It’s already October, which means we have another four weeks before we panic and try to slap together a Halloween costume. Maybe you’re planning ahead better than we are. To that end, we’ve gathered twenty-five geeky Halloween costumes which can be recreated on a small budget.

Last year’s geeky Halloween costumes are collected here, and last year’s list of cheap homemade Halloween costumes are collected here.
