Same story every year? You are excited about Halloween for a month already, but now, that the day has come, you find yourself without having a clue about how to dress up. Or maybe you didn’t even plan to go out but changed your mind last minute. Don’t worry – there are always options to resort to, that don’t require days of preparation! In fact, there are some pretty clever costume ideas that are put together within half an hour. For many of them, you don’t even need any extra accessories or props, they are accomplished with some simple items that everyone has at home. Plus, they are so unique, that we can assure you to be THE talking point at your Halloween party.
When Life Gives You Lemons
Masquerading as an adage is always fun, as it’s so atypical. You are in fact impersonating a meaning, not only a role or a thing. Walk around as lemon-giving-life, offering the others fruits and you will be the star of the party. If you don’t have a LIFE top, take an old one and letter it yourself.
What you need: A simple t-shirt (like this one), a net full of lemons.
Movie Theater Floor
Maybe it’s difficult to guess but in the end, it will be even funnier when you make people ‘aaaaahhhhh’.
What you need: Black Pants (like these ones), a black top (like this one), candy packaging.
A different kind of breakfast: Go for a French style, add a toast et voilà!

Write on a plain white tee, add some cat accessories and take copy papers: In this outfit, you might be dressed up as a copycat but you won’t be one!
