Easiest costumes EVER.
Halloween is an open invitation to be — and dress as — just about anything or anyone, which makes it one of our favorite holidays of the year. Some Halloween enthusiasts even go so far as to imagine multiple looks for trick-or-treating, Halloween parties and school events happening in October! This spooky holiday always sneaks up on us fast, and it's easy to lose track of time — thankfully, these last-minute Halloween costume ideas will inspire your next creative DIY (and they won't take much time at all to put together).
Before you rush to the craft store or start filling up your Amazon cart, take a closer look at what you already own because most of the homemade costume ideas on our list, which range in price, theme and crafting ability, are simply an elevated version of what you already have hanging in your closet. It's easy to throw the creative looks on our list together with just a few accessories and a little makeup. Choose from pop culture Halloween costumes, couple's Halloween costumes inspired by your favorite TV stars (Helga Pataki, Sabrina or JoAnna Gaines), LOL-worthy memes (Arnold with a clenched fist), and classic crowd-pleasers (a bat, pineapple or fun take on a tongue twister). Really, that makes all of these genius, party-ready picks the best Halloween costumes ever, right? Your wallet and Instagram feed vote yes.
