Easy Last-Minute Halloween Costumes

1. Pig in a blanket

Two girls in a pig costume


To start is this pun-inspired costume, ideal for anyone looking for a quick and simple costume.

All you need are three items to create this look: a blanket, a pink T-shirt, and a set of animal accessories to transform you into a pig.

This costume really is that simple. If you don’t happen to have these items on hand, you will be able to purchase them all on Amazon and have them delivered to your door.

This look is all about minimal effort, but what it certainly doesn’t lack is comical or Halloween fun.

Copy the look:

2. Bandit

While this outfit may be an oldie, it’s definitely a goodie, and it’s one that never goes out of style where Halloween is concerned.

For this last-minute Halloween costume, play the thief in a classic striped top, a pair of black jeans, a beanie to keep a low profile, and, of course, a set of black gloves and a mask to keep your cover.

This outfit works particularly well as a pair or as part of a larger group. It goes without saying that the cop and bandit duo is a timeless costume classic, one that you and your bestie can have fun recreating.

Copy the look:

3. Sriracha Bottle

Spice things up in this condiment-inspired costume. Like most of the costumes in this guide, there is little to no preparation necessary.

It also won’t have you breaking the bank.

So if you can take the heat, all you’ll need is a red T-shirt complete with the markings of a traditional sriracha bottle, as well as a green cone-shaped hat.

I don’t know about you, but this look has me feeling hot, hot, hot!

Copy the look:

4. Holy Guacamole

Sticking with a culinary theme, why not dress up as what has to be one of the most Instagrammed foods of all time. Period.

But give it a comedic twist in this last-minute Halloween costume.

The look requires nothing more than a green T-shirt, a halo, avocado cut-outs, and good-old double-sided tape for attaching the cut-outs onto the shirt.

Who knew that your favorite food, one that can be smashed, blended, diced, and baked, could also transform itself into a winning Halloween costume?

Copy the look:

5. Minion

Bello! That’s hello in minion, something you’ll probably say all night long in this adorable costume.

Now, being a minion, itself may not be easy under Mr. Gru, but this outfit is anything but complicated.

Just take a yellow T-shirt, some denim overalls, black gloves, some goggles, and a sharpie to draw on the iconic minion logo, and you’ll nail your outfit.

Copy the look:

6. Baseball Player

You’ll be hitting home runs in this American baseball player costume. Indeed, we guarantee that you definitely won’t strike out in it either.

How could you, when all it takes is a classic raglan T-shirt, leggings of some kind, knee-high socks with stripe details, and a baseball cap?

Feel free to carry around your own glove and bat to really knock this outfit out of the park.

Copy this look:

7. Error, Costume Not Found

For those hoping to put in the least amount of prep work possible, opt for this “Error, Costume Not Found” costume.

While it may be on the minimalist side of Halloween costumes, this does not detract from its effectiveness.

The T-shirt can be ordered on Amazon, or if you’re feeling more creative and perhaps have more time on your hands, you could use an old plain white T-shirt and write the message on it yourself with a fabric pen.

Either way, in this costume’s case, less really is more!

Copy the look:

8. Alvin and the Chipmunks

Grab a group of friends and get together to transform yourselves into everyone’s favorite singing chipmunks!

Start with a set of oversized sweatshirts (red, green, and blue if you’re trying to stay true to the movies).

Add a chipmunk accessory set complete with cute headpieces and the group’s signature round glasses.

From there, cut a yellow card into the letter “A.” All that remains is to attach the letter using clear tape to whoever is playing Alvin and leading the group this Halloween!

Copy the look:

9. Cereal Killer

If you have a weakness for puns — like me — you’ll love this incredibly clever and easy last-minute Halloween costume.

To recreate the punny look, you’ll need a plain white T-shirt, fake blood, extra strong glue, a Sharpie, and plenty of old mini cereal boxes.

Simply write “Cereal Killer ” on the shirt, scatter fake blood across it, and attach as many mini cereal boxes to it as you want.

Complete the look by applying fake blood over your face and body, and you just might be the scariest pun there is!

Copy the look:

10. M&M’s

For the sweet tooth in you, dress up as one of your favorite candies! Pick your color, whether that’s red, blue, or green, and purchase the corresponding T-shirt. Yes, that’s it!

It’s a ridiculously easy and delicious last-minute Halloween costume. However, we can’t promise that you won’t end up eating yourself silly on M&M’s by the end of a night of partying and trick or treating!

