One of the easiest last minute Halloween costumes is the nerd getup. The essential things that you would need to embody a nerd are nerd glasses, flannel, pants, and book bag with books, which are mainly the items that everyone has in their closet. However, if you don’t own any glasses, grab the 3-D movie theater glasses, pop out the lenses and tape a piece of white paper to the middle! To complete the look, you can additionally add suspenders and high socks.



You can probably put together the cat costume in less than five minutes; all you need is eyeliner and all black clothing! Use the eyeliner to draw on the nose and some whiskers, and if you are feeling a little bit more creative you can definitely add on more cat features as you go along. Other than that, put on full black clothing and add on some cat ears if you have any, and you are ready to head out the door!



You might be familiar with children's book character Waldo, who seems to take the game of hide-and-seek a little bit too seriously. He might be hard to find, but he is one of the easiest characters to portray on Halloween. All you would need is a red striped shirt, blue jeans, red hat and round glasses. Not only will you be comfy all night long but you will also appear done up and creative!



The vampire costume is all makeup based, so you don’t have to worry much about your clothing choices. In order to look just like a vampire, you would need to put on a foundation lighter than your skin tone, draw dripping blood on the corners of the mouth and you are done! However, if you really want to take your costume to a whole other level, purchase fake vampire teeth to tie up the look!



If you are looking for a more extravagant Halloween look, try out the gypsy costume. Just wrap a scarf or a bandana around your head, put on a drapey dress and over-accessorize! Finish up the look with a bold makeup look and a crystal ball, which you can easily replace with a random snow globe!



You can easily transform into a hippie in a matter of seconds on the night of Halloween! Just pull out your colorful tie-dye shirt, put on loose pants, throw on circular shades and wrap a piece of fabric around your head. As long as you act the part, everyone will be convinced of your hippie persona!


Goth Girl

In case you feel like going a little bit darker and grungy with your Halloween costume, you can always choose to be a stereotypical goth girl for the night. The outfit would plainly require all of the dark and vampy clothing pieces that you own, plus some dark makeup with no hint of bold color. You can always accessorize with choker necklaces, dark rings and fake piercings.

With Halloween just around the corner, it’s important to have some last-minute Halloween costume ideas to rely on. What would be the costume of your choice for Halloween? I think I might prepare and do the nerd costume. :) Share in the comments.

I'm going to be a pirate for Halloween and I'm making the costume myself. It's really easy! I used a striped shirt, khaki cargo shorts, flip flops, a red bandana, and an eyepatch. If you want to make it even better, you could get a stuffed toy parrot and a pirate hat

Just wanna pass along the fact that 'G***y' is a racist word.

#2 looks like a raccoon ahahah sorry I had to say that...

I'm half Roma gypsy half Puerto Rican & we don't mind if people call us gypsies. We do mind if people stereotype us by thinking we're all fortune tellers or we live in camps or we dress like that Halloween costume. We don't mind to be called gypsies because that's what we are

Great costume ideas! Thanks

Saturday my friend had an early Halloween party. I really wanted to go but u didn't want to unveil my real costume so I quickly pulled together a cat costume. I wore all black, drew on a cat face, and fashioned my hair into cat ears. They have tutorials online it's not that complicated. It definitely helps pull off the cat look if you lack cat ears. Plus everyone said it was cute!

When is Halloween may I ask? Please answer back as soon as possible! Thanks:)
