Halloween costumes for the last minute shoppers

Fall is undoubtedly my favorite season of the year. Nothing beats the blankets of colored leaves on the ground, the perfect sweater-weather climate or the fall-inspired seasonal snacks.

Fall also marks the beginning of the holiday season, and the first big day to kick everything off is, of course, Halloween.

If you love Halloween as much as I do, then you know that simple costumes simply won’t do.

You may be stuck thinking you’ve used all of your most creative ideas in years past, but thankfully there is a little website called Pinterest, also known as the beholder of endless costume inspiration.

A simple search for “Halloween costumes” will bring up infinite options.

An easy place to start is the queen of costumes: Lauren Conrad. Put a simple twist on a classic fairy costume by copying her tooth fairy ensemble.


You can also draw inspiration for your favorite old school movies. Grab the plaid in your closet and your junior high brick flip phone and channel Cher from the teen classic “Clueless.” Top it off with some serious sass, and your look is complete!

Since you’re already rummaging through your closet, you can opt for a simpler look by digging out your threads from your last tropical vacation and throwing on a fruit hat. If anyone asks, you can say you’re the Tropicana girl, or Carmen Miranda if salsa dancing is more your thing.

For the fashion girls out there with a plus one, look no further than Ashley Madekwe and Iddo Goldberg’s phenomenal Karl Lagerfeld and his prized cat Choupette’s recreation.

Finally, if you know your way around a hot glue gun, your options are truly endless. Two of my favorites that I found throughout my endless scanning was this super cute popcorn outfit or this fun and funky disco ball.

Happy haunting!
