Halloween is on Friday this year which means more of us will have the chance to get out and enjoy the holiday this year. This is my favorite holiday and I usually start planning my costume before the current holiday is even over but this year I am slacking. If you’re like me and in need of some last minute costume ideas hopefully one of these will help you.
Kids are easy because they’ve already got the cute factor so nobody is going to judge a kid by how good or bad their costume is. If you have a kid that is of school age or just want some cute pictures to have the memories then here are some ideas for the little munchkins that won’t break the bank and will leave a lasting impression on all who see them.
Carl Fredricksen from the movie “Up”
All that is needed for this are a few balloons, some PCV pipe, 2 tennis balls, and some thick framed glasses. I’m sure that by now your cutie has the rest of the outfit or close to it somewhere in his collection.
Chances are if you have a little girl between the ages of 2-6 she has at least one ballerina outfit or tutu of some sort. Add some stockings and a matching top and you got your kid covered now comes the fun part. All you need is to find a transparent (can be colored as long as you can see through it) umbrella, some streamers, tape, and either 2 big fist sized googley-eyes or if you can’t find them at your local craft store then draw some on construction paper and tape them to the umbrella.
For Teens and Young Adults:
Often times we see this age group dress a bit too risqué for their age group simply because they feel there aren’t a lot of options maybe for them or maybe they just like to, who knows. But that’s what I’m here for, to give them ideas for clever alternatives for this year on costumes they can put together last minute and still look great and probably turn even more heads and get the right kind of attention.
Sexy Sheet Ghost.
Taking the whole “sexy” thing to a new level – a hilarious and clever one! I promise that anyone who wears this will surely win whatever contest they enter or be the hit of whatever party they go to! Just get a plain white sheet cut some eye holes and two tiny holes for your nose so you can breathe and get some of your best undergarments and put them on over top. This would be extremely funny for either gender.
The internet sensation will surely get you some laughs and leave a lasting impression for the low price of some face paint. The rest of the costume you probably already have. You will need a tan or brown colored top and white gloves if you have them but they are optional, some brown, black, and white face paint and put on your best frown.
Wear a black or white undershirt then take the opposite color shirt to wear on top and cut out a pattern of a skeleton. Wear with black pants or black leggings with skeleton legs on them and black shoes or sneakers. Paint your face with black and white face paint how you wish.
For Everyone Else:
Here are some clever last minute ideas for the rest of us that need something quick, simple, but yet clever to throw together at the last minute.
Bob Ross and his Masterpiece.
This is a great couples costume. You basically just need a wig for one of you to be Bob Ross and get a piece of cardboard and cut it into the shape of a paint pallet and put some colors on it and carry a paintbrush. For the other half playing the painting you can just wear plain colored clothing and deck yourself out in leaves and flowers.
This is a funny costume idea especially for those who always seem to get lost or are always late and get asked “where are you?” You can get an old t-shirt and some yellow duct tape and mark off some street names and landmarks and you can use either red felt or red construction paper for the head piece.
