5 Last Minute Halloween Costumes

5 Last Minute Halloween Costumes

Halloween is right around the corner (less than 48 hours away) and I’m a major procrastinator. Every Halloween I usually put off making plans and putting together a costume until the last minute. I like to participate in the festivities of the day but I’m not trying to win any costume contests so I’m happy to slap together a costume at the eleventh hour.

This year I’m channeling a few of my favorite TV comedy characters.

Leslie Knope

My all time favorite show is Parks and Recreation (so incredibly sad that this is their final season). I love me some Leslie Knope and it’s seriously easy to put together a costume for her. Grab your go-to pant suit, button down shirt, a binder, print out a Pawnee book cover or the Parks and Rec Summer Catalog and you’re good to go.

Ron Swanson

Not feeling the Leslie Knope? Maybe you prefer Ron Swanson instead. He’s also a super easy character to dress up as. Grab a pair of khakis and polo (maybe a red one if you’re feeling lucky), add a lumber jack-esque coat and some home repair tools (maybe even wear a tool belt).

Oh wait, I forgot the most important part, Ron’s mustache.

I can’t grow my own on my face, so I made one out of felt and am keeping it on with double sided tape. If you can grow your own mustache then you do you and rock that ‘stache.

Jess

Not feeling Parks and Recreation at all? What about New Girl? Grab a flouncy empire waist dress, a bright cardigan, some hipster glasses and a bow. Tease your hair, pile on the mascara and slap on some red lipstick. Jess, is that you?

Mindy Lahiri

Have no idea how to tease your hair? It’s okay neither do I. Try going as Mindy Lahiri from The Mindy Project. Grab a colorful skirt, a bedazzled sweater (or sweater vest), layer it over a button down shirt. Add lab coat if you don’t think you’re hitting it home enough. Wear a side part and maybe some glasses if you think the costume needs it or if you actually need to wear glasses to see.

Grumpy Cat

Don’t want to dress up as another person? Try Grumpy Cat! This is more DIY intensive, but still easy and doable for a last minute costume. Hop over here for instructions on how to make the grumpy cat mask and grab a cream or beige colored sweater, a pair of leggings and you got yourself grumpy cat!

Not interested in making a mask? Try transforming yourself into Grumpy Cat with this awesome makeup tutorial instead.

Even if none of these costume ideas work for you here are a few great lists of last minute costume ideas. Hopefully this post or those lists help inspire your last minute Halloween costume this year!
