Last Minute Halloween Ideas

Last Minute Halloween Ideas

Halloween is one of the most amazing times of the year. After all, it is the only time of the year you can walk outside wearing a giant bear costume and be generally accepted by your community. That may have been a rather extreme example, but in all seriousness, if you are ready for Halloween, you’re all set, but what if you have waited until the last minute? If that is the case, then you have a serious problem as the majority of stores are going to be sold out of Halloween supplies. This includes costumes and probably candy. The following are a few tips you can use as last minute Halloween ideas:

Make your Own Costume

Yes, you can make your own costume so long as you have the patterns, the material, and a bit of sewing experience. You should note however that this is the more expensive option, and you will also find that trying to do this on short notice typically ends in problems. Sewing machines might get the job done faster as long as you have the right thread, so do some research before you undertake this daunting task. If you are looking for something a bit more frugal, you should keep reading.

Borrow

Borrow a costume from a friend! This is a great idea, as your friends will likely have costumes from previous years. Chances are they will never wear them again, but with you they can be brand new.

Improvise

Operating under the assumption that all stores are sold out, you will need to improvise a bit, so why not be a zombie? If you do your job right, you can create a family friendly zombie outfit on a rather frugal budget. If you really want to improvise, you could always pull off a princess costume using makeup and a dress from the back of your closet! There are so many things you can do if you just improvise a little! Can you imagine the infinite number of possibilities?

When you are coming up with last minute Halloween ideas you will need to think of things that no one else can come up with. Is this difficult? Sometimes. There are so many things laying around your house that you can use to create the perfect last minute Halloween costume for you or your children. Just think, you have your bathrobe, sports equipment, uniforms, and virtually any number of other items. If you are so inclined, you can even take the karate kid route and use your shower curtain! Going trick-or-treating as an everyday object might seem lame right now, but once you get out into the world, others will find you to be absolutely amazing! You only have a day or less until Halloween, so now would be the ideal time to start digging through your closet and becoming the person you have always wanted to be — even if it is only for a night.
