If you were invited to a last-minute Halloween party, or you decided to take your younger sibling trick-or-treating and don’t have a costume, don’t fret. I’ve got you covered. These are all costumes you can complete in under five minutes.
Bread Winner – All you need for this one is a medal and a loaf of bread.
Holy Guacamole – Take a green shirt and tape a brown circular piece of paper to look like an avocado. Grab a simple angel halo headband, and you’re good to go.
Formal Apology – Dress up in your nicest outfit, and tape a piece of paper with “I’m sorry” written on it, and you’ll be the most formal apology people will see all night.
French Kiss – Although this may appeal to an older audience, if you paint your face like a member of KISS and wear a stiped shirt, you’ll get a good laugh out of everyone.
Pig in a blanket – This is the quickest costume out there. Grab some pink clothing, and draw a pig nose and put it on your own nose. Because it’ll be a chilly Halloween this year, the blanket is a perfect addition to keep warm.
Go for a classic:
The sheet ghost
A nerd -If you pull your pants up awkwardly too high, wear a button-up shirt and put on a pair of glasses with white tape in the middle, you’ve got the look.
Witch – If you wear all black, you’re halfway there. All that’s left is to top the look off with dark makeup and a witch hat.
Stranger things – Pick any character: Hopper, Eleven, Joyce, Will, Robin, or anyone else. The most popular characters from this year’s season will likely be Robin and Steve in their Scoop’s Ahoy uniform, so go for those to have a crowd-pleasing look.
Men in Black – Grab a pair of black sunglasses and a traditional black suit, and the costume is complete.
Bird Box – All you need for this one is a blindfold. Seriously, that’s it.
Any character from the Office – Who doesn’t love the Office? If you dress in semi-formal clothing, just pick a character and go with it.
A Sim – All you need to do is create a plumbob to go above your head, which you can do by attaching a piece of paper to a headband. This one is simple, and everyone will love it.
Frat Boy – All you need is a snapback, oversized button-down shirt and socks with sandals.
E-boy or e-girl – Just wear all black, do funky makeup and paint your nails black. Talk about Tyler, the Creator a lot, and you’re vibe will be perfect.
Beanie Baby – Wear an animal print, and draw the classic TY tag, and you’re done.
A homeowner of House Hunters with a strange job – Just dress in whatever you want, add a name tag with a simple name, and tell everyone that you have an obscure job like butterfly
A cowboy – Come on, I know you own boots or a hat. If not, you can always go to the Dollar Store and grab a bandana to tie around your neck.
Kiss – Similar to the one above, if you dress in all black and to the iconic black and white makeup look from the members, your look is done.
The Heathers – If you and two others wear all yellow, green and blue, you’re done. If you want to make the costume more interactive, then make a Tik Tok to one of the songs from the musical.
Peppa Pig family – This one is bound to get some laughs. Dress in all pink, wear a pig nose and oink a few times. If you speak with a British accent, you get extra points.
At the very least, you can grab a white sheet and be a ghost. As Lady Gaga said when she wore the same outfit in 2014, “The sheet ghost is a classic.”
