Expensive Halloween costumes, 2012 edition
Some folks go overboard on their cookie baking at Christmastime. Others throw awesome Fourth of July celebrations. And then there are the individuals who love to go all out with their Halloween costumes. While many go the homemade route, those with bigger budgets might be considering purchasing something really elaborate. We took a moment to surf the web in search of the newest, priciest get ups on the market this season, from LED masks to body armor to mustaches.
Sometimes playing the video game just isn't enough. Sometimes you want to live the dream. With this one-size-fits-all costume, you can do just that. Unfortunately, the price tag will probably put a big dent in your gaming budget.
Frankly, there isn't much about this costume that reads "winged horse." However, this pricey look could potentially be pretty versatile. With a few tweaks each year, you can turn it into a variety of get ups, including a sexy angel, a sexy snow bunny, a sexy white cat, or a sexy... hooker.
After Halloween you can use this mask as super-freaky decor in an office, a bedroom, or a closet shelf.
This historically accurate garment can be reused as a Renaissance Festival getup. However, should you actually find yourself magically transported back to the time of Marie Antoinette, you're going to want to cover your legs up.
Not included: Chris Hemsworth's pecs.
Sure, the outfit is basically drapery, but having glue-on eyebrows like that is priceless.
Paired with the Vicious Viking, it's a power-couple costume look.
