Last-Minute Halloween Costumes

DIY Quickest Halloween Costume Ever

It won't win you any contests, but at least it counts!


Maybe you (or someone you're married to) left your Halloween costume to the last minute, and maybe Halloween is a big deal at your (or someone you're married to's) workplace... maybe in that case you'll need a super last-minute costume.

Or maybe you're just not a big Halloween person, but you're going to a party and you'll seem like a big party-pooper if you don't dress up at all.

Well, my friends, this may be the costume for you. Not exactly sure which category Ben fits into... probably a little of both.

Nope, I can't take credit for this not-sure-if-I'd-even-consider-it-clever idea, but as Ben was furiously googling last-minute Halloween costume ideas last night, this was the only option that was practical (it was 9:30 pm, and we only had my craft supplies at our disposal) and appropriate (sorry, covering him with wrapping paper and making a tag that read "To: Women, From: God" wasn't going to make the cut).

Now while the original idea suggested "Draw seven C's on your face. You're the Seven Seas," going into work with letters drawn on his face isn't really Ben's style, so I suggested we simply cut the letters out of leftover felt and tape them on his regular workday attire. And it worked.

Really, that's it. No need for a tutorial here.

Not a crafter? Don't have a stash of felt or fabric? Got any paper? Use that. Cardboard from a cereal box? There you go! Look around your house and see if you can cut anything into C's. Or if you really don't have time, draw seven C's on an old t-shirt.

Still too much effort? Then grab a marker and draw seven C's right on your face.

Whatever works for you, good luck, and Happy Halloween!



Got a little more time? Make an adorable DIY Witch Costume or a Ferocious Shark Costume from a Hooded Sweatshirt.
