3 Easy Last-Minute Halloween Costumes

Two more days until we whip out our costumes and impersonate our favorite TV character, superhero, movie star, Disney character; the list goes on and on. While some of us might plan our costume a month ahead of time, we can’t all be that prepared. Have no fear because there are a ton of great last-minute Halloween costume ideas that are easy and convenient, and won’t require you to buy anything new.

Nerd

If you’re the cool one in your group of friends, perhaps it’s time to bring out your nerdy side! Dressing up as a nerd is as easy as wearing a pair of black-rimmed glasses and a geeky button-down shirt with a preppy sweater. Or, you can throw on a white t-shirt and a pair of suspenders.

Audrey Hepburn

If you don’t want to head down the geek route, perhaps you’re ready to bring out your classy side instead. Why not dress up as Audrey Hepburn’s character in Breakfast at Tiffany’s? All you need is a little black dress, a pearl necklace, a pair of black high heels, a pair of chunky stud earrings, a headband (or tiara), and a cigarette holder.

Athlete

Sometimes the best Halloween costumes are the ones you can create from the items in your closet. Maybe it’s time to dust off your old sports uniform and dress up as an athlete in the sport of your choice!

Halloween Costumes that will Make you Nostalgic for your Childhood

Smell that? The wonderful smell of sugar and spice, pumpkin chai, cinnamon vanilla latte (or something like that) is usually the first thing we encounter when we walk through the doors of our favorite coffee shop in October. It’s the smell that reminds us that Halloween is right around the corner. It’s time to carve out our pumpkins, buy those yummy little chocolates we see piled high in the grocery stores, and think up a fabulous costume idea.

First we have to decide on a general theme. Do we want to be scary? Sexy? Funny? Weird? Creative? The choices are endless! Why not try a costume that brings us back to our younger years? An article on Popsugar gives us some great ideas for costumes that will make us nostalgic for our childhood.

First on the list is Mrs. Doubtfire. Put on a white blouse with burnt stains, carry a couple cooking lids, and all the millennials at the party will know exactly who you are!

With only a couple of weeks until Halloween, it’s time to start thinking about your costume. If none of these ideas appealed to you can always fall back on the classics such as, a sexy nurse, a black cat, a construction worker, or a referee!
