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.

 
Sound familiar?
 
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.
