There’s one term that has been swirling around social media this year: fake news. Thanks to the 2016 presidential election between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton “fake news” has taken on a whole meaning. It has become a huge popular catchphrase, which can give you a clever idea for creating your Halloween look. With a few simple and affordable pieces, you can DIY your own fake news Halloween costume this year. One thing’s for sure, this costume is sure to be a hit.
You may have already seen the fake news Halloween costume that has been circulating around Facebook and Twitter. You can purchase the fake news dress yourself by ordering it online from Yandy.com. It is about $55 though, which is pretty pricey for a costume that you’re only going to wear once. Luckily, we’ve got more options for how you can create your own fake news costume for much cheaper. So, stay tuned for that.

We’ve get an extra option for you if you want to pull off the fake news look but don’t want to purchase the Yandy dress. You can purchase this newsprint tank top off of Amazon for less than $15, the price ranges depending on the size that your order.
You can also pair these newsprint leggings, which you can order off of Amazon, with your tank. Together, the tank top and leggings will cost you just a little more than $25 max– which is so much cheaper than the $55 fake news Halloween dress.
The perfect inexpensive finishing touch to your costume is this fake news sticker you can order online for less than $5. You can stick this onto your newsprint tank top, or anywhere on your DIY costume for that matter, so you can make it super obvious what you’re dressed up as. This creative option still remains cheaper than the fake news dress alone even with the additional charge for the sticker.
