoration for $49. That’s 50% off the regular price! You’ll also get free shipping with your order. Nice!

This 17-FT Hanging Reaper With LED Eyes & Sound is the perfect decoration for your Halloween gathering. It looks creepy, it talks, and it has spooky LED eyes – the perfect item for this frightful candy-filled occasion!

The father of one of my best friends always went all-out every Halloween. Even to this day, he continually has plenty of awesome Halloween props and animated “creatures” that he has in front of his home for those that dare to try and get some candy! He even dresses up for the occasion, stoically handing out candy while he’s in costume, and it always cracks me up. Everyone has a favourite occasion to celebrate, and it’s obvious that his is Halloween! I would totally expect to see this 17-FT Hanging Reaper With LED Eyes & Sound in front of his house this year!

If you want to purchase a 17-FT Hanging Reaper With LED Eyes & Sound from Amazon’s American website, it will cost you $189.99 US! This is one great deal at WalMart, so check out this deal before it’s too late! I’ve included a brief review of this 17 foot reaper from a satisfied WalMart customer below:

We bought this at Walmart to hang in our entry way to scare our guest as we open the door.. he is massive and I’m positive he will do the trick. He was 100 dollars and I think he was well worth the money.

This may not be in stock for very long, so get this while you still can! Happy hunting, Bargainmoosers!

Amazon Canada: American Horror Story Season 1 Only $18

Posted by on October 28, 2014 at 3:00 PM

Amazon Canada: American Horror Story Season 1 Only $18

Amazon has some spooky deals going on for Halloween and selling some of their scarier titles on DVD and Blu-Ray at a significant reduction. One that I found that I needed to tell you about is the first season of American Horror Story. It is now only $17.99, with a regular price of $40.08.

If you haven’t heard of American Horror Story, you are in for a treat. I happened to hear about it on a site that listed all the shows you need to binge watch, so I did just that and binge watched the first season. What an incredible series! I have only recently found out that each season is a different story, so I’m sad to say goodbye to the characters I came to love in the first season. This means that each season is sort of like a little continuing movie that lasts a number of hours.

Basically, the first season is about a family who moves into a home that has been haunted by ghosts. You’ll question who is and isn’t a ghost all the way through the series, but you’ll definitely be scared and thrilled while watching this show. Jessica Lange plays an absolutely fantastic portrayal of a jilted and a bit psychotic next door neighbour, but you’ll still love her anyway.

I priced compared season one and found it for $34.99 at Best Buy and $39.97 at Walmart so you are essentially getting it for half the price.

There are a few other shows and movies available in the horror genre on Amazon for great deals like the second season of American Horror Story, which I need to see, and is now $23.99, regularly $49.98. The Omen Collection looks way too scary, but the price is not at only $17.49, with a regular price of $54.98.

Shipping is free when you spend over $25, so I wouldn’t hesitate to get both seasons one and two, because I know you’ll love it and want to pop in the next season as soon as the first ends.

WalMart Canada: Halloween Lab Monster On Clearance | Was $199 Now $100

Posted by on October 26, 2014 at 9:30 AM

WalMart Canada: Halloween Lab Monster On Clearance | Was $199 Now $100

Now that Halloween is around the corner, it’s a good time to save on some much-needed spooky decorations! This particular piece of merchandise caught my eye for three reasons: It’s huge, it’s scary, and it’s an obvious Frankenstein monster look-alike! Normally $199, you can now buy this awesome Lab Monster for $99.50. Best of all, you’ll get free shipping with your order! This would be a great thing to have in time for Halloween!

There isn’t a lot of information available about this life-sized animated Lab Monster, but according to the description, it lights up as well. I guess a picture is worth a thousand words in this case – I mean take a look  at this movie monster! It’s massive, it’s intimidating, and it’s the perfect thing to have on your porch for Halloween for many years to come! I’m sure it would also be a big hit at a Halloween party, so you can get a few extra usages out of this intriguing yet spooky decoration.

