Last Minute Halloween Costume Ideas

It's that time of year again. Halloween is just around the corner, and millions of children are about to go trick-or-treating. Tomorrow is the unhealthiest day of the year, in which you trespass stranger's property, knock at their door in ridiculous costumes, and beg for candy, and get stomach problems later that night. But what if you don't have the most important part ready yet: The costume. That's right, I'm talking to you, indecisive kids and lazy parents! It's your fault that you haven't chose one yet!

Obviously, it is way too late to go out in buy one. For your own safety, I wouldn't recommend going to a Halloween store on the 30th unless you are prepared to get trampled by crowds of last-minute costumes. So the only option you have at this point is to make some homemade costumes. But with so many ideas out there, it can be hard to pick. That is why I am giving you some tips on the best homemade costumes you can make this year, that are easy enough to make in less than 15 minutes. With these, you are 100% guaranteed to be the one kid in the entire neighborhood who gets the  most candy!

You can choose to go retro... 

That's right! You can find an old Windows XP computer that may be lying around in your house at the moment and tape the monitor and keyboard to yourself! They are the big, fat, and ugly ones from the 90s. Bill Gates would be proud! Just don't expect to be the fastest runner on the street...

Or be trendy!

You can be everyone's favorite slab of plastic that was only popular for two months! Of course, you don't have to put in as much effort as the person above clearly did. 5-second costume tip: Just hot glue a bunch of fidget spinners to every part of your body! That way, 5 year-olds will want to walk up to you just for the purpose of spinning you. 

Who doesn't love Star Wars?

You can be the lovable, totally not annoying alien from the Star Wars prequel movies, which everyone loves: Jar Jar Binks. Forget knitting a hat: just attach duct tape to the sides of your ears, walk along clumsily, and annoy everyone by constantly saying "meesa". When you ask for candy, you can say, "Meesa wantsa da trickees and treat!"

Best costume for two people at once!

This one is for people who want to switch things up a bit. Get another person to go with you, and each dress up as joy-cons on the Nintendo Switch! This project should snap into place pretty nicely, but you will need quite a lot of cardboard and paint. It will be hard to walk, but at least you know that Reggie Fils-Aime is proud of you.

No costume? No problem!

You can be John Cena for Halloween! If you decide not to go trick-or-treating, just tell people that you are John Cena. Why? Because they can't see you.

I hope that this list helped prepare you for tomorrow. Have fun! 10/10 ideas, right? Thank me later.
