Perfect Last Minute Halloween Costumes
With Halloween a week away the stress of figuring out what to dress up as is on everyone’s minds. If you are looking to find something quick and cheap here are some great costumes we rounded up that would look amazing on anyone!
By Bailey Whelton
All of you need for this costume is some red lipstick, black eyeliner and eyeshadow, a black dress, and a black feather boa.You can use makeup you might already own.Check out your local thrift store for a plain black dress and Party City sells boas for about $10. If you hot glue the boa to the dress neckline it will be perfect! Maybe even pluck some feathers from the boa to add to your hair for some more accents.
With fall weather slowly coming in who hasn’t bought some flannels to wear? Just throw it on with a pair of your favorite jeans or overalls and you already have your look! If you want to add a little bit more, try adding a floppy hat or some hay to stick out of your pockets. Don’t forget to draw the stitching around your mouth and on your nose for the extra little details!
This costume will probably be the most fun to make. Grab your umbrella, some printer paper, and some scissors and start making a list of your favorite celebrity hotties! Print out their faces, cut them out and tie them to string (or fishing line) to hang from your umbrella. Throw on a raincoat, some rain boots, and a fun dress and your look is complete!
Damian from Mean Girls
This movie is a classic and everyone will be able to guess who you are without you having to say the classic “She doesn’t even go here!” line. Grab a hoodie, preferably blue, but it doesn’t matter, some large sunglasses to cover your face and you are done!
Throw on some jeans, a white plain tee, and a pair of white high tops, and if you have it a black leather jacket! If you don’t have a jacket swing by your thrift store because they will have plenty! If you want to go even further, buy some hair gel and a comb and to give yourself that perfect Danny Zuko hair.
Steve from Stranger Things
We all know this Netflix show is a hit and we are all anxiously waiting for season 3 to come out soon, so anyone will be able to guess this character from the show without a doubt! Grab some jeans, a long-sleeve tee, and of course a baseball bat and you are good to go! For the extra mile maybe add some makeup around one eye, so that it looks like you have a black eye. If you are good with hair, you can also try gelling it up the way Steve does.
You don’t have to spend a ton of money to have the perfect Halloween costume! Make it fun, maybe even get some of your friends to be another character too!
