6 DIY Halloween Costumes You Can Throw Together Last Minute

For my yearly DIY closet-costumes post, I decided to put my money where my mouth is and style looks with pieces I actually have in my closet! (I rounded up some of my favorites from years past in this post.) If you couldn't guess, I'm pretty into Halloween, so I have a black and a blonde wig on hand already...If you’re going for a look that is big on the hair, I’d recommend grabbing one—they’re cheap on Amazon and will really make your costume. Would you try any of these ideas?

Bonnie (Bonnie and Clyde)

A fake pistol or bag of Monopoly money completes this movie classic.

Rosie The Riveter

This one is great for an office costume or if you don’t want to be too over-the-top. All you need is red lipstick and your best muscle flex.

Mia (Pulp Fiction)

A classic white button-down and some kick-flare jeans make for an easy Mia. If you’re really committing (and it’s not a kids’ party), add a cigarette and some fake blood under one nostril.

Sandy (Grease)

Sandy might be every girl’s go-to, since we all have a pair of leather leggings, a leather jacket, and red lipstick. But it’s a favorite for a reason: comfortable, sexy, and not too out-there if you need to use public transit to get to your party. Tell me about it, stud!


I actually got this dress to be Daisy Buchanan many years back, but it has endless reuse as a flapper costume. Pile on the pearls, diamonds, feathers, and fur with a sparkly shift dress for '20s-era opulence. One of those old-time cigarette holders are only a few bucks at a costume store to round out the look.

Betty Boop

A black bob and red dress are pretty much all you need for Betty. Finish with red lipstick, gold hoops, and a garter if you’re going the sexy route.
