With classes, assignments, internships and so many other priorities taking up space in your planner, it can be easy to let certain things slip through the cracks. Sometimes it’s an event that can be rescheduled, such as dinner out with your friends. But other times, the thing that slips through the cracks is coming up with a killer Halloween costume idea for a party you’ve been looking forward to all year… and suddenly it’s a day or two before and you still need one. 

If you’re running behind and need an outfit within the next 24 hours, don’t panic. You still have time to pull something together that’s a little more creative than drawing cat whiskers on your face and calling it a day. (Though, we are not judging if this is the best option for you!) Here are some fun Halloween costume ideas with one-day shipping in a wide variety of genres and aesthetics. They’re sure to reach your doorstep as early as tomorrow to make sure you step out looking spooktacular!

If you need some quick DIY inspiration and are running short on time, these makeup costume ideas may save you from showing up without a costume. Additionally, these last-minute DIYs are good for if you only have an hour to prep a costume. If nothing else, definitely upcycle your Eras Tour outfit as a Taylor Swift costume. Here are some great Halloween costumes with 1-day shipping.
