Fun Last-Minute Halloween Ideas


When you haven’t prepared anything for a Halloween festivity, last-minute ideas can be stressful. For a simple (and quick) go- to costume just wear all black and create any spooky or fun face using Halloween make-up kits. There are plenty of great Halloween make-up tutorials on YouTube. Below are a few different costume ideas for easy, last-minute options, as you may already have some things in your closet to use. Personally, I have small kids, so I do not scar them for life by picking The Walking Dead-looking stuff or creepy things. Happy Halloween!

*Pick one of your favorite movie characters, perhaps a psycho one such as “The Cable Guy,” and practice the mannerisms or anything that you can pull off with complimenting clothing.
