Low on cash? You can still have some Halloween fun if you make your own costume. Take your inspiration from these amazing collection of costumes made mostly from recycled materials.

Warriors seem to be a favourite theme and these costumes are some of the best. The PET soda bottle warrior constructed her costume by splicing up the bottles and sewing them together with nylon thread. Then there is the cute little samurai warrior with corrugated card armour which contrasts with the big scary samurai warrior who used Rubbermaid 32-gallon garbage cans and rubber stoppers!

Robots and cyborgs are also popular like the spotlighted detergent bottle robot. It is hard though, to figure out what the various materials were used for the recycled mutant cyborg costume but he looks pretty creepy.

Animal costumes like the alligator costume from boxes and the teddy bear one from a mutilated soft toy are ingenious as is the bat costume assembled from an old black umbrella.

The Lego Man was made from painted styrofoam and Macho Man shows his sensitive side with a ton of old baby dolls stuck to him!
