Our latest obsession is GreatGets.com's Daily Halloween Costume Series. We don't follow many sites religiously but we have been loving the creativity of the costume ideas and GreatGets.com‘s spot on pulse on trends. We are also enjoying the diversity of their posts. Yesterday they featured three great wear-again plus size costumes including our favorite Morton Salt Girl costume for under $30.00. We especially like that they are willing to spend time and do their research. Since their goal was to assemble a cute teen costume for under $30.00, rather than taking the easy path and turning to traditional costume sites like HalloweenCostumes.com, instead they found a dresses on sale on sale at Modcloth and then created a costume around the dress. We also really like both the Rose Fairy costume and their version of a Great Gatsby Roaring '20s Garden Party Costume. The best part is that you really can wear all three dresses again without feeling you are wearing your Halloween costume. We guess that's what makes these costumes great gets!
