Halloween on the cheap

Last year, I spotted a partier downtown on Halloween literally wearing just lingerie.

When somebody asked her who she was supposed to be, she just kind of stared back with a blank expression.

Yeah, $500 Chewbacca getups are great...but if finances are tough, get rid of the idea that you need to "be" somebody.

The black wings featured in the pic above retail for just $15 at Night Moves. Pair those babies with something lacy and -- bam! -- you already look a lot hotter than the night's token "plug and socket" couple.

Cheap options exist if you want a concept costume, though.

This piece notes how lots of people are dressing up as the swine flu this year.

Buy a plastic pig nose, stick a bottle of Pepto around your neck and you're good to go. Bonus points if pink lingerie is involved.
