It's that fun time of year again, when we embrace our inner kid and dress up to impress while knocking on random people's doors, visiting the local festivals and having our own little pumpkin parties with friends....oh wait, is that just me that does that? Who says the kids just get to dress up and have all the fun?
But if you thought that costume buying for the kids was expensive, just imagine what it's like trying to come up with an adult costume on a budget.
A few years ago I was invited to a grown-up Halloween party. I spent weeks trying to figure out the perfect costume, one that would properly reflect my personality. Sure, I thought about Star Trek uniforms and Jedi robes, but those seemed kind of on-the-nose...and expensive.

Halloween is just a little over a week away and soon enough the trick or treaters will be rapping upon your door. Haven't stocked up on Snickers bars and candy corn or figured out what to wear yet? Never fear, the Blog & Save is here to help!
Halloween is right around the corner. Men, unlike women, do not like to shell out money for one outfit they will probably never wear again. You can save money, buy something you would wear and still have a costume. Go as Jason Voorhees! Remember the movie "Friday the 13th"? The iconic hockey mask is that extra accessory you may not find useful unless you play rollerblade or street hockey.
The rest of the terror ensemble you can buy at Macy's.
Look! Up in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! It's…well, it's not quite Superman--but hey, being the Green Lantern is just about as cool, minus the dorky name. As a member of the Green Lantern Corps, you can wield the powers of your imagination to fly, harness destructive plasma beams to fight criminals, travel through time and space, utilize telepathy, become invisible and more. There's really no limit on what you can do as a Green Lantern. (Unless you're up against yellow objects. For some reason your powers are useless against them--go figure...)
