Last Minute Costume Ideas

Akkkk, only a day away and it’ll be Halloween. Are ya’ll ready for it? Do you have your costumes? Last minute costume ideas can be a lot of fun or a big pain in the bottom. Here’s a quick and easy list for ya’ll.

pea in pod- Dress them in a green onesie and wrap a long green towel around them. You’ve got yourself a pea in a pod.

baby in a bag- Hmm, take a brown paper bag and walk around with your wee one poking out of it.

apple- Don’t ask me, BalletGirl told me to put her brother in a red sleeper and find a green cap.

bananna- Yellow sleeper.

baby- What preteen/teen girl hasn’t dressed as a baby. Toss on a small dress, pull the hair into pigtails and suck on a pacifier/baby bottle/sucker.

farmer- Overalls and a straw hat. Don’t forget the piece of grass hanging out the mouth.

ghost- Take a white bedsheet and cut out two eye holes and arm holes. Quick and simple.

clown- Kids love this one. Mix up their clothes so they don’t match, color their hair wild colors and paint their face white with red spots on their cheeks and lipstick.

marine- Find some old cammie bottoms and top, or just toss on some green and black face paint.

bum- Take some black face paint, blot it across the face and make them look really dirty. Toussel the hair to make it look unclean or wipe oil into it and some clothes with holes in them.

monster- Anything scary, make sure to have red face paint on hand so they can make themselves look bloody.

zombie- This will take a roll or more of toilet paper and wrap em up. I think this is the cheapest outfit you can make.

No, these may not be really creative but for a last minute person these can definitely come in handy.
