Easiest Last-Minute DIY Halloween Costumes

If you've been following this blog for a while, you know how obsessed I am with Halloween. You get to dress up, eat candy and have fun—no commitments required. And no commitments means you shouldn't have to drop a ton of money on a costume for one night. So, I give you my sixth-annual DIY Halloween Costume post. These five last-minute ideas can be crafted from pieces you already have in your closet and are bound to impress everyone at the party. Happy Halloweekend!

Happy Death Day

Happy Death Day Costume

This modern-day take on Groundhog Day is super relevant this year and incredibly easy to recreate. Just put on your clubbing clothes, add some smudgy mascara and grab a cupcake—birthday candle included! The best part? At the end of the night, you can eat the cupcake...

Thong Jeans

Thong Jeans Costume

This hilarious Japanese fashion faux pas makes a ridiculously easy costume. If you don't have a pair of jeans you're willing to sacrifice, grab a pair cheap at your local Salvation Army and get cutting, eliminating everything but the seams. Wear over a bodysuit with running shoes.

Georgie from IT

Sean actually talked me into seeing IT and, yes, it's that scary. Spook your friends with an easy Georgie costume by throwing on your wellies with a yellow raincoat. If the jacket is something you're willing to sacrifice, some fake blood and a jagged end (tuck in your arm) amps up the fear factor. Don't forget your red balloon!

Beyonce Baby Announcement

Beyonce Costume

Beyonce broke the internet with her twin pregnancy announcement, and daring fashionistas can easily recreate it. Pop a pillow under a nude-colored tank and top with a lacy bra, short shorts and gauzy scarf on your head. Or, go as the birth announcement with the same look and twin baby dolls. Even better—you and your bestie can go as both!

Fake News

Okay, you probably don't have a newspaper hoodie in your closet, but you can still recreate this look by pinning newspaper to a dress you already have. And if you don't want to order the hat, cut out big red letters that say FAKE and glue to the front of your DIY newspaper dress. If you're really getting into character, loudly interrupt your friends all night by yelling, "Fake!"