Copy the look:

Spongebob Squarepants Large Smile T-Shirt

For the sweet tooth in you, dress up as one of your favorite candies! Pick your color, whether that’s red, blue, or green, and purchase the corresponding T-shirt. Yes, that’s it!

It’s a ridiculously easy and delicious last-minute Halloween costume. However, we can’t promise that you won’t end up eating yourself silly on M&M’s by the end of a night of partying and trick or treating!


11. Scarecrow

You won’t scare anyone too much in this costume. Plus, a few items are all it takes to transform yourself into a traditional allotment scarecrow.

A check shirt, a pair of jeans or denim overalls, and a classic scarecrow hat like this one from Amazon, which comes with a straw necklace, are the staples of this outfit.

For those of you who are more artistically inclined, grab some face paint to truly transform yourself into the ultimate scarecrow!

Copy the look:

12. Smarty Pants

You can never really go wrong with a good pun, and this one tastes as good as it looks!

The costume consists of a shirt, a dickie bow, geek glasses, trousers or jeans, and last but not least, Smarties Candy Rolls.

Double-sided tape can be used to attach the candies to your pants. By the time you’re done, you’ll look like quite the smarty pants!

Copy the look:

13. Magic 8-Ball

This costume is unbelievably simple and easy to put together.

Yes, for this costume, all you’ll need is a blue cone (a party-style hat will suffice) on which you’ll write the various outcomes that the Magic 8-Ball gives, as well as a T-shirt complete with the game’s iconic logo.

Don’t count on others not taking note of your outfit and stealing it for next year’s Halloween. The outlook is very good for this last-minute Halloween costume!

Copy the look:

14. Hogwarts Student

Expelliarmus! Bring some magic to the celebrations in this enchanting look. You can be Harry, Hermoine, or Ron this Halloween.

The good part about this costume is that many of the items can be used again, such as the grey sweater and the white shirt.

Although the same can’t be said for the traditional Hogwarts cape, the glasses, or the wand.

However, you’ll certainly put a spell on every trick or treater in this costume!

Copy the look:

15. Nerd

This outfit is built for the intellectual, the academic, and the student in you. In fact, it’s as clever as you are!

A reasonably priced accessory set featuring glasses, a bow tie, and a name badge will have you looking brainy and full of knowledge.

Simply put on a smart shirt, add suspenders (always bound to add an intellectual flair) as well as a pair of smart trousers, and you’ll look and feel like you’re back at school!

Copy the look:

16. Rick and Morty

Known for their intergalactic adventures and repeated mishaps, this two-person costume is perfect for any pair looking to go as one of TV’s most popular duos.

If you’re channeling your inner Rick Sanchez, all you’ll need is a white lab coat, a blue sweater, a pair of brown trousers or chinos, and to really solidify the look, a blue wig, and eyebrow set.

For the Morty Smiths, it’s even easier. Just a yellow shirt and blue jeans are needed to create the second half of this hilarious duo.

Copy the look:

17. Breadwinner

If puns are your thing — as they are mine — this costume is perfect for you. It also won’t require hours of prep work, and it’s made up of only a few items.

First, any classic T-shirt (preferably blue) will be suitable. You’ll pair it with a sports headband and a gold medal.

Then, just grab a loaf of bread, carry this around with you during the night, and your costume is ready to be showcased!

Copy the look:

18.  French Kiss

French fashion and classic rock collide in this outfit, producing an incredibly original look. For the French part of this outfit, you’ll need a long sleeve striped top and a red scarf, which will have you looking every bit Parisian — a beret and a French baguette can be added to the costume if you are going all out.

The rock and roll aspect comes in the form of the bold Kiss-inspired face paint that became emblematic of the 1970s band. Rock on in this costume with a European twist!

Copy the look:

19. Sailor

Bon voyage! It’s all aboard in this maritime outfit that won’t leave you drowning in costume preparation.

Of course, you’ll need the classic striped T-shirt, along with the sailor hat and scarf that can be purchased at an affordable price from Amazon.

White loose trousers or chinos will round off the look as you sail the night away.

Copy the look:

20. Hydro Flask

They’re everyone’s favorite water bottle, and now, you can literally be one this Halloween! This outfit works best in large groups, but if you’re riding solo this Halloween, that works fine too.

Simply choose which color Hydro Flask you wish to be, and use a fabric gel roller or pen such as this one from Amazon to decorate your oversized T-shirt with the popular Hydro Flask logo.

Last-Minute Halloween Costumes for Girls

You’ll look cute as a button in this costume. It’s low cost, simple, and allows for some personalization.

