What scares me the most on Halloween is the amount of money people dump into costumes! All together for three costumes, our family total was under $8. We borrowed or repurposed. We crafted and tinkered. Batman?
No cost, all items on hand.
A clearance tutu at Meijers $3, an old shirt $0, and felt sheets $0.60.
No problem. A shirt in Griffindor colors $0, a borrowed Griffindor robe and scarf $0, and a broom from home.
A small face paint kit for Kitty and a scar, $3.99.
Priceless, not overpriced, fun.
