We've been invited to a Halloween party, and I hate dishing out $$ for costumes.

I wore my costume yesterday and came in 1st place. It was not an awesome costume, but because so few ladies dressed up I was a shoe in. I think I was the most creative. My costume cost me less than $4 since I had almost everything at home already.

Thanks! I think I'm going to try making a "Cereal Killer" with little boxes of cereal and bloody plastic knives!

I'm not sure if any of these will work for you since they are geared more towards kids, but they might give you some ideas:

I'm not terribly creative, the folks on the Holiday board might have some suggestions for you: http://forums.ivillage.com/t5/Holidays/ct-p/iv-prholidays
