10 Last-Minute Halloween Costumes That Don’t Totally Suck
Easy Halloween costumes don't have to be boring.
Every year on November 1, I vow to spend the next 364 days planning a fire Halloween costume that'll make even the queen of costumes, Heidi Klum, jealous. Of course, that never actually happens. Instead, I end up putting together a last-minute look that usually consists of my favorite jeans, a black T-shirt, and either a cheap wig or some wild makeup idea I copied from a mediocre beauty blogger on YouTube.
Like clockwork, I have a feeling that this year my procrastination gene will probably get the best of me. Thankfully, us wait-until-the-last-minute folks live in a world where we can enjoy the benefits of an Amazon Prime membership. With free two-day shipping (and sometimes same-day delivery) on several items, there's no need to overthink something as simple as a Halloween costume. Here, 10 options for the procrastinators in the crowd.
'90s Jennifer Lopez Costume
Jenny from the block's iconic look is perfect for procrastinators like me. Grab white jeans, a tank top, and a bandana, and you're good to go. Bonus points if you include a little bling bling.
The Mask Costume
The power suit has been trending for a few years now, and it's not going anywhere any time soon. Go ahead and get into the monochromatic trend with a yellow suit. Grab a green mask (or face paint, if you're adventurous) and a hat to channel Jim Carrey's hilarious movie character.
Robin Stranger Things Costume
Again, this doesn't have to be hard. Buy one of those head-to-toe costumes and call it a night.
Shop It: Robin Scoops Ahoy Costume, $50; amazon.com.
Grab a pink swimsuit, bodysuit, leotard ... whatever ... and you're halfway to recreating this Barbie costume (as demonstrated by Hailey Baldwin). Go the extra mile and layer it with an off-the-shoulder top, fishnets, headband, and thick white socks.
Fleabag's wearable outfits make this costume easy to recreate with items that are already in your closet. If you don't already have a black jumpsuit, you can grab this one from Amazon. Oh, and don't forget the signature red lipstick.
Shop It: Bebe Keyhole Jumpsuit, $23; amazon.com.
Poop Emoji Costume
Shop It: DSplay Emoticon Costume, $25; amazon.com.
Renata Klein Big Little Lies Costume
I came across these Renata Klein (not to be confused with a Calvin Klein) shirts that are just too good not to mention. But what's even better for Halloween night? That flashy red look Renata wore for her never-to-be-published magazine photo shoot.
InStyle Cover Jennifer Lopez Costume
I know what you're thinking: There's already a Jennifer Lopez costume on this list. But J.Lo is queen. And her InStyle cover was waaaay to good not to include. All you need to recreate the look is a shiny green dress. If you're feeling wild, grab a pair of scissors and hike that slit up.
Shop It: Halter Sequin Dress $80; amazon.com.
Sandy Greece Costume
Whip out those black leggings and cut up a black tee to get this easy, classic look. In need of blonde curls? Amazon has a wig that'll be delivered to your house before you know it.
Hannah B The Bachelorette Costume
I know you already have a fancy dress that's just sitting in the back of your closet. Put that old thing to use and grab a long-stem rose to give it those Bachelorette vibes.
Dionne Clueless Costume
We can never get enough of Cher and Dionne's plaid skirts from the movie Clueless. You don't have to go all out like Lupita, above, to nail this one. All you need is a blazer, a skirt, and knee-high socks.
Shop It: Party City Dionne Costume, $40; amazon.com.
