By the time the holiday comes, most Halloween outfits are sold out, but that does not mean that you cannot create a last minute Halloween look that can rival store-bought get-ups. Halloween is all about taking on an alter ego for the next day and night, but this does not mean that you have to spend lots of money for having an awesome Halloween costume!
If you thought that you were not going out with friends to hang on Halloween, and suddenly the day is approaching and you have some plans. The only problem is that you did not buy a Halloween costume and now you have no idea what you are going to dress up as (and going to the Halloween costume store the day before the celebration is your worst nightmare). No worries! While we know that it is a little bit of a problem to prep and you still want to look your best for Halloween in order to have a night of much fun with your friends, we have a solution for you!
6 Ideas for Last Minute Halloween Costumes
Here we have our six picks for easy last minute Halloween costumes that you can create with just several supplies – and you will not need to pick up one of those “bag” Halloween costumes from your nearest party store. When Halloween almost here and you do not have your Halloween costume ready, do not panic! The listed last minute Halloween costumes can be put together in just few minutes. Most of these last minute Halloween can be created with items you already have in your home!
Last Minute Costume Idea #1 – Elsa From “Frozen”
Creating a look of Elsa from “Frozen” is a perfect choice for a last minute Halloween costume idea as long as this costume is extremely popular nowadays and easy to create! The two main components that you need to create this look are purple eye shadow and a massive braid.
To create that insane volume in your hair, apply thickening mousse on your hair and blow dry, then spray a hair spray in some places and braid your hair to the side. Add some finishing touches like tiny blue clips or snowflakes! The next step is to grab your favorite purple shimmer eye shadow and apply it from the lash line to just below the crease. Finish your makeup with some black liquid liner and black mascara, and you are all set!
Last Minute Costume Idea #2 – Maleficent
Creating a look of Angelina Jolie from “The Maleficent” is both beautiful and scary, which makes this outfit the perfect last minute Halloween costume. Apply your red lipstick, a contouring cream to create those hallowed out cheekbones of this character, and some super light face powder. If you do not have time to create the headpiece, but need the similar effect, then part your hair in the center and twist it into Victory rolls.
Last Minute Costume Idea #3 – Despicable Me Minions
If you are a fan of the sequel “Despicable Me,” you probably also like the little yellow Minions. This last minute Halloween costume idea takes a few more pieces, but is worth it. To create such an amazing Halloween look in few minutes, you will need blue overalls, yellow shirts, and face paints as well.
Get bingpong balls, then cut them in two pieces and glue each piece inside two plastic cups. To resemble eyes, draw small holes on the center of the balls. Attach the bottom of each plastic cup to a strap of dark fabric or a headband, so you could put your funny “eyes” around your forehead!
Last Minute Costume Idea #4 – OITNB
The hit show OITNB is a fabulous Halloween costume idea to wear as a group, and is easy to create and comfortable to wear. If you and your friends are going to team up for Halloween, then form the key members of the OITNB – Pensatucky, Piper, Alex, and Crazy Eyes. If you have no chance to create their hair-types, you can always use wigs to really work out the part. For Pensatucky, use some fake teeth, since that is so much of her character. To complete you Halloween look, get orange or tan scrubs depending on which is worn by each person, and do not use much makeup as long as you are in prison!
Last Minute Costume Idea #5 – Daenerys Targaryen from “Game of Thrones”
If you are obsessed with “Game of Thrones”, then it makes sense to use the characters as inspiration for your last minute Halloween costumes! If you are a blonde, go for Daenerys, creating bold brows and a half-up braided hairstyle.
Make braids on either side of your head and braid towards the back, and then combine the plaits at the center of the back of your head. As for the loose hair, apply a wide barrel curling iron to achieve those romantic curls. To create a bold, darker look, use a brow pencil. If you are a brunet, then go as Sansa instead, but with the same style!
Last Minute Costume Idea #6 – Wednesday Addams
This old favorite is always reliable when you put on a Halloween costume crunch. To be Wednesday Addams, you need a black collared shirt with a white collar and long black hair that you can braid. If long hair is a problem for you, pick up a wig at a Halloween costume store. Keep your makeup fair and your lips nude, and you are ready to go!
In an effort to help out everybody who needs a Halloween costume at the last minute, we have created a list of last minute Halloween costumes that only require red lipstick, eyeliner, colored hairspray, a flannel shirt, a a pair of jeans. Most women have at least red lipstick and eyeliner in their beauty bag and colored hairspray probably will not be sold out. Hopefully, with our last minute Halloween costumes, you will create a look that you love with little time left until Halloween!
