Top 5 Last Minute Halloween Costumes that are sure to be a Hit!
Halloween is quickly approaching and with Halloween comes costume parties. Since Halloween falls on a Monday this year, this weekend is going to be the time for parties. Unless you absolutely love Halloween, most don’t buy costumes unless they are invited to a party. And if you’re like me, you’re not going to think about the costume you are going to wear to that party until last minute.
Today I’ve rounded up the top 5 last minute Halloween costumes that are sure to be a hit! Most of these items you probably already have, but if not a quick run to the store will complete your costume.
We all have the sweatsuit jumper in our closet that could stand to be made into a Halloween costume. If you don’t though, Walmart has an abundance of them.
Here’s what you’ll need for this great and creative costume is:
- sweatsuit jumper
- clown nose
- white card stock
- red fabric
- fabric glue
- needle & thread
There are two ways of going about this costume. 1) Wear a red shirt and leggings under your sweatsuit if you don’t know or have time to sew. 2) Buy red fabric and sew the pieces to cover the holes you cut for your operation pieces. Besides deciding on what option you are going to do for this costume, everything else is pretty self explanatory by looking at the picture. You’re sure to be a hit and more than likely the only live operation board at your party!
BAG OF JELLY BEANS
If you have a dry cleaners bag (or any type of plastic bag), water balloons (filled with air) and a computer and printer then you can become a bag of jelly beans rather fast. This is a genius and very easy solution to a one of a kind costume.
Be careful around sharp objects though, you could quickly become a half eaten bag of jelly beans!!
What an awesome idea for an easy last minute costume! With this costume comes a bonus – you don’t have to talk to people you don’t want to because you’re a Mime!
Most women have the stuff in their closet to make this costume. All it requires is a little face paint, a black and white striped shirt, black trousers, suspenders and white gloves.
If you want to see her make up close up and the full tutorial you can find that here.
This is a halloween costume that is quick, easy and cheap for the guys(or the ladies). A black shirt (or you can use a black and white striped shirt), black pants, black toboggan and a money sack is all you need. To make the money sack you could use a pillow case, some stuffing and a sharpie or electrical tape.
If you go along with this picture and are attending a party where there’s people you don’t know and alcohol, printing some fake money for your bag and pocket is a good idea.
STRUCK BY LIGHTNING
If you have convinced your boyfriend, husband or guy friend to dress up with you (and let’s be real, it usually takes a lot of convincing) then this is a wonderful and creative last minute option. A cheap umbrella, a white blouse, nude undershirt, black makeup and a lightning strike will make this couples costume complete.
To make the lightning bolt use cardboard, yellow fabric and a stapler.
