Easy last minute Halloween costume ideas

Not all Halloween parties call for a super expensive and impressive "I'm a special effects specialist who invested a hundred dollars in my costume" kinda look. Sometimes it's just a home party or a squad hang out and you want to come up with a pretty cool costume idea that is also both easy and cheap. And here comes this post to help you out on your important mission.

Below are 4 simple last minute Halloween costume ideas that you already have in your closet. All you need for a great look is to creatively combine some clothes and add some makeup.

Vampire

A trendy and simple take on the classical favorite would feature any black badass outfit. If you have something even slightly vintage looking that's a win but just a little black dress would also do the job. To finish the look add some makeup - smokey or cat eye, red lipstick, some fake blood and fangs and you're ready to party!

Minnie Mouse

I made this cute headband a couple years ago inspired by the ones they sale at Disneyland. It was a fun diy project, I really love how it turned out and I'm happy to wear at any given chance. I paired it with an outfit in red and black but it'd look even better with a polka dot top or dress.

Party at Gatsby's

Seriously everybody's favorite since the 2013 movie. I can't count how many people I've seen dressed in a 20s inspired outfit for Halloween or some themed party. And the fact that this cool look is so easy to pull off and affordable makes things even better. Any lace, sequined or fringe dress or a dress + top combo works and you can get creative with accessories.

Wednesday Addams

When we talk Halloween and spooky stuff Wednesday is one of the first characters that pop up in my mind. I love this outfit because it's super easy to recreate and at the same time you know everyone will recognize the character in like 2 seconds because it's a cult movie we've all seen many many times. And let me tell you the red nail polish + black lips combo is a dream come true for everyone who loves make up so have fun with it.

Mood boards! Yes, one of my favorite things and something I promised to write a post about. I love mood boards, I create ones pretty often, I always have a monthly one and I love to share them on social media because they are just so cool!

My favorite place for inspiration is ...(drumroll) the Internet! :D, especially Pinterest. It's a very organized and high quality content website and it's really easy to get lost there scrolling through beautiful pictures board after board.

I basically create 3 types of mood boards.

#1 Monthly mood boards: According to the season, upcoming holidays, my mood or what projects I'm currently working on, I choose up to 10 photos that I feel represent the vibe of the month. They mights be photographs, works of art, abstract drawings ot patterns etc. I often also include some fave quotes and song lyrics, album covers and movie/video screencaps.

#2 Themed mood boards: These are actually my fave because I'm one of those people who have lots of hobbies and interest in various areas so I often feel inspired by random different things. That's why I choose a simple theme for my mood board: a color, aesthetic, art or music genre , some fave brands, artist or time period etc. This allows me to combine really different images and make the mood board interesting. And right after I've chosen my theme I go searching for the most expressive images that represent it and I think would look good next to each other.

#3 'Current mood' mood boards: A lovely idea that I'm happy I came up with I think a few years ago. You know how sometimes a new trend comes along and everybody loves it for a few months? Or sometimes you are in a period of loving a definite singer or band and listening to their music on repeat? This is a great chance for creating a 'current mood' mood board including all those things that are exclusive inspiring and exciting for you right now.

How it's done: a.k.a. The practical DIY part

I think it's best to have the photos printed because what our brains love the most and find the most impressive is 'touchable' images. You can just print them and cut each one out so that you can organize them on a wall near your desk/work space. You could also hook them on a string/strings and turn them into decor pieces. Or you can create a photo collage to print and frame. There are many useful apps, programs and websites for that - plus even Word can do the job for you if you're not into working with new software. Cool thing is you can also use this photo collage as a wallpaper for your phone, tablet or computer. Thus you'll be able to bring inspiration everywhere.
