Five Last Minute Halloween Costumes You Already Own

At the begin of October I always start to think about an elaborate Halloween costume for the year. By mid October, I have usually forgotten all about it. The day before Halloween I am frantically trying to throw together anything in my wardrobe to make a costume. If this sounds like you, here are five costumes ideas that are likely already hanging in your closet.

1. Where’s Waldo WaldoAll you need to make this costume work is a red and white striped shirt and hat, a pair of jeans, and glasses. The cane and messenger bag are optional – if you’re friends can’t figure it out without those two items, they need a lesson is 1980s children’s literature.

2. Robber RobberBlack pants, black hat, black and white striped shirt, dark sunglasses and black shoes. The more black the better! If you can find a bag to carry around for your bounty – even better!

3. Rosie The Riveter Rosie The RiveterYou go girl! Pair a denim blouse with denim short and add a bandanna, red lips and an obscene amount of bicep flexing and consider this Halloween a girls night out!

4. Black Cat Cat CostumeBlack on black on black. Add some ears and a few whiskers [drawn on with eyeliner] and give your superstitious friends a run for their money.

5. Tom Cruise in Risky Business Risky BusinessThis is probably one of the most overdone costumes, but it is a no brainer. Grab your boyfriends white dress shirt, a pair of spandex shorts, socks, sunglasses and a candle sick and be prepared to dance the night away!

With only two weeks until Halloween, start pursuing your closet so your costume is the least stressful part of your night!
