Last Minute Halloween Costumes


There is absolutely nothing worse than being invited out to a Halloween party as a date or with some of your friends and you have nothing up your sleeve. If you are a parent, you may have even been really busy just before Halloween and simply did not have the time to take your children out to shop for costumes or to make them anything elaborate. No matter what your situation may be, there are a bunch of great tips and ideas that you can use in order to put together a fabulous last minute Halloween costume!

When you are in a pinch and you need to throw together a costume at the very last minute, you can go as simple as cutting out eyeholes on a white sheet to getting more elaborate and putting together a scarecrow costume or even a vampire if you have the resources. The great thing about Halloween and choosing a costume is that you can really let your creative side shine. Additionally, if you have a cool discount store nearby, you should be able to wrangle up a bunch of great accessories without spending your entire paycheck in the process.

If you are a female, then you may want to take the route of a witch or even a black cat considering the fact that you may have a number of the clothing and/or accessories already in your closet. Black is the key for these costumes, and if you have black tights, boots, nail polish and more, then you are already more than halfway there. You will really only need to purchase a cat tail and ears for the cat costume and hat, broom and cape for the witch costume. Get as creative as you can with makeup and you have a fast costume that will look amazing!

One of the other great last minute ideas that you can use and transform into several different costumes would be that of a hobo or bum. If you think about it, you could even take mismatched clothing from a clown costume from last year and put it together for a hobo costume this year. Dressing up in a variety of clothing that is brightly colored, putting on makeup and spiking up your hair can also give you an instant punk rocker costume! With so many great things you can find at a discount store or within your home, you should be able to find a last minute costume for Halloween with ease.
