There are tons of costume ideas that can be put together with items you already have at home. This is perfect and convenient since you don’t have to go out and spend money.

Lets use what you already have and get creative! Whether you have everything, or are inspired to do a little DIY, these quick Halloween costumes are sure to be a hit.

Here are some quick & fun costumes to throw together at the last minute:

Wednesday Adams

Let’s be real, I’m sure most of us have tons of black in our closets. For this costume, all you need is a black long sleeve dress, with a white collared shirt underneath. If you can, try to make your face pale with makeup, and put your hair in braided pigtails. For pretty much no effort, you will have a fabulous costume, and I can guarantee everyone will know who you are (well maybe not the kids!). It would be even extra cute if you got your family (or friends) involved and dressed up as the whole Adam’s Family.

Sandy Grease

Such a fun, old movie should be celebrated as often as possible, and can be done quite easily. To dress up as Sandy from Grease, throw on black leather leggings, a tight black shirt, some red lipstick and a pair of red high heels. If you have blonde hair, that’s even better, but either way, make sure to curl those locks. Maybe you can even convince your guy to dress up as Danny with you for the cutest couples costume around.

Rosie the Riveter

There’s no better time to celebrate strong women than right now. Dress up as Rosie the Riveter and show off your powerful side. Everything you need could most likely be found in your closet. A pair of jeans, a denim shirt, and a red bandana or anything red tied around your head is all you require. Let’s celebrate women this Halloween while looking cute and making a statement!

Party Animal

This cute costume is a play on words, and is very literal. Simply dress up as any animal, add a party hat, and grab one of those party horns or party blowers. You are sure to have at home either an all black outfit to dress as a cat, or maybe all beige to be a lion or a deer. You might just have to purchase some ears and a tail at the dollar store or party store to complete your look.

Where’s Waldo

If you have a red and white striped shirt, this is the most important part of the costume. Pair it with some blue pants or blue jeans, as well as black-rimmed glasses. It would be even better if you could find a white and red toque to pull the look together. You will most definitely get recognized with this effortless costume, and will be easy to spot.

Make it with Makeup

With the hype of Instagram & Youtube, it’s easy to find tutorials on how to achieve a Halloween costume with makeup. With kids, I’m sure you have a face paint kit around somewhere. Otherwise, even a basic makeup kit has enough product in it to transform your look for quick Halloween costumes! Staples like red lipstick and black eyeliner can help create several different options..

You still have time to throw together a cute costume for this Halloween. Using what you have, creating some items with a DIY project and getting creative can make for the best costume, while spending little to no money. These ideas above are here to help and take the stress out of costume planning.
