Used Halloween costumes for adults, our top picks this year

Spent too many consecutive years as a sexy nurse or a boring zombie? Have you never veered far from the “throw a white sheet over your body and call yourself a ghost” costume? If you don’t have time to be creative, do not worry, we’ve got some ideas and there are a lot more to be had across the wonderful worldwide web. We’ve thrown some simple options in there too, there doesn’t have to be a craft bonanza to still look awesome.

Best place to buy Halloween costumes? Particularly used Halloween costumes that spare the wallet and the landfill? On your local site of course!

To find the best used Halloween costumes, search early in the season. Head to the Costumes category, which is in the Clothing category. You can also search for certain words such as: Halloween, Halloween costumes, costumes, witch, vampire and adult squirrel costume (yes indeed we’ve seen more than one!).

Price-wise, costumes on our sites run at approximately a quarter of the new price. There are so many bargains, you’ve got to act fast!

A few Halloween costume ideas:

Black & white photograph

So much fun! Root through our sites for grey, black and white clothes and use black and white face paint mixed together to make a grey tone for any skin that’s showing. Add talcum powder to your hair for and voila, instant old-school photo shoot. Look up old photos online for inspiration.

Christmas tree

Hey Christmas lover! This is one of the simplest used Halloween costumes around. This is the perfect time to grab Christmas decorations from your local site as most people won’t be searching until November. Wear all green clothes or wrap your body in green fabric and adorn yourself! Hang popcorn strands from your neck and add a star to your hair. Happy holidays!

The name’s Bond

This is a great group costume option and so easy. Everyone can represent a different Bond film. Gold eyeshadow – Goldeneye, glue old pennies to your trousers, skirt or dress – Miss Moneypenny, fake grill – Jaws, piece of cardboard – Timothy Dalton. Easy.

Rock star

Some rock stars take little effort, just choose their most iconic feature and go with it. For example, for Courtney Love, smear your lipstick, tussle your blonde hair, don a nightdress and tiara and there you go. You may get mistaken for the living dead; perfect. If the rock star is deal, then rock star zombie it is!

Scroll and see what happens!

For little to no effort, position yourself with snacks on your sofa and scroll through our used costume category. Let the ideas come to you. Our favourite picks this year? As follows:  this $10 Ninja costume$10 Wilma Flintstones costume, and this amazing Ironman costume! There are also lots of wanted ads in our costumes categories, so if you have last year’s hanging around, now’s the time to post it!
