Halloween is in just a few days! If you haven’t picked a costume yet, you’ll love these easy last minute costumes. Whether you need something for you, a kid, or the whole family!
I just love Halloween! Always have. The dressing up, the candy, and the general fun atmosphere that is in the air. When the kids were really small, we usually just grabbed something from the dress up box. The last 2 years I managed to convince them into doing a family costume, but not this year. We’ve been talking about costumes for this year since Halloween last year.
We had almost everyone convinced on a family costume, but one wouldn’t go for it. And when one defects, the rest tend to follow. So while I’ve made a few costumes, and some kids have put together costumes from things around the house, I had a few looking for some last minute costumes this weekend still.
If you’re in the same boat as us, then I have a feeling you’ll find something on this list to make over the weekend.
Last Minute TV and Movie Based Costumes
Everyone wants to be their favorite movie or tv character. These last minute costumes will let you and the kids pretend to be someone famous, if just for a night or two.
These Duck Dynasty costumes here on A Day In Motherhood, may not be homemade, but if you have the right things laying around, they could be. Similarly, these Thing 1 and Thing 2 from A Day In Motherhood can easily be made out of a red shirt and paper.
Perhaps your more of a Cool Joe type. In that case make sure to watch the video in the link to see how to become Joe Cool.
Both this Easy Audrey Hepburn Halloween Costume from The Pinning Mama and this Last-minute The Martian Costume from Daily Mayo can be altered for any age, and you most likely have most of the costumes laying around your house.
Creative Last Minute Costumes
I always loved finding the more creative costumes as a kid. Many times I was a witch, but when I wasn’t, I chose to be things like A Shower, A Crow, and A Housewife.
Both the Skeletons from Red Ted Art and the Trick or Treat Candy Bag from Desert Chica can be whipped up in the matter of an hour or so. Easy peasy for those kids who truly just can’t decide and Mom decides for them.
This Easy Kid’s Zebra Costume from Kenarry will take a bit more time, maybe an afternoon, but will look amazingly adorable on anyone. Make sure to grab her free mask pattern!
Fun Last Minute Family Costumes
There isn’t anyone I’ve run into that doesn’t love a good family costume. It definitely says something awesome about those families who go all out together.
Easily my favorite was the year we put together our DIY Inside Out Family Costume. The kids still talk about it, even if they don’t want to be that family anymore.
Once again, this Pac Man Family Costume from Domestic Imperfection shows us just how awesome cardboard can be used to make last minute costumes for the whole family.
