In search of a last minute Halloween costume? Look no further. These three costumes came together from finding a base and building up. The creativity belongs to you! The looks are great for a dress-up day at school, a party, or handing out candy.
:As you might have noticed from above, the base for these three costumes are my red pants. You can use anything as your base: a black dress, a blue sweater, a pair of boots, etc. From the base, you build on layers to create your costume. This is very helpful for those who find it hard to imagine what you want to be.
Here is what I am wearing:
Sweater: JC Penny
My ears were found at a local Halloween store, but if you have old ones from DisneyWorld, or want to make a pair yourself, that works equally.
Starting with my red pants, I remembered that I owned a few cute winter hats, and decided to take a peek. When I found this sock monkey one with the red mouth, it fit perfectly with the pants. From there I added a 1/2 sleeved grey sweater and my white converse.
Here is where everything is from:
Sweater: JC Penny
Hat: JC Penny
This outfit combo could work with any hat and matching color clothes. It is great for trick and treating because it is cute, simple, and keeps you warm.
Cat in the Hat
I created this outfit from one of my old Halloween costumes. If you've ever bought a silly hat or have a family member with an old Halloween costume, use it to your advantage. You can also use makeup to enhance the look. I created the nose and whiskers with a black eyeliner. I am wearing a white shirt with a black jacket over it to recreate the cat in the hat. The same white converse (though not visible) are on my feet.
Here is where I got everything:
(same pants and shoes)
You can find a hat like this one at a local Halloween store, hat store, and probably most Target/Walmart stores. I purchased mine at a hat store dedicated to silly hats.
That is it for the Last Minute Halloween costume ideas! This post was more of an inspiration post than anything, With the help of a base layer, costume ideas come to life. Let me know in the comments below what you are being for Halloween. I will try and post on Halloween to show my costume for this year, but I hope you have a great week!
