Last-minute Halloween costumes
Wendy Maeda / Globe staff
Waited until the last minute to plan your costume? Lucky for you, we did all the legwork. The mission was simple: Put together a group of costumes for less than $100. We shopped our closets, borrowed things from friends, and bought supplies from unexpected places like a hardware store, the supermarket, and Target. No prepackaged outfits or wigs here, folks.
This feature originally ran in 2010, but the pricing information has been updated with 2011 costs.
