5 Last Minute Halloween Costumes

So you're going out tonight but have nothing to wear. 

Halloween is my favorite holiday. Favorite. It's the slightly spooky essence of October and the eerie supernatural feeling in the air. It's my favorite children's book, and it's my love for all things bigger than ourselves. Halloween is also about friends getting together, parties being planned, celebrations taking place for a time that has nothing to do with family or coming home and everything to do with fun. It's also my birthday eve and the best way to kickstart my birthday! 

Every year around August I start to dream up a costume that is cute, funny, and comfortable. I invariably discover at least 25 on Pinterest and then realize Halloweekend is only three nights long with the odd day adventure. This year, I finally invested in a tutu, so my main costume certainly centers around this, but there are easy, less intense costumes perfect for the spontaneous party or as a post-workday-hanging-at-the-house look come Monday when you have to dole out candy.

I've rounded up my favorite five below if you're in need of a great last minute costume...


Just grab some eyeliner, to make the lines, blush up those cheeks, and stay warm in flannel! (via)

Get all wound up about how awesome Halloween is using a simple paper towel roll! (Tutorial)

All you need are colored popsicle sticks, a red balloon, and your most comfortable outfit. Yassss. (tutorial)

Paint a cute nose on yourself, slap on some animal ears (or make two top buns with a little bit of your hair to make ears) and cut out a piece of cardboard for this great look. (via)


I was this two years ago, and all you need is a yellow dress and some green construction paper. Easy peasy! (tutorial)

+Which one do you love the most/ are you bookmarking for next year? 

Share your costume with Emily this weekend!
