Last Minute Costumes

13 Days of Halloween: Day Seven


There’s officially a week till Halloween which means a week to find your costume. Luckily for you here are a couple of different inexpensive costumes that can be made from a couple of things from your closet or just buying a few small things.

Here’s a few of ideas for girls:

  1. You can be almost any animal with just a t-shirt, animal ears, and maybe a tail. Or if you want to be a little more unique, be a beanie baby. You can easily make the Ty tag with some construction paper, paint, and some string to tie it like a necklace around your neck.
  2. If you have a plaid shirt, some denim jeans or short and some suspenders, you can be a lumberjack.
  3. As long as you have black clothes, a band tee and some faceprint you can be any member of Kiss.
  4. A tacky floral shirt, lei, khaki shorts and a fanny pack, and now you’re a tourist.
  5. A pink t-shirt, preferably oversized, with purple leggings or tights and some converse and you’re Boo from Monsters Inc. just make sure your hair is in pigtails and you’re all set.

Now here are a few simple ideas for boys:

  1. A green striped sweater paired with khaki pants and you’re Steve from Blue’s Clues.
  2. Sticking with the khaki pants swap out the sweater for a red shirt with a lightning bolt and now you look like Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory.
  3. A yellow polo with a single zigzag stripe drawn across it with some black jeans or shorts and you’re Charlie Brown.
  4. Or if you don’t want to be a specific character, just throw on a cowboy hat, boots, a plaid shirt and jeans and you’re a cowboy.
  5. A reflective vest paired with a hardhat, jeans and a plain tee and now you’re a construction worker.

All of these are super simple and we hope you found one you liked, or you are a little more inspired. Happy Halloween!
