How much are you willing to spend on a Halloween costume?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on October 28, 2005
“A hundred bucks if it was the most fabulous costume ever. I was just contemplating buying a pair of $43 leg warmers to be Jane Fonda.”
“I’ve never spent any money on one. I always put something together from what I already have.”
“The most I’ve ever spent was $100 to be a big gorilla at a neighborhood Halloween party. Nobody knew who I was for weeks afterwards, so it was worth it. That’s definitely the most I’ll ever spend though.”
“I’d say $15. It forces you to be creative if you don’t spend very much money, but my parents probably spent around $40 on my costume when I was a kid.”
