Last-Minute DIY Halloween Costumes That Are Sure to Impress

Pin It

With Halloween quickly approaching, I'm sure many of you will find yourself without costumes. Now as a fellow teenager myself, I understand that most, if not all of us lack three major things when it comes to costume planning: money, time, and creativity. Never fear Millennials, I have a solution; last-minute Halloween costumes that are sure to impress.

Static Cling:
This one is an all time classic. Although it looks difficult, It requires very little planning and few supplies. You just need to pin some socks and other things you might find in your laundry bin, (shirts, dryer sheets) to yourself. Extra points if you tease your hair or wear footie pajamas.

Regina George:
This Halloween, you too can be the head 'mean girl' from one of the most beloved movies of all time. All you need is a white tank top, colorful (purple) bra, and short gym shorts. You need to cut out two holes in the tank top, right over your bra cups. You should be able to clearly see your bra cups. For added effect, enlist other girls to do the same or carry around a pink scrapbook with a lip print and labeled with the words 'Burn Book' on the cover. With an outfit like this, you are well on your way to having your own "army of skanks."

Lady Bug:
This is a very cute and easy costume that can be worn by all ages. This costume requires very little preparation, and costs under a dollar to create. You just need a red outfit and black felt or paper. Cut your black material in the shape of a circle and adhere it to your outfit. If you want a more permanent stick, instead of just pinning it, use an iron on fabric and adhere it to your garments that way. You can also add to your costume by adding wings or antennae using a headband attached to pipe cleaners with a pom pom glued to the ends of them.

Bill Cosby:
Here's a chance for your Dad's old sweater from the 80s to see the light of day again. You just need a loose fitting, colorful retro sweater. Seriously, its all in the sweater.

A Lego Brick:
We all have our share of memories when it comes to Legos, (i.e. the searing pain that came with stepping on one), and while good or bad, they are still one of the most iconic toys in American history. For this costume, you need a box big enough for you to fit into, and an even number of plastic cups, preferably the color red. Paint your box any color, and then attach the cups, replicating a legos appearance. If you painted your box red, you don't even have to paint the cups. You're welcome.

80's Workout Barbie:
It's finally time to put all those cute gym clothes to work. This costume is easily made using items you can find in your closet. You need tights, tight fitting shorts, and a tank top, all in neon colors, or if you're willing to splurge, a neon leotard. The key to the outfit is neon. Remember, the closer to a highlighter, the better. If you really want to go all out, add leg warmers, a sweatband, and put your hair in a high pony and have bright make up.

Meme or Viral Video:
Memes and viral videos reign high when it comes to what's relevant in today's pop culture. This costume is one that's all your own. It can be any meme, anything. Whether its Grumpy Cat or the Ermahgerd girl, you're sure to impress with your one-of-a-kind costume. Seriously, make it your own.

Happy Halloween, I hope you all look ravishing in your one-of-a-kind Halloween costumes!
