We’ve all been there; last-minute Halloween party invite and you’ve got nothing to wear. Rather than put on some pj’s and call yourself sleeping in, take a little cue from these awesome and downright hilarious last-minute costume hacks.
Last Minute Costume Ideas
Web 404 Error
No costume to be found? Own it! All you need is a plain white t-shirt and a black marker to create your own “Error 404: No Costume Found” web page. Hey, you have to get some points for being clever.
Give your razor a break and call it your costume! A stubbly beard and a plaid shirt and jeans are all you need to claim to be the brawniest man in all of household cleaning. To clear up any confusion, carry a carton of Brawny as your best accessory.
Got a camera and a fanny pack? Throw in some Birkenstocks with socks and you’re automatically an annoying American tourist! Just for kicks grab a tourism pamphlet to anywhere as a great accessory.
Whether you’re the Secret Service or a bouncer at a club, you can pull off the look with a black suit and an earpiece. For extra credibility, sport some dark sunglasses and talk to yourself most of the night.
A Play on Words
Playing on a well-known phrase is a great way to keep people guessing – and laughing – all night. Tie a rubber chicken into a phone cord and strap it around yourself wearing a blue shirt: You’re “chicken cord on blue.” Or make a cheerleader/superfan costume with the words “Go Ceiling!” and you’re the best ceiling fan out there!
Breaking Bad/Risky Business
Enthusiasts of the hit TV show will instantly recognize you as Walter White if you don a green button-down shirt and a pair of tighty whities. With a similar outfit, you’ll be all set to play Tom Cruise in Risky Business too.
