Nothing is worse than feeling unprepared and stressed out about what costume you are going to wear to a last minute Halloween party.

This costume is more of a comical one. An adult dressing as a child is fun and easy to get creative with. If you already have kids, you probably already have some of the props you need. For this costume you need an onesie, blanket, teddy bear, pacifier, and a cute hairstyle with some cute bows or ribbons.


This costume is made to make you feel and look beautiful just like you did on that special day. If you want to add a more scary approach, you can go as a zombie bride by easily adding fake blood to your costume.

If you’re not at all worried about being unoriginal or someone having the same costume as you, this is a well-known quick and easy DIY costume. All you will need for this costume is: Black shirt, black pants, black shoes, a black bow tie, cat ears, cat tail, and black eyeliner!

Baseball Player

This one is very modest but one of the cuter options if you are going for something minimal! The chances of you having what you need for this costume already are high. You will need a white or grey t-shirt, grey or black leggings, a red baseball hat, red high knee socks, converse, and a baseball glove. You can use makeup to create eye-black!