Though this product doesn’t have the official Frankenstein license, it still gets the job done. Plus, you can always try to scare your friends or your significant other with it – just sneak it into their closet and see what happens! Maybe I’m still just a big kid, but I think that would be hilarious – especially if you record their reaction on video!

If you wanted to buy an official animated Frankenstein monster from The Spirit Of Halloween, it would cost you $299.99 US, so this is a great deal. Without any further ado, here is Leonardo DiCaprio doing his best impression of the Frankenstein monster.

This deal won’t be around for long (we all know how WalMart clearance items for products like this sell out pretty quickly), so check this out if you want to have a great discount on an awesome prop. Happy hunting, Bargainmoosers!

6 Homemade Halloween Decorations that are Practically Free

Posted by on October 23, 2014 at 8:00 PM

6 Homemade Halloween Decorations that are Practically Free

Halloween is one of my favourite holidays to celebrate, partly because it is a lot of fun to decorate my house inside and out.  I seem to buy new decorations every single year and my husband has finally put his foot down this year and gave me a budget.  Being the crafty, savings-type person I am, I decided instead of buying new things this year, I am going to make the decorations myself.  Not only will this save us money, but my kids can join in the fun and make some scary and spooky decorations as well.

I hit up some great websites to see if I could find some DIY decorations and was shocked at how many awesome ideas are out there.  Here are a few of the great inexpensive Halloween decoration I found online, that you can make yourself. Some of them are creepy, some of them are kid friendly but all of them are perfect for this holiday.

1. Mummy Doors

6 Homemade Halloween Decorations that are Practically Free

This idea from Keeping It Simple is such a fun idea for the whole family to do.  Instead of buying the supplies like they suggest, I suggest you use toilet paper and make your own mummy eyes out of cardboard.

2. Milk Jug Ghosts

6 Homemade Halloween Decorations that are Practically Free

I have a family of four so we go through a lot of milk jugs and usually just recycle them.  This is a great way to recycle them in a different way. The easy directions are on Eighteen25 so you can make your own.

3. Cardboard Cutouts

6 Homemade Halloween Decorations that are Practically Free

This is definitely a creepy decoration but I love it!  Just make some cardboard cutouts in the shape of people, paint them black and cut out the eyes. I found this at Brastwurst Tumblr and it would be perfect for a party.

4. Spider

6 Homemade Halloween Decorations that are Practically Free

With this DIY craft, you can use some items around the house to create a huge spider for the inside or the outside of your house. You can make it fun or scary.  All of the directions for this spider are posted on Listotic.

5. Glowing Eyes

6 Homemade Halloween Decorations that are Practically Free

This has to be the cheapest and easiest craft idea.  I can’t believe I have never thought of this before. Just take a toilet paper roll and cut out different eyes and stick a dollar store glow stick in it to hang outside. These perfect decorations are from Her Campus.

6. Frankenstein Cans

6 Homemade Halloween Decorations that are Practically Free

This is another fun craft to do with your recycling at home. Paint some cans green and black and add some wine corks and googly eyes and you will have your very own Frankensteins for Halloween. You can find this idea at Brew My Tea.

What homemade Halloween decorations have you made in the past Moosers?

Happy Halloween!

Halloween Coupon Codes Roundup

At the beginning of the month, we did a roundup of the great Halloween costume couponsbut there is so much more to save on at Halloween time than just costumes.  Most companies put out special coupon codes in honour of different holidays even if they sell nothing remotely close to what the holiday is about.  For example, a lot of airlines put out coupons for deals on travel for Halloween even though it is not really a holiday where people will do travelling.  The way I look at it, I will take advantage of those discounts no matter the reason behind them.

Since Halloween is almost a week away now, there are a lot of Halloween themed promo codes popping up to take advantage of, and we want to share some of them with you in this Halloween Coupon Code Roundup.

