I don't ever like to spend a lot of money on "costumes", and usually like to come up with something from what I already own.
Last year my daughter wanted to be a BAT! For this costume, the only thing I had to buy were the bat wings, which I bought sometime the week before Halloween...so it was discounted.
The rest of her outfit were just items she already owned.
For the "face painting"...it's actually black eye liner and purple eye shadow...
Skirt and Tights were bought from Target!
Boots from Stride Rite.
Bat Wings from a Halloween shop.
I hope maybe that sparked some ideas to create your own Bat Costume! =)
