20 Last Minute Costumes You Can Make With Clothes You Already Own

Every October, I do the same exact thing: in the beginning of the month, I vow to come up with the perfect costume idea, so I spend a lot of time looking for one. I think of something good, then proceed to procrastinate buying absolutely anything that would make that perfect costume idea come to fruition.