Teleflora - Use the promo code AFTREAT to get 15% off all Halloween merchandise until October 31st.

Aartech Canada- Save 5% on your order of $300 or more with the coupon BOO until October 31st.

Joe Fresh- Use either TREAT10, TREAT20, or TREAT60 to get a voucher fro future purchases until October 26th.

Wordans - You can use the coupon HALLOWEEN20 to save yourself 20% on your entire order for a limited time only.

Ardene- The coupon code ARDENEHALLOWEEN will save you 20% on all orders of $100 or more until October 31st.

KidoodleGet two months of free online children’s television with code SPOOKY.

LeapFrog Canada- The coupon CANDY will get you free shipping and $15 off orders of $50 or more until October 24th.

1800Flowers.ca - The coupon HALLOWEEN20 will save you 20% on all Halloween items until October 31st.

Encore CouponGet $5 off Halloween fonts with this coupon HLWNFONT for a limited time only.

Flat Iron Experts – Get 20% off all orders over $100 with code HALLO2014.

As you can see, we have a pretty large variety of Halloween coupon codes posted on the Bargainmoose coupon forum and this is just a small fraction of them. The closer we get to Halloween, the more fun coupons like these ones you will see joining the forum.  You don’t have to actually buy Halloween items to save for this holiday.

Happy Halloween Shopping Moosers!

Amazon Canada: 6-12 Months Green Lantern Costume Just $5 *HOT*

Posted by on October 21, 2014 at 1:42 PM

Amazon Canada: 6 12 Months Green Lantern Costume Just $5 *HOT*

Amazon Canada has a really hot deal on this Justice League Green Lantern Romper Costume for six to twelve month old children. Originally $29.99, the costume is on sale for $5.14!

Seriously! It is nine days before Halloween and you still have time to get a costume shipped in to you from Amazon Canada. This is the perfect deal if you have a young child who needs a costume for Halloween! You are saving 83% on this cute little officially licensed super hero costume. The romper style costume opens from the bottom for easy diaper changes (yay!). There is also an infant version but it is far more expensive ($25) and sold out.

There are really good reviews for this costume on Amazon.com. One reviewer said:

The costume is pretty well made, soft and from our little guys smiles I believe, comfortable. It has gone through the wash and came out okay. The buttons snap together easy and hold tight. The size is on the upper level of the age range ie 6-12 is a true 12 and not a 6. Very happy with the purchase.

Green Lantern is a cool dude, and they are going to be releasing another Green Lantern movie when your kid, who wears this now, is nearly old enough to see the movie. They are estimating the next Green Lantern movie will come out in 2020!

Now, this costume qualifies for free shipping on its own if you have a Prime account. You can easily sign up for a one-month trial of Family Prime and get this costume shipped to you for free. There is also a six-month free trial of Student Prime you can sign up for as well and then get this shipped free of charge. If you do not have a Prime account and have already exhausted both free trials, then you can get free shipping on orders of $25 or more. Shipping under that will only cost you a few dollars if my estimations are correct ($2.99 base cost + $1.49 per lb.).

Quantities are limited and selling out quickly! Get yours while you can. Even if the product goes out of stock you can still buy it from Amazon; however, you might not get it in time for Halloween unless they restock it quickly.

Walmart Canada: 50% Off 400W Fog Machine – Now $14.50

Posted by on October 21, 2014 at 1:30 PM

Walmart Canada: 50% Off 400W Fog Machine   Now $14.50

Walmart Canada has a 400W fog machine just perfect for Halloween on sale for $14.50 from $29 with free shipping.

Oh, the many things you can use a fog machine for. The best, of course, is to place it near your front entrance and obscure the door through a pillar of fog. Then, have something triggered via motion sensor that pops out of the fog when someone walks up to your house to Trick or Treat. It will scare them senseless!

