Here’s the thing about being fat at Halloween: it sucks. Commercial costume choices are limited and are either sleazy or deliberately make fun of your body size. Plus, they are damned expensive.
But those of us with bigger bodies don’t have to skip the Halloween fun. My daughter is begging me to dress up with her this year for trick-or-treating and her school is having a party for the families that day, so it’s time for me to explore some costume options that are easy to put together and not too expensive.
I’ve been so surprised what I’ve found! Many of these costumes aren’t specific to plus size people, but are still great for all body sizes. You will have a blast with any of these!