An adorable red polka dot skirt, a black T-shirt, and signature ears are all that you need to play this childhood character. After all, who wouldn’t want to be Minnie Mouse for a day?

Grease is the word in this costume, which pays homage to one of the most well-known musicals of all time.

Copy the look:

23. Greek Goddess

While this outfit is not for the faint-hearted, for a last-minute Halloween costume, you won’t even have to leave your house to create it.

Wrap and pin a white sheet around yourself. This will form the basis of the outfit.

Then, add some gold vine ribbon to the sheet, and wear it as a headpiece if possible.

Of course, if you don’t fancy making this, I recommend opting for a one-shoulder white dress and gold heels.

This may be inspired by ancient times, but you’ll look anything but outdated in this daring look.

Copy the look:

24. Dora the Explorer

Go exploring in this outfit that will take you right back to your childhood. By the time you’ve assembled your costume, you’ll look like you’re ready for an adventure.

At some point in a girl’s life, she’ll dress up as a bunny for Halloween. It’s your turn this year! An age-old costume like this requires little time, money, or stress.

If you want to be comfy, cozy, and look the part, sport a bunny onesie for the night.

If you’re planning on getting more dressed up, then a little black dress, a set of bunny ears, a dickie bow, and a bunny tail will have you hopping right into the party!

Copy the look:

26. Cosmic Brownie

For those with a sweet tooth, this tasty looking outfit is perfect.

Cosmic brownies are just as popular now as they were when they first emerged in the 1950s, and now, you can even dress up like one in this last-minute Halloween costume!

A plain brown dress forms the basis of the look. Assorted colorful pom-poms will then be attached to the dress, at which point you and your outfit will truly be out of this world, not to mention delicious!

Copy the look:

27. Dorothy From The Wizard of Oz

This costume is ready and waiting for you somewhere over the rainbow.  So be your own Dorothy this Halloween!

A pair of red heels are essential, which should be worn with a gingham pinafore and white shirt underneath.

Tie your hair in pigtails and add red ribbons to complete the outfit.

We can’t guarantee that anything will happen if you rub your heels together, but you’re bound to wow others with this theatrical look!

Copy the look:

28. Tinkerbell

Sprinkle some magic into Halloween with this Tinkerbell costume. Your outfit will feature the fairy’s signature light green dress and her all-important fairy wings.

Copy the look:

29. Carole Baskin

All you crazy cats out there will love this one. She’s become one of the most talked-about TV and internet personalities over the past year, and her style is equally recognizable.

Embrace your cat-loving tendencies this Halloween; Amazon offers the perfect set, complete with a flower crown and an animal print blouse.

Just add bootcut or flare jeans, and carry around your stuffed cat toy as you transform yourself into Carole Baskin for the night.

Copy the look:

30. ‘Hit Me Baby One More Time’

Go back to school as you take on one of pop culture’s most infamous looks.

In her acclaimed music video, Britney Spears sports a revamped school uniform, pigtails, and heels — you can do the same this Halloween!

This last-minute Halloween costume consists of a white shirt tied at the waist, a gray cardigan, a black skater skirt, black knee-high socks, heels, and, of course, the pink pom-pom hair bands.

What are you waiting for? Go and get your Britney on!

Copy the look:

31. The Handmaid’s Tale

Step right into Gilead in this dystopian look. Not only is it an easy costume to assemble, it will also be instantly recognized by others who are fans of the award-winning novel and TV series.

To capture Atwood’s vision of the future, you’ll need a large red cape, brown boots, and, of course, a white bonnet. Blessed be your Halloween costume this year!

Copy the look:

32. Clueless

In a stylish throwback to the ‘90s blockbuster, this costume celebrates the film Clueless and Cher Horowitz, its lead character!

You’ll need the classic co-ord, featuring a gingham blazer, a white T-shirt, a yellow cardigan, and a gingham skirt, as well as a pair of white stockings.

White heels will finish the look off, and by then, it will be lights, camera, and action as you debut this movie star look!

Copy the look:

33. Tooth Fairy

Does she exist? Does she not exist? Who knows for sure? Either way, this Halloween, you can become a living version of the tale told by all of our parents.

Simply put on a white dress, a pair of fairy wings, and get crafty with a wooden stick and a white card.

The card will be used to cut out a tooth-shaped design, which will be attached to the end of the wooden stick — the tooth fairy can’t be without her wand. On this Halloween night, you are the tooth fairy!

Copy the look:

34. Party Animal

In keeping with other pun-inspired costumes in this guide, this outfit is simple, funny, and can be adapted from person to person.

