Easy Last Minute Halloween Costumes
I can’t be the only mom on the planet that likes to do the fun unique costume…but also wait until about 1 week before Halloween to buy everything I need, so really this is just an ode to how I do holidays.
I have learned over the years that some of my favorite costumes are SO simple, so honestly can be done last minute – and thanks to Amazon prime we all can be just as last minute as we want to be.
All the costumes in this post are shown on my kids, but most if not all of them could be turned into an adult costume too! I will explain the details needed for the costume, but remember – it is all about improving and being creative.
For Avé’s look it was literally just a plum tutu and some felt that was NOT glued to the tutu in any way…and for a fun side kick Walker stole the show as Meeko!
To create this look on your own you need:
- Yellow/Ivory/Tan dress – I went with the Plum Tutu
- Teal, Tan, Red and Brown Felt
This costume is pretty simple. Black and white stripes and masks and some little money bags will do the trick. We went with June and January for the stripes (and see how I used it for another costume idea here last year), and I made the masks – but that is normally something you can find at even the dollar store!
Walkers face was an added bonus – not needed for the look haha.
Tired New Parents
Talk about a costume that basically anyone can throw together, right? This one had me cracking up. For this costume we TRULY used what we had. I shoved the stroller full of blankets and diapers (and the kitchen sink). Jack is wearing Avé’s Fawn Design mini, and I asked them to look tired…which I think Avé nailed.
Chip and Joanna Gaines
Who doesn’t love Chip and JoJo? A good fixer upper costume is always a good idea. This costume was really simple – we used clothes we already had but added an apron as a tool belt for Jack.
For this costume we needed:
- An open Flannel shirt on Avé with cute pants and shoes – go stylish yet comfy
- For jack we went with jeans, a t shirt, and a vest. Add some work boots for shoes
- Last but not least was the tool belt (less than $5) and they were looking HGTV ready!
Again a costume that is basically ready to go with NO extras – I had everything for this costume. I dressed her good and stylish, added some of the must have items for the current times, and added a letter board. Have fun with this – you cold take this in a funny, mocking, or silly way.
