5 Last Minute Costumes That Don’t Suck

spiritedWhat’s up people?? Long time no chat! I know, we’re bad blog moms. What better time to make our grand re-entrance than Halloween! The most stressful, yet fun and Instagramable time of the year where you can be whatever your little heart desires. Since most of you reading this probably don’t have a costume yet, here are some last-minute ideas that are cute and not horribly basic:


I am OBSESSED with the movie Now You See Me. If you haven’t seen it yet, please return to this post when you’re done. The wardrobe in that movie is my inspiration for this costume. It’s chic, fitted, and all black which is a plus. My vision is your favorite black jeans, boots, black tank/ body suit, and bomber jacket (so in right now)/ leather jacket. Then all you need is some white gloves, hat, and a wand. If you want to throw a little Two Sense touch, grab a fake bow tie from Party City. Abracadabra betch.


Party Animal

We’re all about the puns. This one might be a spin on being a cat but hey, whatever you got to do to show people that you tried. If you want to be cute and chic, grab your fur vest and cat ears, draw some whiskers, and carry around a bottle of bubbly all night. Or, if you want to be silly, grab one of those classic party hats from the dollar store. Boom, you’re hilarious. And don’t forget the leopard!


A great alternative to actually buying a costume is painting your face. Tons of my favorite Youtubers have put up tutorials this season on how to draw a skull and it’s surprisingly easier than it looks! I love this one and this one. I’d go all black and chic for this look. People would never know you didn’t buy a costume! And it gives you a chance to show off your inner Picasso.

Mary Poppins

God bless LC and her creativity. I know she did this a few years back and it’s seriously genius. All you need is a black flowy skirt, white button down, red bow tie, umbrella, and a black hat. Skip the tights if you’re feeling scandalous.



This costume requires a ton of highlight, glitter, and pastel colors. Start with some pink and blue glitter for the eyes, then dust your favorite highlighter on your cheeks. When you think you’re done add some more. Top it off with a pastel purple/pink lip gloss like this one from Revlon. Here’s a cute, inexpensive unicorn horn from Party City to finish off the look. Break out that white sundress from summer  for the rest of your outfit because screw the white after Labor Day rule. You’re a unicorn and unicorns make their own rules!