The fog machine comes with a wireless control set (transmitter, receiver), a handle, and two screws for mounting your fog machine. It does not come with fog juice; you will have to buy that separately. This is a great little unit at a cheap price for increasing your scares or using as decor. Here is what one reviewer said:

I bought this machine 2 weeks ago for parties that i host inside my apartment. The unit runs great, but it’s a good idea to buy a lot of juice. up to now, i am really satisfied with my purchase. The wireless controller is an awesome idea, works really well.

Now, if you are looking for a bigger, scarier, and foggier fog machine, then I have the unit for you. This 1000W fog machine is on sale from $59 down to $29.50. Yes, it is also 50% off and you get over twice the watts. This machine comes with a wired remote and it is recommended for indoor use. You could always buy two and have the first unit for your front door and the second unit to fill a room with fog for your awesome Halloween party.

Either way, I think both of these are fantastic buys at 50% off. Be sure to pick up some fog juice to make your machines run. A half-gallon of Fog Solution costs $9 at Walmart Canada. One reviewer said:

Didn’t have high hopes for this one considering the price . After trying I was more than happy with the fog output . Almost as dense as brand name fluid I normally buy . Will purchase more of this very soon .

All my local stores are sold out of the stuff so I expect to see some fog machines running in my city soon.

By the way, I had super problems with getting the ‘add to cart’ button to show on Firefox. I had to change my browser to Chrome. If you have problems, try that.

WalMart Canada: Save 50% On Select Halloween Clearance Items

WalMart Canada: Save 50% On Select Halloween Clearance Items

We love hearing about clearance sales! Today, WalMart has some of their Halloween products on clearance, which can help you all save 50% on some of these spooky products! Some of the items that you can save 50% on include this Animated Airblown Inflatable Black Cat On Pumpkin ($29.50 – was $59), a 24-Piece Light Up Tombstone Set ($9.50 – was $19), Airblown Inflatable Rainbow Wings ($5, was $10), and even a Colossal Carving Kit ($3, was $6). You’ll also get free shipping with your order! You can check out more clearance items by clicking on the link below.

There are also some other great items that you can save 50% on, like this adorable Iron Man Candy Holder ($14.50 – was $29), a Giant Airblown Inflatable Pumpkin Reaper ($39.50 – was $79), an Airblown Inflatable Witch With Cauldron ($17 – was $34), and my personal favourite, this Animated Airblown Inflatable Cat ($39.50 – was $79).

If you’ve been procrastinating and still haven’t purchased any Halloween decorations or items, then this clearance sale will certainly be appealing to you. Even if you don’t usually get Halloween decorations, you should at least consider getting a Colossal Carving Kit - after all, it’s incredibly fun to carve a pumpkin!

I think it’s fun to carve pumpkins, especially when you can print off a trace sheet online to help you make a wonderful Jack-O-Lantern! My challenge this year will be to carve Hulk Hogan’s Fu Manchu moustache on to a pumpkin – wish me luck!

These are some great prices for these items! For example, the Iron Man Candy Holder that’s currently selling for $14.50 at WalMart is $32.50 at Entertainment Earth! I’ve included a brief review of the Airblown Inflatable Rainbow Wings from a satisfied WalMart customer below:

Bought this for my niece and she loves it!! All you need is a dress(in my niece’s case, a second hand prom dress) and add those wings – VOILA! A beautiful fairy!

7 Unique Homemade Halloween Costumes

Posted by on October 16, 2014 at 8:00 PM

7 Unique Homemade Halloween Costumes

One of my favourite holidays is fast approaching and the one thing everyone will need is a costume.  With Halloween being on a Friday this year, there are likely to be parties for young and old.  Not only do I hate spending a fortune on a costume, I don’t like how the store bought costumes all look the same and everyone has them.  I prefer the good, old fashioned, homemade costume and I have rounded up some great ideas for young and old to make your own costume this year.  It will save you money and you will be the hit of the party!

