For all those lazy students out there, Halloween can be stressful! Having to designate a chunk of time to think of—and create—a costume is just too much sometimes, especially on top of homework, virtual extracurriculars, your part-time job and your social life. So, what do you do if you need a quick costume? Look no further. Read below for 11 costumes that are easy to execute and require little-to-no spending.
1. A ’50s housewife
Rock your mom’s pearls and a kitchen apron, and call it a day!
Don your go-to pair of black pants, some black boots, a black-and-white striped shirt, a black beanie, and some dark makeup.
3. A ghost
Literally, wear a big white tee as a dress, draw on (or cut out) some eyes and a mouth, and get spooking. PSA: Swap out the white shirt for an orange shirt and you become a pumpkin!
4. Regina George
All you really need is a cheap white tank and a colorful bra.
5. A zombie
Cut up a white tee and trash it with some fake blood.
6. Three Blind Mice
Get yourself some sunglasses and mouse ears—and DONE!
7. Retro fitness girl
Rock your favorite pair of colorful leggings with some leg warmers and sneakers! Hair scrunchy = necessary.
This one’s all about your favorite flannel and some creative makeup.
9. Meredith Grey
Honestly, all you need is a pair of scrubs—oh, and a stethoscope if you’re feeling bold.
10. Risky Business
Oversized collared shirts and messy hair. How much simpler can it get?
