So you forgot that Halloween is only days away and you have no idea how you'll ever come up with a great costume in time. Well that's no problem at all with the insanely easy-to-assemble costume options that CultureMap has rounded up for you.
1). Have a fanny pack? Add a Hawaiian shirt, bright shorts and a camera and you've got yourself a full-blown tourist costume. You should probably wear socks with sandals and add a visor or a "I Love NY" button to top off the ensemble.
2). You could opt for the Wednesday Addams look with braided pigtails and a black blouse and skirt. Just add a grimace and a dismissive attitude and you've got a solid costume.
3). Show off your inner nerd by pairing a short-sleeve button down shirt with a bow-tie and some thick-rimmed glasses — taped in the middle, of course. Have a pocket protector filled with pens, maybe even a protractor, and you're good to go. Note: Incorporating plaid or suspenders adds extra costume points.
4). If you're a fan of Seinfeld, head down to the thrift store and find a long floral-print dress and patent leather shoes to assemble an amazing Elaine Benes costume. Be sure to complete the look with a poofy hairdo and some terrible dance moves.
5). Pair a red and white striped shirt with blue jeans, glasses and a knitted hat and you've got a great Waldo costume that you can easily put together last minute. Feel free to add a camera or brown messenger bag if you've got it.
6). Love the movie Clueless? Bring back the 1990s with a plaid skirt, crop-top and some knee highs to make the perfect Cher Horowitz costume. Adding a furry backpack would be a major bonus.
7). Feel like showing off your feminist side? Dress as Rosie the Riveter with jeans, a denim shirt and a red bandana, and be sure to finish it off with some bright red lipstick.
8). For a simple Breaking Bad costume, wear a button-down shirt, "tighty-whities" and glasses. Bring along some blue rock candy and you'll be Walter White in no time at all.