All you need are your choices of party clothes, such as a going-out dress or skirt and top.

Any kind of animal headwear set will suffice. If you feel like being a lion, a dog, or a cat, you can!

Of course, this costume can be worn out as a group, with each member taking on a different role. Party the night away in this easy Halloween costume.

Copy the look:

35. Breakfast at Tiffany’s

In an elegant tribute to Audrey Hepburn’s renowned role, you’ll keep things classy with this outfit based on the film Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

Slip into a black cocktail dress and accessorize with a beautiful pearl necklace. Then, add some black tea party gloves and a pair of cat sunglasses.

Complete the costume with a mini tiara, and you’ll look every bit like Holly Golightly.

Copy the look:

36. Ashley Spinelli

Who didn’t love watching Recess as a kid? This Disney Channel hit series had jokes, drama, friendship, and action in every episode.

Though I enjoyed watching the entire group, my favourite character had to be Ashley Spinelli. If you’re with me on this one, then you’ll love this Halloween costume.

The costume is easy too; all you’ll need is a leather biker jacket, a red dress, an orange beanie, black boots, and a pair of yellow and red striped socks, which can all be purchased from Amazon.

Copy the look:

37. Devil Wears Prada

Devil Wears Prada Costume


Just to be clear, this outfit doesn’t have you dressing up as Anne Hathaway or Meryl Streep, who both starred in the 2006 rom-com.

It’s another pun-inspired costume — personally, I can’t get enough of them.

As a devil-wearing Prada, you’ll need a Prada top of any kind, or a top that you don’t mind writing the logo on, as well as a set of devil ears.

That’s all it takes to create this last-minute Halloween costume.

Copy the look:

38. ‘Girl with a Pearl Earring’

Johannes Vermeer, the Dutch Golden Age artist, painted “Girl with a Pearl Earring” in 1665.  Since then, it has remained a timeless work of art.

This year, you can capture the painting in all its simplicity and beauty during the Halloween period.

Simply wrap your hair up in a beige head wrap, and layer it with a light blue head wrap. Put on a white shirt and, again, layer that with a brown blouse over the top.

Of course, this look isn’t complete without a pair of pearl earrings!

Copy the look:

39. Unicorn

It’s no myth that unicorns will never go out of style when it comes to Halloween costumes. This costume is bound to add some magic, some color, and a little glitter to the night.

It’s easy too; a white dress and a unicorn headband are all you need to transform into the magical creature.

Alternatively, a rainbow tutu and a white shirt would make an equally dazzling last-minute Halloween costume!

Copy the look:

40. Wonder Woman

This list ends on a heroic note, and it celebrates feminine power and strength in a superhero-themed costume.

Wonder Woman is a force to be reckoned with, and her costume will stand out just as much as she does!

So if you feel like playing the part of a global superhero this Halloween season, simply order a Wonder Woman T-shirt from Amazon, as well as the tiara that Wonder Woman is always seen wearing.

You might not be able to slay the world in this costume, but you will slay any holiday party in it!

All of these items can be purchased online from Amazon to be delivered just in time for the celebrations. The only question that will remain after sporting this costume is the red or blue pill?

Copy the look:

43. Joe Exotic

A family in Joe exotic inspired outfits

I would struggle to believe anyone who claims to have not heard of this man. Otherwise known as the Tiger King, Joe Exotic was first introduced to the world in his Netflix show, which entertained us all during quarantine.

It’s safe to say that his personality is just as wild and bold as his style, making this a fun and exciting costume to put together.

To be the legend that is Joe Exotic this Halloween, you’ll need an exotic patterned shirt, a pair of jeans, and an accessory set featuring a stick-on mustache, fake piercings, a wig, and a baseball cap.

The Friends gang recently rekindled their unmistakable bond to film a special reunion episode. So how could we not reference the series at least once in our guide?

We based a costume on one of the show’s most memorable storylines for the ladies’ man, Joey Tribbiani; in the show, the soap opera star is always seen wearing a doctor’s coat, a shirt and tie, as well as a stethoscope around his neck.

Create your own version of this memorable fictional doctor, played by the legendary actor Matt LeBlanc.

Copy the look:

47. Diego from Dora the Explorer

Diego the explorer

We couldn’t mention Dora the Explorer without also mentioning her partner, right? With this in mind, two people can team up to create this adventurous duo.

Of course, Diego can also ride the night solo. To create this look, grab a baby blue T-shirt, cargo shorts, a well-pocketed fishing vest, walking boots, as well as a crossbody bag, and the exploring can begin!

