Imagine that tomorrow is Halloween, but you still haven’t decided what to dress up as! You definitely can’t show up to school wearing your uniform because you could not find a costume. Look no further, here are some quick and easy costumes ideas that you can find in your closet!

Static Cling
All you need for this costume is safety pins and socks. You can wear anything you want, all you have to do is safety pin the socks to your clothes.

Unless your parents don’t cook, it’s not that hard to find an apron lying somewhere in the closet. Just put this on and grab a wooden spoon from your closet, and you are all set.

Black Cat
This is probably the easiest costume to make. Just throw on all the black clothes that you can find, then draw some whiskers on your face with some black eyeliner.

Remember that hideous pair of green jeans from fifth grade stuffed in the back of your closet? Grab them and an orange shirt, then use black eyeliner to draw a cute carved pumpkin design on your face. This costume goes right along with the Halloween theme.

You don’t have to have been a bridesmaid for this costume. All you need is a super cute dress (remember that one you wore to prom?) and a cute pinned up hairstyle. Holding a bouquet of flowers is optional.

Phoebe Buffay
While her style may have been eccentric, it isn’t that hard to dress up like her. Look in your closet for a maxi dress and a short sleeved shirt, which you could even layer over a long sleeved t-shirt. Pair this ensemble with any other clothes that you feel would add to Phoebe’s “look”. Using a guitar would also make this costume ten times more authentic.

This costume is easy enough. All you need is that prom or even black and white dress you wore last year. Add a cute tiara (you could even make one out of paper), and you have suddenly become part of monarchy.

For this costume, you only need a striped shirt (it doesn’t even need to be red and white) and a pair of jeans. Have a cute beanie? This will add to the overall look of the costume.

Are you in love with football? Need a little extra change for school but you have nowhere to put it? If you answered ‘yes’ to these questions, then this costume is perfect for you. All you need to do is tape quarters onto your back, and you are a “quarterback”.

Pinterest Board
In love with Pinterest? Well this costume lets you show everyone what you really love. You can wear whatever you want, all you have to do is safety pin anything you like (pictures, candy, clothes, etc.) to yourself and suddenly you have transformed into your Pinterest Board.
