The best things in life are free—or at least close to it. That’s especially true of Halloween costumes, which can easily come with a ridic price tag. ($60 for some tattered rags that will hopefully make you look like Rey from Star Wars? We think not.)

To get you started, here are nine cheap Halloween costumes that won’t break the bank.

Prince Harry & Meghan Markle
The romance of the year and with a Canadian connection to boot! Amplify your resemblance to the prince and princess-hopeful with some classic semi-formalwear. The two share a laidback, jetset style, so for Harry, try a collared shirt left unbuttoned and with sleeves pushed up to the elbows. For Meghan, a cocktail dress in a classic silhouette (from Reitmans, perhaps?) and some soft, loose waves might pair quite nicely with an aspirational tiara.
