For all of you procrastinators this October, here are some last minute Halloween costume ideas you can assemble in minutes and are virtually cheap, or free.
Ghost: A Halloween classic: Cut holes for eyes in an old sheet.
Zombie: With AMC's television series Walking Dead so popular this October, your zombie costume will look like you've planned this all along. Rip up and dirty some old clothes and splatter with fake blood or red paint. Paint your face a grayish tone with white and black face paint, color your eyes in black and mess your hair for a zombie effect.
Trashy: This one will literally cost you nothing. Wear a trash bag as a dress or shirt and mess your hair. Voila, you're trashy. Add some banana peels or food wrappers for added effect.
Cereal Killer: Wear all black and pin a cereal box or two to your shirt. Carry a bloody fake knife and perhaps add some blood to your shirt.
Chick Magnet: Print out pictures of yellow baby chicks and a magnets.
Vampire: Classic cool Halloween costume. Paint your face white, drizzle some blood from your mouth and wear all black. If you can, grab yourself a pair of fangs from a Halloween store.
Quarter Pounder: Carry a quarter, or print out an enlarged photo of a quarter, and carry a hammer. You're a quarter pounder.
Static Cling: Dress normally and tape socks, panty hose, underwear and drier sheets to you for Static Cling.
Cat's Out of the Bag: Wear cat ears and carry a brown paper bag. Cat's Out of the Bag.
Meteorologist: Wear a white shirt, or any button down shirt, and tie with pipe cleaners taped underneath it. Contort the tie with pipe cleaners attached to make the tie look like it is blowing in the wind. Carry a make-shift microphone or a stack of papers. Blow dry your hair so it is swept back. Now, you're a meteorologist in a bad storm.
