6 Last Minute Halloween Ideas

27 Oct

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I love the whole idea of taking on a new identity for a night. It’s fun dressing up and doing some over the top makeup. I’m going to be a vampire this year. I’m surprised this is my first year doing a vampire. I’ve definitely been intrigued by the vampire myth for years. Years back I read Bram Stocker’s Dracula, I loved Interview with a Vampire and now I’m a huge True Blood fan. I think this costume was long overdue.

Before I decided on my costume this year I went through and searched online for some easy costume ideas. I couldn’t find a bunch of costumes on one site, so I figured I’d do my own list of last minute costume ideas that I found from around the web for those of you who are on the fence on deciding what you want to be.

1. Rosie the Riveter

Rosie the RiveterI love how simple this is. A Chambray shirt, bandana and lipstick – We Can Do It!

2. Cat Burglar

Cat Burglar

This is a step up just from adding animal ears and a tail.This can be done with the cute leotard or just wearing something all black.

3. Kesha

KeshaSuper easy. How hard is it to look like a hot mess? Just throw together some mismatching clothes, maybe something a little rock and roll, look like you just rolled out of bed and you are Kesha.

4. Taco Bell Hot Sauce

I thought this was really cute. All you need is a tube dress and some felt.

5. Sushi

Another cute and easy costume. A white dress, pillow with a light colored or satin pillow case and a piece of green cloth to wrap it all together.

6. Streaker

I did something very similar a few years ago wearing a trench coat, black biker shorts and tank top and put a white piece of paper over it that said censored. I really like the idea of using nude colored clothing or tights underneath and the black boxes.
