Easy, Last Minute Halloween Costume Ideas

Halloween is going to look a little different this year. With social distancing in place, we won’t have as many opportunities to walk around the neighborhood trick-or-treating. We won’t get to go to costume parties at work or with friends. BUT, that doesn’t mean you can’t still get dressed up!

For more of a greaser or Sandy Olsen look, grab your favorite black crop top and leather jacket. Leather pants would be a great addition if you have those in your closet, too! Rock your favorite red heels and you’ll be ready to rock.

1920s Flapper Girl

Sticking with the decade theme, flapper girl costumes are simple and pretty easy to put together. Some flapper girl essentials include a cigarette holder, gloves, short hair (consider getting a wig), a sparkly or feather headpiece, a feather boa, and a flowy, flashy, sparkling dress!

Be a Halloween Cat!

It’s easy, it’s classic, and it’s oh-so-cute. If you have a cat-ear headband and fake tail, then you’re halfway there! If not, then don’t fret. You can easily fashion some cute cat ears with black and pink construction paper. Cut them into triangles and attach them to a black headband.

Use eyeliner to draw on a cat nose and whiskers, or even step up your game and get a black facemask and paint a kitty nose on it.
