Don’t Panic: 9 Easy Last-minute Halloween Costumes

It happens to the best of us. You get caught up in life, and before you know it, Halloween has crept up on you like the sneaky holiday it is. The most you probably have is a feather boa from some previous dress-up party, and a packet of stale nuts for the impending hordes of tricker treaters. Well, we can’t help you with the nuts (although you could always make your own candy), but we can definitely inspire you with some easy to recreate characters, right from your own closet.

The Countess

American Horror Story: Hotel is not for the faint of heart. However, we can’t help but love Lady Gaga’s character, The Countess, who is one of the most sophisticated and fashionable villains we are sure ever existed. Wear a black evening dress, or a black blouse and pencil skirt, with a faux fur scarf for just one of this temptress’s looks.

Imperator Furiosa

Don’t want anyone to mess with you on Halloween? Imperator Furiosa from Mad Max: Fury Road is your girl. She takes no hostages, and you shouldn’t either with this Halloween costume. All you need is black face paint or eye shadow, a tan blouse or shirt, and a black scarf with a few leather belts.

Mia Wallace

This is a classic. Pulp Fiction is a film with a firm cult following, so no one will mistake your black bob, white button-down shirt and black skinny jeans for being any one else besides Mia Wallace. Add a milkshake for extra effect.

Margot Tennenbaum

Margot Tennenbaum has been the inspiration behind many a fall trend this year. The camel fur coat and 70s retro vibe for Wes Anderson’s The Royal Tennenbaums fits right in with Halloween this year. And because she’s the inspiration behind fall fashion, you could probably construct her outfit from what you have already have in your closet. All you need now is a wooden finger.

Shoshanna

Shoshanna, from Girls, definitely has the most recognizable style on the show. If your hair is long, braid it, or twist it into a myriad of asymmetrical hairstyles for that Shosh look. Pair it with her unmistakably feminine touch, and a tendency to rabble, and you’ve got this in the bag. Channel season 4 Shoshanna with her adorable bob.

Mr. + Mrs Fox

Mr. and Mrs. Fox would make a marvelous couples costume. Just pop on a yellow dress (if it has red polka dots or apples, you’re winning!) and carry a few paint brushes to recreate this creative fox’s persona. You can print a fox mask, make one, or just get a headband with fox ears, or something similar, and then you’re set to go on your Halloween adventure.

Red

If there’s anything worth protecting, it’s the kitchen. Or more specifically, the place where the food is kept. Get some neutral pants, with a chef’s jacket, or a white collared shirt to get Red, from Orange Is The New Black’s look. Add some reading glasses and a fiery red matt of hair, and no one will dare mess with any treats while you’re near.

Wednesday Addams

A second classic character, and the original emo child, Wednesday Addams is a simple solution to your last minute Halloween woes. If you have a collared dress, all you’ll need are the pigtail braids. If not, pair a black skirt with a white button-down shirt underneath a black sweater, and presto!

Chanel Oberlin

Don’t forget our favorite co-president of Kappa Kappa Tau, Chanel Oberlin. This is a feminine look, so you’ll have to commit to flinging about some attitude, and possibly some fake blood to really nail this chic character.

If you love one of these characters but don’t have an item, you can get it now, on Piccing. Just click on the image, or upload your own Halloween inspiration to picc the look you want.
