Looking for a cheap and easy Halloween costume this year? My boyfriend and I went as Howie and a case girl from the game show "Deal or No Deal" one year for a Hollywood theme party.

I found a fancy black halter dress and heels from Forever 21 (on sale). I wore fake diamond earings and a bracelet I got at Target. I curled my hair and fluffed it like the girls on the show. My guy already had a nice suit and borrowed a nice silky shirt and tie from his brother. He shaved his face down to a "sole" patch that howie wears. He buzzed his already short hair shorter to give it a bald look.

I found a silver briefcase on Ebay for around $15 and put a black 11 on the outside. On the inside I put the million dollars. We went around the party asking people would take the deal.



Sadly this is the ONLY picture we have of the night. I thought my camera was fully charged - but it died right after we took the ONE and ONLY picture of the night. Thank goodness because it I have it framed and on my bedside table!
