20 Amazing and Simple Last Minute Halloween Costumes

Halloween is upon us. Are you ready?

I have lost track of the number of times that I kept putting off getting my Halloween costume. Oh, I still have time I will get it later. No biggie.

Fast forward me to Halloween. Oh, Crap no costume. Uggg

Well, It’s not a problem any longer for you to wait until the last minute and still have a hilarious costume. Even better a costume that you might already have the items for or don’t need to spend much on.

Really what can be better than that?

After scouring Pinterest I discovered some amazing ideas that I can guarantee I will be trying out in future years.

In no particular order here are Twenty (20) awesome and easy Halloween costumes. 

1. Tina from Bob’s Burgers

My first thought on this is if you don’t know who I’m talking about then you really need to catch up on some Bob’s Burgers. I love the show and relate to their family in so many ways I think I’m a distant relative of theirs.

Tina’s costume is so simple Blue shirt, black skirt, tall socks, chucks and a beret with glasses. I love how in this photo she went as far as having Tina's Erotic Friend Fiction journal with her. PERFECT!

2. Netflix and Chill

3. Mike Wazowski

This shirt is just perfect. Even if you don’t have the items at home (green tee, felt for the eyes and mouth and glue) it isn’t expensive to make one quickly.

4. Stick people!

I fell in love with both of these stick people options. I think that doing a combination of the two would work really well too. Seriously, what could be easier?

5. Batman!

This Batman cap is so amazing I will be making one for my son to wear. Really? So simple it is ridiculous. (I didn't post a link to this image because I couldn't find the original for this and Pinterest had this link go to furniture) The diagram is awesome and I wish I could give the credit

6. Dominoes

I giggled so much when I found this dominoes costume. Great for friends to dress up together for. Black tee and pants with felt circles taped to you and white duct tape! Win

8. Pack-man Game… Nom nom nom nom

Black Dress, Felt cutouts with either tap or temporary stitching? Adorable. You could even make it permanent and have an amazing dress. Just a suggestion from one nerd to another.

9. Little Ghost

10. Peter Pan and Shadow

I think this idea for friends or couples to do for Peter Pan. Personally, I want to be the shadow so that I can make mischief wherever I go. Well, more so than Peter at least.
