Halloween is approaching quickly; do you have a costume yet? Not to worry. Here are some last minute costumes you can put together with items you already have.


Group Costumes

Zenon (number of people: any)

Wear any solid-colored spandex pants and long sleeves if you want to recreate this Disney Channel throwback.


Sex and the City (number of people: 4)

Honestly, this costume is just for four people who feel like dressing up a bit. Just be sure to take an online quiz that tells you which Sex and the City character you are so you’re prepared when people ask you who you’re supposed to be.


Friends (number of people: 6)

This is the perfect time to wear that outfit your roommate wouldn’t let you go out in public in because it was “too 90s.”




Inside Out (number of people: 5)

Choose an emotion and dress entirely in the corresponding color.


Solo Costumes

Cookie Lyons from Empire

This costume requires a lot of leopard print and even more sass.

Cher Horowitz from Clueless

Blazer and plaid skirt required, shopping bags and fuzzy pen optional.


Kimmy Schmidt from The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

Break out the neon clothes you promised yourself you would never wear in the same outfit.



Rosie the Riveter

This costume requires a chambray button down, a red bandana, and a willingness to do the pose whenever anybody asks you to (because everyone will).


Wednesday Addams from The Addams Family

This costume is for the person who has a closet full of black clothing and an ability to braid hair.


Mia Thermopolis from The Princess Diaries

Calling all frizzy-haired girls who own Doc Martens and a school uniform of any kind: embrace the frizz.






Shaun from Shaun of the Dead

It’s time to break out that ketchup-stained shirt you keep forgetting to clean.


Jim Halpert’s Halloween costume from The Office

This one is simple, really. Get a nametag and write literally any name you want on it.


Be sure to show off your costume at the Day of the Dead Dance in Ochre Court on Friday, October 30. There will be prizes! Tickets are on sale for $5 in Wakehurst.
