Boo on a budget
Zeezo’s in downtown Colorado Springs is as busy as a florist on Valentine’s Day.
“The last week or so we have those people that need an idea or they get invited to a party,” said Karl Brevik, manager at the well known costume store.
So what is flying out the door this year for Halloween?
“Dumb and Dumber, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, a lot of the 90’s kids stuff is making a big resurgence,” Brevik said.
Also, he says you can never go wrong with pop culture.
“What does the fox say; we are out of fox tails and fox ears and have been for awhile. Also a lot of Beetlejuice costumes because it looks like Robin Thicke from the Miley Cirus, MTV show,” Brevik said.
Even if you can only say “Boo!” on a budget, there are as many options as you can imagine.
“Whenever you go for a low cost costume, it’s about knowing what you have and then finding a way to accessorize it,” Brevik said.
An example he showed was liquid latex to go along with a torn up old shirt and pants and you can be a zombie.
“Really it’s about finding that emotional connection with whoever you’re trying to hang out with. Anyone who can look at you and say I know who you are!” Brevik said.
Watch the story above with some $10-and-under costume ideas we came up with.
