Last-Minute Halloween Costume Ideas
Halloween is almost here! It isn’t just ‘almost here’, it’s right around the corner. And your Halloween costume isn’t ready yet. Whether you have a last-minute party to go to, your child decided that they want to wear something different or someone spilled grape juice all over their outfit, sometimes you need a last-minute idea. If you’ve run out of time and can’t order your costume pick online (and the Halloween store at the mall is already closed), check out these easy night-before or day-off options.
Raid your first-aid kit and create an easy Halloween costume in minutes. If you don’t have rolls of gauze just hanging around, head out to the drugstore and buy a package or two. Wear white sweats and a white t-shirt, then wrap yourself in the gauze. Looking for another option? Cut an old white bedsheet into strips instead.
Dress-up in colorful, patterned, mismatched clothes and create a custom clown costume. Turn your regular cosmetics into clown make-up by drawing red circle cheeks on with a bold lipstick. Draw ‘bubbles’ around your eyes with a dark eyeliner, and fill the area in with a blue, purple or green eye shadow. If you have long hair, create uneven ‘crazy’ ponytails. If you don’t have the hair for the look, try a silly hat.
This one is super-simple. Wear a dark suit, a tie and sun glasses. That’s it. Now you’re ready for a night of Halloween fun!
