Is Halloween in the very near future and you don’t have a costume? Did you buy a costume and you don’t like it anymore all of a sudden? Is the costume you want way too expensive? If so, this article is for you. Halloween is supposed to be fun, not stressful! Here are some of my top 5 last-minute Halloween costumes:


1. Rosie the Riveter



You can do it! It’s a quick and easy costume to put together using things straight out of your closet.


Here’s what you’ll need:

  • A cute, red bandana (preferably polka-dotted)

  • Blue jeans

  • Flats or combat boots

2. Nerd



This costume is extremely a-dorkable and so much fun to put together.


Here’s what you’ll need:

3. Superhero


I believe that there’s a hero in all of us; prove it with your last-minute costume! This costume is really fast and simple.

4. Cat
