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.

You’ll also need to get yourself a pair of fake glasses for your Halloween look this year. These black-rimmed glasses from Party City are super affordable ringing in at just $6.99. Odds are, someone you know is even bound to have a pair of these from their own past Halloween nerd costumes.

Now it’s time for shoes. To make your look more sexy, you can opt for a pair of sky-high red pumps. These ones from Forever 21 are less than $30 and they’re stylish enough that you can wear them long after Halloween is over.
