For procrastinators, Halloween sneaks up behind us like Norman Bates in Psycho, but have no fear! We have 5 quick and easy, last-minute costume ideas for those of you who forgot that Halloween is coming up this Monday.
1. A Domino
What you need: A black shirt and pants or a black dress, white felt, scissors, a hot glue gun, or tape.
How to make it: Cut out as many circles of white felt as you would like and arrange them on your black outfit in the design of a domino. Cut out a white strip that will serve as the line dividing the domino or even better find a white belt to wear. Tape or glue the felt onto your outfit and you’re all set!
2. A Twister Board
What you need: A white shirt and pants or a white dress, red, green, yellow, and blue felt, scissors, and glue or tape.
How to make it: Cut out circles of colored felt and tape or hot glue them to your white outfit in the shape of a Twister board. If you have the time to run to the halloween store, pick up a hat with a spinner on top to finish off the costume.
3. Risky Business
What you need: An oversized button-up shirt, boxer shorts, high white socks, and sunglasses.
How to make it: Throw on the outfit then slide across hardwood floors and dance around like Tom Cruise.
4. A Smurf
What you need: White shorts/pants, a blue t-shirt, a white hat, blue tights, blue long-sleeved shirt or blue body paint.
How to make it: Put on your blue tights on underneath your white pants and put on your blue shirt. For dedciated trick-o-treaters, forget the shirt and paint your body and face blue.
What you need: Green or purple balloons, a green hat, and tape.
How to make it: Blow up several balloons and tape a bunch onto your outfit. Plop on your green hat as the leaves but be careful if you decide to sit down, your costume might pop!
