Last-Minute Halloween Costumes for Procrastinators Like Me
I have a confession to make... I have not figured out what I will be for Halloween yet and I only have a matter of hours to figure out what I'll be at our office party.
Listen, life catches up on us real fast, I was out of town for several days, and I also got sick, so what I would be for Halloween was not exactly top of mind...
You may be in the same boat I'm in, or maybe you were so busy helping your kids with their costume that you completely neglected your own Halloween needs.
If you are still looking for an easy idea, here' a few suggestions to get you started.
Men In Black: Black suit, black tie, sunglasses. Done.
Kermit "But That's None of my Business" Meme: You do need to make a sign saying, "But that's none of my business", but aside from that, just wear a green shirt, maybe make Kermit's little green collar thing, and have a cup of tea with you!
Miss Universe: Make a little sash, find a small plastic tiara, and have some flowers with you.
50 Shades of Gray (PG Version): You should be able to grab paint swatches from Home Depot, Lowe's, or any other home improvement store. Find a bunch of gray ones and tape them to you!
Ketchup and Mustard: All you have to make is the bottle nozzle. Aside from that all you need is a red or yellow dress/shirt.
Rosie the Riveter: My wife did this one last year. All she did was wear jeans, a blue shirt, wear a bandana, and apply red lipstick.
Smart Cookie: If you still have a graduation gown in storage somewhere, dust it off, and tape a bunch of cookies to it.
Brawny Man: Easy one for guys. Any red flannel shirt. That's really it.
She Sells Sea Shells: If you have any seashells laying around, tape them to the inside of a coat to have a shady take on the tongue-twister.
Pop Art: This one could take a while to put together, but if you have the correct makeup/face paint, looks super cool when it's done.
