Well, I am on a roll now. I really am the Queen of Halloween Costume Ideas. It was wonderful to see the great comments from my first hit, “Queen of Halloween Costume Ideas….’Tis True”, and to prove I am not just any one hit wonder, I will offer up my next Halloween blog for your approval. I think I have better ideas on this one. Enjoy! These are easy, quick ideas that are cheap or will not cost you a penny.
