Last Minute Costume Ideas

Last Minute Costume Ideas

Although the candy is always a bonus, my favourite part of Halloween is dressing up. I think it might be my secret love for crafting, but I love coming up with & creating the perfect costume. I usually go for funny over scary, but I think that’s only because I hate being scared. As much as I love it though, we’ve all had to throw something together at least once. So, since Halloween is on Monday, I did a little research & came up with some of my favourite last minute costume ideas for this year:

Snapchat Filter

I really hated everything to do with this election, but this was amazing. This is a moment everyone, no matter how they’re voting, can appreciate. The best part too is that you can go it alone or make it a couple’s costume. Check out how Pop Sugar did it.

With some tinted aviators, a drumstick & a little midriff muffin top, you can bring more cowbell to the party.

This may be the most underrated show, but anyone who enjoys it will appreciate your costume. All you need is some tube socks, glasses & a long moan. Of course, a horse & butt commentary is optional, but it will take your costume to the next level.

Duh…I’m a Mouse

No matter how long ago “Mean Girls” came out, it will always be culturally relevant & hilarious. Therefore this costume will always be a winner. In addition to the mouse ears, I really like to get my Karen on & would add a crystal “K” on my chest…backwards of course.

& of course if you need to make it a couples costume…

Especially effective if you have a crowd & you are above average height. Other catchphrases include, “I want my pink shirt back” & “oh my god, Danny DeVito I love your work”.
