5 Last-Minute Halloween Costume Ideas

If you’re reading this article, you probably don’t have a costume for Halloween in a few days.  Don’t fret, you can put together these easy costumes in a day or less. 


Witch hats are easy to find anywhere (Party City, Target, Walmart) and usually cost less than a few bucks.  You can go as simple or intricate as you want with this costume idea, and still look spooky for Halloween.

Gypsy / Fortune Teller

This is one of those costumes that’s easy to put together and super underrated.  The accessories are usually easy to find in Halloween stores, and you can even wear loads of jewelry you already own to add onto the look.  Have a skirt? Long or short, you’re ready to go.  


Going as a bunny is the new cat: bunny ears are cute, and you can wear a simple black, white, or pink outfit to match.  

Britney Spears

Iconic.  You can wear a bald cap and go as the 2007 version of Britney, or maybe the schoolgirl vibe from her Hit Me Baby One More Time music video.

Wednesday Addams

This costume is great for girls with dark hair.  All you need is a white button down, black shirt and skirt, or dress, and some dark makeup.  Boom.
