A mother from Alberta, Canada, is proving that you don't have to spend an exorbitant amount of money on a Halloween costume.

Throughout the month of October, Danielle Bevens is sharing pictures featuring her two sons in impressive handmade costumes from materials found around the house – all under $5.


After she impressed her followers last year, Bevens continued the masquerade for a second year.

"Guys, I've been so excited to share with you all of our hard work this year!," she wrote on her Instagram post for the first photo this month.



"To give you the gist this is the second year I've dressed up the boys throughout the month!"
"Typically each costume is made for less than $5 and is usually made of stuff you can find around the house!"

Bevens explains how she constructed the porcupine costume her son Toby is proudly wearing in the picture. He looks sharp in his spiky onesie.

"So, with a lot of help from my hot glue gun, an old brown pillow case and a onesie I thrifted I present to you, Toby the perfect porcupine!"

Here's a picture of her son Noah wishing every Canadian a happy Thanksgiving. He brought the salad.



"We figured you might want a little side of salad with all that turkey and mashed potatoes your indulging in!" wrote Bevens.

"This was sooo fun to make, super easy and of course you can add your own toppings. 😉 Noah the Shapewise Salad! #glutenfreecostumes"

A mini version of the Cousin Eddie character from National Lampoon's Vacation is prominently featured here.




"If you don't get it then you're in serious need of a good National Lampoons marathon!"
"This one required zero effort, Mother Nature rushing winter and a diehard love for Christmas movies. So, without further ado I present you Toby in his very accurate representation of Cousin Eddie! 👌🏻😂😍 #theshitterwasfull"

Toby makes another appearance, this time as a Rubik's Cube. Apparently, he wasn't very happy about wearing the costume. How do you solve a problem like Toby?



"Toby wasn't thrilled about being a Rubik's Cube but I happened to think it suited him perfectly!"
"He's pretty much just as complicated to be honest! This costume however was not! I didn't spend a penny on this one guys! So cute and definitely an easy and inexpensive option! Toby the Rockin Rubik's cube!"

Bevens may not be hawking her wonderful Halloween creations online, but her boys sure know how to sell it!

Your home should be sanctuary, which is to say that we hope that nothing bad ever happens once we move in. Unfortunately, life doesn't always work out that way, and sometimes things happen that unnerve the hell out of us.

Is there anything more creepy than being alone at home... only to get the feeling that you're not alone at all? What if you were being watched?! It's the stuff of nightmares, isn't it? And I haven't even touched on the possibility of paranormal activity yet...

People Describe The Moment They Realized They've Been Doing Something Wrong For Years

It can be very embarrassing when you pronounce words wrong. Let's face it, the English language is super complicated, especially if you're learning it for the first time. You can't always trust yourself to pronounce things phonetically either because of all the different rules!

Recently, a relative pronounced the word "epitome" like "epi-tome." They were embarrassed when I corrected them. I told them that it wasn't a big deal, though they did note that they love that word, have used it for a long time, and that no one corrected them until that moment...

Ouch.

People told their stories after Redditor adeptwarrior asked the online community,

"What's an 'oh sh*t' moment where you realised you've been doing something the wrong way for years?"
