Not to worry you but Halloween is in two days... what?! You still haven't decided what you're dressing up as?! Don't worry, I've got you covered! If you're not like me and you didn't have your Halloween costume picked out and made/bought before the 1st of October (I just get too excited okay.. lol!) you don't need to worry, there are plenty of amazing last minute costumes that you can probably make using clothes you already have in your wardrobe! So, for all you last minute people out there I've made a list of 30 DIY costumes that you can definitely put together before Halloween - now you have no excuse to not dress up! I hope you enjoy this list of costumes, let me know in the comments what your favourite costume from the list is/what you're being for Halloween this year - I'm going as a vampire! Also, if you're feeling Halloween-y be sure to check out my other Halloween posts including the Halloween Tag post, where I talk about Halloween memories and my favourite scary movies and my Pumpkin Carving Party post where I show you the little party that I hosted for my friends where we carved pumpkins and did all things Halloween-y!