Copy the look:

48. Jughead Jones

I have to admit that I am not up to date on all things Riverdale.

But, like many others, I binged my way through the first three seasons, hooked by the murder, secrets, and romantic storylines between the characters.

One notable character is Jughead Jones, though his style is incredibly simple, making it the ideal foundation for a last-minute Halloween costume.

All this look needs is a sherpa-lined denim jacket, jeans, a black T-shirt, a flannel shirt, and, of course, the hat that Jughead wears in every single scene!

Copy the look:

49. Farmer

If you want to opt for a more laid-back look this Halloween season, this country look is perfect. You’ll be ready for country life in this outfit, and it won’t have you spending a fortune.

A cowboy

Howdy there! Fancy bringing a bit of the Wild West to Halloween this year? Well, this outfit will do just that, and it won’t require a lot of prep work either.

You’ll be saying yee-haw in no time in this costume!

Copy the look:

52. Sherlock Holmes

Sherlock Holmes

Play detective in this costume, which is ideal for anyone short on time but hoping to impress their guests.

While it may be easiest to purchase this comprehensive Holmes costume, you can also assemble the look yourself.

You’ll need a long tweed coat and hat, a magnifying glass, and a pipe to start solving mysteries this Halloween!

Copy the look:

53. Mr. Bean

Played by the hilarious Rowan Atkinson, Mr. Bean was a character that had everyone laughing. His unique look can be easily replicated for this year’s Halloween costume.

If you’re a fan of the animated show Family Guy,  then this last-minute costume will be right up your street.

Stewie Griffin, one of the series’s most popular characters, sports an outfit that is very easy to put together.

In order to copy this look, a yellow shirt would be suitable; pair the yellow shirt with red overalls and plimsolls and you are good to go.

Carrying around a stuffed teddy bear would also add to the look since the character is known for his childlike behavior.

Copy the look:

55. Old School Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson

I can still remember when this meme first surfaced and blessed my social media feed. In a throwback picture of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, the movie star is seen dressed in all things ‘90s.

If you feel like recreating the look this Halloween, just put on a pair of mom jeans, a black turtleneck, a gold chain, and a classic fanny pack. This look really is that straightforward!

Copy the look:

56. Brawny

We all use them — everyday, probably. I’m talking about paper towels, which somehow are the inspiration for this next costume!

The product logo for Brawny paper towels features a strong-looking man, which you can dress up as this year for a Halloween costume that is a bit different, and a bit more creative than others.

It’s simple too; a black and red flannel shirt, jeans, and a pair of brown boots are all that this costume needs.

To guarantee that everyone knows exactly who you are, I also recommend carrying around a pack of Brawny paper towels for the night!

Copy the look:

57. Firefighter

Hopefully, you won’t have to put out any fires during the Halloween season. But should the event arise, at least you’ll look ready for action in this costume.

It only consists of a few items.

Simply purchase a fire crew T-shirt, put on a pair of black or navy blue trousers, whip out some red suspenders, and complete the look with a firefighter hard hat.

You’ll certainly look like the hero waiting to save the day.

Copy the look:

58. Mr. Incredible

On the subject of heroes, why not dress up as one of the most powerful and coolest superheroes that has ever graced our cinema screens?

As a child, The Incredibles was a film that I watched on repeat — much to the dismay of my family.

If you’re anything like me, recreating your own version of the film’s leading man this Halloween is a brilliant idea.

Not to mention that Amazon stocks all the items you’ll need to do this, like an Incredibles top, a superhero mask, and black gloves.

Copy the look:

59. Carlton Banks

As I grew up and grew out of The Incredibles, one of my favourite shows became The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.

I am a huge fan of Will Smith, but I couldn’t help but be entertained by his on-screen cousin Carlton Banks.

So, bring a bit of Bel-Air to Halloween this year in a costume that is simple and inexpensive.

The character most often appeared wearing a shirt of some kind (we’ve opted for a light blue one), smart trousers or chinos, smart shoes, and a sweater draped over his shoulders.

All that’s left to do now is put some Tom Jones on the speaker and dance like Carlton Banks!

Copy the look:

60. Peter Pan

To round out this guide, we’re taking you to Neverland for this final last-minute Halloween costume.

For this outfit, you don’t have to grow up, so let loose and enjoy the spooky celebrations. By no means is this look difficult to prepare; however, it will require some light craftsmanship.

An oversized green T-shirt will need to be cut at the hem to create a zig-zag design.

Pair this with a pair of green trousers or leggings, brown boots, as well as a classic Peter Pan hat, and you’ll be ready to fly off into the night.
