6 Last-Minute Halloween Costumes

Halloween is only a few days away, and now that you’re in college, Halloween is not just one day but a whole weekend! Obviously, this means you need more than one costume. If you’re anything like me, you probably have no idea what you’re dressing up as, and you won’t decide until about an hour before you have to be ready. So from one costume procrastinator to another, here are 6 easy costumes that you can pull together at the last minute!



All you need for this costume is a large white t-shirt and a black sharpie! Then just put your hair up in pigtails and draw on a cute little black nose with some eyeliner, and you’re good to go. It does not get easier than this! 



Grab some round sunglasses from a dollar store near you! Then all you need is a bandana or flower crown and a tie-dye t-shirt, and you’re looking ~groovy~ baby. 


3.Biker Chick:

You can probably find everything you need for this costume already lying around in your closet! All you need is a leather jacket, a red bandana, and some sunglasses.



This easy costume is great for groups. Pick your favorite fruit and grab a matching colored oversized t-shirt take your trusty sharpie or some construction paper and add on some details, for example, draw some zig-zag lines on a yellow t-shirt to magically transform into a pineapple or cut out some seeds and paste them on a red t-shirt to bippity-boppity-boo yourself into a strawberry!


5.Frat guys:

Grab your sunglasses and a backward baseball cap to channel your inner Brad and Chad. Pair that with a button-down and some khaki shorts, and you’re good to go! 


6.Rosie the Riveter:

If Beyonce can do it, so can you! All you need for this costume is a denim shirt, a red bandana, and some construction paper. Roll up your sleeves, put that bandana in your hair, and make your own “We Can Do It” sign. That’s it, you did it! 



Hopefully, this list has given you at least a few great costume ideas you whip up alone or with friends. Remember to eat lots of candy and stay safe this Halloweekend!
