Boys Halloween Costumes Under $10.00

Boys don't want to dress up as fluffy animals or be as cute as a button, in reality boys want to wear the scariest and most gruesome looking costumes ever and the more blood thirsty that they look the happier they are.

My son Bryan helped me pick out these three costumes saying that he would love to wear any single one of them.

Bryan loves ghosts and this one he says is great, just add a drop or two of fake blood splattered all over and this costume would be "Mega Scary". This ghost costume was one of the best that I found and of course it was one of the cheapest too.

Ninja Warrior again Bryan loved this ninja costume it really is his dream to be a ninja, even if he does run away at the first sign of violence. Of course he did want some fake blood splattered on the costume to make it look like he had been in a fight.

I really am beginning to think that my son might just need some psychiatric help he loved this costume more than any of the others that we looked at. An axe murderer is now top of his list for this upcoming Halloween and guess what he wants his costume and axe splattered with fake blood. I do worry about him sometimes.

      My stepson wanted to be a mechanic one year. Easy to do! He had a blue jumpsuit for a boy. I used an eyebrow pencil to dirty up his face. Put a red bandanna hankie hanging out from his pocket.

      My mother took 3 sets of pj's, dyed them brown which made the three of us, "The Three Bears."
