If you’re like me, then Halloween is one of those things you always want to dress up for, and you have a good costume idea around July, but somewhere October 1st, you think it’s still forever away, and then all of the sudden it’s the Thursday before and you have no costume and few ideas. Well, never fear! I’m here with some easy last minute ideas to throw together before any Halloween bashes this weekend.
With the Gilmore Girls revival coming up, this costume is relevant, and many people will probably know what you are! I’d suggest checking out your local thrift stores if you don’t already have some of the items in your closet. Otherwise, it’s easy to use similar items that you already own! Also, to top it off, I suggest getting to go coffee cups and pasting the label from the pop up Luke’s Diners on it. That’ll definitely give you away if the sharp contrast between cowgirl and prep school girl doesn’t! This is great for a friends duo costume.
Need a really last minute alternative? Black skinnies, a black tee or blouse, and pumps will give you an undead vibe, then add some red lipstick and fake blood drips down you chin, and you’re all vamped out. Need inspiration? Watch an episode of Vampire Diaries!
If you love a classic icon, then Audrey Hepburn is the look for you! Have a little black dress in your closet? Pair with pearls, pumps, some costume accessories, and you’re good to go. Also, to top it off I would add long black gloves you can. You can also make a fake cigarette holder with black paper if you don’t have one and don’t want to buy one!
If you want to bend gender a bit, Luke Danes is a super easy look to pull off with stuff already in your closet. If you don’t have a flannel, I’m sure you could borrow one from a friend! And this look is incomplete without a backwards baseball cap!
Want to go comfy but still dresses up? Do your hair and makeup, but wear PJs and a sleep mask, and BOOM, you’re a Victoria’s Secret model.
Have a fancy dress that has a vintage vibe? Add a jeweled piece to your hair, and vintage or normal heels and you have a full flapper look reminiscent of the Great Gatsby.
Again, a super easy look to pull off if you’re really crunched for time. Red accessories are all you need to complete this look. Also, if you have thick black-frammed glasses that’s even better, but they aren’t necessary!
What’s you costume this year?
