Does this sound like your current situation? You spent weeks searching for a bomb Halloween costume and had everything planned out. You hated how your last costume turned out and promised that you would kill it this year.
But slowly, everything falls apart. You waited too long to pick up that one statement piece that makes your costume and now everything is ruined. There are only 3-2-1 days left until Halloween and you have no idea what to wear.
The good news is that you still have time to pull off a creative, original Halloween costume. The best part is that you can shop your closet for most of these items. Here’s a roundup of the best DIY Halloween costumes for when you’re running out of time-and cash!
1. Chanel #3 from Scream Queens
This is one of the easiest last-minute Halloween costumes to recreate. Don’t forget to pick up a fake syringe from your local halloween store for season two vibes.
2. Cookie from Empire
Before you buy anything, raid your closet for the following: Figure hugging leopard dress? Check. Bold red lipstick? Check. Take-no-prisonor attitude? Triple check.
3. Daenerys Targaryen
Dressing like the Mother of Dragons is simple. Here’s what you’ll need to grab: A blonde wig with a braided crown, a solid colored maxi dress and a ridiculously cute stuffed animal dragon and you’re all set!
4. Wednesday Adams
Your obsession with black + collared dresses is about to pay off. Wednesday Adams is the epitome of Halloween. Disapproving frown not included.
5. Olivia Pope from Scandal
Your halloween crisis is handled. Channel the original gladiator’s minimalist, neutral toned style in a trendy caped coat or powerful blazer, pressed blouse and beautifully tailored trousers.
6. Unbreakable Kimmy Schidmt
Who isn’t in love with Kimmy Schidmt’s sunny personality? Don’t worry if a majority of your closet is black. All you need are a cardigan and pair of jeans that are as bright as her smile!
7. Justice from Poetic Justice
You can’t go wrong with the classics. Janet Jackson was a total trendsetter in Poetic Justice. Her long box braids, high waisted jeans and stylish crop top made her a 90s style icon.