1. Smurf

7 Unique Homemade Halloween Costumes

This is a costume that would look adorable on a baby but really any aged person could wear.  I found it over at Tip Junkie and it is very easy to make.  Just use some white tights, a blue shirt and make a white hat and ball tail.  If you want to be Smurfette, just add a yellow wig.

2. Octopus

7 Unique Homemade Halloween Costumes

This is such a fun costume for kids , but really can be for someone of any age.  At Giggles Galore, they give you step by step direction on how to make the legs and the hat.  You can choose any colour you want and just match it to a shirt you have in your closet.

3. Prego Pasta Sauce

7 Unique Homemade Halloween Costumes

I love this idea for a pregnant woman.  I was huge when I was pregnant and it is not easy to figure out a costume.  With this one from Cuffed for Life, you can wear your jeans and a red shirt and all you need to do is buy some felt for the details on the front.  You can add some plastic cutlery to your hair for a fun touch as well.

4. Cactus

7 Unique Homemade Halloween Costumes

I just love this costume and how easy it is to make!  All you need is green sweat pants and a green shirt to wear and a box of whites straws.  You pin the straws on all over for the prickles and you are an instant cactus. (Idea from Inventor Spot)

5. Beanie Babies

7 Unique Homemade Halloween Costumes

This adult costume is perfect for a party or the bar.  It is a more imaginative version of the same old skimpy cat, mouse, and other animal costumes.  You can still dress in your sexy Halloween animal costume but by adding the big heart tag in the front, (with some simple cardboard) you have a creative fun spin!  I found this costume idea over at Her Campus.

6. Smores Family

7 Unique Homemade Halloween Costumes

This is such an awesome idea for a family to do together. For the actual easy directions on how to make each piece, they are posted up on Cheerios & Lattes.

What are you dressing up as this year for Halloween Moosers?

American Apparel: Unisex Shiny Wind Breaker Now $18 (Was $62)

Posted by on October 15, 2014 at 7:00 PM

American Apparel: Unisex Shiny Wind Breaker Now $18 (Was $62)

Get a deal on this unisex Shiny Wind Breaker from American Apparel Canada. Originally $62, the windbreak is on sale for only $18.

The windbreaker comes in gold, red, or black. The black is the most versatile and has the best size range still available. Oddly enough, when you choose to view this on the girl models, the red colour disappears and there is an extra size or two available in the other colours. I have included both links so you can see the full gambit of their size and colour options. Sizes start at XXS and go up to XL.

The black I could see totally working with your casual everyday outfit. However, the red and gold options are fantastic for using to create your own superhero costume. Superheroes like The Flash, Superman, and Shazam have a lot of red in their costumes, so you can incorporate the jacket into a warmer version of your favourite superhero. Just zip up the red jacket and paint a lightning bolt on the front of it. We are talking about Halloween during a Canadian winter here! Many superheroes also have a good amount of gold in their costume as well making a gold jacket perfect for your own superhero interpretation. You could even use the black jacket as the base for a Catwoman costume – she is popular!

In fact, American Apparel has an entire section full of sale items that could be good for Halloween. Pick up a Nylon Tricot Short Short for just $5 (was $24). The black pair would make a good base for many costumes like Catwoman, Zatana, and more.

These Nylon Spandex Micro-Mesh Leggings were $35 and are now $10 a pair. Pick up a red pair for your Poison Ivy costume, a white pair for any number of ice queens, and whatever else you have want to dress up as. I would personally use the white leggings with my Steampunk White Rabbit costume. That is the beauty of self-assembled costumes; you can reuse the pieces for different costumes.

Shipping is free on orders of $60 or more. For orders under $60, pay just $8 flat rate. As you are saving $44 per jacket not to mention the extra savings if you buy anything else, I think it is worth the shipping cost even if you are just ordering a couple things.

Hey Moosers! Do you make your own costumes or buy pre-assembled costumes for Halloween?
