Deciding on a costume for a party or Halloween is never easy. Buying or renting costumes can also be an expensive investment, especially if you go to a lot of themed parties. An easy and affordable way to stand out at any party, however, is to dress up as your favourite fruit. There are so many different types of fruits you can dress up as, such as apples, bananas, strawberries and grapes, and if there are couple of you going together, you could even go as a fruit bowl.
