Last Minute Costumes for Trick-or-Treat Time!

It’s that spooky time of the year! It’s the night when ghosts and witches come out to play with princesses and cowboys. The night of jack-o-lanterns and fake spiders, and lots and lots of candy. While not really an Indian tradition, millennials the country over are lapping it right up, because what’s not to love about dressing up and partying it up with friends (and do we really want to fight such an easy excuse to do so?)

But, we’ll be honest, sometimes the day just sneaks up on us, and before you know it, bam! It’s the end of the work or school day, and you don’t have a costume ready. Oh, what to do? Well, don’t worry, we’ve got you convered. Here are some easy ideas for a last minute Halloween party!

 

Skeleton

One white t-shirt, and one black one. Oh, and a pair of scissors and the willingness to use them. But hey, last minute scrambles for a costume will send you down that path. Holy (Hole-y) costume!

Chip on Shoulder

If you’re the funny (or pun-ny) type, then this will be right up your alley. And bonus points because it literally just requires any t-shirt, a pack of chips, and some tape. Seriously, that’s it. And you’re guaranteed to get major eye rolls every time you tell people what your costume is. What fun!

Bank Robber

Super easy to do. All you need are black pants/jeans, a black and white striped top, a black beanie and a black mask (or just a black stocking with holes cut in for your eyes). Hands up!

Salt and Pepper

If you’re going as a couple, and don’t have a ready idea for either one of you, this one is ridiculously easy. And if you don’t have the fabric paint, don’t worry yourself. Just cut out the letters from black and white chart paper, and stick them on. Tada!

Ghost

This may be cliched, but it truly is in spirit (see what we did there?) with the theme of the night. All you need is an old, plain white bedsheet, and a pair of scissors, and you’re all set.
