4 Totally Awesome Last-Minute Halloween Costume Ideas
1. Sleepover Kid
All you need to complete this look is a pair of footie pajamas, a stuffed animal and maybe a pair of fuzzy slippers too! For the ladies, wear minimal makeup and put your hair in pigtails to really get that sleepover style down pat.
For this costume idea, you’ll need to grab a pair of worn-in jeans, a flannel, an old floppy hat and a pair of boots. Paint your face with some inexpensive Halloween face paint, fluff your hair out to maximum frizz levels and head out with a handful of fake sunflowers or a little crow on your shoulder.
3. Risky Business
Throw it back to one of Tom Cruise’s classic film roles with the simple and effective Risky Business costume. For this look, you’ll need an oversized white button-down shirt, a pair of Ray Ban-like sunglasses and your comfiest pair of black sports socks. Then, get ready to glide across the floor as you hop from celebration to celebration.
4. Static Cling
Keep your friends guessing this Halloween with this simple and fun costume idea. Simply grab one of your comfiest t-shirts and a pair of jeans, then attach a few socks, wash rags or other small items to your shirt with a needle and thread. Place them strategically so they look like you just pulled your shirt out of the clothes dryer and you’re done!
