This is the easiest Halloween costume I’ve ever made, and it only cost about $5 to buy the supplies. It took me less than a half hour to complete it.
One Purple T-shirt
One Bag of Purple Balloons
One Green Handkerchief
Handful of Safety Pins
Start by blowing up several balloons. I didn’t blow mine up very full, because overinflated balloons are more likely to pop. Pin each balloon to the shirt by sticking a safety pin through the tail of the balloon. Fill in the space, and use as many as you like. I decided not to pin any balloons to the back because that makes it easier to sit in a car.
Put on the shirt and decide if there are enough balloons. Then tie the green handkerchief around your neck to represent the grape leaves, and you’re ready to go trick-or-treating!
Be careful going down stairs and walking in the dark! The balloons make it hard to see your feet.
Make this a group costume by having each person dress as a different color of grape–green, red, and purple.
Carry a bottle of wine and tell people you’re Dionysus, the Greek god of wine!
