15 Awesome Last-Minute DIY Halloween Costumes From Your Closet

We’ve all been there: October begins, and you think, “Hm, I should start thinking about my Halloween costume now so I’m prepared.” Then you think, “Eh, I have 31 days. No need to stress.” Suddenly, October flies by, and before you know it, it’s three days before Halloween and you STILL don’t have a costume. As you make plans with your friends and everyone around you asks you what you’re going to be, you’re scrambling around, shifting through the leftover costumes in the store and racking your brain for an idea that doesn’t seem impossible.

I’ve been there too. Last year, I forgot that I needed two costumes, and the day before Halloween, I was in a panic with nothing to wear. I ended up just throwing on a black dress, cat ears and some cute cat makeup and being – can you guess? – a cat. It was fine, though. The costume was cute and I still had a good time. It’s just proof that there ARE costume options that you can create with what you already have in your closet. If you’ve been procrastinating, here are 15 amazing DIY last-minute Halloween costume ideas you can almost definitely do in 24 hours or less:

    The A costume looks a lot like a costume for a modern Hester Prynne (from the Scarlet Letter). She’s also a super awesome person.
