With Halloween being only two days away, I thought it might be fun to share some last-minute costume ideas in case any of you need inspiration. I’m also going to be sharing a few of my recent/favorite costumes because who doesn’t love a good trip down memory lane?
If you’re already set in the costume department, I’ve created a fun Halloween playlist that’s chock full of the classics and a few other tunes that may surprise you. Keep scrolling for the link to play on Spotify!
Easy Costume Ideas:
- Forrest Gump & Jenny – this costume is super easy for couples to put together at the last minute. Guys, tuck a short sleeve plaid shirt into some khakis. Add sneakers and a red hat (you can find all of these things at your local Goodwill store). Ladies, find a long and flowy white dress and throw together a flower crown. Y’all will go together like peas & carrots.
- Rosie the Riveter – all you need is a chambray shirt tucked into your favorite jeans, a red bandana, red lipstick, and a bad b*tch attitude.
- The Allstate Mayhem Guy – honestly, I consider this one funny for guys OR girls. All you need is a thrifted suit. Rip and dirty it up a little, slick your hair back and voila! You’re in good hands.
- Stranger things – this one is more fun with friends! Visit any Goodwill or thrift store and you’ll be able to find all sorts of retro goodies to pull it off. Don’t forget the Eggo waffles.
So tell me – what are you going to be for Halloween? What is your favorite costume you’ve ever put together? Are you more of a pre-fab or DIY costumer? Let me know in the comments and I hope you all have a very happy and safe Halloween.
