Are you one of those people who waits until the last minute to do everything? If so, then you probably still don’t have your Halloween costume planned out yet. While I usually have mine planned out months in advance (#crazy), I have plenty of friends who are procrastinators, so I’m used to coming up with last-minute ideas and whipping up some DIY costumes. Here are a few quick and easy costumes you can make with things you probably already own (and a few new additions after a quick run to Target or Amazon Prime spree).
Rosie the Riveter Halloween Costume
What better way to go against the feminine stereotypes of Halloween than to dress up as one of America’s most iconic women- Rosie the Riveter? All it takes for this costume is a blue button-up shirt (steal one from your boyfriend if you must), a red bandanna and some serious attitude. You get extra points if you do her infamous pose all night long.
Miss USA Halloween Costume
Another simple costume to whip up last minute is a beauty queen. Variations of this costume include a prom queen, Miss USA (to be specific) or whatever your heart desires. All that’s required is a glittery dress (this is the perfect opportunity to wear your old prom or homecoming dress again), a sparkling tiara, a sash, heels and some hot rollers.
Nerd Halloween Costume
Although it’s been overdone by most standards, going as a nerd is always a fun option. If you’re confident enough in yourself to rock this look, you’ll need an argyle sweater, a pair of thick-rimmed black glasses, and suspenders. If you choose to rock the retainer you wear at night, I applaud you.
