I love Halloween costumes. I think they’re (normally) really fun and I always like to see what everyone decides to get dressed as. But, as someone who is very lazy, it can be hard for me to put something together in time for Halloween. I spend hours looking through Halloween costume posts and am amazed at some people’s creative ideas, but when it comes to my actual costume, I tend to draw a blank. People with elaborate makeup look amazing, but I don’t have the time or skill to do any of that. I don’t want to be that girl who doesn’t dress up, but I also want to do something that is easy and still unique. It can be hard to have an awesome costume when you’re lazy AF.
Gone are the days where you head to the costume store and pay too much for an itchy polyester costume. It may not have been as fun, but it certainly didn’t take as much time! But here is some good news: there are some really simple costumes that will take you less than five minutes to put together, so you can wait until the last minute to decide what to wear, which is what always happens to us lazy girls anyway. Take a look at these genius costume ideas that will take little-to-no effort.
Life Give You LemonsThis costume can either be a super simple take on the popular phrase "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade," or it could be a Beyoncé reference. You decide! All you need is cardboard and lemons. Source: Instagram

Death EaterWe all know Harry Potter costumes are always in, but if you don't want to be a Hogwarts student this year, try to switch it up and be a Death Eater. Draw a super-creepy snake on your arm, wear all black, and you're good! Source: Instagram

Emoji PunsIf you love the emoji idea, you can get a little creative and print out emoji's and hang it around your neck. This particular one is "House Wife," but you could come up with something else, like printing a cat and old woman emoji to be a "cat lady" Punny, right? you're welcome. Source: Instagram
