The weekend is almost here, and that means it’s almost time for Halloween parties, costume celebrations, and monster bashes! While many of the girls here at LuLu*s have been carefully planning their costumes over the past few weeks, there are others of us . . . *cough* . . . who put planning to the last minute and then end up frantically digging through our closets in hope of some miraculously awesome costume.
Well, despair no longer. I am here to offer you some quick, last minute Halloween costumes that are easy to put together and might even get a few laughs:
Shot in the Dark: Dress all in black and tie a shot glass around your neck.
Black Mail: Wear all black and put a postage stamp (a big photocopied one or a few real ones) on your chest.
Seven Seas: Draw the letter C seven times all over your face and arms (use safe ink!).
Quarter Pounder: Carry a quarter and a hammer.
Deviled Egg: Wear all white and attach or paint a yellow circle to your stomach. Add horns and a grab a pitchfork.
Refrigerator Magnet: Paint a shoebox black and attach it to your back.
Runaway Bride: White dress and sneakers. A veil is a nice touch, too.
Joan Crawford: Smear lipstick outside your natural lipline and add a bow and some bling.
Bucaneer: Attach a dollar to each ear: Buck-an-ear.
Aircraft Carrier: Carry a toy airplane.
Quarterback: Tape a quarter or an enlarged copy of one to your back.
Facebook Page: Use a piece of cardboard to create a profile page. Cut a hole out where your face should go and then fill out all of the relevant information with a set of colorful sharpies. Make sure to include your interests, phone number, favorite drink, etc. just in case anyone is curious.
Clue Cast: Have each of your friends dress in a single color and go as Miss. Scarlet, Cornell Mustard, Professor Plum, and the rest of the gang.
Bat: Cut up a cheap black umbrella from the dollar store and attach to a black hoodie. Insta-bat.
