Anyone who has ever put a Halloween costume together has realized that it is hard to be good at playing dress up without making serious investments. In theory, just copying something from a picture should be a simple task, but it requires a lot creativity and innovation to really capture the essence of whatever thing you are trying to be. This is no mean feat, so we have to show some appreciation for those who do it well — especially when they do it on a budget. Nobody knows this better than @LOWCOSTCOSPLAY, who takes on all manner of different characters armed with only some simple household props. From movie protagonists to famous memes, nothing is safe from his expert costuming. It gives some hilarious results. Listed below are a few of his most successful ones, and they are all pretty impressive. The bar for next year’s Halloween parties has just been raised.
